International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals: Sample References The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors offers guidance to authors in its publication Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals (ICMJE Recommendations), which was formerly the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts. The recommended style for references is based on the National Information Standards Organization NISO Z39.29-2005 (R2010) Bibliographic References as adapted by the National Library of Medicine for its databases. Details are in Citing Medicine.

A Peer-Reviewed Open-Access Journal A Peer-Reviewed, Open Access Journal Previous Issues PLOS Medicine is a peer-reviewed, international, open-access journal publishing important original research and analysis relevant to human health. human disease database MalaCards is an integrated searchable database of human maladies and their annotations, modeled on the architecture and richness of the popular GeneCards database of human genes. MalaCards leverages GeneCards and GeneDecks and their associated genes. Each "card" contains a variety of detailed sections.

Why Most Published Research Findings Are False Summary There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false. The probability that a research claim is true may depend on study power and bias, the number of other studies on the same question, and, importantly, the ratio of true to no relationships among the relationships probed in each scientific field. In this framework, a research finding is less likely to be true when the studies conducted in a field are smaller; when effect sizes are smaller; when there is a greater number and lesser preselection of tested relationships; where there is greater flexibility in designs, definitions, outcomes, and analytical modes; when there is greater financial and other interest and prejudice; and when more teams are involved in a scientific field in chase of statistical significance. Simulations show that for most study designs and settings, it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true.

Falsification, Fabrication, and Plagiarism: The Unholy Trinity of Scientific Writing Article Outline One of the greatest, and sadly all too common, challenges facing a contemporary medical journal editor is the adjudication of ethical integrity issues. I had originally presumed that this would be just an occasional role, but it transpires that these problems are quite widespread, ranging from unconscious and unwitting naiveté to the conscious and willful betrayal of scientific trust. Map: explore the human disease network. Dataset, interactive map and printable poster of gene-disease relationships. Curious about the Diseasome map? Here are some answers to the most common questions asked: I.

Elsevier published 6 fake journals The Atrophy Of Objectivity\n\nIf I were to rate the corruptive tactics performed by big pharmaceutical companies during my intimate experience with them , the frequent and intentional strategy of implementing fabricated and unreliable results of clinical trials performed by others possibly tops the list. \n\nA list of corruptive tactics by the pharmaceutical industry that sponsors such trials. By this atrophy of the scientific method absent of authenticity that has been known to occur, harm and damage is possibly done to the health of the public. \n\nMost would agree that the science of research should be sound and as aseptic as possible- completely free of deliberate and reckless interference. \n\nHowever, it appears, money and increased profits can be a catalyst for disregard for human health with the clinical trial process that is largely unregulated.

Conflicts of interest at Food and Chemical Toxicology and Elsevier The journal that published Seralini's paper and its publisher are enmeshed in conflicts of interest with industry. Information has been trickling in that sheds more light on the corporate influence on Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT), the journal that retracted the Seralini study on GM maize and Roundup; its editor, A. Wallace Hayes; the former Monsanto scientist Richard E. Goodman, appointed as FCT's editor for biotech papers; and FCT's publisher, Elsevier. The following update is from Claire Robinson. Elsevier published fake journals Retraction wars: is science broken? – Jill Neimark On 5 August 2014, a celebrated Japanese scientist was found dead, hanging by his neck at his workplace, his shoes politely removed and placed on the landing of the stairs. Yoshiki Sasai, 52, was a legendary stem-cell expert, widely regarded as an exceptional scientist, who worked at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe. Seven months before he killed himself, Sasai and colleagues in Japan and Boston announced a stupefying research breakthrough in two papers in Nature. They claimed that ordinary mouse blood cells could be transformed into powerful stem cells – the holy grail of regenerative medicine – by simply bathing them in a mildly acidic solution (called STAP, for stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency).
