    with Ying Zhang
    Science and Engineering Ethics 24 (5): 1409-1420. 2018.
    This study investigated the status quo of article retractions by Chinese researchers. The bibliometric information of 834 retractions from the Web of Science SCI-expanded database were downloaded and analysed. The results showed that the number of retractions increased in the past two decades, and misconduct such as plagiarism, fraud, and faked peer review explained approximately three quarters of the retractions. Meanwhile, a large proportion of the retractions seemed typical of deliberate frau…Read more

This situation has had an adverse effect on health. This paper used a questionnaire survey to investigate the influence of social netwo…Read more

    Spatial-Temporal Variation of Population Aging: A Case Study of China’s Liaoning Province
    with Dunyi Guan and Zenglin Han
    Complexity 2020 1-13. 2020.
    With the rapid increase of the aging population in China, research on the aging phenomenon has become critical. Studying population aging from a spatial perspective is of vital practical significance. Based on China’s census data from 1990 to 2010, this study establishes the indicator system of aging level and chooses the entropy method, standard deviational ellipse, and spatial autocorrelation as main methods. Taking Liaoning province of China as an example, the study measures the aging level o…Read more
