Publish or Perish in China

The journal Nature has an article about academic pressures and misconduct in China. Only the first paragraph is available without subscription on the Nature website:

The latest in a string of high-profile academic fraud cases in China underscores the problems of an academic-evaluation system that places disproportionate emphasis on publications, critics say. Editors at the UK-based journal Acta Crystallographica Section E last month retracted 70 published crystal structures that they allege are fabrications by researchers at Jinggangshan University in Jiangxi province.

But the Global Times discussion forum has reposted the article in full (blanking out the names of Chinese academics and universities mentioned).
