Forbidden fruit: duplication of mango paper forces retraction
Here’s some friendly advice. If you’re going to publish a paper titled “In Vitro Studies for Resistance to Anthracnose Disease (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides Penz.) in Different Mango Hybrid Seedlings,” make sure the article is in fact, well…different.
It has been determined that the article titled “In Vitro Studies for Resistance to Anthracnose Disease (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides Penz.) in Different Mango Hybrid Seedlings” by Ashutosh Pandey, Brajesh Kumar Pandey, Muthukumar Manoharan, Sailendar Rajan, L. P. Yadava and Ugam Kumari Chauhan that published in Volume 12, Issue 4, 2012, of the International Journal of Fruit Science is substantially similar to an already published article titled “In vitro Screening for Resistance to Anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides) in Different Mango (Mangifera indica) Hybrids,” written by the same authors and published in Volume 6, Issue 2, 2011, of the Tunisian Journal of Plant Protection.
As a result, the article published in the International Journal of Fruit Science has been retracted and thus should not be cited in the electronic or print version of the journal.
