Assunto da Mensagem:  Causes for research misconduct in Germany ?

Below four cases of research misconduct acts by German scientists:

a) Karl Lenhard Rudolph, Leibniz Institute Director was found guilty in 2017 of “grossly negligent scientific misconduct.”..suspected breaches of the animal welfare (having admitted that 13,000 mice were killed unnecessarily) drug law, as well as embezzlement…

b) Joachim Boldt, the German champion of retracted papers

c) Diederik-Stapels

d) Jan Hendrik Schön

If as argued before Chinese research misconduct are in a great part the result of wrong paying policies linking publication in high impact factor journals and generous bonuses what could be the explanations for German misconduct acts, a country in which the salaries of scientists are not influenced by publication in high impact journals ?

The publication below mention Vanity, Self-Aggrandizement, Narcissism and even a “‘Messianic complex” of researchers that believe that they already know the truth and are only interested in data that confirm that truth:

Also another publication below conveys an interesting hypothesis of Rich being Less Ethical:
Piff, P.; Stancato, D.; Horberg, J. (2016) Wealth and Wrongdoing: Social Class Differences in Ethical Reasoning and Behavior. In Cheating, corruption, and concealment: The roots of dishonesty (Eds) Van Prooijen & Van Lange, Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press.
