Over the last some-odd months we have published letters and online comments to try to clarify and correct the literature where we saw plagiarism, potentially invalidating analyses, and overstatements of results. See some below:

Comment on “Intervention effects of a school-based health promotion programme on obesity related behavioural outcomes.”
Comment on “School-Based Obesity Prevention Intervention in Chilean Children: Effective in Controlling, but not Reducing Obesity.”
Concerning Sichieri R, Cunha DB: Obes Facts 2014;7:221-232. The Assertion that Controlling for Baseline (Pre-Randomization) Covariates in Randomized Controlled Trials Leads to Bias Is False.
Letter to the Editor: Exceptional Data in Paper on “The effect of meridian massage on BM, BMI, WC and HC in simple obesity patients: a randomized controlled trial.”
