Today, an “editorial expression of concern” by science has shocked Chinese academic circles. The team of Southeast University and China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) has been on the research of science before. After being reported and suspected of academic misconduct, many pictures of the article are highly similar to those published previously, and now science officials are responding.
official account iNature said: according to past experience, “the withdrawal rate is almost 100%, and there will be no accidents”. < / P > < p > according to the information on the “scientific research and anti counterfeiting website” pubpeer, the questioner is Elizabeth bik, a well-known “professional skeptic” in the academic circle. Previously, he also questioned the problem of “improper copying” of experimental pictures in many papers by Cao Xuetao of Nankai University. Earlier, on July 22, 2020, Xing Lida and others from China University of Geosciences voluntarily withdrew the article on nature. Inature said at that time that this was the first time that Chinese scholars (with Chinese units as communication units) withdrew their articles from nature since the founding of China. < / P > < p > so what kind of research did Southeast University and China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) team question this time? What is the problem? < p > < p > the study was published in science on July 10 this year, but only a month later, it was questioned by netizens on pubpeer. < / P > < p > the red box in the above figure is the area that looks similar. The questioner asked, these two pictures are not about the same combination, should they show the same structure? < / P > < p > another scholar pointed out that although the three articles all share the same theme, they are three different material materials, and there is no correlation between them. Therefore, he questioned the coincidence of the experimental curves of the three different materials. < p > < p > the research topic of this paper belongs to the field of fuel cell. According to the summary of the paper and the relevant reports on the official website of National University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and Southeast University, this study proposed a method to improve the ionic conductivity of electrolyte, and completed the development of an electrolyte with high ionic conductivity. < / P > < p > in the past, low valence cations were used to replace high valence cations, such as doping trivalent iridium ions to replace tetravalent zirconium ions, so as to generate oxygen vacancies and improve oxygen ion conductivity. However, the structural doping method has not effectively solved the Centennial challenge of fuel cell electrolyte, which has hindered the commercialization process of fuel cell to a large extent. < p > < p > the fuel cell innovation research team of our university, for the first time, designed and constructed a proton channel with the lowest migration barrier through the electronic state characteristics of semiconductor heterogeneous interface. In fact, one month ago, when this paper was published in science, the Southeast University where Professor Zhu bin works, and China University of Geosciences (Wuhan), where Associate Professor Wu Yan is located, published the news under the title of “major breakthrough” and “original”. According to the official reports of the two universities, the research has been supported by NSFC, China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and Southeast University for the introduction of high-level talents. < / P > < p > just one month after the report of both schools, on August 10, 2020, the article was questioned for academic misconduct. At the same time, science magazine also received e-mails from two independent sources, both of which questioned the paper. After 12 years, “world class Super project” Shantou Bay Tunnel ushers in a historic breakthrough today
