Dibyendu Talukdar,listed at the University of Calcutta in West Bengal,India,is the sole author on three retracted papers.He shares five new bepaly体育赌博retractions with Tulika Talukdar listed at the University of North Bengal.That brings their totals to nine and six,respectively.(We're not sure if the Drs. Talukdar are related).
When two surgeons in Greece learned that a patient had developed a rare side effect following weight loss surgery,they were eager to publish the case.
After extensive testing,the patient was diagnosed with Wernicke's encephalopathy—a neurological disorder caused by thiamine deficiency—following a sleeve gastrectomy procedure.As the authors note in the paper,they had seen only eight other cases following the procedure in the literature.
It turns out,theirs was not the ninth.After the patient unfortunately died,he was examined by a coroner,who ruled he did not,in fact,have Wernicke's encephalopathy. So Dimitrios Manatakis and Nikolaos Georgopoulos,both based at Athens Naval and Veterans Hospital in Greece,have retracted their 2014 case study.
Two papers evaluating glucose meters — used by diabetics to monitor blood sugar levels — suggested that a couple of the devices don't work as well as they should. Perhaps unsurprisingly,the companies that sell those meters objected to how the studies were conducted.By all accounts,the companies appear to be justified in their complaints.
In both cases,researchers used blood drawn from veins to test the meters.But manufacturers of the WaveSense JAZZ and GlucoRx glucose meters said their devices are designed to work with fresh blood from a finger-prick.Both papers have now been retracted.
Thebepaly体育赌博retraction noticefor "Technical and clinical accuracy of five blood glucose meters: clinical impact assessment using error grid analysis and insulin sliding scales," published in 2015 in thebepaly投注Journal of Clinical Pathology,hints at the issue:
With bepaly体育赌博retraction noticescontinuing to pour in,we like to occasionally take the opportunity to cover several at a time to keep up.
We've compiled a handful of bepaly体育赌博retractions that were all issued to papers that were published twice by at least one of the same authors — known asduplication.(Sometimes,this can be thepublisher's fault,although that doesn't appear to be the case in any of the following examples.)
A bepaly投注journal has retracted a case report after discoveringit had already been reported.
The paper — about an "extremely rare" instance where a fetus was diagnosed with bothaform of dwarfismand a chromosomal condition known asKlinefelter syndrome— was retracted fromCase Reports in Obstetrics and Gynecology(CROG).
The first author of the paper told us the report was the result of a "big misunderstanding" between her and a former colleague,and she alerted the bepaly投注journal as soon as she noticed the case had already been reported inBMC Pediatrics.
A pair of researchers affiliated with the University of Galati in Romania were suspended after duplicating work in their papers on materials used to build ships,earning them four bepaly体育赌博retractions last year,and one the year before.
These aren't the only problems Chirica has faced: In 2013,he resigned from his position as the director of the Doctoral School of Engineering,according toImpact Est,for reasons that are unclear.In 2012,he also lost two additional papers on which he is the sole author.
When a computer scientist approached a bepaly投注journal about editing a special issue,little did the bepaly投注journal know he — or she — was using a stolen identity.
Before the jig was up,someone posing as a researcher named Xavier Delorme had edited three articles on optimization problems forThe Scientific World bepaly投注Journal.The scammer used a fake email address,the publisher told bepaly手机注册网址bepaly体育赌博Retraction Watch — acommon strategy for duping bepaly投注journalsin peer review scams. When thereal Delorme,who works at École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne in France,began receiving correspondence about articles he had no involvement in,fake Delorme's cover was blown.
Upon closer look,the publisher found evidence that peer reviews for some articles may have been submitted using phony identities,as well. The publisher has been unable to identify anyone responsible for the scam.
The investigation found that authorJason Jung,a computer engineer at Yeungnam University in Korea,"was involved in submitting the fraudulent review reports" for four of the retracted papers,according to the publisher's CEO.In the case of the other six,the authors didn't appear to be involved.
Hindawi Publishing Corporation,which publishes over 400 bepaly投注journals,doesn't ask authors for potential review suggestions — making a common route to fake peer review more difficult.In July,when Hindawi announced it was investigating the papers,itposted a statementsaying that they suspected the editors had created fake reviewer accounts.
The bepaly体育赌博retraction note on Jung's papers — identical except for the title at the beginning — explains that each paper has
