Abstract
In recent years, frequent incidents of technological fraud have seriously affected the domestic research atmosphere and the image of China in the international arena. The current misconduct in scientific research is largely attributed to utilitarianism of scientific researchers. The temptation of the national incentive mechanism, the change of social judgment standards, the lagging behind supervision and the weakening governance for scientific misconduct, and the distortion of personal values all further intensify the utilitarian tendency of scientific researchers. The key to effectively preventing scientific misconduct is to balance the reward mechanism with the punishment mechanism, change the social conduct and the concept of self-realization, establish the concept of honest scientific research, improve the scientific evaluation system, strengthen the supervision of scientific research behavior, and reduce the misconduct of scientific research caused by utilitarian thinking.
