Chinese Academia Ghost-writing ‘Widespread’

From BBC News:

More than $100m (£63m) changes hands in China every year for ghost-written academic papers, according to research by a Chinese university.

The study, by Wuhan University, says Chinese and students often buy and sell scientific papers to swell publications lists.

Many of the purported authors never write the papers they sign.

China ranks second behind the United States by number of academic papers published every year.
