    There is a rapid global growth of scientific publications. The world growth rate of scientific publications from 1980–1994 to 1995–2009, indicates that the Iranian growth rate is the fastest in the world and it is followed by the Republic of Korea, Turkey, Cyprus, China and Oman [Science-Metrix 2010]. On the other hand there are frequent reports of academic misconduct in various scholarly activities in some of these countries [e.g., Butler 2009; Hvistendahl 2013]. The objective of this letter is to quantitatively scrutinize publication misconduct among a number of countries and compare the countries’ ranking on scientific publication misconduct.
