Why can’t scientific journals be honest about how much gets through peer-review that shouldn’t? Why are some papers retracted following negative publicity on social media but other papers with demonstrably bad science remain untouched? Can valuing and promoting viewpoint diversity help correct the scientific record?
This insightful and excellent conversation dives into the question of why journals are reluctant to retract flawed papers/outputs from compromised science. The 1:02 discussion is a useful watch for research office and library staff, Research Integrity Advisers and people involved in the investigation of alleged research misconduct. Publishers have a clear conflicts of interest here. The citation of papers that should have been retracted does real damage. This situation must not be tolerated!
