Abstract
Research integrity is instrumental in academia and provides a solid foundation for innovation. University academic journals perform key functions in communicating and sharing knowledge, which is critical for fostering academic research integrity. In this work, the role of university academic journals in the construction of scientific research integrity is discussed. Firstly, the study provides an overview of the integrity problems, and then analyzes their causes in current scientific research. Accordingly, this work proposed four specific paths to strengthen the research integrity 1) developing a professional editorial team, 2) standardizing the editing and publishing process, 3) motivating university academic journals to actively participate in integrity crisis management, and 4) jointly establishing the scientific research integrity mechanism of university academic journals. Taken together, we believe this work describes an effective approach to purify the academic environment and shall promote the sustainable development of academic journals.
