Hervé Maisonneuve a fait état le 6 janvier dernier sur son blogue Rédaction médicale et scientifique d’un dossier éthique en deux parties et publié par Editors’ Update (Elsevier) :
- Partie I (Special part 1)
- A Guest Editorial by our SVP and General Counsel for the legal department, Mark Seeley. He reflects on the rise in publishing ethics cases and talks frankly about his own thoughts on how they should be addressed.
- In Understanding and addressing research misconduct we hear from an Elsevier lawyer and a publisher about what constitutes research misconduct and the roles editors and publishers have to play once a case has been identified.
- Two editors from the journal Biochemical Pharmacology explore research bias – and its implications – in Bias in research: the rule rather than the exception? (Grosse discussion dans les commentaires)
- We also hear from the editor community in Research misconduct – three editors share their stories. Our interview subjects discuss the ethics challenges in their fields and how they are working to combat them. (Article le plus lu)
- It’s not only authors who can find themselves crossing ethical boundaries and in The ethics pitfalls that editors face we examine two of the most common editor pitfalls – undisclosed conflicts of interest and citation manipulation.
- Lessons learnt at the 3rd World Conference on Research Integrity highlights the key points one of Elsevier’s publishing ethics experts took home with her from this year’s World Conference on Research Integrity. (Montréal, 5-8 mai 2013)
- We complete the edition with Editor in the Spotlight – Professor Margaret Rees. As Editor-in-Chief of Maturitas and current Secretary of COPE (the Committee on Publication Ethics), she draws on her extensive ethics experience to answer our questions.
- Partie II (Special part II)
- Working together: a précis of roles and resources, a scene-setter for the articles that follow. Find out more about the roles Elsevier and editors have to play and the range of support available to help you.
- The art of detecting data and image manipulation in which we investigate a range of tools and processes. The article contains useful advice (and an offer of free software) from The Office of Research Integrity as well as an editor’s practical tips for checking Western Blots.
- All Elsevier journals are enrolled in the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and in Making the most of your COPE membership, current Chair, Dr Virginia Barbour, explains recent changes to the organization and outlines some of the benefits membership can bring.
- For many journals, CrossCheck is now indispensable. In How CrossCheck can combat the perils of plagiarism we discover why they wouldn’t be without this software and how integration into EES will further streamline the process for checking papers for plagiarism, simultaneous submission and multiple publication.
- Selon Maisonneuve, la détection du plagiat qui a représenté 42 % des problèmes éthiques chez Elsevier en 2012 (20 % pour duplications, 12 % pour fraude, 10 % pour paternité des articles, 8 % pour conflits d’intérêts) avec surtout le contenu de iThenticate, logiciel anti-plagiat : « Compares full-text manuscripts against a database of 38+ million articles from 175,000+ journals, books from 500+ publishers, and 20+ billion webpages » ; sur iThenticate, le 2 janvier 2014, on lit même 43 milliards de pages web !
- Talking to the media – who is responsible? asks Tom Reller, Elsevier’s Head of Media Relations. Media exposure for your journal may be welcome when the coverage is positive, but what about when they want to discuss publishing ethics cases? Reller outlines some scenarios and advises on whether Elsevier or the editor should respond.
- If we want to reduce research misconduct incidents, education is key and in The importance of author education we look at two of Elsevier’s early-career training initiatives – the Ethics in Research & Publication Program and Publishing Connect author workshops.
- Finally, no edition would be complete without our Editor in the Spotlight feature. This time, Dr Robert Strangeway, Research Geophysicist at University of California, Los Angeles, and joint Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics takes on our regular Q&A.
