China Urges Academicians to Observe Laws, Ethics

Sep 08, 2016     Email"> PrintText Size

The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has revised its constitution with regards to academicians, one of its top honors, adding new rules on the revoking of the academician title.

According to the constitution, "any academician who seriously violates professional and social ethics shall be urged to give up his title; those who harm the national interest and break the law shall have their title revoked."

The CAS academician title is a top national honor in science and technology.

CAS introduced its current academician system in 1994 and has made efforts to improve the system in recent years.

Last year, CAS made it clear that civil servants and Communist Party of China officials were barred from entering academician elections, in a bid to reduce foul play. (Xinhua)
