My opinion of EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing continues to go lower.
Consider this “research article”: K Umapathy, B Ghoraani and S Krishnan, “Audio Signal Processing Using Time-Frequency Approaches: Coding, Classification, Fingerprinting, and Watermarking,” EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing 2010, 2010:451695 doi:10.1155/2010/451695.
ALL of the text from section 4.1.1 to 4.1.4 appears exactly the same in K. Umapathy, S. Krishnan, and S. Jimaa, “Multigroup classification of audio signals using time-frequency parameters,” IEEE Trans. Multimedia, vol. 7, pp. 308 – 315, Apr. 2005.
This is hardly the new and advanced type of work to which I thought this journal was aiming to give a platform.
I can’t find any text that says, “Portions of this article appear exactly in …” What happened to S. Jimaa that he is not on the “new” version? Does this Journal really permit such unacceptable scholarship?
