Letter sent to Wiley. Scientific racism or mistake?
Good day Wiley staff,
I would like to point out inaccurate content in a journal article.
Article: Penile length-somatometric parameters relationship in healthy Egyptian males (DOI: 10.1111/and.12275)
Inaccurate content: “On the other hand, Fujieda & Matsuura (1987) reported mean value of stretched flaccid penile length of 9 cm (range 6.6–12.2 cm) in healthy adult Japanese.
Comment: Fujieda & Matsuura (1987) was a study of newborns to adolescents, not adults. The range 6.6-12.2 is also not found in that article. An erratum is requested.
As usual no reply to date.
UPDATE: See here
