Scientific Publishing’s Wild West: Retractions, Post-Publication Peer Review, and Fraud

60 Minute Free Webcast

Session Description:

Ivan Oransky and Adam Marcus founded Retraction Watch in 2010. Unbeknownst to them, retractions had grown ten-fold in the previous decade.
 
Oransky will discuss the reasons for that increase, whether fraud is on the rise, the growth of post-publication peer review, and other trends he and Marcus have seen as they've built a site that is now viewed by 150,000 people per month, and funded by philanthropies including the MacArthur Foundation.
 
This webcast will be recorded. Participants of the live session will receive a certificate of participation.
