Paper mills in medical research: a serious ethical issue
Ethical research is an integral part of institutional and professional integrity, both for scientist her/himself as well as the associated institution. Maintaining ethics and truthfulness in research manuscripts not only adds valuable information in global body of knowledge but also encourages and inspires other researchers as well. With passage of time, these practices have become complex in nature and hard to identify. One of such research dereliction is termed as “Paper Mills”.
