The discussion on publishing models, the problems of peer-review and the lack of reproducibility in science took a new turn last week when Nature Publishing Group stiffened their policies on data integrity. This is a great move and motivated by concerns over the reproducibility of published work. Indeed I have heard from industry figures as […]

The tension between peer-reviewed publishing and the reaction to papers once published in blogs, tweets and other internet media has come to light in comments on my postings on the stripy nanoparticle debate. This led me to post on the subject, “blogs and science“. An article on the last moves in the debate on the […]

There is a most revealing guest post on Raphael’s blog by Philip Moriarty, from the University of Nottingham entitled “Request for raw data: author’s and editors’ responses“. Philip Moriarty has apparently been trying to obtain some of the raw STM data of nanoparticles with stripy ligand shells since mid December from Francesco Stellacci. Without success. […]

This post is a summary of the responses I have received from journals after they were provided with the evidence for five cases of the re-use of data (self-plagiarism) in seven of Francesco Stellacci’s papers on “stripy nanoparticles”. First, it is important to establish what are the rules of the game.

David Bradley has posted an article on stripy nanoparticles at Materials Today. The end of the piece highlights an interstingissue. To quote “If only there were some centralised system for pulling all the arguments together and perhaps tying them to the original papers from Stellacci and from Lévy. Perhaps we will one day see such […]

There was an article on “Stripy Nanoparticles” in the Times Higher (THE) by Paul Jump on Jan 10. It was followed by a series of comments. Most of the comments (a substantial number from anonymous commentators) reckon that there is no evidence for stripes on nanoparticles.

An end of the year tradition is to get the bad stuff out of the way, so that the New Year can be ushered in without contamination by the bad (this includes cleaning the house!). Apparently (like choosing the right person for “first footing”) this brings good luck, though personally, I think that stochastic processes […]

With a past PhD student of Francesco Stellacci’s, Predrag Djuranovic, weighing in to the debate, I think there are some important questions and some interesting observations that should be made.

I have been prompted to write this post following a number of unrelated events two of which are: (1) Comments on Raphael’s blog “Stripy nanoparticles revisited” post. The comment, by Someone has to say it, states that one is either a scientist or a blogger. I would note that of all the comments, this is […]
