The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article [1], which was published as part of special issue “Multi-source Weak Data Management using Big Data”, because it shows substantial text overlap, most notably with the article cited [2]. In addition, there is evidence suggesting authorship manipulation and an attempt to subvert the peer review process. The authors have not responded to correspondence about this retraction.
