The Journal of the Medical Library Association is pleased to announce the
publication of v.102(2), April 2014. The issue contains the following
article that we believe might be relevant and of interest to members of the
SIGMETRICS listserv:
 The ethics of scholarly publishing: exploring differences in plagiarism
and duplicate publication across nations
Kathleen A. Amos
"This exploratory study adds to the literature on retractions by including
non-English-language papers, differentiating plagiarism from duplicate
publication, and estimating country-based rates of retraction for
plagiarism and duplicate publication in addition to numbers of retractions
issued for these reasons. Although similar, plagiarism and duplicate
publication may be perceived differently in terms of level of severity, and
retraction numbers and rates provide different perspectives on the extent
of plagiarism and duplicate publication in countries. No country is unique
in having to address issues of plagiarism and duplicate publication,
although such unethical behaviors may be a more pressing concern for some
countries than others."

We invite you to visit us online to read this and other quality,
peer-reviewed articles. JMLA preprints are available to MLA members at, and current and archived issues are freely available to all
