More plagiarism in science journals

From The Scientist:

Two journals appear to be involved in plagiarizing scientific articles that have been published elsewhere. In one case, a publisher called Science Reuters—which puts out the journal Pharmacologia—listed papers from PLOS journals and elsewhere in the table of contents of numerous issues of its Science Reuters journal. Another publisher, Insight Knowledge, also published parts of papers in Insight Biomedical Science that appeared in PLOS ONE and the African Journal of Biochemistry Research. Researchers whose papers were in Science Reuters's table of contents say they had no idea their work was being used by the journal.

“That is distressing, because we've never submitted an article to Science Reuters,” said Mark Johnson, an associate professor at Brown University. “I'm not even aware that Science Reuters is a journal.”
