Lab Partner: None

Scientific
Writing and Integrity

Procedure

1.     The
article Qualitative and Quantitative
Evaluation of Three Types of Student-Generated as Instructional Support in
Organic Chemistry Laboratories was a scientific study done to analyze the
impact of student-generated videos as a supplement to TA instruction in an
organic chemistry laboratory. Three videos, made by former lab students,
focused on the technique, instrumentation, and calculations of the specific
experiments. In this study, they observed six sections of the lab with three
randomly picked TA’s handling two sections each (Box et al., 166). Three of the sections were given the supplemental
videos with the TA instruction and three sections were not (Box et al., 166).  After the students finished their experiment,
the data from the videos, audio, and lab reports were collected and analyzed.
The article stated that in conclusion, “We found evidence that the use of
student-generated instructional videos in the organic chemistry laboratories
observed for this study had a positive impact on lab preparedness and learning
outcomes” (Box et al., 169).
Therefore, the supplemental videos were found effective in the lab scores of
the organic chemistry lab students.

4.     In
this scholarly article, they conduct an experiment to see if using copper-tin
as a collector for the graphite electrodes will reduce the amount of heat that
is given off by a lithium battery if overused. Lithium-ion batteries, with
graphite as the negative electrode, are very commonly used in our electronic
devices and our cars(Chae et al., 88).
The problem that arises, is when we overuse these devices, the graphite
lithiates and gives off immense amounts of heat (Chae et al., 89). Once the experiments were completed, they determined
whether their hypothesis was correct. In conclusion, they found that the
copper-tin did in fact help reduce the lithiation of graphite, and therefore
reduce the heat that was given off by the lithium battery (Chae et al., 90).

3.     Editors
at PLOS One discovered that one of their journals in their paper, “The Effect
of Social Stress on Chronic Pain Perception in Female and Male Mice”, was plagiarized
from 17 other journals. According to one of their spokespersons, the article had
contained information that was verbatim from the other journals or slightly modified
(Palus). They had many sources that they stole information from, for example, Glynn
et. al’s “Circulating Interleukin 6 and Interleukin 10 in Community Acquired
Pneumonia” (Glynn et. al). The journal was retracted, and the authors: Marjan
Aghajani or Tooba Ghazanfari from Shahed University in Tehran could not be
reached for more information (Palus).
