Expression of Concern: Nanocrystalline NixCo(0.5 − x)Zn0.5Fe2O4 ferrites: fabrication through coprecipitation route with enhanced structural, magnetic and photocatalytic activity

The Original Article was published on 06 February 2018

The Editor-in-Chief is issuing an editorial expression of concern regarding the article [1]. While the article presents novel information regarding the effects of Ni compositional variation in the photocatalytic activity of spinel ferrites, the Editor-in-Chief is concerned regarding the amount of overlap with [2,3,4,5]. None of the authors have responded to any correspondence from the editor or publisher about this overlap or the Editorial Expression of Concern.
