This paper aims to reflect on the area of publication ethics as related to scholarship responding to Curno’s invited paper, “Challenges to ethical publishing in the digital era”.


This viewpoint draws up the rich experience of the author over an extended academic career. The constructed view blends empiricism and literary sources to develop justified position.


There is resonance with Curno’s view. However, a counter position regarding the effect of the Internet on plagiarism is offered. Opinion is given which extends across disciplines rather than remaining in the confines of science and technology.


The response to Curno’s paper provides some alternative views and suggests directions in which the landscape of concern might be extended.
