The Academy of Management’s Ethics Education Committee has produced an eight part Ethics of Research & Publishing Video Series. Videos range from 5 to 10 minutes in length, and topics include authorship, plagiarism, reporting research, and publishing in journals. The videos could be used in seminars, classes, and lab meetings to facilitate discussion about these and related issues.
