I did not want to authenticate my plant sample so Will this cause problems for me to publish papers in the future?
Manily, i have worked with one plant but now the problem is the tree is no longer available in the place where I collected it.I collected some scientific paper from internet and those paper said that my plant is present in my coutry.
Is it enough or plant authentication must be required?
Relevant answer
Answer
Plant authentication is very important for any research. in order to have findings that will help both the current and future crop of scientists, the plant in question, should be authenticated/validated. There are so many methods for plant authentication, though the most common and reliable method is DNA analysis. Especially if there are any doubts, DNA analysis is very handy in such cases.

After AD Scientific index, I see many posts on social networks where researchers and universities are flaunting their ranking as per Stanford classification at:
I do not believe that the classification is sponsored by Stanford University in any way, but the person who calculates the classification (J. Ioannidis) works at Stanford University and has published the results of his calculations for the classification in a scientific journal annually for the past three years. The abstract on the ranking site never refers to Stanford University. The list contains the top 2% (195605) cited researchers.
Like the AD Scientific index, I believe it is a good effort and informative but not something reliable where a lot of scrutinizing is needed to authenticate it. So, I will take it with a grain of salt!
Relevant answer

Good Rahim to spread the knowledge and have a saying!
While AD Scientific Index is as good as Google’s Scholars records go, this claimed Stanford classification is also as good as Scopus’s ..

1) I need Analytical grade, commercially available Iron Oxide (Fe3O4), TiO2 and Au nanoparticles? Any authentic suggestion or specific links from where I can purchase them?
2) I also need root, grain and leave cell lines for rice and wheat. Again, any authentic suggestion or specific link where I can find them?

Relevant answer
Answer
From the question, I guess the reason you need Fe3O4, TiO2, Au nanoparticles are to study the toxicity on rice and wheat. Nano particles soemtimes become toxic. If my guess is correct, rutile TiO2 has, for example, anatase TiO2 as impurity, and vice versa. The size distribution is also important. Fe3O4 is similar. Such information is not included "analytical grade".

I am looking into developing a chemical profile of Spinach, Kale, Pumpkins and Beetroot (and similar vegetables) which could be further used in authentication of purees of these vegetables. The analytical question would be - how do I distinguish that a spinach puree is made of 100% spinach, and not of 30-50% another (cheaper/more available) leafy plant?
Given that a profile of semi-finished goods (juices/puree) of fruits are well studied, and we have several authenticity models - what parameters could be included in the authenticity analyses of such vegetable products?

Answer
Reliability is a property of the data you collect, rather than the source of the data -- although the nature of the source can affect how reliable the data is.
The reliability of data of data often thought of in either of two ways. The first is test-retest reliability, so that measuring the same variable twice produce similar results each time. The second is the degree of random error, because rand om error can correlate with anything, so the more random error a measurement contains, the less reliable it is.

I will be very thankful if you could help me in identifying the authenticity of the journal.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Kunal . ,
As indicated by Shivendra Singh , the publisher “E-Cronicon” behind the journal is mentioned in the Beall’s list of predatory publishers (https://beallslist.net/). This is a red flag. Others are:
-The mentioned PubMed index is misleading since they falsely suggest that the journal is PubMed indexed (while they are not). They misuse the fact that PubMed automatically indexed those papers where at least one of the authors receive a NIH grant (this is irrespective of the journal)
-No physical address (at least I was unable to find it)
-Papers look misleadingly professional but for example the papers I checked have a fake DOI
So, better avoid this one.
Best regards.

The text which I have attached here and which I propose as a possible basis for a discussion on the problem of the Evil has been published in the Revue Roumaine de Philosophie 63(1), pp.19-35, in June 2019. All observations on the problem of Evil are welcome - apart from insults -. In my analysis I deal with some causes and origins of evil and of moral degeneration in the human dimension. My analysis focuses on Plato's Republic. The origins and causes of the presence of injustice and of vice lie in the very structure of the human soul. The division of the soul into parts which are at least reciprocally independent of each other implies that there is the possibility that they are in conflict with each other. This is the origin of injustice and the root of every form of evil. The correct equilibrium among the parts of the soul, which, in my opinion, are to be interpreted as authentic potencies, can be achieved only by developing the rational part. This development requires a thorough education in philosophy. Throughout my analysis I quote passages in which Plato points out the presence of bad instincts and, in general, of a morally difficult component in our soul. The kind of soul considered in my analysis is the embodied soul.

Man is out of nature, but nature is not out of man. K.Lorenz pointed to this existential problem: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_Aggression
The unnaturalness of human nature ( https://setemheb.tumblr.com/post/140345594808/the-unnaturalness-of-human-nature. ) requires rational and ethical systems of morality to guide man away from evil, i.e. destructive and self-destructive force, with respect to a creative life of sharing and caring.
The ethical rectification of man is the way to check her/his destructive potential.
However, F.Dostoievski opined: No morality without immortality, which points to the vital role of an eternal upper force as universal accounting system.

Introducing the language functions in the ESL classroom will indeed equip learners with the essential skills to fulfil their academic demands. Still, they are often incapable of expressing deep emotions in everyday life using the target language because the language used in ELT coursebooks is refined, and the contexts they present is often ideal. Besides, the language used is often mechanical and devoid of stance. In contrast, the language used in literary works is genuine, and it exposes people’s lives without any mask. Therefore, exploiting literacy pieces in the English classroom will allow students to engage in meaningful interaction with the authentic materials to deconstruct the text, re-construct language and use it in real-life situations.
Relevant answer
Answer
I agree with Mr Hassan, and I would like to add that literature work is considered a language resource for English and most languages. Poems, even legends believe to be a linguistic resource. So, any SL teacher or student needs to return to the literature to enrich his linguistic backgrounds, such as vocabulary and grammar. It is the perfect writing, reading, or even daily conversation model.

I would like to know that the journals that show their indexing in ISI (International Scientific Indexing) better or not ? Kindly give information about it.
Relevant answer
Answer
Although the reply of Wolfgang R. Dick indicates the problem with the mentioned ISI (International Scientific Indexing) I will repeat more or less the reply I gave before. One needs to be very careful in this matter. It is indeed quite common to talk about ISI indexed journals. However when one talks about this be aware that:
International Scientific Indexing (ISI) is a bogus impact factor:
It is misleadingly referring to the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) that use to provide indexing of major international journals and often referred to as ISI impact factor. It is nowadays the well-known Science Citation Index (SCIE) that is provided by Clarivate. To make things even more complicated…Clarivate reinstated the name ISI “ISI is the ‘university’ of Web of Science Group at Clarivate Analytics”. So the impact factor linked to Web of Science was originally produced by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) and used to be the Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters (currently maintained by Clarivate Analytics).
The same is true for Scientific Indexing Services (SIS) and Global Impact Factor (GIF) both fake and virtually meaningless metrics. By the way another notorious one is Citefactor, that refers to the well-established CiteScore as developed by Scopus. All are mentioned as fake metrics: https://beallslist.net/misleading-metrics/
For more info about the only genuine impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF):
And a little bit more about fake impact factors:
Jalalian, M. (2015). The story of fake impact factor companies and how we detected them. Electronic physician, 7(2), 1069.
Gutierrez, F. R., Beall, J., & Forero, D. A. (2015). Spurious alternative impact factors: The scale of the problem from an academic perspective. Bioessays, 37(5), 474-476.

Should self acclaimed experts - only in tune with protracted self accumulated knowledge within their field and usually crossed with new ideas - be at the forefront and trusted in validating a scientific contribution? Would there ever be an age where AI will solely validate the authenticity of a manuscript encapsulating a scientific finding?

Unlike natural sciences, mathematics require a deep expertise in relatively complex specialized problems. It's not easy for every editorial board to have access to a magnitude of expert like that.

Dear Honorable Researchers,
From my point of view, I don't recommend you to use any free software checkers of plagiarism.
I haven't used them before because I am afraid that the original content of my manuscript may be copied and sold to others before I can publish it.
I know that the problem is not easy for us, especially that we haven't enough money to buy enough food and, in turn, to buy such software. Unfortunately, you have to pay for the sake of getting good results. So, I always write using my own words.
In any way, it is not well for your reputation if there were accusations of plagiarism. This is because plagiarism is a sin! If it is, severe action may be taken and/or legal notice may be given.

Is there any simple way of knowing journal is authentic or not i.e any site where putting name of journal and result comes regarding its authenticity?
Relevant answer
Answer
Unfortunately, it is not always simple. One step is rather simple: if you encounter an (at least to you) unknown journal (or publisher) check the Beall’s list.
The journal “European Journal of Clinical Medicine” (https://www.ej-clinicmed.org/index.php/clinicmed) is published by “EUROPA Publishing” (also called European Open Science Publishing), a publisher mentioned in the updated version list of predatory publishers: https://beallslist.net/#updateThis is a red flag that you might be dealing with a predatory publisher (and consequently journal) but not enough. However, there are more red flags:
-The contact info of this ‘publisher’ is vague and the physical address looks fake
-For an ‘European’ journal the APC is suspiciously low (39 euro)
-The logo shows a misleadingly resemblance to the well-reputed PubMed one
-Editorial board looks suspiciously short and lacks too much detail
-Looking at the publisher (https://europapub.org/ ) they started more than 20 journals which is way too much
I would say better to avoid this one.
Best regards.
PS. When it comes to the Beall's list: If the journal has no publisher 'behind' it you check the stand-alone journal list otherwise you check the publisher list on this site

Can anyone provide a justification or an authentic journal where they have applied ARDl bounds cointegration approach on standardised variables.
Or can anyone justify whether we can apply ARDL bounds cointegration approach on standardised variables (0 mean and standard deviation 1) or not?
Relevant answer
Answer
What I mean is I've standardised my variables by using stand = (average,stand_dev,x) formula... They have mixed order of integration and then after diagnostic test I've run ARDL bounds cointegration approach using the values of my standardised variables...I've been told that I should not use ARDL technique on my standardised variables as it's not appropriate... and that's what I want to know.
And if I can apply ARDL on standardised variables then is there any research paper from a renowned journal claiming it correct.

In attached file, authors have used eq-2 and eq-3 to calculate dislocation density and strain. The formulas look strange and no references are given by the authors.
Are these authentic formulas?
Relevant answer
Answer
Muhammad Mansoor The dislocation density is a measure of the number of dislocations in a unit volume of a crystalline material i.e. the length of dislocation lines per unit volume of the crystal (m/m3) Edge dislocation Screw dislocation Dislocations distort a crystal lattice, causing elastic stress around the dislocation line, & hence strain energy. For ultimate strength, dislocations are to be eliminated.
In this video, I have discussed the nature of dislocation density and how to calculate the dislocation density from XRD using origin. In the case you want to further ask about it, please do comment on the specific video, I'll respond to it shortly. I have provided the practice as well as calculations files here. Thanks

My position is trying to go beyond the idea of dealing with COVID19 as an opportunity but as a paradigm shift that will change every aspect of life and particularly the way houses, neighborhoods and cities are planned and designed. We need to move to an authentic people-based urbanity and architecture. How do you see this from your perspective and your context?
Relevant answer
Answer
The SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic could have a significant impact on urban planning and / or design if the pandemic was to continue for an extended period of time. If mankind does not solve the pandemic problem in 2021, then anti-pandemic safety issues will be taken into account in the planning and / or urban design of urban agglomerations, i.e. additional and improved air ventilation systems, anti-pandemic design of workplaces in office buildings, buildings of offices and public institutions, etc. However If, thanks to efficient vaccination programs in 2021, the problem of the pandemic is resolved, then the inclusion of anti-pandemic safety systems and instruments in planning and / or urban design of urban agglomerations will not be implemented to a large extent.

When I googled, it is a research Institution in Karnataka with quite a number of PhD holders as board members. They are giving away research awards every year since 2015 or something.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Mithun,
The InSc award is fake and does not bear any value at all if you mention it in your CV. Rather, mentioning the award in your CV can play against you. The InSc society itself is a scam and their objective is to collect money from scholars in an unethical way. Let me discuss in detail and share my experience:
1. At first InSc will find you based upon your CV and then encourage all the PhDs, postdoc, researchers, professors to apply,
2. Then they will publish a 150 pages 'tentative awardee' list with thousands of names. You can imagine how valuable it is to be one of a few thousand candidates! and God knows what is a 'tentative list' when you already announce awardees (funny).
3. Then they will force you to register their society to become a premium member by paying 5000 INR (India)/100 USD (aborad) and if you deny to pay they will deny you the award,
4. This is clearly a well-organized scheme/scam to collect money and this award has no value in academia,
5. For my case, I am a member of several well-reputated societies like IEEE, OSA, SPIE, APS, and OSI (India) and received several awards/grants from IEEE, OSA and SPIE. So I was curious to discover what InSc is...
6. I happily endorse many Indian scientific communities, therefore, I even offered them to compensate all the costs they borne to process my award once they send the certificate. They denied.
7. 5000 INR is not much, that's why a few people just pay to mention it in their CV but you can calculate that how much money InSc collect by the scam,
7. In conclusion, of course I did not pay anything, refused the award upfront and asked all my academician friends to stay away from InSc. Being a member of IEEE, OSA, SPIE, APS, OSI and if I felt the InSc is worthwhile enough I already became a member of this society.
8. Overall, the money does not matter but it was a humiliating experience for me where a society ask you to 'buy' an award after they nominate you!!!
9. I already communicated with a few Govt. organizations/legal houses to verify if this society has a legal registration and waiting for their responses.
Therefore, do not just pay anything for such societies whose only objective is to trick people utilizing well-organized business schemes without having enough knowledge about them. Good luck! Hope it helps :-)

Cities are definitely magnets of economic growth and their ecological metabolism
is more than questionable. Intentional communities that can facilitate authentic human experience have no place in the city machinery. In anthropological terms, civilizational and cultural progress of humanity developed also in tents. To my experience and knowledge, with respect to more humane and natural cities, only geonomics (earth sharing/caring) will work, i.e. the collection of urban land value into a few pockets, in terms of economic rent, is the root cause of human degeneration and alienation in metropolitan areas.

Any scholars out there looking at organizational authenticity from a more internal perspective. Much of the literature out there seems to be consumption focused and often cultural, e.g. authentic wine, authentic music. Anybody looking at how organizations appear authentic to internal stakeholders, employees in general, but also different sub-groups. So this is more like authentic leadership, but at an organizational level of analysis rather than individual leaders. Particularly interested to understand the authenticity work organizations engage in as well as how it is received.
For a practical example, think about recent amazon adverts that highlight conditions in amazon warehouses and afford opportunities to tour them, whilst this is very much about communicating to customers, it is also aimed at potential employees and the reactions of current employees would shed light on how authentically the organization is seen as providing good work/conditions. Hopefully that helps explain things!
Relevant answer
Answer
What do you mean by authenticity?
Amazon has experienced bad press due to working practices that stress ongoing performance improvement, and Taylorist methods to evaluate human capacity. This includes measurement of bio data, heart rate, cholesterol levels, etc, via a techno bracelet. Not sure what these are called. They use piece rate measures to control the fulfilment order of each staff member.
They have targets for fulfilment.
Due to covid , staff complained about conditions and experienced unsympathetic managers,
These concerns are mainly about fulfillment centres, not the university settings they create for r and d staff.
Amazon also does not recognize trade unions.
Due to negative press, Amazon has been promoting how great they are to work for in UK. The PR is for employees and customers. I think you mean that claims about enlightened leadership is somewhat limited when staff benefits and work environment are very different for higher grade employers.
I use Amazon as great service, but I'm not convinced on friendly management...it's tough on low performers, and like Tom Peters said, their corporate strategy is not like a church sermon, they want to satisfy shareholders.

Dear Li Zhou, it is a common problem in LCMS analysis when one wants to assign an identification to observed chromotographic peaks. Unlike in GCMS analysis, ionization of the eluting compounds is not standarized and the resulting mass spectra are not library searcheable. Your options to identify the compounds depend for a large part on the technical parameters of the equipment used and the skills of the operator. For instance, if a well calibrated Orbitrap is used as the MS, chemical composition calculations can shed light on the chemical formula of the eluting compound. Accurate mass can help inmensely, but is not a panacee. The fragmentation pattern, knowledge about the preferred ionization (M+H, M+Na, M-H etc) may help excluding unlikely candidates. The most simple way is to run the verified standards and compare the retention time, accurate mass and fragmentation pattern (which is heavily dependent on the ionization potential of possible coeluting compounds!). I hope this is helpful. Feel free to ask for clarification wherever needed. Kind regards, Harrie Verhoeven

I will presume that pre-COVID-19, lecturers/professors lean heavily towards the traditional (perhaps tested and tried) timed mid-term test, quiz and final exams.
However, with many of us having to teach online now and also conduct the assessments online, we have had to adapt.
What assessment options have you adopted or tried during this period that you like (perhaps because it truly tests the students' learning and also allow for fair grading or whatever other reasons)?
Relevant answer
Answer
I have had a good experience with using online presentations via Zoom – in fact, these have been better than (in person) presentations pre-covid , perhaps because students are getting uses to the online format and it is easier to control. Submission of essay-style assignments has been largely unaffected, and online quiz-style tests are useful, even though they are not a replacement for exams.

Similarly, if research is not published in top ranking Journals, one should not blame oneself rather one needs to introspect whether the manuscript is stuffed with relevant review, method, authentic data and robust findings along with implications or not. Indeed, one must read and understand the published papers in the Journals one aspiring for.
