會議簡報 | Supporting research integrity administrators’ professional decision-making: Taiwan’s experience

In this talk, I introduced the role of RIOs in Taiwanese research institutions, including their general duties and the challenges and mental struggles that may be experienced during the process of managing research misconduct allegations. I also suggested possible solutions to improve such situations.

研究論文 | 〔預刊稿〕美國國家科學基金會研究違失案件之分類與處置:1989─2019年

美國國家科學基金會(NSF)是全球少數會將研究違失案件公告上網的機構。我們利用 NSF 的案件資料庫為工具,分析過去三十年間的 3,064 起疑似研究違失案件,並探討這些案件在數量與類型上的消長情形,以及違失行為與處分方式間的關聯性。所有人都不樂見任何違反學術倫理的情事發生。但一旦發生,就不要浪費每一次的教訓;善用這些機會,找到案件能賦予給其他研究人員的教育與警惕意義。

研究論文 | Taiwanese and American graduate students’ misconceptions regarding responsible conduct of research: A cross-national comparison using a two-tier test approach

My new article has been published in Science and Engineering Ethics. In this piece, I discussed how cross-research system students might view responsible conduct of research (RCR) in different ways and the utility of applying two-tier tests in RCR instruction.

研究論文 | 學術寫作之新倫理議題「自我抄襲」:內涵演進、真實案例、現行規範與預防之道

近年學術倫理在臺灣受到高度的重視,但由於對自我抄襲的理解與討論有限,故在其認定原則與標準上,尚缺乏明確的共識。有鑑於此,本文之目的在於釐清自我抄襲的內涵,以協助學術界能由更正向與多元的角度看待這個新倫理議題。本文以文本分析法,研析過去與自我抄襲相關的文獻與規範。在論述上,本文首先探討自我抄襲的內涵,包含此概念的演進歷程、定義、判定方式、納入與排除的具體情事,以及應避免為之的原因;接續透過發生於荷蘭的真實案例,敘說自我抄襲所引起的兩極化爭議;本文亦整理出臺灣中央主管機關在自我抄襲相關規範上之沿革,並於文末提出有助於預防自我抄襲的辦法。

研究論文 | 台灣研究人員學術倫理概念調查研究之初探:以科技部公布之學術抄襲、未適當引註及自我抄襲概念為例

本研究透過匿名調查問卷,蒐集到台灣研究人員(包括五位學術倫理專家與232位科技部專題研究計畫主持人)之問卷,探討其對學術抄襲、未適當引註及自我抄襲等概念之理解。
The present study adopts a survey method, inviting five experts of academic ethics and 232 local researchers (i.e., principal investigators [PIs] of MOST-funded research projects) to explore their (mis)understanding regarding the topics of plagiarism, improper citations, and self-plagiarism through case scenarios.
