Measures may not be enough to stem the tide, some fear

 

China’s main basic research agency is cracking down on scientists who used fake peer reviews to publish papers, demanding that serious offenders return research funding. The move accompanies an announcement by the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) in Beijing, first reported by state media on 12 November, that it had investigated dozens of scientists involved in peer-review scams. The probe’s findings highlighted the role of China’s many unscrupulous paper brokers, which peddle ghostwritten or fraudulent papers. (...) - Science, by Mara Hvistedahl, 20 November 2015

[China] Anti-corruption watchdog targets top university

Some of China’s top universities are coming under scrutiny as part of the country’s anti-corruption drive, with Shanghai’s prestigious Fudan University last week named and shamed by anti-graft watchdog the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

In an unusual move, the commission published its report on Fudan and some other unlinked organisations, saying it was publicising its findings in the hope of spurring “public supervision” of organisations. (....) - University World News, by Yojana Sharma, 09 July 2014 Issue No:328

Universities: China's rankings rising

China's research spending is helping the nation to catch up with Japan in terms of elite universities.

China's higher-education star is rising, while Japan's is waning, according to the Times Higher Education's Asia University Rankings 2014. Japan dropped two institutions from the top 100, whereas mainland China added four. But Japan still leads the Asian nations with 20 top-100 universities; China is second with 18, and South Korea third with 14. Thomson Reuters, which collates the data, bases the rankings on 13 indicators, including research and technology transfer. China has advanced mostly as a result of increasing its research expenditure, says a Thomas Reuters spokesperson, whereas Japan's research budget has remained flat.

Postgraduate studies shunned as free tuition scrapped

The Chinese government's decision to scrap free tuition for postgraduate studies - including masters degrees and PhDs - is driving more graduating students to enter the job market instead of remaining in higher education. The trend is likely to intensify the graduate unemployment problem in the country this year.

Free postgraduate studies come to an end at centrally funded universities in China from the 2014 academic year that starts in September.(...) - University World News, by Yojana Sharma, 01 May 2014 Issue No:318

Executive business degrees, or EMBAs, have traditionally been a money-spinner for China’s universities, charging high fees. But this year has seen a sharp drop in applications as an ongoing government anti-corruption campaign has curbed funding for officials eligible for the courses.

Universities have had to give up planned tuition fee rises for EMBA courses, despite the hikes already having been approved by the authorities, the official China Daily newspaper reported this week, noting that fewer government officials and executives from state-owned enterprises had signed up to study compared to 2012.
