But alongside those more predictable trends one term stuck out: a little-known database run by the Research Council for Complementary Medicine in London called CISCOM or the Centralised Information Service for Complementary Medicine Until 2013 the scholars note the term “CISCOM” appeared in only two to three papers per year In February the database began cropping up once a week Looking more closely Filion and Carey found a group of 32 papers on varying topics that nonetheless shared some curious characteristics All were meta-analysis or review papers that analyzed already-published data in CISCOM along with more commonly used databases like Google Scholar PubMed and Web of Science Moreover all originated in China from 28 different research groups spread out across several cities Filion who described what he calls the “disturbingly similar” papers in a blog post published on 4 October set out with Carey to determine what was going on They downloaded complete versions of the 25 papers to which they had access through various institutional subscriptions or other means (All but two papers are behind a pay wall) Running the papers through the plagiarism detection program iThenticate turned up no red flags But the discussion sections of all the papers contain similar statements with only minor changes For example one paper reads “Importantly the inclusion criteria of cases and controls were not well defined in all included studies and thus might have influenced our results” Another states “Importantly the inclusion criteria of cases and controls were not well defined in all included studies which might also have influenced our results” Four of the papers include the same grammatical error—the extraneous “had” in “our results had lacked sufficient statistical power” But in mapping out the relationships among the papers the duo noticed that the writers seemed to be drawing from multiple templates That suggests Filion says “that the writers actively shuffle the texts”—a method of evading plagiarism detection software known as text laundering Most of the papers were submitted in late 2013 making it impossible that some authors plagiarized others after publication Filion and Carey thus hypothesized that the papers might all be the work of a single company With help from Yao Yu a geneticist at Fudan University in Shanghai the scholars identified an outfit whose website advertises tailored meta-analysis papers and contacted the company to inquire about its services The company reportedly offers meta-analysis papers for journals with an impact factor of 2 or 3 for about $10000 A 5-month investigation published in Science last year found dozens of similar companies offering an array of services aimed at securing publication in journals indexed in Thomson Reuters’ Science Citation Index Thomson Reuters’ Social Sciences Citation Index or Elsevier’s Engineering Index—which at many Chinese institutions are critical to securing promotions In addition to preparing original papers from scratch with data provided by their clients China’s paper-selling companies fabricate data arrange to add scientists’ names to already accepted papers and sell finished manuscripts Among the most popular options for finished manuscripts are meta-analyses perhaps because they require no original data One legitimate analysis published in PLOS ONE in June 2013 found that from 2003 to 2011 meta-analysis papers from China rose more than 16 times faster than did such papers from the United States Combing PubMed for other trends might turn up more evidence of malfeasance But Filion says he and Carey now plan to turn their attention to other topics: “We are not witch-hunters we are big data analysts”By: PTI | Washington | Published: November 19 2017 3:08 pm NASA scientists have compiled a captivating video that maps how the Earth’s surface has changed over a span of 20 years using data from various satellites (Image Source: NASA) Related News NASA scientists have compiled a captivating video that maps how the Earth’s surface has changed over a span of 20 years using data from various satellites In the Northern Hemisphere ecosystems wake up in the spring and sprout new leaves while a fleet of Earth-observing satellites track the spread of the newly green vegetation Meanwhile in the oceans microscopic plants drift through the sunlit surface waters and bloom into billions of carbon dioxide-absorbing organisms and light-detecting instruments on satellites map the swirls of their colour Satellites measured land and ocean life from space as early as the 1970s However it was not until the launch of the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) in 1997 that the space agency began what is now a continuous global view of both land and ocean life A new animation captures the entirety of this 20-year record made possible by multiple satellites compressing a decades-long view of life on Earth into a captivating few minutes “These are incredibly evocative visualisations of our living planet” said Gene Carl Feldman from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Centre in the US “That’s the Earth that is it breathing every single day changing with the seasons responding to the Sun to the changing winds ocean currents and temperatures” said Feldman Since the fall of 1997 NASA satellites have continuously and globally observed all plant life at the surface of the land and ocean Twenty years of satellite data has helped scientists track phytoplankton populations in the ocean study changing vegetation in the Arctic reaches of North America monitor crop yields and more The space-based view of life allows scientists to monitor crop forest and fisheries health around the globe However scientists have also discovered long-term changes across continents and ocean basins As NASA begins its third decade of global ocean and land measurements these discoveries point to important questions about how ecosystems will respond to a changing climate and broad-scale changes in human interaction with the land Satellites have measured the Arctic getting greener as shrubs expand their range and thrive in warmer temperatures Observations from space help determine agricultural production globally and are used in famine early warning detection As ocean waters warm satellites have detected a shift in phytoplankton populations across the planet’s five great ocean basins the expansion of “biological deserts” where little life thrives As concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere continue to rise and warm the climate NASA’s global understanding of plant life will play a critical role in monitoring carbon as it moves through the Earth system For all the latest Technology News download
