Crap… [Power / Sample Size]

Hi nobody,

» Would not spend a single cent on such a nonsense. How does somethink like that survive peer review?
» Now that is published it will be referenced and used as "scientific basis" for further conclusions/studies.

That’s a slow-burn! My memory-span is better than ElMaestro’s (two weeks?) but it took me a while to recall. I was asked in May 2016 about my opinion. The editor wasn’t even sure whether he should reject the manuscript right away or initiate the review process. My response was: “The manuscript is without any scientific value.” I used some strong words which I won’t post here. Will send it to you by PM.

Obviously the editor didn’t listen to me and the reviewers were blind.
Explains why it is called “blind review”. :angry:

» How to get such trash retracted?

Practically impossible. You could writer a letter to the editor. Detlew and I tried that once, but the procedure was endless and after months (!) the editor of Pharm Res. suggested we should submit a full MS instead. This was not our intention. We didn’t discover anything new. Only wanted to point out that another article (which made it through the review) was pooh.
