Who is Nelson Tansu?

  1. 1. Who is Nelson Tansu? Research by Roy Perera Independent Institute of Education and Research Consultant
  2. 2. SensationalYoungest Professor  “After obtaining his doctorate, Nelson got the offer to be professors from top universities in the United States. Finally, in early 2003, when he was aged 25 years, he became youngest assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, Lehigh University. Lehigh University is a top university in engineering and physics in the East Coast, United States.”

  25. 25. Citation Needed Answer:Tansu citation machine!
  26. 26. Self citations ProfessorTansu
  27. 27. Self Plagiarism
  28. 28. Self Citation  Tansu publish copiously, duplicating publication in conferences and journals, and like to cite himself heavily.  The reason ofTansu to commit misconduct, can be explained by Career pressure.  Scientists depend on a good reputation to receive ongoing support and funding; and a good reputation relies largely on the publication of high-profile scientific papers.  Clearly, this may motivate desperate (or fame-hungry) scientists to fabricate results.
  29. 29. Self Plagiarism Surface plasmon dispersion engineering via double-metallic Au/Ag layers for nitride light-emitting diodes. After publishing the same paper 3 times,Tansu made it a patent! Self plagiarisms for a patent!
  30. 30. Self Plagiarims
  31. 31. Tansu Style  Tansu publish copiously, duplicating publication in conferences and journals, and like to cite himself heavily.
  32. 32. Coercive Citation  A journal’s editor is uniquely positioned to be familiar with the papers published in his journal and may highlight his own references that is of at least relevance to the one chosen by the author, as part of normal peer-review.This is coercive citation.

NelsonTansu is also an editor for Hindawi International Journal of Photoenergy .  Article”Efficiency and Droop Improvement in GaN-Based High-Voltage Flip Chip LEDs” was edited byTansu and contains 5 coerced citations. Citation of Editor’s article is a must.
  38. 38. Milena Penkowa?  Milena Penkowa was a Danish neuroscientist, is another case that has made a big news in the research community.Milena Penkowa represents an interesting case of a young scientist making a fantastic career in Danish science at Copenhagen University.At every possible occasion Milena Penkowa was put forward as a role model for young scientists. Now, to the embarrassment of the Danish scientific establishment, it turns out that Milena Penkowa was cheating with her scientific works
  39. 39. 2014 Nobel Prize Winner  Shuji Nakamura  Born: 22 May 1954, Ikata, Japan  Affiliation at the time of the award: University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA  Prize motivation: "for the invention of efficient blue light- emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources"  Field: semiconductor technology  Prize share: 1/3
