Rampant Plagiarism in Two Journals | The Scientist Magazine® via @hervelc
An investigation by The Scientist reveals blatant misuse of open-access articles.
Two journals appear to be involved in plagiarizing scientific articles that have been published elsewhere. In one case, a publisher called Science Reuters—which puts out the journalPharmacologia—listed papers from PLOS journals and elsewhere in the table of contents of numerous issues of its Science Reuters journal. Another publisher, Insight Knowledge, also published parts of papers in Insight Biomedical Science that appeared in PLOS ONE and the African Journal of Biochemistry Research. Researchers whose papers were in Science Reuters’s table of contents say they had no idea their work was being used by the journal.
