Big Surprise “Peer Review Ring”

Filed under: Uncategorized — sunshinehours1 @ 9:25 AM
Tags: ,

I’m sure it is in fact no surprise that a “peer review ring” was operating at an academic journal.

“Every now and then a scholarly journal retracts an article because of errors or outright fraud. In academic circles, and sometimes beyond, each retraction is a big deal.

Now comes word of a journal retracting 60 articles at once.

The reason for the mass retraction is mind-blowing: A “peer review and citation ring” was apparently rigging the review process to get articles published.”

Arctic Sea Ice Extent has actually climbed 130,000 sq km over the last few days. Extent is now inside the one standard deviation mark again (by about 1000 sq km).

DMI’s temperature has been oscillating up and down but is sort of approaching normal.
