Citation-boosting episode leads to editors’ resignations, university investigation

Artemi Cerdà On February 13, the European Geophysical Union (EGU) announced that an editor at two of its journals had resigned following an investigation by the EGU and its publishing arm, Copernicus, into citation-boosting. In response to that report, on February 23, Wageningen announced that it was investigating. In that period, her total number of citations went from 38 to 430. Our final report indeed puts this staff member in the clear. On February 27, also in response to the anonymous report, the EGU posted a 14-page document detailing its findings in the case. including citations not contributing to a manuscript’s scientific content, citations solely aiming at increasing an author’s or a journal’s citations) is regarded as scientific malpractice.” There is no indication that other editors would have violated relevant ethical rules, and there is no evidence that a group of editors would have formed a “cartel” to boost citations to their journals. Cerdà was also the editor who stepped down temporarily from the editorship of Land Degradation & Development. Yesterday (March 2), Eric Brevik, the executive editor of one of the two EGU journals, SOIL, announced he was resigning. Therefore, I have submitted my resignation.

We have found no indications of citation stacking by these individuals, or the existence of a “citation cartel”. In the…

The Pioneering Feminist, Freethinker and Abolitionist History Forgot (And then Found)

By Bonnie S. Anderson In the 1850s, Ernestine Rose was one of the most famous women in America - far better known than her co-workers Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. An outstanding orator in an era when women seldom spoke publicly, Rose had "As great a power to chain an audience as any of our best male speakers," a New York newspaper declared. Best-known for being a "Woman's rights woman," as feminists were then called, Rose was equally passionate about the abolition of slavery. During Rose's time in the United States, there were only 150,000 Jews out of a population of 31.5 million in 1860 and most Americans never would have met a Jewish person. First, Lucy Stone, a co-worker in women's rights, wrote Susan B. Anthony criticizing Rose for looking Jewish, being avaricious and concerned only with herself. Rose's closest friend in the movement, paid no attention and soon afterwards backed Rose's becoming President of the 1854 National Woman's Rights Convention. Despite her atheism, Jewish groups continued to champion her - the first biography of Rose, written in the 1950s, was sponsored by Jewish Women's Clubs. In 1871, the Boston Investigator predicted that Ernestine Rose would be appreciated "In about a hundred years," a prediction which came true in large part because of the revived women's movement of the 1970s. Thanks to the contributions of historians of women over the last fifty years, figures like Ernestine Rose are now part of the American narrative…
