Submission + - Human stem cell cloning paper contains reused images.

An anonymous reader writes: A very recent paper in the prestigious biology journal Cell — "Human Embryonic Stem Cells Derived by Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer" (openly accessible) — reports the novel creation of human embryonic stem cells from somatic nuclei. It has received massive media coverage and is surely pencilled in as a strong candidate for scientific publication of the year. It does however have several examples of image reuse that have been pointed out by a submission on PubPeer. In the paper, it is recorded that the journal Cell accepted this paper just 4 days after submission. Perhaps, under the circumstances, the pre-publication peer review had to be a little hasty? At least at Pubpeer, while conducting post publication review, we can take as long as necessary to make up for that lost time. (Hat tip and kudos to Peer 1).
