The publisher has requested that the article “Rebamipide plus proton pump inhibitor versus proton pump inhibitor alone in treatment of endoscopic submucosal dissection-induced gastric ulcer: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials”1 be retracted. A review, based on which the editorial decision had been made, was found to be falsified. Using a fictitious account, a review was submitted under the name of a known scientist without their knowledge. Consequently, the Editor supervising the review process was misled into accepting the paper based upon a review he assumed was performed by a well-known expert in the field. This represents a violation of the peer-review process and publishing ethics standards.
