This paper aims to respond to Curno’s piece on the Challenges to ethical publishing in the digital era.
In this response, the author argues that a focus on “publication ethics” may perpetuate the problem of unethical conduct because such a focus ignores the influences of the educational ethics pipeline.
As a result, the author issues two calls for action: we must cease operating in our ethical silos and educational leaders must publicly recognize the problem of unethical conduct and fully commit to addressing it.
This response challenges the notions of ethical silos and the inaction by educational institutions to properly train ethical professionals, authors and researchers.
