    A Retrospective Analysis of the Trend of Retracted Publications in the Field of Biomedical and Life Sciences.Jong Yong Abdiel Foo - 2011 - Science and Engineering Ethics 17 (3):459-468.
    Among the many forms of research misconduct, publishing fraudulent data is considered to be serious where the confidence and validity of the research is detrimentally undermined. In this study, the trend of 303 retracted publications from 44 authors (with more than three retracted publications each) was analysed. The results showed that only 6.60% of the retracted publications were single-authored and the discovery of fraudulent publications had reduced from 52.24 months (those published before the year 2000) to 33.23 months (those published (...)

    An Analysis on the Research Ethics Cases Managed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Between 1997 and 2010.Jong Yong Abdiel Foo & Stephen James Wilson - 2012 - Science and Engineering Ethics 18 (4):621-631.
    The growing emphasis on the importance of publishing scientific findings in the academic world has led to increasing prevalence of potentially significant publications in which scientific and ethical rigour may be questioned. This has not only hindered research progress, but also eroded public trust in all scientific advances. In view of the increasing concern and the complexity of research misconduct, the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) was established in 1997 to manage cases with ethical implications. In order to review the (...)

    A Study on Journal Self-Citations and Intra-Citing Within the Subject Category of Multidisciplinary Sciences.Jong Yong Abdiel Foo - 2009 - Science and Engineering Ethics 15 (4):491-501.
    For academic research outcomes, there is an increasing emphasis on the bibliometric scorings like the journal impact factor and citations when the assessment of the scientific merits of research or researchers is required. Currently, no known study has been conducted to explore the bibliographical trends of the subject category of multidisciplinary sciences as indexed by the annual Journal Citation Reports of the Thomson Scientific. The effect of journal self-citations and intra-citing within a discipline to the bibliometric data computation can be (...)

    Impact of Excessive Journal Self-Citations: A Case Study on the Folia Phoniatrica Et Logopaedica Journal.Jong Yong Abdiel Foo - 2011 - Science and Engineering Ethics 17 (1):65-73.
    There is an increasing trend towards assessing the scientific performance of researchers and institutions of higher learning in the form of journal publications and the associated citations. Currently, the journal impact factor (JIF) value is the most widely used measure for any academic contents. However, there are growing concerns for the unethical practices adopted by journal editors to manipulate the JIF computations. Recently, a Swiss journal, Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica which has a JIF value of 0.655 in the year 2006 (...)

    Limited Awareness of the Essences of Certification or Compliance Markings on Medical Devices.Jong Yong Abdiel Foo & Xin Ji Alan Tan - 2017 - Science and Engineering Ethics 23 (3):653-661.
    Medical devices have been long used for odiagnostic, therapeutic or rehabilitation purposes. Currently, they can range from a low-cost portable device that is often used for personal health monitoring to high-end sophisticated equipment that can only be operated by trained professionals. Depending on the functional purposes, there are different certification or compliance markings on the device when it is sold. One common certification marking is the Conformité Européenne affixation but this has a range of certification mark numbering for a variety (...)
