(Global Times) Berlin-based publisher Springer announced on Friday that it has withdrawn 107 articles written by Chinese institutions from 2012 to 2016 from its journal Tumor Biology.

"We are retracting these published papers because the peer review process required for publication in our journals had been deliberately compromised by fabricated peer reviewer reports," read Springer's statement, according to retractionwatch.com, a website that reports on retractions of scientific papers.

From the list the Springer posted, the authors involved in the retraction are all from Chinese institutions, mostly medical institutes such as the Department of Neurosurgery, Tongji Hospital under Tongji University in Shanghai.

So why does academic malpractice occur in China? Will it hurt China’s rising reputation as a research powerhouse? What could be done to curb dishonesty in academia?

When the work performance is measurable, our people could try everything to reach those requirements, whether it's the number of published paper  or GDP growth.
