Cheaters may prosper, but community doesn’t – Xinhua

From Xinhua (link):

In Chinese , published dissertations closely correlate with a teacher’s promotion, salary and other perks. Instead of placing emphasis on the quality of research findings, the number of books and research papers that have been published is deemed as a benchmark for the successful academic career of a professor.

As a result, many are driven into a race to compete each other for the quantity of papers and books rather than for the quality of these publications.

Then, research has become a means of getting a paper or book published, which will help the researchers climb the ladder of academic echelon or even get official ranks.

The motivation has gone astray.
