At the risk of breaking the Fourth Wall, here’s a story about peer reviews that weren’t — and shouldn’t have been.
We are huge fans of the work done by Retraction Watch. We send them financial contributions periodically and we encourage members of the AHRECS community to consider doing the same. We are absolutely thrilled by this news and completely support the efforts to ensure the integrity of this body of work. We have included links to six related items.
These manuscripts, however, had nothing whatsoever to do with retractions. In case you need evidence, here it is:
- “COVID-19 during pregnancy: Challenges, management and mitigation strategies,” submitted to the Journal of Infection and Public Health
- “ZnO-based surface photocatalyst disinfectant of COVID-19: A sustainable, efficient and economic technique in higher-risk areas and crowded-spaces,” submitted to Environmental Challenges
- “COVID-19: socio-economic impacts and challenges in the working group,” submitted to Heliyon
- “Nonlinear Combinational Dynamic Transmission Rate Model and Its Application in Global COVID-19 Epidemic Prediction and Analysis,” submitted to Results in Physics
