Embo reports | Conflicts of interest in scientific publishing

lkfitz's bookmarks 2017-11-22


"Gold OA has some drawbacks. Most importantly, it creates a conflict of interest: in a situation where the number of scientists is larger than the number of available positions, both journals and scientists benefit from publishing as many articles as possible [3]. This is a fertile ground for cheaters on both sides, and helps to explain the emergence of predatory journals [4] and the increasing number of cases of scientific misconduct [5]."
