Coercive citation in Asian Authors

194

Published on

Being authors from Asian countries make it a vulnerable target for Editor to coerce citation. Journal editors can strategically target younger professors from Asian countries. The editor forces authors to add unnecessary citations to an article before the journal will agree to publish it. The editor knows that the authors need to get their papers published and therefore more willing to add any unnecessary citations. This article shows a proof in the IEEE OSA Journal of Display Technology Journal, which has 2 special issues on Recent advances in solid state lighting.

Coercive citation in Asian Authors

  1. 1. Coercive Citation in Asian Authors By : rohwani Being authors from Asian countries make it a vulnerable target for Editor to coerce citation. Journal editors can strategically target younger professors from Asian countries. The editor forces authors to add unnecessary citations to an article before the journal will agree to publish it. The editor knows that the authors need to get their papers published and therefore more willing to add any unnecessary citations.

  2. 2. Coercive Citation to Asian Authors Coercive citation is an unethical practice done by ediotrs of academic journal publications. Some editors coerce authors into adding superfluos citations (of the editor's paper) to the submitted paper before it can be published. Journal editors want to increase the number of times their own articles being cited by researchers because it raises the editors citation index and is used to make claims of prestige and importance. Being authors from Asian countries make it a vulnerable target for Editor to coerce citation. Journal editors can strategically target younger professors from Asian countries. The editor knows that the authors need to get their papers published and therefore more willing to add the unnecessary citations. Here is a proof in the IEEE OSA Journal of Display Technology Journal, who published special issue on Recent advances in solid state lighting. The Guest Editor is Nelson tansu, a well known professor in electrical engineering for alleged self citation. IEEE OSA Journal of Display Technology Volume 9, Issue 4 (April 2013). http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/tocresult.jsp?isnumber=6481607&punumber=9425 Each of the papers in the Special issue is analysed and showed that all of the papers cited Tansu unnecessarily Effects of H2 in GaN barrier spacer layer of InGaN/GaN multiple quantum-well light-emitting diodes.

All papers have 6-16 citations to Tansu, and noticed all the authors are from China, Taiwan and Singapore where an editor can easily coerced the authors. The only paper that escaped is by Feezell and Shuji Nakamura, a well-known authority in InGaN LED. This is in accordance with the research by Wilhite and Fong that many journal editors appear to strategically target certain authors, such as assistant and associate professors (from Asian countries), rather than full professors (Nakamura), relying on the fact that lower ranking authors may be more willing to add the unnecessary citations. They also found that while the majority of authors disapprove of the practice, most Coercive Citation in Asian Authors 3

This pattern is observed and more pronounced in the special issue which was continued in Issue 5, Tansu was again a guest editor for IEEE OSA Journal of Display Technology in Volume 9, Issue 5 (May 2013). http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/tocresult.jsp?isnumber=6488740&punumber=9425 FDTD Analysis on Extraction Efficiency of GaN Light-Emitting Diodes With Microsphere Arrays Zhu, P. ; Liu, G. ; Zhang, J. ; Tansu, N. 12 citations to Tansu 1.

Surface-Roughened Light-Emitting Diodes: An Accurate Model David, A. 0 citations to Tansu13. All papers in this issue have 9-14 citations to Tansu, and noticed the authors are from China, Taiwan, Korea, India and Singapore where an editor can easily coerced the authors. Only papers by English authors managed to escape the coercion. This is a big anomaly, why 2 of the American papers do not quote Tansu in the references while all other papers have 9-14 citations to Tansu? Not unexpectedly, citation manipulation is observed. The subject gained more than 270 citations from two special issues, thanks to IEEE OSA Journal of Display Technology. In conclusion, coercive citation has been found for authors from Asian countries (China, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, india) who are more than willing to cite the editor's paper so their paper can be published easily.
