Why Has the Number of Scientific Retractions Increased?

3

This 2013 paper considers the dramatic rise in the rate of retraction for published scientific research since the 1990s. The authors conclude, “The increase in retracted articles appears to reflect changes in the behavior of both authors and institutions.” They list a variety of possible factors for the increase, including a widening scope of reasons for retraction (such as plagiarism and duplicate publication), an increase in the number and proportion of retractions by authors with a single retraction, and greater scrutiny of high-profile publications.

We probably need less studies, more quality.

I think the greater question is why this article is based on a study from 2013? Surely there is more current research. I'm interested in the topic, but how hard would it be to look at more current data? (Wakefield and the bogus MMR vaccine link is one contributing factor, I would guess).

It was a beautiful rest day, so took a quick 2 mile hike with my kids. Some of those hills got me though! 🤷🏻‍♀️

The Human Condition appears to include a GHD, a med/slam ball, and a pull-up bar!

I wonder if the easy accessibility to publications has hastened the increase in scientific cretractions due to a higher and broader level of scrutiny spilling over to enforced accountability?
