From Cancer to COVID-19, Does Science Self-Correct?


Session Information

Rapid publication of results -- particularly on preprint servers -- has grown dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic, and has forced researchers, health care professionals, journalists -- and yes, librarians -- to grapple with the concept of reliable and actionable information. The pandemic has given rise to more than 80 retractions at the time of this writing. Is that cause for concern? My lens for this talk will be ten years of experience reporting on retractions for Retraction Watch, including creating the world’s most comprehensive database of retractions, with more than 23,000 and counting.
