An editor at among the journals released by Sage Publications became suspicious, sparking a comprehensive and lengthy investigation, which resulted in the retraction of 60 articles in July 2014. At the final end of 2014, BioMed Central and other publishers alerted the international Committee on Publication Ethics to new types of systematic attempts to manipulate journals’ peer-review processes. According to a statement published on COPE’s internet site in January 2015, these initiatives to hijack the scholarly review system were apparently orchestrated by organizations that initial helped authors create or improve their scientific articles and then sold them favorable peer evaluations.4 BioMed Central conducted a comprehensive investigation of most their recently published content and identified 43 which were published based on evaluations from fabricated reviewers.
