Journals in all disciplines continue to face ethical issues. Allegations of author misconduct can be time consuming and frustrating to deal with. This panel will address a number of pressing questions about ethics in publishing, including

  • Are ethical issues increasing in publishing? 
  • What new activities in terms of ethical breaches or concerns should publishers be aware of?
  • Are there any technical solutions available or on the horizon to detect ethical lapses? 
  • How can scientists be educated about ethical conduct? 

Join us and bring your questions! All are welcome to Ask an Expert.
