Publishing ethics in child and adolescent psychiatry: Essentials for authors and readers
Walter, G., Rey, J. M., Soh, N., & Bloch, S. (2008). Publishing ethics in child and adolescent psychiatry: Essentials for authors and readers. Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America, 17(1), 149-163. doi:10.1016/j.chc.2007.07.002
The ethics of publishing has received negligible attention in the child and adolescent psychiatry literature. We examine a range of ethical problems, including conflict of interest, bias, publishing fraudulent or inhumane research, redundant publication, plagiarism, concerns about authorship, insensitive use of language, and special issues about publishing research involving minors. Strategies to improve ethical standards of publishing are proposed.
