Dear Prof. Yves Gingras,
I liked the paper. The gospel of St. Mathews is indeed useful.
I note that you have chosen the definition of duplicate papers given by
Lariviere and Gingras.
I will read it again more carefully as it also points at a caveat in the
peer - review process and has ethical dimensions.
Any idea as to "Why" do researchers publish duplicate papers in low -
impact factor journals as well within a span of an year or two ?
Also, how are duplicate paper pairs in [English, Non-English Language]
journals factored ? [This is the rephrased question that I have asked
in my earlier mail].
