,. Retraction: Role of casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate in remineralization of white spot lesions and inhibition of Streptococcus mutans?. J Conserv Dent [serial online] 2016 [cited 2019 Aug 19];19:198. Available from: http://www.jcd.org.in/text.asp?2016/19/2/198/178710
The Journal of Conservative Dentistry has decided to retract the article titled, "Role of casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate in remineralization of white spot lesions and inhibition of Streptococcus mutans?" authored by Vashisht R, Indira R, Ramachandran S, Kumar A, and Srinivasan MR, published in pages 342-346, issue 4, vol. 16 of the Journal of Conservative Dentistry. [1] Based on the complaint from the editorial office of International Journal of Pediatric Dentistry, it was found that the article is a verbatim copy of an article titled, "Does casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate provide remineralization on white spot lesions and inhibition of Streptococcus mutans?" authored by Aykut-Yetkiner A, Kara N, Ateώ M, Ersin N, and Ertuπrul F and published in pages 302-306, issue 4, vol. 38 of Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry.[2]

After a thorough investigation, it is evident that the first author (Dr Ruchi Vashisht) of the concerned article, [1] was a reviewer of an article [2] by Aykut-Yetkiner et al. that was initially submitted to Int J Paed Dent. This article [2] was rejected by the reviewer(s) in 2012. Dr Ruchi Vashisht later submitted this same article to J Conserv Dent along with a set of coauthors. This article was peer reviewed and was published in our journal in 2013. [1] The original authors (Aykut-Yetkiner et al.) had submitted their manuscript to another journal and got it published in 2014. [2]

The article [1] published in J Conserv Dent has breached the rules of research and publication ethics and constitutes gross research misconduct. The coauthors of this article [1] claim innocence and to be unaware of this. The first author is neither communicating to the journals concerned nor to the coauthors. Therefore, on grounds of research misconduct the article [1] in concern is being retracted.
