This volume contains a duplicated paper by RW SMITH, MAHI SAHOO- ET AL ( QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY and CANMET) entitled: IMPROVED MELT CONDITIONING AND FILTRATION TO IMPROVE FEEDING DISTANCE AND QUALITY OF MANGANESE BRONZE SAND CASTINGS (20020642)
Transactions of the American Foundry Society V 110 Paper No 02-110 P 515-524, 2002 (10 p)
RW SMITH et al published the above paper seven (7) years earlier (!!) in Proceedings of the Copper 95--Cobre 95 International Conference, Santiago, Nov. 26-29, 1995 (1995), 1, 477-490) under a different title: Molten metal filtration to improve feeding distance and quality of manganese bronze sand castings.
By examining the two papers, the reader will note that the entire paper published by the American Foundry Society has been copied from Copper 95 that was published 7 years earlier!
The reader will note that title has been artfully altered to give the impression that the AFS paper is a new contribution to Science and Engineering. As such, this duplication is misleading and represents a severe abuse of the publishing system.
