yesNew Research Finds Children in Homosexual-led Households Have More Emotional Problems than Kids with a Mom and Dad: A new study published in the V6-Issue 10 of 2015 issue of the British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research (V6: Issue 10; 987-998) (DOI : 10.9734/BJMMR/2015/15897) appears to be the largest yet on the matter of same-sex households and children’s emotional outcomes. It analyzed 512 children of same-sex parents, drawn from a pool of over 207,000 respondents who participated in the (US) National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) at some point between 1997 and 2013.

Results reveal that, on eight out of twelve psychometric measures, the risk of clinical emotional problems, developmental problems, or use of mental health treatment services is nearly double among those with same-sex parents when contrasted with children of opposite-sex parents. The estimate of serious child emotional problems in children with same-sex parents is 17 percent, compared with 7 percent among opposite-sex parents, after adjusting for age, race, gender, and parent’s education and income. Rates of ADHD were higher as well—15.5 compared to 7.1 percent. The same is true for learning disabilities: 14.1 vs. 8 percent.

yesThe Guardian highlighted a recent research, published in British Journal of Medicine & Medical Research: "Velvet bean boosts blood levels, fertility in women". Before now, Velvet bean (Agbala or Agbaloko in Ibo and Werepe in Yoruba) was popularly known for its ability to boost testosterone and sperm levels in men, stop snake venom, and reduce blood sugar and fats. But recent studies by researchers have confirmed that the leaves and seeds could be effectively used to boost blood levels and fertility in women. The study published in British Journal of Medicine & Medical Research and titled “Fertility Enhancing Potential of Mucuna pruriens Seeds in Female Sprague-Dawley Rats.” (doi: https://dx.doi.org/10.9734/BJMMR/2014/8070) (British Journal of Medicine & Medical Research;6/1/2014, Vol. 4 Issue 16, p3148)

yesAs per a recent report (Link) of Science journal (present Impact factor 31), one of our journal (British Journal of Pharmaceutical Research) passed a stringent test of quality of Peer review by rejecting a fake article (Link1, Link2, Link3). We applaud the dedication and hard-work of our peer reviewers and editors to maintain the high standard of our journals. It was reported that out of total 304 journals, only 20 journals rejected the fake article after substantial peer review. We are happy that our journal was among these few successful journals along with industry leaders like PLoS One, Hindawi, etc. We believe that the result of this experiment also proved the efficacy of our Advanced OPEN peer review and ‘post publication’ peer review system. Though the report is debated, as it did not include subscription journals, we normally support any effort to improve the quality and transparency of peer review.
