Research Cloning

That's a far lovelier phrase than 'self-plagiarism,' 'duplicate publication', or 'concurrent publications.' And I got it from this post by Debora Weber-Wulff.

The latest to get caught for research cloning is Bruno Frey.

Read this whiplash he (and his coauthors) received from an editor at one of the four -- yes, four -- journals that published his work. Immediately following it is a pretty abject apology from Frey.

Weber-Wulff also sends us to the iceberg that sank this Titanic. Don't forget to read the comments!
