Joerg Seibold, Christian Schwentner, David Schilling, Aristotelis Anastasiadis, Daniela Colleselli, Arnulf Stenzl, Christoph Antwerpen, Stefan Corvin
Laparoscopic pyeloplasty has been proven to be an effective and minimally-invasive technique in the treatment of ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction. However, only case-reports are available about the use of this technique in patients with duplicated collecting systems.

INFLAMMATORY MYOFIBROBLASTIC TUMOR OF THE KIDNEY: A CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE
Rosely de los Santos, Devendar Katkoori, Merce Jorda, Murugesan Manoharan
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an uncommon tumor believed to be benign and can arise in various organs. We report a case of renal IMT in a 7-year lady with right upper quadrant abdominal pain. Computerized tomography showed a .5 cm upper pole renal mass, consistent with a renal cell carcinoma. Subsequently a laparoscopic right radical nephrectomy was performed. Pathology revealed an unusual lesion consisting of spindle cells having prominent nucleoli, with plasma cells and lymphocytes throughout the lesion

Idiopathic Scrotal, Penile and Perineum Elephantiasis - Successful Surgical Treatment. Case Report
Andrzej Paradysz, Grzegorz Prokopowicz, Małgorzata Pindycka-Piaszczyńska, Piotr Bryniarski, Marcin Życzkowski
Scrotal elephantiasis is both emotionally distressing and physically disabling, caused by chronic lymphoedema created by obstruction, aplasia or hypoplasia of lymphatic vessels. We present a case of the patient with massive scrotal, penile and perineum elephantiasis of unexplained reason and discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic approach. The patient underwent four-stage repair: subtotal scrotectomy saving penis, testes and spermatic cords followed by scrotal and penile reconstruction with adequate cosmetic and functional outcome.

Scientific integrity also concerns editors and publishers

Recently, there have been many dishonest propositions from scientific publishing houses and publishers. Authors receive offers to publish articles in journals of questionable reputability and often an unfairly created image which portrays a resemblance of a journal with high standards possessing an Impact Factor, generated by Clarivate Analytics (previously Thomson Reuters).

Many trademarks imitating the "original" Impact Factor have appeared. These trademarks entice authors to publish articles in journals which do not appear in the Science Citation Index Expanded database, managed by Clarivate Analytics. These journals of course have their own unique impact factors, but they are not indexed by Clarivate Analytics. Authors publish their articles in these journals only to later find out that they will not be indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded database. Often, these articles cannot be then withdrawn because after an article is assigned a DOI number, it cannot be published in another journal as this would be considered plagiarism. Subsequently, these journals may demand up to a few thousand dollars from authors in order to withdraw their articles.

Why am I writing about this? I am writing about this because I think that editors and publishers must be honest and present credible offers to authors. In my opinion, impact factors that are not the result of parameters calculated by Clarivate Analytics should not be used, even if they are trademarks. In scientific research, the concept of an "Impact Factor" has existed for too long for it to be used by other institutions, even if it is calculated fairly and called an "unofficial impact factor". This is simply a case of scientific integrity.

The SCOPUS database has come up with a very good solution to this problem by naming their impact factor "CiteScore". This is a fair approach to authors by publishers.

As editors and publishers, we must also have an honest approach to scientific research.

Dear authors, please look out for journals which advertise various new impact factors. Before you submit your articles to a journal, make sure to check first in which database it is indexed.


With kind regards,
Tomasz Drewa
Editor-in-Chief

Corrigendum
The Editorial Office would like to inform all interested parties that in Central European Journal of Urology an article entitled "Efficacy of holmium laser urethrotomy and intralesional injection of Santosh PGI tetra-inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, Hyaluronidase and N-acetyl cysteine) on the outcome of urethral strictures" [Kumar S, Kishore L, Sharma AP, Garg N, Singh SK. Cent European J Urol. 2015; 68: 462-465] was published which is very similar to the article entitled "Efficacy of Optical Internal Urethrotomy and Intralesional Injection of Vatsala-Santosh PGI Tri-Inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, and Hyaluronidase) in the Treatment of Anterior Urethral Stricture" published in Advances in Urology [Kumar S, Garg N, Singh SK, Mandal AK. Adv Urol. 2014; 2014: 192710. doi: 10.1155/2014/192710. Epub 2014 Oct 1].

The authors of these articles did not inform the CEJU Editorial Office about the prior publication of an article with a similar subject matter nor did they refer to it in their References section.

The Editorial Office regrets the existing situation.
