Why has Springer Verlag published so many fake and bogus papers? One More Proof in our blog: Springer Verlag journal on hold for “pattern of inappropriate and compromised peer review”
Springer has put a cell biology journal on hold, “effective immediately,” after finding a “pattern of inappropriate and compromised peer review.”
An internal review of the journal Cell Biochemistry and Biophysics has revealed a pattern of inappropriate and compromised peer review. As a result, the scientific integrity of the journal cannot be guaranteed. As a first measure, in addition to launching a thorough investigation, we have placed the journal on hold effective immediately. We will be providing further information on springer.com as events warrant.
I honestly have no idea.
I have enough information to know what we’re doing and how we’re doing it.
I’m deadly afraid of the fact that having closed down my journal we may be losing a lot of primo people [who will submit to other publications].
