Two University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) professors who last year sent tremors through the research world with findings that some academic journals engage in editorial coercion now have a new grant to expand their research. College of Business Administration faculty members Dr. Allen Wilhite, chairman and professor of economics, and Dr. Eric Fong, associate professor of management, received a $212,000 first-year grant from the Office of Research Integrity of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services for their proposal, "Measuring the Extent of and Reactions to the Practices of Honorary Authorship and Coercive Citation in Academic Publishing and Grant Writing." The grant comes with a result-contingent $40,000 second-year extension. The new research will encompass all areas of their past work and look at a wider academic field, as well as into the grant writing process. One question the researchers have is have the practices of the past 10-15 years become so accepted that they are now endemic to the process?
