For new readers and those who request to be“好友 good friends”  please read my 公告 firstIn earlier blogs of ScienceNet, there were  plenty of articles (including those by myself) reporting on the irregular behaviors of Chinese authors/scholars regarding the publishing of scientific articles and the bad influence of the tight coupling of fame and fortune. These are well known. However, recently for the first time, I read in the pages of ScienceNet about the practice of paying cash rewards to authors for the publication of article in prestige journals. See Nature 批评国内大学对CNS论文奖励http://blog.sciencenet.cn/blog-39731-1066041.html as well as reporting of this in oversea publications.“The Truth aboutChina’s Cash-for-Publication Policy - MIT Technology  Reviewhttps://www.technologyreview.com/s/608266/the-truth-about-chinas-cash-for-publication-policy/?utm_source=The+Sinocism+China+Newsletter&utm_campaign=9a4e861aa6-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_07_13&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_171f237867-9a4e861aa6-29662525&mc_cid=9a4e861aa6&mc_eid=075fc46cc2which documented the wide spread nature of this practice with detailed  data about the amount of payment for publication of paper in individual journals depending  on its impact factors. While I appreciate society providing incentives/rewards for excellence in research, this is really carrying the tight coupling of “fame and fortune”   to another level never imagined by me. The unintended consequence of this will further delay the recognition and respect of Chinese science  and technology on the world stage. I was shocked by my own naivety. No wonder my wife  told me years ago that I am unfit to live in China long term.
