Monday the 17th June 2019 – 11:30 am – 1 pm : Workshop “Ethics of publication (integrity, ethics, plagiarism, etc.)”

The rapid and important increase in the number of publications in the area of ​​SHS and their posting has opened up new issues in the field of scientific ethics. As in the natural sciences, the provision of raw data from research has allowed, in theory, a deeper verification of results by the scientific community, and the tools for cross-checking publications have been developed (automatic tracking software, plagiarism, discussion forums for scientific publications, movements for transparency of data such as TOP guidelines).

However, plagiarism practices are greatly facilitated by online publishing, while the pressure to publish quickly and lowering the publication barrier through self-publishing tools can sometimes lead to deterioration in quality of the scientific and formal work that is already available.

The issue of developing an ethics of publication, that would be shared by publishers, authors and readers (who are now more often in active situation back on what they read and can be mobilized as a community on many levels, as savant, political and economic, is araising in a renewed way.

This workshop will bring together Michelle Bergadaà, Véronique Ginouvès and Matthieu Noucher.
