The Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries pulled a paper by the Iranian academics I. Mohammadfam and H. Nikoomaram because it "plagiarized parts" of other papers, a retraction notice says. (You can still read the paper, called "FTA vs. Tripod-Beta, which seems better for the analysis of major accidents in process industries?")
"We’ll argue that for JLPPI, if not the authors, this loss was preventable," the authors of Retraction Watch write.
The journal belongs to Elsevier, which means it ought to have access to plagiarism-detection software. And all three journals from which the Iranian duo plagiarized (including JLPPI itself) are in Elsevier’s stable.Related: Turnitin to give Ohio State professors, students a plagiarism check | Paul Krugman accused of cribbing, responds that rival's work is unreadable
