The Complexities of Retractions: Data Integrity, Discovery, and Tools

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Scholarly publications are retracted for a myriad of reasons, from minor human error to widespread data falsification. We will highlight examples of data horror stories that resulted in retractions and provide strategies that could have prevented these nightmare scenarios. This poster will also emphasize the discovery of retractions. In some cases, journals move swiftly to indicate that a publication has been retracted, and the platforms (e.g., PubMed, PsycINFO) are notified and then react by updating item records. Using a sample of 144 retracted papers in mental health, we explore how retractions are reflected across eight platforms. We discuss current and in-development tools that bring awareness to these issues. This poster will also summarize the current retraction climate, tools used to distinguish retractions, and identify stakeholders including the Center For Scientific Integrity (parent organization for Retraction Watch), the Center For Open Science, and the Committee on Publication Ethics.
