Assunto: 2019___Research ethics now a strategic priority for doctoral schools

https://www.universityworldnews.com/pos ... 8062920255

“Research ethics and integrity has become one of the top strategic priorities in doctoral education in Europe, according to a landscape report published by the European University Association’s Council for Doctoral Education... the importance attributed to research ethics and integrity is remarkable: several years ago, this topic rarely showed up in the debates and publications in this area. It shows how important the issue of research ethics and integrity has become for universities in a very short time”

It almost seems that the email entitled"THE FUTURE CORE BUSINESS OF UNIVERSITY IS ETHICS" that i sent to a lot of Colleagues in July of 2016 (below) is making much more sense now. Be there as it may when i read the "New European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity" i can´t stop feel that very smart foxes are guarding the henhouse because there´s nothing there on paper factories, ghost authorship or about the need to tackle the vicious neophilia disease.

Subject: New European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity

Following the email below of March 28 about "mafia money" in academia that was mentioned in a post by the German science journalist Leonid Schneider see below the link on the New European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity http://ec.europa.eu/research/index.cfm? ... a-240317-1

Also worth seeing is the link concerning the fact that the German Research Foundation has banned for 5 years the scientist Tina Wenz to apply to research funds http://retractionwatch.com/2017/04/03/g ... uct-probe/

And a yesterday post regarding an interview with Richard Harris, author of a book on reproducibility can be seen here http://retractionwatch.com/2017/04/04/f ... ucibility/

Assunto: The "mafia" in academia !

Last year a lot of Colleagues have found that the post of the so called science watchdog Dr. Leonid Schneider from Germany was some how very exaggerated when he wrote about the pizzo, the mafia protection money https://forbetterscience.com/2016/08/03 ... ion-money/ but this year some news that come from US universities show us that a strange pattern is emerging in academia...it seems that "big earners" have a special status and are less likely to be punished in spite of repeated scientific misconduct:

http://www.slate.com/articles/health_an ... tists.html

Universities don’t seem very interested in exposing this fraud—in fact, quite the opposite. And why would they be? Misconduct on campus is bad for their reputations, regardless of a researcher’s stature. And for the big earners, killing golden geese is hardly good for business

For the record, although i congratulate Leonid Schneider for his crusade against scientific misconduct i disagree with the concept of "zombie scientist" coined by him and i also disagree with some of his harassment like behaviour when he insist in placing photos or drawings of academic offenders on his site in what it seems like a which hunt. Furthermore, its important to bear in mind the content of articles 10 and 11 of the Human Declaration of Human Rights (below). This means that first of all the academic community must define an international ethics code where the penalties for any kind of scientific misconduct are clearly established. Only then its possible to fairly judge and condemn academic offenders.

Article 10.
Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.
Article 11.
(1) Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.
(2) No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed.

Assunto: THE FUTURE CORE BUSINESS OF UNIVERSITY IS ETHICS

Currently business companies already publish thousands of scientific papers each year http://link.springer.com/article/10.100 ... 1-014-9391.

By 2010 the Japanese group Toto had 1200 patent requests on the area of photocatalysis only with 500 international patents already approved. In 2014 only 5 companies had more than 20.000 patents http://fortune.com/2015/02/24/most-pate ... nies-2014/ this is a small sign that corporate business will outrun thousands of universities concerning patents. Also Coursera, Udemy, Udacity and a lot of other MOOC providers will reduce the university learning market https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive_o ... ine_course so what should the core business of the universities be ? My bet is a very short word. The future core business of university is ethics. Something that no business company can provide. It was Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) who said it "Only integrity is going to count...You have to decide, on the outset, if you want to make money, or to make sense"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckminster_Fuller
