Hi respected seniors and experts, I recently submitted a paper on the Caputo-Fabrizio operator but the paper was rejected with the comment "The Caputo-Fabrizio is not a fractional operator". But thousands of papers have already been published on the mentioned-above operator, does that mean all those articles are wrong???
Relevant answer
Answer
Because this derivative is nonlocal, it cannot be considered as a fractional operator. In fact, there are many papers that state this fact. See and for more information.

Currently, I am looking for free-to-publish journals with an impact factor of more than 4 or 5 in food science and nutrition. It would be very helpful if anyone could suggest some good journals with free or low-cost publication processes. Thanks, anyone in advance if you provide any information or guidance.
Relevant answer
Answer
I would aim for subscription-based journals (or hybrid journals where you decline the open access option), these journals are in most cases free of costs. Some examples are:
-Journal of Food Science and Technology (JFST) (https://www.springer.com/journal/13197 ). Impact factor 3.117
-Journal of Food Science (https://ift.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/17503841 ). Impact factor 3.693
-Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10970010 ). Impact factor 4.125
-Food Bioscience (https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/food-bioscience ). Impact factor 5.318
-Food Chemistry (https://www.journals.elsevier.com/food-chemistry ). Impact factor 9.231
If you consider journals without the impact factor >4-5 ‘requirement’ you might check the list of open access journals free of costs:

Dear All;
If we look closely to scientific works, interviews and speeches of Stephen Hawking, we may see many points unacceptable to norms of science. I myself have identified questionable statements by him that may need to be clarified. I share you several examples:
1- As far as I have seen and read his books, I did not find any referencing styles, bibliography...
2- Strange Statements, for example about Black Holes, rejecting other sciences such as Philosophy,
3- Changing his views constantly, with no reference, talking about Big Crunch, then reject it, talking about Big Bang and then reject it.
4- Advertising "The theory of everything" and then giving it up silently...
5- Did not talk about opposite ideas by others, eg, those who don't accept Big Bang...
6- Changing his ideas about our fate constantly, for example saying we have 1000 years time to leave earth, 600 years, 200 years, 100 years...
7- The reasons he talks about for leaving the earth (such as possible nuclear wars, Viruses, climate change, ... ) could be easily challenged, as humans (if ever according to him ) leave the Earth, wont take with themselves their behavior, culture, tools, systems, policies, attitudes, understanding ideology, beliefs, systems, doctrines? just to name a few.
8- Alien invasion
9- other issues... we talk about later
Please share your ideas on points mentioned above, or other points you know
Thank you

A discussion about science popularization and the responsibility of scientists in this is a very general and brought one, and, although it is of great interest, I do not have the time to take part in this. Perhaps others may contribute. Concerning the discussion of Susskind and Hawkins, this was a scientific one, and, as Leonard Susskind wrote, he "deeply respected" Hawkins. Therefore this is another question and is not connected to Hawking's popular books.

Relevant answer
Answer
The problem is that very often the authorship is determined without much difficulty (or at least the scientific school to which the author belongs). So "blind" peer review doesn't fully work. There are features in the text (citations, or for example, style) that indicate the author of the publication. Moreover, an experienced reviewer can easily distinguish an article by a "great" scientist from a student's work. Another thing is when the signature of a famous person is put on the work of a beginner (unfortunately, this has become a common practice). The general belief is that a work becomes much more "passable" if a well-known scientist is among the authors (in my opinion, this is name trading, akin to piracy "in the basement" with the subsequent sticker with a brandname). Sometimes journales are created simply to serve own needs - and they can publish yourself as well as "friends", and "trade" the possibility of publication (not always for money, there are other potential advantages). In principle, the decisive word could have been given the consumers - the scientific community, but publishers have consistently excluded its influence - with the advent and expansion of APS and open-access, the consumer does not affect the profitability of the journal in any way. Everything is paid by the author. If somebody have money, print whatever you want.

Hello all,
Is it okay to publish article based on previous same methodology used by another researcher? I wanted to use that method but on different machine and with different experimental data?
I meant, I have used the same methodology, but I have developed my own simulation model and even new code for our purpose. Only thing is that I am using the same software as that researcher used in his article with the same steps. However, our machine is different than him and sample used in experimental campaign are different (Of course, our simulation model is different). What do you think ? is it okay to publish article in Journal?
Because i am afraid that he is expert on that article and if he selected as reviewers then he will reject my paper. Please let me know your opinions.

Answer
Dear Prof. Amit Das,
Preprints are defined as an author’s version of a research manuscript prior to formal peer review at a journal, which is deposited on a public server. ResearchGate (RG) said about "Preprints": "early-stage research" and "Draft paper before peer review".
On the other side, RG is not a publisher and, in turn, uploaded unpublished text is not regarded as a publication. Hence, a preprint is an author's own original or draft version of their paper before any peer review has taken place and before it is published. As soon as it's posted, a preprint becomes a permanent part of the scientific record and, in turn, it can be citable with its own unique DOI.
Now, before answering this valuable question of Prof. Aijaz Panhwar, please let me give my own opinion about the preprint dilemma (مُعضلة ما قبل الطباعة):
I have a different perspective on uploading any preprint anywhere before it has been published. Why do you let others know about your insights and methodologies before publication? You should avoid telling the other researchers about the details of any one of your papers until it has been published and seeing your name by yourself. You may say that I am somewhat old-fashioned, but I have a different perspective on uploading any preprint anywhere before it has been published by your name. My advice is not to put your research anywhere until it is published. It is a security issue:
  • Your manuscript may be copied and then published by others before you can do that. This stealing of your paper might be happening. So, you must wait until the paper is accepted and then published in that journal. Then, upload that research item on any platform you wish.
  • You should avoid telling the other researchers about the details of any one of your papers until it has been published and you are seeing your name by yourself.
  • A journal may have automated plagiarism software to check the paper before admitting it to the reviewing process. There are chances that your paper can get a rejection at any point. Thus, to avoid this problem. Publish the preprint after you got the paper as "ACCEPTED".
  • There may be a "cold war" between the professors of a given department. They do not like to discuss ideas as others will "steal" them and publish an article on them without giving credit to the one from whom they got the idea. My suggestion is to keep your work "private" and share it only with those who are really interested.
  • Academic publishing remains a competitive process. If someone else has recently published a paper very similar to mine, mine is less likely to be accepted. So although I may share my topic, I prefer to keep my methodology, findings, and discussion private, until published in a peer-reviewed journal. So, there is a high chance that someone may claim your idea as theirs!
  • Preprint gives a false feeling of security. Personally, I would always wait until the paper is accepted by the editor of a journal. After that, I can post it as a regular research item on any platform you wish.
  • A reminder for all respected researchers: Don't put any research, including preprint, anywhere until you are certain that it is published and tagged with your name. The information presented in the preprint is potentially available to be stolen and republished. There is also a chance that someone may plagiarize your paper!
Finally, for the coming future, do not upload any paper anywhere until it is published with your name. Even if it is a "preprint"! For the time being, If you had done something like that as a "preprint", for instance, I advise you to delete the preprint from any elsewhere and wait for two months before sending the paper to any journal.

Question

As Editorial member of peer reviewed journals, I have been alerted to a new malpractice in the area of scientific publications. Currently, an increasing number of journals have been targeted by some organisations that aim to manipulate the peer review process, known as paper mills. What’s a paper mill? A paper mill is an organisation that offers services to individuals that include: - Writing a manuscript on their behalf and submitting to a journal of their choice; - Writing a manuscript which the paper mill submits to a journal, which when accepted, they sell the authorship of (with varying fees depending on the order of the author); - Writing an article which an individual will pay to add superfluous references to, in order to boost their citation score; - Installing reviewers into a journal site, who commit reviewer fraud. Paper mills operate globally, and there are academics from across the world involved. Papers can be perfectly acceptable research papers, or they may be research papers where the research was never conducted, or they do not make sense to the reader. There are procedures to prevent paper mill activities; however, it is our responsibility, as member of the research community, to engage in ethical behavior, and to promote fairness and rigor in research and dissemination activities.

Relevant answer
Answer
Dear respected colleagues,
Related to this valuable discussion thread of Prof. Ashok Silwal, please let me point to another critical issue related to plagiarism software-detectors.
My friend was accused of plagiarism. Why?
After about five months, his promotion process to associate professor was rejected because of plagiarism. When he checked the promotion report, he found that one of his papers was accused of plagiarism and with a 100% percentage. The reason is that his manuscript was checked by his co-author using one of these checkers. It took him several months time of following up to solve the problem and removing the manuscript from their database. After that long period, he re-applies the promotion order for the second time.
Therefore, plagiarism software may retain a copy of the manuscript in its database. To state the truth, this is depending upon the settings and type of account subscription.
So, you may face a similar situation when you submit your manuscript after plagiarism checking to a journal. It may be rejected instantly because it would show up 100% similarity index.
To solve the problem, it may take several months time of following up and removing the manuscript from their database.
If there were accusations of plagiarism, it is not well for your reputation, in any meaning.

Dear researchers. If we want to publish a paper in a hybrid-type journal and choose the non-open access option (for subscribers only), is it literally free, or is there still a possibility of paying a less charge than APC in their open access option? How can we identify it?
Relevant answer
Answer
Thanks for the interesting paper with examples in astronomy. Indeed, the examples mentioned are exactly the exceptions I meant. Journals that are effectively open access after an embargo period. These journals use so to speak an open access model ‘avant la lettre’. See for example: https://iopscience.iop.org/journal/1538-3873 you can scroll to the issues of the past year and only the open access papers are freely accessible. However, if you open August 2021 issue all papers are freely accessible (effectively ‘open access’).
So Muhammad Habiburrahman , if you think about a journal, you do not really know and find it is a subscription based journal you can check for example Google Scholar and see if 1-2 year old papers are freely accessible (which is normally not the case for subscription based published papers) then most likely the journal charge an APC. See for example JBC, PNAS and the examples mentioned by Wolfgang R. Dick . They can charge an APC and the logic is that only for a few years the subscription fee/license will cover the costs and the loss of revenue by making the papers freely accessible needs to be covered by an (lower) APC. But ‘normally’ (and unfortunately) papers in subscription-based journals remain behind a paywall (basically forever…) and then the logic is no APC since costs are covered by subscription fee/license.
Best regards.

Hello, again, Shuraik Kader (it has been a long time since you heard from me)
I agree with Rob Keller that this length of time is very long. And, unfortunately, it is longer in some journals than others. That variation depends on the journal (how long it takes for the editor and the staff - what they are like) and depends a bit on your article (if it is a topic that it is very hard to find reviewers for). My advice is to be patient - we authors always want the results faster… If you are bored with waiting I suggest you can start work on your next project/paper…!

Recently, I found an article that has been published in IEEE Access (DOI: 10.1109/ACCESS.2020.3045008), which is directly copied from a research article of ours (DOI: 10.1007/s00170-019-04213-z).

Moreover, most of the data are the same or have been only slightly changed and the text in the finding and discussion section is also mostly identical. We can see the same text with the same references (see the attached file).
Regarding this essential problem we sent an email to the editor handling of the paper. Then, the first author of the paper sent us an email, in which he tried to persuade us to forgive him. In fact, he confessed to committed plagiarism and asked us for mercy. Following reporting the problem to the EIC we received an email from IEEE Access as an investigation outcome as follow. "In the present case, we performed an investigation and discussed the case with the EIC, IEEE Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and myself. We believe that the article overlap is small enough that it does not warrant any further investigation."

The Dolos list has started to work well, but I do not think this opposition to predatory publishing is enough.

Dear Colleagues,
We have created https://www.wos-journal.info to allow you to check information about 21,430 journals on the Web of Science (released on June 29, 2022). Note that these journals are in the Web of Science core (in SCIE, SSCI, AHCI, and ESCI). Some helpful information that you may want to know:
- Impact factor and quartile (latest, updated at the same time with the release of the Web of Science): only for SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI journals. ESCI journals have no Impact factor and Quartile.
- Journal Categories
- Countries and Regions
- Other information
Some features of the site:
+ Searching journals by title, issn, eissn (https://wos-journal.info/);
+ Filtering journals by category (https://wos-journal.info/filter);
+ Viewing detailed information about a journal, and many other features will be added in the near future.
Also, we provided a widget with journal information to put on your journal website.
All data of the journals were originally loaded from the Web of Science database. And all the data are totally free.
If you find this site useful, please circulate it to your friends, your research networks, or any others.
Thank you!

The 2022 Journal Citation Report (JCR) is set to be released around the end of June (based on past experience).
For researchers and publishers, an increase in the journal impact factor is usually exciting. However, the impact factor of most journals (though not all) has shown a positive trend in recent years, while the journal ranking and quartile have remained nearly constant in most cases (again, not all) (or have minor change). Do you believe it has any bearing on the author's profile or research?

As far as I can see it is (in this case) because the journal where your paper is published in is not properly indexed in Google Scholar.
Furthermore (see print screen) your name is not properly indicated. Not sure when you uploaded your paper here on RG (use academia.edu as well to speed up the process) but sooner or later GS will pick your paper up.

I tried forming chitosan films using some methodologies I read from certain journals. I used 1% (v/v) acetic acid to form a 1% (w/v) chitosan solution which was stirred overnight and was filtered through a cheesecloth. After filtration, I sterilized the solution at 121 deg C for 15 mins, cooled and then added 0.50 mL/g glycerol as plasticizer. I poured the solution on open glass petri dishes and dried it at 40 deg C for more or less 4 hours. The films were too adhered on the glass plates that when I tried peeling them off immediately after drying, I only got a little film. Some wouldn't peel off. I tried scratching the surface of the plates just to make sure films were formed and that the chitosan solution didn't evaporate at all. Did I do something wrong? What methods can you suggest to improve my solution preparation and casting method? I am currently trying casting on disposable plastic plates with the same chitosan solution and hoping this time will be successful. Thank you so much!
Relevant answer
Answer
I am facing the exact same problem with peel off the Chitosan film and also had a doubt whether the Chitosan film is formed or not. I used different surface like: plastic petriplate, glass slide, aluminium foil and weighing boat.
Initially I did without the hot air oven and the result was I even couldn't determine whether film was formed or not. Just some oily like stain appeared on glass slide. I thought Chitosan gel got evaporated. Later while washing the glass slide with detergent and brush, I got to know that Film was actually formed when it came out with force from washing brush. But the Film was ruined completely.
Can anyone suggest better method for easily peeling off film from petriplate or glass slide without damaging the film. And what is the appropriate way to store it.

I am writing a review paper. In my paper, can I use figures from "open access" journals/articles etc provided I cite them properly? (i.e. without have to go for requesting permission for using). Also, is there any way to obtain permission to use already published figures without incurring cost?
Thank you in advance for your answer.
Relevant answer
Answer
There are lots of confusing answers above, some incorrect, some incomplete.
1. If a paper (or anything) is published under a Creative Commons license, ANYONE can freely use the material as long as the terms of the license are followed. For example CC-BY-NC-ND allows noncommercial use of the material without changes as long as the source and original authors are fully acknowledged.
CC-BY allows any use, including commercial, of the source material in original or modified form as long as the source and original authors are fully acknowledged and cited, and any modifications clearly explained.
You do not need any special permission for this:
2. If material (eg a figure) is copyright-protected, you need permission from the copyright holder (usually the publisher, not the authors). Permission is easy to get! To obtain this, you click the "Rights and permissions" link at the published article and the rest is self-explanatory. As long as it is a moderate amount of material, it does not cost anything.
Please note that in either of the two cases 1 or 2 above, you do not have to ask the authors' permission - unless this is required by the copyright holder (the publisher) in case 2.
3. If you modify a copyright-protected figure or redraw it from an original does not matter, copyright still applies and you still need permission.
4. In all cases you must of course fully reference the source and state that you have permission. The figure caption should read "From Ref. X. (c) Elsevier [for example], used with permission" or "From Ref. X, used under Creative Commons CC-BY license."

Guys,
Sometimes I see comments which are added in the end of a paper(e.g. I've seen comments and their replies from the author in the end of the paper in Elsevier's journals). The question is that how can we make such a comments to get answer from the author(s) formally?
I have several questions on a paper that should ask them to the authors. I've tried to have a conversation with the authors via E-Mail but nobody answered me then decided to ask my questions formally from the journal. May I use LTE (Letter to the editor) to do this? have you ever done such a thing so far?
Relevant answer
Answer
With regard to the original question asked by Rooholamin Dargahi , my experience is that some journal want you to write letters like another article and these appear in a section of the printed version of the journal (in the future). Some journals have a part of their website where they accept comments - and sometimes these are linked to the article itself - where you as a reader can write something about the published paper but your response is not published in the journal itself. Sometimes they (the journal) will say they select the "best" comments to be formally published. Some (people) say to me it is worth the risk (to try), some say it is not.

I, like probably all of you whose email address is out there on a mass mailing list, get daily requests to submit a paper to a journal. Before deleting them, I like to see if there is something to laugh at (in the nicest possible way). I am not implying there is anything wrong with the journals. All strength to them, but they should try a bit harder to target their potential customers. I have three recent examples:
1) We have read your worthy paper etc ....“Do mollusks use vertebrate sex steroids as reproductive hormones? Part I: Critical appraisal of the evidence for the presence, biosynthesis and uptake of steroids.” and would like to invite you to submit a paper to the Integrative Gynaecology and Obstetrics Journal [!!]
or
2) We had a glance at your published article “Out-of-season production of 17,20β-dihydroxypregn-4-en-3-one in the roach Rutilus rutilus”. Being impressed by your quality work, we are contacting you to know if you can associate with us by submitting your upcoming research to SOJ Materials Science and Engineering
or
3) We had a glance at your published article 'Out-of-season production of 17,20β-dihydroxypregn-4-en-3-one in the roach Rutilus rutilus.'
With the theme of ‘Serving Scientific Community for a better mankind’, International Journal of Poultry and Fisheries Sciences is publishing articles dealing with all aspects of etiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of liver diseases. Being impressed by your quality work, we are contacting you to know if you can associate with us by submitting your upcoming research.

Answer
After all those years I was curious to see if the ‘journals’ in your example still exist and what can be said about them:
-The first one “Integrative Gyn(a)ecology and Obstetrics Journal” is published by “Research Open” (https://researchopenworld.com/category/integrative-gynecology-and-obstetrics/) a publisher mentioned in the Beall’s list (https://beallslist.net/). This is a red flag but just by looking at their contact info it is clear that they hide their true location (so deceptive to say the least)
-The second one “SOJ Materials Science and Engineering” is published by “SYMBIOSIS (GROUP LLC)” (https://symbiosisonlinepublishing.com/materialsscience-engineering/) a publisher mentioned in the Beall’s list (https://beallslist.net/). Same here, just look at the contact info and it is clear that this has nothing to do with a ‘corporate’ office (so again they hide something)
-The third one “International Journal of Poultry and Fisheries Sciences” is published by the same publisher (https://symbiosisonlinepublishing.com/poultry-fisheries-science/). This one is discontinued (last issue is from 2018).
It is amazing (and sad) to see that most of them are still there.
Best regards.
PS. Muhammad Shahzaib just search for predatory here on RG and you will get a good impression on how to do spot these fraudsters. As indicated by Omar Hernando Avila-Poveda (Avila-Poveda OH) checking whether the journal has some serious indexing (Scopus etc.) is one approach, checking the Beall’s list is another one. By the way, the examples mentioned by the 'deleted profile' contains numerous examples of so-called hijacked journals (a phenomenon, if possible, even worse than predatory). Just search for hijacked here on RG.

My advice is that some fields even the best journals do not have such a high impact factor. Yes, if it is possible then definitely try for that but if not possible, I am safe knowing that other serious researchers in my field (including potential employers) will know what are the so-called good journals in my field and will recognise that. Journals are also labelled as Q1 - top 25% or Q2 - 25-50% and so on. That, again, I expect will be good for me, even if the journals I publish in do not have a very high IF.

Editors may claim that due to increased flows of papers and given that there is limited space in their journals, they may reject papers that they would have probably processed in the past. I understand that “space“ was an issue in the past at times of printed volumes. Why is this still an issue in today’s digital world?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Prokopis Christou this is certainly an important technical question which is of broad general interest to many other RG members as well. I fully agree with you in tha "not enough journal space" is not a good argument for rejection any more in today's digital world. I think that "no space" in reality means that the rejected manuscript is out of the journal's scope or that it lacks novelty (i.e. the work is routine and not interesting enough for the readership of the journal). In our field of research (chemistry), many renowned journals which still appear in printed form have largely expanded their journal space in recent years. Journals which used to have one issue per month now have two issues in just one week. Others, like the high-IF journal JACS (= Journal of the American Chemical Society) publish well over 20,000 printed pages per year!

You don't need to look for any journals.
All you need to do is narrow your search to topics listed in "special issues" and "call for papers". Top publishers e.g. elsevier, wiley, T&F, Emerald, etc., often advertise call for papers and special issues of journals. The topics in the special issue or call for paper can give you some hint on current and future research trends. I think this is the standard practice in academia.

In your opinion, Why big name journals (high impact) develop companion or sister journals?
Relevant answer

I have noticed this situation developing as well and think that the reasons are:
1. excess number of articles
Often, it seems, they want to keep those articles but it might be slightly below the level they want to put in their "top" journal
2. excess number of editors
This is a good problem to have because it is hard to fill these positions sometimes
3. The field is growing so much and it is not possible to put all the articles in for all the subsections so they turn each of those subsections into a whole journal by itself
This situation reminds me of television shows which are really successful so they develop a "spin off" show from that which is not really directly related. All of these points (1-3, TV shows) all comes back to (or is unified by) one point for me - they see the opportunity to make more money!!
