Does Science Self-Correct?  What We've Learned at Retraction Watch [Web Video; 58:56]   by Dr Ivan Orlansky, presented on Oct 8, 2020.

This is a recording of Dr. Ivan Oransky's inaugural talk in a new lecture series by the Leon Levy Dental Library at Penn Libraries. Hosted by Laurel Graham.

Liz Suelzer's presentation last year helped me understand the importance of retractions in scholarly communication and publishing.  Here's your chance to learn about / catch up on the work of Retraction Watch. 

Common Reasons for Retractions:

  • Duplication (Self-plagiarism) 
  • Plagiarism
  • Image Manipulation
  • Faked Data
  • Fake Peer Reviews
  • Publisher Error
  • Authorship Issues
  • Legal Reasons
  • Not Reproducible
  • Fraud - Misconduct - Reliability - Error - Misc

Did you know that Zotero offers retraction alerts?
