Samuel Gershon’s question to Hector Warnes

Barry Blackwell: Lithium controversy

Samuel Gershon’s question to Hector Warnes (Warnes response to Barry Blackwell’s reply to his comment)

I think your response to Barry Blackwell’s reply to your comment make us all very aware about which word is actually correct for a particular case of attribution for its use. We edit a journal (Bipolar Disorders) and are reporting an increasing number of cases ‘we call’, “plagiarism” and it appears this word is being applied increasingly by many journals. Is this related to serendipity of a finding and does this require careful investigation and research?
