The Max Planck Society (MPS) in Germany has begun legal proceedings against publishers Wiley International in a dispute over an editorial in the February issue of Human Brain Mapping……
It wants the journal to publish a letter from the society addressing these concerns without delay…..
[Peter] Fox, together with the three other editors of the special issue, published an extended editorial analysing the dispute in the framework of ethics. This appeared online on 9 December 2008 and in print in the February issue of Human Brain Mapping…..
