Scientific journals are expected to consider research manuscripts dispassionately and without favor. But in a study published on November 23rd, 2021, in the open access journal PLOS Biology, Alexandre Scanff, Florian Naudet and Clara Locher from the University of Rennes, and colleagues, reveal that a subset of journals may be exercising considerable bias and favoritism. In particular, they assessed authorship disparity using two potential red flags: (i) the percentage of papers in a given journal that are authored by that journal’s most prolific author, and (ii) a journal’s Gini index, a statistical measure widely sed by economists to describe income or wealth inequalities .Editorial Bias and Nepotism in Biomedical Journals Revealed by Massive Study (scitechdaily.com)
