The Editor of Journal B is to blame since he did not do all that is possible to confirm that the paper has not unpublished elsewhere. The Author signed a contract with Editor A which is still binding. Editor B should publish in the next available Journal for withdrawal of the paper and those who have used the material from the Journal should be advised to attach the editor’s comment on the withdrawal to their paper to indicate that they used it while it was still ‘published’ in Journal B.

There are many such practices were found and reported by the publishers earlier. In this situation, the published may retract the paper for dual publication to avoid the valuable time to spend on this issue.

Both the journals should remove the paper from their list of published articles. The author May have submitted the articles to both the journals simultaneously.
Author is solely responsible for this mess.
Both the journals should announce it on their website. The matter should be circulated to other publication houses.
The journal should be more careful and check for similar articles before final publication of the article.

Blacklist such authors and inform their employer.

Blacklist such authors and inform their employer.

Should we pursue the matter with the editor of the journal (Journal B) who has published the duplicate submission?
Yes, but if they are not screening for plagiarism you can well imagine the standard of the journal B.

This is a practical problem of author and publisher so we can do the following. 1. Publisher A should get an undertaking seperately mentioning a period for publishing the article and publisher should send the process stage of the article to the author. 2. Publisher A can not take action on Publisher B since B is no way at fault. 3. It is an ethical issue that has to be solved with proper understanding from both sides. 4. In my experience I am not getting even acknowledgement from the publisher and the author is kept dark. 5. As done by… Read more »

If the author is blame, both Journal A and Journal B should sue the author. Since Journal B publishes the article after Journal A, B Journal should returned it to the author without the consent of the author and delete the article from the relevant website. In addition, if the article was published in Journal B as hard copy (printed), it should publish an editorial article in next issues due to unethical publication, and firstly officially inform the both author and author’s institution that this article has been canceled due to the unethical rules of publication.

The Author should never submit the article to two journals simultaneously. Publisher A is at no fault. However publisher A has a choice of not withdrawing the paper and informing the author about unethical practice.. The publisher B did not check if the paper has been sent to any other journal. As this is important in publishing ethics. Author has to commit that the article has not been sent to otherjournal in part or whole article. If author has submitted such a letter to both the publishers. Then it’s the author’s fault. And the article must be withdrawn from both… Read more »

Submitting a journal to two publishers is misconduct. The author might submit to both journals simultaneously. In this case, the problem is solely on the authors, therefore, both of the publishers should remove the article from their list. But if the authors submitted to Journal B after Journal A has published the article, the problem goes to both the author and Journal B, journal B should have checked if it is published somewhere. In this case, Journal B should be communicated to remove from its list. In both cases, the authors should be communicated to get a lesson from their… Read more »

As my experience, what should authors do, a research do long time research, write paper and send to journal, then most journals take to long to send reviewers, and reviewers reject within one weak, Is it right of reviewer to reject a long time experiment?

I think that both journals shoukd remove the paper from their published issue and anounce the name of the author in this regard and also anounce that both journals have put the author in their black list which means that no paper of this author will consider for publication any more.

Dr. Muhammad Ayaz

In this particular case, author is mainly responsible for dual submission and unethical publishing. Equally is the publisher of journal B guilty, since they didn’t ensured high publishing standards by not checking similarity of already published work. However, time of the submission to Journal B is important, because if author made simultenious submissions then Journal B is not guilty as similarity must be within limit at that time. But if author submitted the same manuscript after being published in journal A, then Journal A is also guilty. By now both journals should retract the manuscript from their website clearly indicating… Read more »

The authors are responsible for it. Check the list and order of authors, as well as corresponding author. If the corresponding author is the same then he should black listed in both journals. Editors of both journals must contact with each other for the decision, please.

-The author have to face citation rate on publishing the same article in duplicate i.e. some citations will go to one journal while rest to other.

-There should be a system with journals to recognize the duplication of submitted paper.

– plegerism detection can also support the processing journal.

-Duplicating authors should be black-listed and list be followed by whole the editing community

I presume the author read the guidelines before he or she submitted the manuscript. In this case, Journal A may take the published manuscript out not because of the author’s order, but due to unethical practice of the author. Or, Journal A may decide to leave the published work with them and write to Journal B to inform that the paper has been published first in A. In addition, the journal council may request for proof of submission from the author, Journal A and B. The date of submission will tell whether the work was submitted simultaneously to A and… Read more »

Journal-A has no fault, The problem is with Journal-B and the author. Has the author given the undertaking that the article is not submitted somewhere else. Whether Journal B has has run the turnitin to see if the article was published/plagiarized.. If not then author and Journal B should be given punishment. May be the Journal A has not uploaded the journal to the website, therefore was not visible to Journal B. Or Journal A has not saved the article report to the repository while running turnitin. Author is of course to be blamed.. but it should be seen why… Read more »

1. Publisher of Journal A should debar the author for publishing future article to this journal and this should be announce to a larger community.

2. The author is solely responsible for this.

3.Nothing to do with journal B , except sending a copy of the debar notification to them.

Thanks for the e-mail. I my opinion, it is the author who is at fault. As such, such authors should be barred from submission of further articles in future. This is for the betterment of the scientific community and research ethics. The Editor of Journal B should contact the Editior of Journal A for such scientific mis-conduct to highlight the issue against the author of the concerned article.

It is strange that why author contact Journal A in which article was published in 2011…….if it was happen by any mistake then author must to contact Journal B for removal from their website………..

it is not clear that when paper was published in journal B????
But as published after Journal A then I think that mainly author and then Journal B are responsible for this misconduct!

The paper, since it might have got already cited by several workers as an article from journal A, the only solution is to remove the paper from journal B either by the author or the publishers for the reason of double publication. There is no ethical or legal standing for the author to argue for the withdrawal of the paper from Journal A. It seems that the papers were not simultaneously submitted. Even if submitted simultaneously, the author has the responsibility to withdraw the submission to journal B once it gets published in journal A.

The author is definitely primarily responsible. It may be that the author submittied to both journals at the same time (for example if journal B is more prestigious). The editors of journal B could have done a better job at searching for duplicate articles or text, so they are also partially to blame. C.

Both the author and Journal B have committed gross misconduct.
1. The author: submitting a duplicate manuscript to journal B
2. Journal B: Not checking for plagiarism of submitted manuscript.

By agreeing to this misconduct, both the author and publisher B are eligible for punishment from this association. Be banned after retraction of the publication from journal B.

the author is the primary culprit based on these facts: An article was submitted to a Journal (Journal A) for publication in 2011. According to the Journal’s policy, the article undergoes the initial screening, peer review and revisions as well as final proofreading from author and accordingly published within the same year in the Journal A. Soon after the publication, same author submitted the same manuscript to another local Journal (Journal B) and got published there also. unless he was not aware or had submitted the paper without informing the editor of journal A ahead of time. best way forward.… Read more »

It is pertinent to editor of a jounal to always send the guidelines to author(s) before accepting to review and publish their article. Again, most journal should develop a technique of first finding out the status of received articles before sending it our for review. Moreso, plagerism test and softwares to detect such are readily available. Making sure that every received article passes through such test before reviewing would go a long way to avoid such future occurrences. For now, out of the two journals, the one that publshed later should remove the article from its site. It should have… Read more »

According to me both the editors of the journal are not responsible for such mis deeds by the author. The entire responsibility lies with the author and the institution where the author has givenils the address. Once the information is known to the editors of the journal, contact the institution head where the author is associated and convey the details. Every institution has got their own mechanism for giving punishment to such authors for such unethical activities

The fault lies obviously with the communicating author of the paper. He did not own the copyrights of the paper once it was published in Journal A. Presumably, he/she was asked to declare that he/she owned the copyrights of the paper and had the authority to assign it to Journal B. If he/she signed off on that declaration, he/she was committing a fraud. You cannot sell a property that you do not own. Journal B can be blamed for not doing the due diligence in checking for prior publication, but they have been conned by the author. Journal B should… Read more »

It does appear to me that the author deliberately published the article in two journals to advance a selfish interest and is currently requesting a retraction from one journal because he/she probably now realizes the secret is in the open.
This action is an academic fraud and should be so treated.
I am of the opinion that the article be retracted from both journals and this should be done publicly.
It may also be necessary to officially inform the Institution to which the author is affiliated.

This is a very clear duplication in submission which is a clear unethical misconduct from all authors. A. The editor of the Journal A should write a letter to the Editor of Journal B informing about duplication in publication and ask the editor of the journal to retract the article. Or while informing the editor of the journal B, alternatively the editor in the journal A can also make a decision by retracting the manuscript from their journal and ban the authors for certain period from submitting their manuscript to Journal A B. This case is a clear wrong-doing of… Read more »

This, in my opinion, could be the result of delayed article processing by some journals (Journal A in this case).

The author, of course, is the one to be blamed first.

Also, the journal B should have been pro-active and should have screened for plagiarism (which probably could have found the duplicity)

My suggestion to the journal publishers: Expedite the reviewing process. Must screen for plagiarism, even before approving for peer-review

Here are my thoughts for reference: Anyway, the paper has to be retracted either solely from Journal B/Journal A or from both. The major decision factors are whether an agreement had been signed appropriately and timely, and how the author’s attitude is. Because the author submitted the paper after the paper had been published in Journal A, there are only two cases as below: Case ONE. Journal A signed an agreement. The author should be clearly asked to retract the paper from Journal B (in case Journal A has not done so yet) and Journal B should agree on this… Read more »
