New laws to clamp down on academic cheating at China's universities
could come into effect later this year as the rampant problems of plagiarism,
falsification etc are increasing.
The focus is also on
lying about credentials and research papers and other misconduct
continue unabated in higher education.
But some experts say the measure will not be adequate to
curb cheating, and others dismissed the release in March of the regulations for
public consultation as a government ploy to placate a restive public that
something is being done about misconduct.
