The Gen­eral Of­fice of the Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and the Gen­eral Of­fice of the State Coun­cil, China’s Cab­i­net, re­cently is­sued a doc­u­ment to en­hance hon­esty in sci­en­tific re­search.

The aim is to op­ti­mize the tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion en­vi­ron­ment and pro­mote the es­tab­lish­ment of an in­sti­tu­tional sys­tem to pre­vent mis­con­duct in sci­en­tific re­search. The doc­u­ment calls for at­ten­tion to be paid to both the pre­ven­tion and pun­ish­ment of mis­con­duct in sci­en­tific re­search, and for a zero-tol­er­ance at­ti­tude to be held to­ward dis­hon­est be­hav­ior in sci­en­tific re­search.

The Min­istry of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy will be re­spon­si­ble for pre­vent­ing sci­en­tific re­search mis­con­duct in the nat­u­ral sci­ence field, while the Chi­nese Academy of So­cial Sciences will take charge in the fields of phi­los­o­phy and so­cial sciences.

A sys­tem to en­sure hon­esty in sci­en­tific re­search is essen­tial in or­der to en­cour­age sci­en­tific re­search and in­no­va­tion, and to cre­ate a solid base for build­ing China into a world class tech­nol­ogy power.

In ad­di­tion, a life­time ac­count­abil­ity sys­tem for aca­demic cheat­ing will be es­tab­lished, and those caught cheat­ing will be se­ri­ously dealt with.
