Publication Ethics Resources
Tuesday, February 5, 2019 | 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm Eastern | Register<https://www.sneb.org/events/2019/02/05/upcoming-webinar/publication-ethics-…>
About the Webinar
As the number of published articles continues to increase each year, so do the number of fraudulent studies. In fact, the number of retractions in the biomedical literature increased from 467 in 2013 to 684 in 2015 (source: https://www.vox.com/2016/3/24/11299102/scientific-retractions-are-on-the-ri…). Fortunately, there are tools available for editors (and reviewers) to help them handle ethically questionable manuscripts at the time of submission or post publication. This webinar provides an overview of two free resources available to editors (and reviewers) to help handle publishing ethics allegations - the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and the Publishing Ethics Resource Kit (PERK).
This webinar is sponsored by the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

Lessons from around the world.
T*he second report in the WCRF Building Momentum series has just been
released. It explores how to implement a front-of-pack food label (FOPL)
by taking the lessons learned from governments all over the world who have
already developed and implemented a FOPL.*
*These labels are an effective and appropriate policy measure to tackle the
growing burden caused by diet-related non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such
as cancer, by helping consumers make informed, healthier choices. Yet
labels continue to be hotly debated. *

More negative research for GMOs.
We need to have more research on agrochemicals and genetic engineering and their impact on our earth and people.

> Rigging the Science of GMO Ecotoxicity
> by Jonathan Latham, PhD
> Synopsis: Cry toxins are controversial proteins that kill insects and other organisms. They are commonly inserted into GMO crops, some of which now contain six different transgenic versions. A large body of research has now shown, to the discomfort of the biotech industry, that these toxins can have major effects on beneficial and other non-pest organisms. Our investigation has uncovered that some academics, including one with very close ties to industry, have secretively started adding chemical antidotes to their ecological test diets. These test diets can be expected–and some already have–to give Cry toxins a clean bill of health in ecological toxicity tests. This research is additionally being used to discredit previously gathered evidence of Cry toxin harm.
