I’ve seen a recent journal paper that presents a solution to a problem, and it in the introduction it has a statement that the problem has not been solved yet.
That wouldn’t be very strange if I didn’t publish a paper with a solution a few years ago, which is not cited.
I understand that no one can be aware of all papers published so there can be honest omissions, but these authors were aware of my paper because we talked about it at a conference held before the submission of their paper.
Another case which I have noticed is that some papers avoid mentioning other related papers which present similar methods but perform better than theirs.
Is this considered as misconduct, and is there something one can do about it?
