ALL HAVE BEGUN ADDRESSING “THORNY ISSUES” IN SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL PUBLISHING, SPECIFICALLY PLAGIARISM, CONFLICT OF INTEREST, AND
Conflict and misbehavior among Editors, Authors, Reviewers, and others is becoming more common.
One eTBlast study (a text similarity engine):
9,000 Medline duplicate articles
Selected 200 for analysis, questionnaires sent to original authors and subsequent authors
Led to 83 journal investigations and 46 retractions (many journal Editors refused to pursue the issue)
Amazingly though, of the 60 authors who replied to the questionnaires: “28% denied any wrongdoing; 35% admitted to having borrowed previously published material; and 22% were from co-authors claiming no involvement in the writing of the manuscript. An additional 17% said they were unaware their names appeared on the article in question.”
