Newswise — Washington D.C. — Accuracy in science is in everyone’s interest, and the integrity of the scientific record is fundamental to future enquiry and research investments. But how do we proceed when the record is in doubt? When are retractions and corrections warranted in science?
With the heightened visibility of retracted publications during the COVID-19 pandemic there is an opportunity for dialogue on how and why papers are retracted, why this process can be challenging and ethically-fraught, and how the scientific corrections process can be improved.
On November 13th, ILSI North America is hosting a webinar featuring Marcia McNutt (National Academy of Sciences), David Allison (Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington) and Wallace Hayes (University of South Florida College of Public Health and Michigan State University Center for Integrative Toxicology). The panel will discuss some of the challenges that exist when attempts are made to correct the scientific record through retractions, corrections, letters or commentaries. In a discussion facilitated by Johanna Dwyer (Tufts Medical Center), we will highlight opportunities for the scientific community and journals to improve the corrections process.
