Publication ethics

Science publications are important for scientific work and for scientific merit. In recent years the publication system has begun to change rapidly. For example, more weight given to impact and citations, the emergence of a fraud industry, and new forms for publishing (such as open access or with repositories) and peer review (such as pre-publication or post-publication review) give rise to new questions and challenges. In publication ethics we ponder these changes and how to deal with them and their consequences.
