Often enough authors do not include some necessary citations into their papers as a result of an honest mistake. Mistakes such as these are inevitable. They do not necessarily portray the authors in a negative light. On the contrary, if an author has corrected the mistake by adding a post-publication citation, they have demonstrated the highest standard of scientific ethics.
Unfortunately, there are few authors who intentionally violate scientific ethics. The scientific community should know who they are. Therefore, we have created a Non-Citators List. There are two situations in which an authors’s name may be placed on this list:
We hope, the Non-Citators List will remain empty forever.
The Non-Citators List is a patent-pending invention of ScientificCitations.org; and, it may not be used by others without written permission of the company.
