This Special Issue solicits social scientific articles examining not
only traditional forms of misconduct, but also modalities of misconduct
that are meant to “game” the modern metrics-based regimes of academic
evaluation. If traditional misconduct – fabrication, falsification, and
plagiarism – concerned fraudulent ways to produce scholarly
publications, much of the new misconduct targets the publication system
itself, for example by producing fake peer reviews, citation rings among
authors and journals, or by publishing articles in dubious journals.
