Publishing for easy credits: an Indonesian case

The pressure to publish is a familiar sensation for most academics, but it weighs heavier on some than on others. Knowledge of a particular language, for example, will often mean the difference between being able to publish for an international audience or not. Here I comment on the Indonesian case, as an example of the lengths gone to for career advancement. With the pressure high and the predatory publishers on the lure, scholars’ choices are often understandable, but standards of quality control must be improved if the reputations of academics, and the scientific world of research, are to be protected.
