In another unusual twist in the tumultuous history of XMRV, the journal PLoS Pathogens has apologized to a corresponding author for retracting the first paper on the virus without contacting him beforehand. In a statement posted on PLoS Blogs on Friday, Editor-in-Chief Kasturi Haldar acknowledged that the 2006 paper should not have been pulled without consulting Robert Silverman of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, one of two corresponding authors. But Haldar defended the editorial decision to retract the paper, which has been the subject of an intense online debate for the past week. PLoS Pathogens retracted the paper, which reported the discovery of XMRV and its putative link to prostate cancer, on 18 September after a new study, co-authored by Silverman and published in PLoS ONE, had shown that the 2006 findings were the result of an accidental lab contamination. Silverman says he was “completely blindsided” by the retraction; he felt a correction would have been enough because the discovery of XMRV as a new virus still stands and other papers have corrected the erroneous link to prostate cancer. PLoS Pathogens says it did notify the other corresponding author, Joseph DeRisi of the University of California, San Francisco—with whom editors had corresponded during the submission and review of the paper — about the impending retraction in a 27 August e-mail; when DeRisi didn’t reply, the editors retracted on their own. Since then, “We have apologized for not contacting the second corresponding author,” Haldar’s statement says. “Our expectation was that the first would discharge responsibilities to all remaining authors. We have since corresponded with all authors.” Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) On Saturday, DeRisi posted a response to the retraction, in which he said he agreed with it. But whether he received the 27 August e-mail, and if so, why he failed to respond or to alert his co-authors, remains unclear. (DeRisi did not respond to multiple emails and voice messages from ScienceInsider.) Silverman says he cannot comment on DeRisi’s inaction; “Suffice it to say we have not been in contact for a long time,” he says. As to the journal’s apology, “I accept it, and I really appreciate it,” he says. Retraction guidelines from the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) say that editors should negotiate with authors on how to phrase a retraction, but not whether a journal should contact all of the authors, or what it should do when they don’t respond to an e-mail. The XMRV paper may well lead to more specific guidelines in the future, says COPE Chair Virginia Barbour, who’s also PLoS medicine editorial director. Meanwhile, a vigorous debate has erupted on whether the paper by DeRisi and Silverman needed to be retracted in the first place. Readers of PLoS Blogs and the Web site Retraction Watch have argued that there is no need to retract papers with honest mistakes in them, and that the word retraction carries the connotation of scientific misconduct. Haldar stands by the decision to retract, on which “six senior PLoS Pathogens editors unanimously agreed,” given that its key findings were wrong. But in a post following her statement, Barbour acknowledges that there is “a clear need to have a discussion about how to annotate the literature post publication,” and invites readers to chime in. “Specifically, it is clear that somehow ‘retraction’ implies ‘malfeasance’ and although we at PLOS don’t share that view, we understand that it is others’ perception,” Barbour writes.

bigger in magnitude because of a fast tectonic-plate collision according to a study The finding by researchers from ETH Zurich in Switzerland provides a more complete view of the risk of earthquakes in mountainous regions The study shows that the frequency and magnitude of large earthquakes in the densely populated regions close to mountain chains – such as the Alps Apennines Himalaya and Zagros – depend on the collision rate of the smaller tectonic plates In 2015 a magnitude 78 earthquake struck Gorkha-Nepal and a year later Norcia Italy suffered a magnitude 62 earthquake Previous research has attempted to explain the physical causes of earthquakes like these but with ambiguous results For the first time resaerchers show that the rate at which tectonic plates collide controls the magnitude of earthquakes in mountainous regions This is because the faster they collide the cooler the temperatures and the larger the areas that generate earthquakes This increases the relative number of large earthquakes they said “The impact of large earthquakes in mountain belts is devastating” said Luca Dal Zilio from ETH Zürich “Understanding the physical parameters behind the frequency and magnitude of earthquakes is important to improve the seismic hazard assessment” said Zilio lead author of the study published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters There are seven large tectonic plates and several smaller ones in the Earth’s lithosphere – its outermost layers These plates move sliding and colliding and that movement causes mountains and volcanoes to form and earthquakes to happen The researchers developed 2D models that simulate the way the tectonic plates move and collide The seismo-thermo-mechanical (STM) modelling approach utilises long-time scale processes to explain short time scale problems replicating the results observed from the historical earthquake catalogues It shows graphically the distribution of earthquakes by their magnitude and frequency that are caused by movement in the orogeny – a belt of the Earth’s crust involved in the formation of mountains The simulations suggest that the magnitude and frequency of the earthquakes in mountainous regions are directly related to the rate at which the tectonic plates collide For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related News Cocooned in its own chaotic
