View at publisher


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 in general. 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.

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.
