Author misconduct: not just the editors' responsibility

Brice Browne, Julie and Bligh, John 2005. Author misconduct: not just the editors' responsibility. Medical Education 39 (1) , pp. 83-89. 10.1111/j.1365-2929.2004.02027.x

This paper argues that misconduct affects a wider group than editors, although it is editors who are currently taking the lead in the promotion of standards. The authors suggest that responsibility for maintaining and improving standards in research publication should not be left to editors but should be seen as something in which all researchers have a stake. They support moves to make editors themselves more accountable to their readers and authors.
