Duplicate Publication: Treatment of Epiphyseal Injury of the Distal Ulna Without Associated Radial Fracture

Abstract

The article “Treatment of Epiphyseal Injury of the Distal Ulna Without Associated Radial Fracture” by Kengo Yamamoto, MD, et al, published in the February 2006 issue of Orthopedics,1 is a translation of an article by Toshiyuki Tateiwa, et al, published in the Kanto Journal of Orthopedics and Traumatology, June 2002.2 At submission, the authors sent a signed statement of authorship responsibility stating that their manuscript had not been published and was not under consideration for publication elsewhere. They also signed a document that transferred copyright ownership of the manuscript to the publisher.

The following response was received from Dr Yamamoto.—Ed.

In Reply.—I must report to you that our paper, published in Orthopedics in 2006, was actually a translation of a paper previously published in a non-indexed journal in Japanese. At the time, neither I nor my colleagues were aware of the conditions stipulated in the Uniform Requirements regarding previous publication in a non-indexed Japanese-language journal. The fact that there are changes to the authors’ names was a result of the orders of the chairman of the department at that time, Professor Atsuhiro Imakiire, now retired. I deeply regret any trouble this might cause the Journal.
