AbstractThe article reports on the issuance of ethics guidelines and formation of a panel to police conduct in the social sciences by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in China. According to MOE spokesperson Wang Xuming, though it is difficult to ascertain the number of misconduct cases, the impact of these cases must not be underestimated. Scientific leaders acknowledge the need for change in the system due to the unprecedented number of researchers stand accused of misconduct, the lack of oversight in how grant money is handed out, and high expectations of results in a short amount of time.
