The “ranking aura” has caused some educational institutions to defy, turning genuine scientific activities into a trading market with “contracts” to commercialize science. Social outrage during the past time has made education administrators very concerned, reflecting because the essence of education, including higher education, is self-respect. Copying theses, dissertations, scientific works, textbooks, teaching materials, etc. has become a scientific problem in an environment where scientific integrity should be put first. This can be considered as an “intellectual market”, an environment for buying and selling knowledge.
Through Newspaper information Youth Recently published, many people must be startled to know that there are people, units, and organizations who are willing to pay large amounts of money for any scientific article to polish their name, rather than make their face. Scientific research of their educational institution is ranked “top”, stratified. Regardless of whether it is any research field, even if it is not related to the research field of the educational institution and is not helpful for the development of the capacity of lecturers and learners; does not bring prestige and image to the country but on the contrary causes financial loss and honor of the nation. Especially in the eyes of doubt and distrust of international friends, at least in the regional education community about Vietnamese academics…
In fact, over the years, the Vietnamese university brand has been increasingly affirmed with the proud achievements of young lecturers, scientists, and students who have made excellent academic achievements. The Vietnamese university brand is also crystallized from the quintessential contributions of intellectuals with honorable and precious international publications. These achievements are the face of Vietnam’s higher education participating in the regional and world “arena”.
“Intellectual Market” is why?
Without buyers there would be no sellers. That is the identity of the “market”. Those who sell their words cheaply or expensively without caring about what their scientific products are published for and whether they are used for the right purposes, leading to a situation where there is no culture of rejection when being accepted. ordered”, “purchased” by an individual, or by a “trader” collected for sale to an educational institution. Therefore, to solve the problem of erasing this “market”, it is necessary to have more constraints of competent authorities to assess the scientific capacity of educational institutions. The evaluation and stratification of institutions participating in higher education is mainly “counting” but not “checking”? And after the article is published, is there a “post-check”?
The story of the international article must also face the balance of truth and falsehood, is that a problem that makes the author’s belief in international publication increasingly face the doubts of readers? Doubt is at the core of the scientific spirit, but being skeptical of scientific products is a “no-go zone” that any scientist should avoid. In order for this problem to be solved, Vietnam’s openly filtering quality of international journals is an issue that needs to be discussed in depth. And as long as we consider this as an urgent issue, the ethical problem in doing science, distinguishing between real and false, will be transparent.
