Abstract

Academic bullying and harassment are all too common, and institutional reactions are often inadequate. Although reports often focus on what the targetsof bullying can do to protect themselves, it is important to acknowledge that all members of the scientific community can and must address academic bullying. If witnesses to harassment, members of investigative committees, journal editors, other gatekeepers, and individuals at every level of the scientific community all leverage their knowledge and power to combat bullying, we can create a safer and more civil scientific environment.

Keywords: academic bullying; stakeholders; bystanders
