In this paper, we review the ethical issues involved with
scientific publication. The possible mal-practices are discussed.
Deterrents to those mal-practices are often difficult to apply
considering the scale and scope of every issue. On the other hand, as a
researcher, one can get a strong moral standpoint with an understanding
of moral philosophies. In this paper we link a particular moral
philosophy, namely, the Consequentialist philosophy to the scientific
practices. From the perspective of Consequentialism, the issues of
scientific mal-practice and their deterrents are discussed. We further
discuss possible large-scale countermeasures via alternative publication
systems and show its relation to Consequentialism.
