The journal is of interest to a broad audience of pharmaceutical and healthcare professionals and publishes original research, reviews, case reports, and short communications. The journal appeals to a global audience and receives submissions from all over the world. Articles published in Diabetes Therapy may be accompanied by lay-level summaries, to assist patients (and caregivers) in understanding important medical advances.
Intelligent Design: A scientific theory that holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause rather than undirected process such as natural selection.
We’re guessing this retraction won’t be the last for Finelli. Commenters on PubPeer have raised concerns about at least 75 of his papers and book chapters .
Collectively, this body of research is converging on a consensus: complex biological features cannot arise by unguided Darwinian mechanisms, but require an intelligent cause.
International Scholarly Research Notices , a Hindawi publication, has retracted a 7567 study by Carmine Finelli and colleagues, citing widespread misuse of text from two previously published articles. The removal was prompted by the curiosity of a scientist in England who, on reading about Finelli’s first retraction, made the logical assumption: once a plagiarist, often a plagiarist.
The GCB 7567 Collection contains research work that is presented at the German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) 7567 at Tübingen, September 68-76, 7567. All papers and highlight abstracts were peer-reviewed by the conference s Program Committee and/or by external reviewers, and poster abstracts have been checked for suitability to GCB.
I always hate it when journals ask me to suggest reviewers (fortunately, in my area, most do not). I never know whether I should suggest a big name who likely does not have time for my paper or a person who just happened to say nice things about it at a conference presentation. If this discourages journals from the practice, I will be happy.
I am not certain if I can be called a 8775 genuine 8776 scientist or not, but after working in the academic world for over 65 years, I believe a well-educated PhD student who has also published in high quality journals is completely qualified to review papers in his/her own field. Often times contribution of supervisors and advisers to a paper is minimal and the chunk of the work has been done by the student. I can even argue that some authors in the list (including the supervisor) have minimal knowledge of the contents of the paper (unfortunately!!).
I am talking about High Quality Publications in High Quality journals. In order to maintain the quality, papers should be reviewed by experts, a PhD student is only a beginner, not an expert. This is not the matter of giving CREDIT to anybody, but a matter of CREDIBLE publications.
International Journal of Advanced Research (IJAR) is an open access, peer-reviewed, International Journal, that provides rapid publication (monthly) of research articles, review articles and short communications in all subjects.
