Introduction to fraud, corruption and ethics
Boyd, J.M. & Edwards, S. D. (1998) Introduction to fraud, corruption and ethics. [Working Paper]
White-collar crime, fraud, corruption and the stewardship of private and public sector
organisations have, rarely had a higher profile. Fraud, corruption or indeed any dishonest act
reflects adversely on the agency and often on the integrity of the corporate or public sector
The damage to confidence, reputation and image that fraudulent activity can inflict often far
exceeds the significance or value of the act itself and when it is exposed in a public sector
organisation, be it government agency or local authority, it is often taken by the media and
the public as evidence of general weakness or inefficiency. This is probably even more so
with non-profit community organisations.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
