AbstractThis article discusses the role cultural background may play in research misconduct. Applying theories from sociological criminology, the author looks at the theory that the culture some researchers bring may be at odds with the norms of academic science and may emphasize ends more than means. As such, cultural background may be one of many factors that contribute to research misconduct, and should be studied in this academic light.
