IEEE and Elsevier withdraw more than 120 gibberish papers



IEEE and Elsevier  withdraw more than 120 gibberish papers

Conference proceedings removed from subscription databases after scientist reveals that they were computer-generated.


by Richard Van Noorden (Read: http://www.nature.com/news/publishers-withdraw-more-than-120-gibberish-papers-1.14763

The publishers Springer and IEEE are removing more than 120 papers from their subscription services after a French researcher discovered that the works were computer-generated nonsense.


Over the past two years, computer scientist Cyril Labbé of Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France, has catalogued computer-generated papers that made it into more than 30 published conference proceedings between 2008 and 2013. Sixteen appeared in publications by Springer, which is headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany, and more than 100 were published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), based in New York. Both publishers, which were privately informed by Labbé, say that they are now removing the papers.



Among the works were, for example, a paper published as a proceeding from the 2013 International Conference on Quality, Reliability, Risk, Maintenance, and Safety Engineering, held in Chengdu, China. (The conference website says that all manuscripts are “reviewed for merits and contents”.) The authors of the paper, entitled ‘TIC: a methodology for the construction of e-commerce’, write in the abstract that they “concentrate our efforts on disproving that spreadsheets can be made knowledge-based, empathic, and compact”. (Nature News has attempted to contact the conference organizers and named authors of the paper but received no reply*; however at least some of the names belong to real people. The IEEE has now removed the paper).


*Update: One of the named authors replied to Nature News on 25 February. He said that he first learned of the article when conference organizers notified his university in December 2013; and that he does not know why he was a listed co-author on the paper. "The matter is being looked into by the related investigators," he said.


How to create a nonsense paper

Labbé developed a way to automatically detect manuscripts composed by a piece of software called SCIgen, which randomly combines strings of words to produce fake computer-science papers. SCIgen was invented in 2005 by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge to prove that conferences would accept meaningless papers — and, as they put it, “to maximize amusement” (see ‘Computer conference welcomes gobbledegook paper’). A related program generates random physics manuscript titles on the satirical website arXiv vs. snarXiv. SCIgen is free to download and use, and it is unclear how many people have done so, or for what purposes. SCIgen’s output has occasionally popped up at conferences, when researchers have submitted nonsense papers and then revealed the trick.


Labbé does not know why the papers were submitted — or even if the authors were aware of them. Most of the conferences took place in China, and most of the fake papers have authors with Chinese affiliations. Labbé has emailed editors and authors named in many of the papers and related conferences but received scant replies; one editor said that he did not work as a program chair at a particular conference, even though he was named as doing so, and another author claimed his paper was submitted on purpose to test out a conference, but did not respond on follow-up. Nature has not heard anything from a few enquiries.

“I wasn’t aware of the scale of the problem, but I knew it definitely happens. We do get occasional e-mails from good citizens letting us know where SCIgen papers show up,” says Jeremy Stribling, who co-wrote SCIgen when he was at MIT and now works at VMware, a software company in Palo Alto, California.


“The papers are quite easy to spot,” says Labbé, who has built awebsite where users can test whether papers have been created using SCIgen. His detection technique, described in a study1published in Scientometrics in 2012, involves searching for characteristic vocabulary generated by SCIgen. Shortly before that paper was published, Labbé informed the IEEE of 85 fake papers he had found. Monika Stickel, director of corporate communications at IEEE, says that the publisher “took immediate action to remove the papers” and “refined our processes to prevent papers not meeting our standards from being published in the future”. In December 2013, Labbé informed the IEEE of another batch of apparent SCIgen articles he had found. Last week, those were also taken down, but the web pages for the removed articles give no explanation for their absence.


Ruth Francis, UK head of communications at Springer, says that the company has contacted editors, and is trying to contact authors, about the issues surrounding the articles that are coming down. The relevant conference proceedings were peer reviewed, she confirms — making it more mystifying that the papers were accepted.


The IEEE would not say, however, whether it had contacted the authors or editors of the suspected SCIgen papers, or whether submissions for the relevant conferences were supposed to be peer reviewed. “We continue to follow strict governance guidelines for evaluating IEEE conferences and publications,” Stickel said.


A long history of fakes

Labbé is no stranger to fake studies. In April 2010, he used SCIgen to generate 102 fake papers by a fictional author called Ike Antkare [see pdf]. Labbé showed how easy it was to add these fake papers to the Google Scholar database, boosting Ike Antkare’s h-index, a measure of published output, to 94 — at the time, making Antkare the world's 21st most highly cited scientist. Last year, researchers at the University of Granada, Spain, added to Labbé’s work, boosting their own citation scores in Google Scholar by uploading six fake papers with long lists to their own previous work2.


Labbé says that the latest discovery is merely one symptom of a “spamming war started at the heart of science” in which researchers feel pressured to rush out papers to publish as much as possible.


There is a long history of journalists and researchers getting spoof papers accepted in conferences or by journals to reveal weaknesses in academic quality controls — from a fake paper published by physicist Alan Sokal of New York University in the journal Social Text in 1996, to a sting operation by US reporter John Bohannon published in Science in 2013, in which he got more than 150 open-access journals to accept a deliberately flawed study for publication.


Labbé emphasizes that the nonsense computer science papers all appeared in subscription offerings. In his view, there is little evidence that open-access publishers — which charge fees to publish manuscripts — necessarily have less stringent peer review than subscription publishers.


Labbé adds that the nonsense papers were easy to detect using his tools, much like the plagiarism checkers that many publishers already employ. But because he could not automatically download all papers from the subscription databases, he cannot be sure that he has spotted every SCIgen-generated paper.

Journal retracts paper due to image mismatch; one co-author alleges fraud

Journal retracts paper due to image mismatch; one co-author alleges fraudSee: http://retractionwatch.com/2017/01/24/journal-retracts-paper-due-image-mismatch-one-co-author-alleges-fraud/#more-47840
Researchers have retracted a biology paper that included an image mismatch — despite the fact that, as they claim, another image in the same paper confirms the original findings.
The authors say they plan to resubmit the paper with the corrected figure panel.
The second to last author — Carlo Croce, chair of the department of cancer biology and genetics at The Ohio State University — told us he believes there’s more to the retraction than what the notice says. Specifically, he said that the paper includes an image from a previous paper by the same authors, which he called “fraud.”
Here’s the latest retraction notice, published in Cell Death and Differentiation:

The Editors have agreed to retract the above article in Cell Death and Differentiation (2010) 17, 1908–1916, due to the use of a mismatched image in control lanes of Figure 2c However, the authors wish to note that the results reported in Figure 2c have been reported and confirmed in Figure 2f of the same manuscript. The authors are convinced of the reproducibility of the data presented, which will be resubmitted for publication using the correct panel for Figure 2c. The authors apologize to the scientific community for any inconveniences caused.
The 2010 paper, “c-FLIPL enhances anti-apoptotic Akt functions by modulation of Gsk3β activity,” has been cited 14 times.
The paper has been discussed on PubPeer, with one user suggesting the figure panel in question — 2c —resembles another figure panel in a 2008 paper by some of the same authors.
That’s the main problem with the paper, Croce told us:
After the senior author informed the other authors including me of the problem, I looked at the paper in [Cell Death & Differentiation] and the previous paper in Plos One. There is no doubt that a piece of a figure of the Plos One paper ended up in a figure of the CDD paper. I would call it fraud!!
The newly retracted paper and the 2008 PLOS ONE paper — “Akt Regulates Drug-Induced Cell Death through Bcl-w Downregulation” — share a same first author, Cristina Quintavalle, also listed at ‘Federico II’ University of Naples in Italy. According to her ResearchGate profile, she is now based at Universitätsspital Basel. We were unable to find contact information for Quintavalle.
We’ve contacted the last author on both papers, Gerolama Condorelli — also of ‘Federico II’ University of Naples in Italy — for more information.
This isn’t Croce’s first retraction we’ve covered — last year, he asked a Nature journal to retract a News & Views he wrote, claiming the publisher tried to censor him by asking to remove passages that criticized another journal. He’s also co-authored multiple papers with Alfredo Fusco, a cancer researcher in Italy who has nine retractions under his belt. Fusco is undergoing a criminal investigation for scientific misconduct.
Several papers by Croce and Fusco are being questioned on PubPeer.

Jeffrey Beall’s blog was shut down for unknown reasons

It has come to our attention that Jeffrey Beall’s blog (https://scholarlyoa.com/) was shut down for unknown reasons. It could be due to lawsuit of US government or simply someone might have hacked it. Whatever it is, his attempt and movement, in general, have been questioned by leading scholars around the world (see previous posts on this blog) and his personal views and opinion are not favored anymore.

"IEEE spam is no different than Viagra spam" and "It is ridiculous and makes me sign of from this ridiculous membership for which they make me pay over $200 a year"

In the blog
http://anti-ieee.blogspot.com/2016/03/ieee-spam-is-no-different-than-viagra.html
we have found this:


We have received in our blog two comments about IEEE Spam. Needless to say that we agree Report the spams to SpamCop.

Unfortunately, IEEE is not one person, but an organization full of IT individuals, some who show respect to ethical promotion of their activities, some who do not. IEEE as an organization should educate its members on the proper use of email as promotion. I report all spam I get from IEEE to SpamCop.net. IEEE spam is no different than Viagra spam.



I would have to spend entire day everyday just to browse and read all IEEE spam I am getting. It is ridiculous and makes me sign of from this ridiculous membership for which they make me pay over $200 a year.

More fake conferences by WASET

From the web page 
 
Notice: a fake ICGG

Dear Colleagues, 

We would like to draw your attention to an immense academic fraud that is going on. An organization called WASET www.waset.org pretends to organize an impressive number of scientific conferences. 
 
However, there is evidence these conferences are not really what they are supposed to be. 
 
Just as an example, they are pretending to organize the 13th International Conference on Gas Geochemistry, in Bangkok in 2015 https://www.waset.org/conference/2015/12/bangkok/ICGG . They also produced a Conference flyer by collating information from the website of the previous real ICGGs. The real 13th ICGG will actually be organized in Chengdu, China by Dr. Yunpeng Wang from Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015, as a follow-up of the 12th ICGG that was held in Patras, Greece. The website of ICGG 13 is http://conf13.ic-gg.org
 
Probably most of the conferences advertised on the WASET website are in the same situation. By browsing the internet, you can find many complaints of scientists that paid a registration fee to a WASET conference that never happened, and have lost their money. 
 
It is most likely that the Committee members that are listed on the WASET conferences websites are not aware of this. As an example, I was looking for a person named Zsuzsanna Libor from Cranfield University, included in the Conference Committee of the fake ICGG13. It seems this person has no interest in gas geochemistry, and it is not clear if she still is with Cranfield University. If you search on Google “zsuzsanna libor waset”, you will find at least 20 WASET “conferences” that are listing her as a Committee member.
 
The scientific community should be warned about this practice, in order to avoid any inconvenience related to this. 
 
                                                                       The International Scientific Committee of ICGG
                                                                       The local organization committee of ICGG 13

Fake Articles in WIKIPEDIA. When reading Wikipedia, always keep in mind that it is controlled by few people (who are they)

When reading Wikipedia, always keep in mind that it is controlled by few people (who are they???) who use a system of rules and regulation to serve their bias and interest and therefore do not to give you reliable information but act together to discredit people and ideas of their choosing. 

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_Wikipedia: "It has also been noted that, despite the perception of Wikipedia as a "shining example of Web democracy" "a small number of people are running the show."[64] Despite the need for some form of control in an open system, this "doesn't explain the kind of territorialismÑthe authorial domination by 1 percent of contributorsÑon the site's pages." ......... "Among the allegations of administrator abuse, one often finds claims that the administrators have become a clique whose goals or viewpoints set them apart from ordinary users. An article on The Register, dated 4 December 2007 and entitled "Secret mailing list rocks Wikipedia", alleged the use of a private mailing list to coordinate administrative actions.[68]"

Another blog had discovered some years ago 42 parallel absolutely fake/bogus IEEE Conferences

Today our blog discovered a cluster of 30 simultaneously and in parallel organized fake/bogus/scam IEEE Conferences http://fakeconferences.blogspot.com/2015/06/30-fakebogus-ieee-conferences-are.html

Another blog had discovered some years ago 42 parallel   absolutely fake/bogus IEEE Conferences
http://acapam.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-site-httpbogus-conferences.html

The moderators of this blog justified their opinion as follows
These 42 parallel IEEE conferences are fake and bogus
1. Because it is over-advertized by SPAM
2. Spam Emails are sent from various and strange non-academic addresses like gmail.com, yahoo.com
3. In their emails they start with the phrase: "Apologies for cross-posting of the email."
4. So far, the majority of conferences is on the web without committee
5. Some of these conference have committee but they do not have serious committees with serious researchers.
5. Thys conferences is composed by 42 Conferences on everything related directly or indirectly with computational intelligence. The bogus IEEE conferences are listed below
6. Explanations about the review process are absent.


Now, IEEE hosts 30 scam, sham, fake, bogus conferences (See more details here:http://fakeconferences.blogspot.com/2015/06/30-fakebogus-ieee-conferences-are.html
Why so many? Because of money. This the site http://ieee-ssci.org.za/
of the 30 Fake/Bogus IEEE Conferences. What an academic robberry! And of course, the logo of the conference is a Beach somewhere in S.Africa. What a Science in front of coco palms! IEEE coco palms. Will you index also these coco palms in your IEEE Xplore Bogus Library?? IEEE is a predatory and brigandish club of evil money hungry thugs.  The following ridiculous Advertisement from 30 fake and Bogus IEEE Conferences spammed everybody in our University. Why? We are not members of IEEE.

Why have you changed 4 times the deadline for paper submission? Haven't you reached your target of 2000 papers yet which is translated to 1.7 million dollars?And where are the list of Reviewers, Mr. IEEE? Is it real that IEEE has been accepted more than 100 fake/bogus machine generator papers and had published then in its E-library for more than 10 years until Cyril Labbe contacted you?

Hi,

My apologies for spamming you today. Herewith just a
correction to my email this morning.

The paper submission deadline extension to 14 July 2015
refers to the IEEE SSCI 2015, and not IEEE SSCI 2014.

The deadline is for 23:59 on 14 July, but the submission
will remain open for another 24 hours to account for any
time zone confusion.

Official website: http://ieee-ssci.org.za/

Best wishes

Fake and Bogus Paper published in an ISI Journal with very high impact factor: "SCIENCE" (Source: NEW YORK TIMES www.nytimes.com)

From:
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/29/science/journal-science-retracts-study-on-gay-canvassers-and-same-sex-marriage.html

Fake and Bogus Paper published in an ISI Journal with very high impact factor: "SCIENCE"
This journal (SCIENCE) retracted a highly publicized study reporting that attitudes toward same-sex marriage could be altered by brief face-to-face conversations with people who have a stake in the issue.
The study, published by the journal Science in December, came under question this month when a pair of graduate students trying to follow up on the work found evidence that the data had been misrepresented.
The study’s senior author, Donald P. Green, a prominent political scientist at Columbia University, asked that the study be retracted last week, after his co-author, Michael J. LaCour, a graduate student in political science at the University of California, Los Angeles, declined to furnish the raw data he had used to reach his conclusions.
Mr. LaCour did not agree to the retraction, the journal said. He could not be reached for comment.

ASME Bogus Conferences. If you do not believe it, read the following story regarding these fake activities of ASME

ASME Bogus Conferences: The absolutely fake conferences in academia and see why.

Introduction:
As you know our blog do not sell protection to big publishers.
We have revealed (with strong documents) the hunderds  of IEEE garbage-conferences
See: http://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/docs/00/71/35/55/PDF/0-FakeDetectionSci-Perso.pdf
and http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11192-012-0781-y
See also 1100 fake and bogus IEEE conferences have been indentified recently
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/author_form.html

ASME Fake Conferences
ASME Conferences are also fake. They operate as commercial exhibitions rather than scientific events.
Our blog have discovered and have reported many times that those big ASME conferences of 2000 or 2000 individuals do not offer any kind of review.
Now we have the Proof:

Fluid mechanics article retracted with no explanation. It was a Fake Paper from an ASME Conference in Fluid Mechanics.

Fluid mechanics article retracted with no explanation.
It was a Fake Paper from an ASME Conference in
Fluid Mechanics.



An article published earlier this year has been retracted from the  Journal of Heat Transfer.
But the retraction notice gives no information about what was amiss.
The article is entitled “Neural Network Methodology for Modeling Heat Transfer in Wake Flow,”
and the retraction notice, in full, reads:
The above referenced paper is being retracted from the Journal of Heat Transfer.
We are unable to find a copy of the article online, despite the fact that the Committee on Publication
Ethics (COPE) recommends leaving retracted articles available online.
We contacted the manager of journals for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME),
the journal’s publisher (who is listed as the author of the retraction), as well as the journal’s editor,
but have received no reply. We also reached out to the first and last authors,
located at university engineering departments in Turkey and Bahrain,
who we were able to identify in a listing on a Chinese library search engine.
We’ll circle back if anyone responds with more information.
The article has not been cited.
