Background and Objective: In recent years by using advantages of web technologies and growing of academic journals, academic world is faced with new misconducts. Many researchers and scientists in all over the world tried to cover these misconducts and prevent them, but day by day we can see new academic misconducts. In this paper, we tried to introduce new academic misconducts entitled “paper crating”.

Materials and Methods: Based on the paper type, this paper used library studies and authors’ experience.

Results: some papers and previous studies discussed about data manipulating, but it seems that some issues such as plagiarism, ghostwriting, copycat writing and predatory journals are not familiar for most authors. So in this paper we wanted to increase awareness of authors about the mentioned issues to prevent possible misconducts. We defined each misconduct and presented an example for each to increase awareness of authors.

Conclusion: This paper increases awareness of researchers and help them to be more ethical than previous.
