Submission + - Alleging 'Malpractice' With Climate Skeptic Papers, Publisher Kills Journal->

sciencehabit writes: A European publisher today terminated a journal edited by climate change skeptics. The journal, Pattern Recognition in Physics, was started less than a year ago. Problems cropped up soon afterward. In July, Jeffrey Beall, a librarian at the University of Colorado, Denver, noted “serious concerns” with Pattern Recognition in Physics. As he wrote on his blog about open-access publishing, Beall found self-plagiarism in the first paper published by the journal. “In addition," says another critic, "the editors selected the referees on a nepotistic basis, which we regard as malpractice in scientific publishing.”
