Rights and Permissions

Truthfulness and honesty are absolute essentials of research. But to sustain in the not-so-pleasant “publish-or-perish” environment and “cut-throat” competition to increase the credibility associated with one's name, many individual researchers as well as research groups are turning towards research misconduct and this plague is gradually reaching epidemic and pandemic proportions.
