Corrections and retractions in academia


Zjacic, Nicolina (2023). Corrections and retractions in academia. www.factsandreasons.com: Facts and Reasons.

Abstract

Summary:
- Scientists can correct and retract their work for a variety of sound reasons, not just due to scientific misconduct.
- There is enormous stigma associated with changing published literature.
- This is exacerbated by whistle-blower bullying, inefficient bureaucracy, and a general lack of incentive from scientific institutions and journals.
- However, correction is a normal part of the scientific process rather than the exception.
