We think the authorities should step up their efforts to

 improve the governance of ethics in scientific research in light of the loopholes exposed in He’s case,” Zhai told China Daily.

Results of further investigations in the case should be made public, including the penalties given to all involved, she said.

One reason for publishing the article on Nature was to show the resolve of the gover

nment and ethics scholars in China to improve ethical compliance in the sciences, Zhai said.

In the commentary, the four scholars said the government should release clearer rules and regulations on the use of techn

ologies and hand down sharper punishments to offenders, including disqualifying them from scientific research.

“Self-regulation of scientists is unlikely to be enough, given their potential conflicts of i

nterest under market pressures. Thus, top-down regulation is crucial,” they said.
