Expression of Concern: Influence of iron doping on the photocatalytic activity of nanocrystalline TiO2 particles fabricated by ultrasound method for enhanced degradation of organic dye

The Original Article was published on 17 January 2018

The Editor-in-Chief is issuing an editorial expression of concern regarding the article [1]. While the article presents novel information regarding the influence of iron doping on photocatalytic behavior of the studied particles, the Editor-in-Chief is concerned regarding the amount of overlap with [2, 3]. None of the authors have responded to any correspondence from the editor or publisher about this overlap or the Editorial Expression of Concern.
