Where does quality in research begin?
The main premise put forth in this paper is that most problems related to research quality in fact come from within the profession. As a result, the research profession must accept total responsibility for research which is less than top quality. The research profession must also accept the challenge of "cleaning its own house" before economic pressures manifest themselves in an even further deterioration in the image and status of the profession and thus in the perceived quality of its work.
