Writing on his Ipbiz site, Ebert said:
"One co-author is a convicted felon, one co-author has had his name removed, but JRM won't retract it."Ebert also had more details on the plagiarism issue from The Scientist magazine.
"Fertility and Sterility has censured the authors(including Cha) of a 2005 article after learning a Korean journal had published the identical paper one year earlier. The Fertility and Sterility authors also left off the name of Jeong-Hwan Kim, who was listed as the first author on the Korean paper and performed the bulk of the research reported in both papers."The Scientist piece continued:
"The journal will also issue a note in an upcoming issue describing the transgression, and has barred every author listed on the original Fertility and Sterility paper from contributing papers to the journal for three years, editor Alan DeCherney told The Scientist. 'This is a serious punishment.'"Sphere: Related Content
