Fraudulent academic peer review and citation ring busted

From the Retraction Watch blog: SAGE Publications busts “peer review and citation ring.”

SAGE Publishers is retracting 60 articles from the Journal of Vibration and Control after an investigation revealed a “peer review and citation ring” involving a professor in Taiwan.

Wow: sixty papers were retracted. The statement from SAGE on this incident is available on their site, and a complete list of retracted articles can be found in the retraction notice.
