Research and Ethics in Publishing

Research and Ethics in Publishing has an active new watchdog in Retraction Watch,  an organization dedicated to encouraging a public discussion on ethics in science journal publications.  Say the authors, “We’re interested in whether journals are consistent. How long do they wait before printing a retraction? What kind of scientific misconduct requires one? How much of a public announcement, if any, do they make? Does a journal with a low rate of retractions have a better peer review and editing process, or is it just sweeping more mistakes under the rug?”
