In recent days, various queries happen to be elevated in regards to the validity of latest findings on STAP cells by a small group of Japanese scientists, with a few who work included in the analysis team suggesting the Nature paper, co-created by youthful investigator Obokata Haruko. be withdrawn altogether until any issues can be handled .
Particularly, there has been accusations of plagiarism and also the reuse of identical images within the paper, that have brought to concern one of the academic community.
Now, Hamusoku netizens seems to possess found the things they claim is Obokata’s PhD thesis online, and also have noticed that the opening chapter within the thesis seems to possess been lifted, sentence after sentence, in the U.S. National Institutes of Health website. Although this by itself isn’t as serious an accusation as plagiarizing scientific results (which has additionally been recommended), it rarely is in overlooked by individuals who’re already believing that something is amiss.
The data in the NIH website, and Obokata’s supposed thesis appear below, so that you can decide upon yourself. But do keep in mind that Obokata has yet to talk out concerning the situation these sources have yet to be verified.
[Women In Science LOL] Obokata Haruko’s PhD Thesis Seen To Be Plagiarized…Obokata Haruko Proves That Exist A Waseda PhD Having A Plagiarized Thesis
Just about any sentence from the opening chapter of Obokata’s PhD thesis, titled “BACKGROUND” continues to be plagiarized in the NIH site below (Stem Cell Basics):stemcells.nih.gov/info/basics/pages/basics1.aspx
Obokata’s complete PhD thesis:
Pdf of “Background” [opening chapter] (including cover page and contents).
/ Yoichi OCHIAI:
How should it be also possible! I figured. However I just read the 2 versions, plus they’re completely exactly the same. RT @JuuichiJigen Just about any sentence continues to be plagiarized from stemcells.nih.gov/info/basics/pages/basics1.aspx …
@ochyai It’s the identical LMFAO world wide web Nah, nah, I am talking about, people also have this sort of problem once they’re citing others…but it comes down to the initial sentence. … This really is deplorable…
Oh, one more thing, the image marked Figure 1, that is in “Background”, seems to possess been lent from the picture that’s been submitted here world wide web.visembryo.com/baby/NewsArchive136.html …
Within the Novartis Diovan clinical research scandal. I hear it had become very hard to simply accept the clinical research thesis from Japan [where clinical data were altered by Japanese scientists], however this time, with Obokata, it appears that the fundamental research thesis will most likely be very hard to simply accept. Exactly what a pity.
New genre: plagiarism women.
I realize the response towards the plagiarism. But can they need to make fun of ladies scientists? The greater people we obtain in science, the bigger the talent pool, the greater possibility of humanity taking advantage of their research.
Generalization of all things may be the Asian way… children an Asian… LOL
It ought to be simply “Rikejo” because () can be used to make fun from the term itself in 2ch.
The quantity of misogyny within the comments section isn’t surprising. The problem here ought to be about dishonest individuals who game the loop-holes in academic peer-review journals. It ought to do not have anything related to the truth that charge author is actually female. Perhaps you should treat women like… oh I don’t know, people?
I recall the 2005 fiasco in Korea, with Korea’s own stem cell investigator who faked his Nature printed new stem cells. Japan counseled me over that certain, saying things like typical Korean fakes and liars, and that i remember how they chuckled and transported on, turning this news right into a racial flaw of Koreans.
Well, if ain’t the chicken that came the place to find roost. Because now Japan is going to their very own Dr. Hwang moment. Let’s observe how Japan handles this humiliation.
You’ve got to be old or really obsessive about Japan’s opinion of all things your country does. It is best to find a hobby. Mountain climbing is fun.
chucky3176 is appropriate. Japanese netizens have a tendency to obsess on each and every negative news about korea, its like mainstream culture.
He stated japan, as with all Japanese people. Not netizens. Which is undoubtedly false.
I additionally can’t believe you place mainstream culture and japanese netizen within the same sentence.
The reason why she’s being made fun of about this board happens because she
1is a lady
2 visited a personal college(public is recognized as better and you will find many jokes relating to this)
3 visited waseda(a great but also referred to as a celebration college)
4 is really a science girl
Netizens target everybody Koreans or otherwise. Its the way the board works.
You need to atleast receive that in the article.
I believe this story yet others enjoy it virtually prove that college levels are largely useless. In the end discovering someone faked their degree following a effective career proves that it requires greater than a $100,000 education and slip of paper to become effective.
But this is a symbol of nationalism, as apparent within their comments about how exactly humiliating to Japan – it’s not only about her gender or details. Even though they are doing target everybody, it’s true they disproportionately target Koreans.
”But this is a symbol of nationalism, as apparent within their comments about how exactly humiliating to Japan”
This can be a normal reaction for any collectivist society, which is not always because of nationalism. Inside a collectivist society, should you choose something from the norm or something like that which makes the audience look bad you’ll be a target for scrutiny.
“And when they do target everybody, it’s true they disproportionately target Koreans.”
No, they stunning much target everybody, however if you simply’re asking about who they concentrate on the most, it might be japan themselves(There are lots of trolls that publish “HAHAHA JAAAPPP LOL” in self-deprecation threads or threads using the title (Japan is completed)).
You’ve most likely only cared to see Korean related articles because, well, you’re Korean.
And you simply prefer to explain everything away since you’re Japanese or perhaps a weaboo? Is the fact that how it operates? Basically’m unnaturally biased due to my background then you’re too.
Yes I know that i’m biased, but that’s why I’m making a genuine effort to achieve to you.
I’m Japanese. You’re Korean. Our speculations and our bias that comprise our perceptions of reality might be different(for anybody), but I have faith that we’re truly not too different.
It’s human instinct to become biased, but to get out of that we have to converse, debate, and voice our speculations.
We have to try and listen and understand one another.
It might not take place in this generation or even the next, but when both of us try and achieve out, you never know.
In either case I’ll continue trying.
As the netouyo are extremely strong around the Japanese internet generally whenever Korea is slighted related, I additionally observed individuals trolls mocking Japan at each chance, esp on 2ch. You can observe similar trolls around the Korean internet, too. Lots of them esp on Ilbe. They’re going on about inferior kimchis. Honestly, it’s quite amusing when it’s ruthlessly self-depreciative. xD
All individuals reasons are F*** stupid in my opinion.
When the dissertation is presented in British, I’m not amazed at all, copying is simpler. Her consultant probably didn’t bother to see her dissertation carefully, if in British. Common in Japanese graduate schools. Japanese univ encourage students to write in British yet professors are simply incompetent at studying and editing British dissertations.
Irrrve never loved her. You ought to have seen the hardons on my small office when her breakthrough was announced. I figured: whether it’s that easy, why haven’t the geniuses in super costly labs all over the world considered it before? I discovered the “benevolent mistakes” statement very arrogant and insulting. This happened because MISS Obokata was too positive about the ripened sweetness of her snatch. It’s actually cloying, or as it is called within my country, “chai pum-pum” Stop screwing people from other countries in Kobe free of charge Haruko. Please remove this lady’s PhD and replace that mic having a large dildo. She was doing self promotion porn for science knowing she would be a fraud now it’s time for you to show another helpful holes.
Incidentally Ms Obokata used a significant amount of Chanel highlighting base on her behalf upper oral cavity area. An expert job but makes her look fake. There’s this type of factor as an excessive amount of Chanel.
