Global inequity - question that arise with publications

Day 1, Lab 6. "Publication Ethics" workshop
It's a well-known fact that publication involves making information public, through written, audio or online mediums. The benefits include giving open access to publications, the disadvantages which arise are copyright constraints and dubious appearance. As publication has diverse social and ethical dimensions, finitely many transgressions could occur, including careless reviews of previous work, publishing articles more than once without acknowledgement, plagiarism, conflict of interests, fabrication or falsifications. So it's important to think about how to raise awareness for intellectual honesty.
Sister Mary Gloria Njoku said that "The major challenge for us is to deal with "global inequity"".
