The Toxicology Forum—2021 Virtual Summer Meeting
Virtual, Event
July 30, 2021
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

In November, the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS) organized a webinar titled “Science Is Self-Correcting — but the Record Is Not. Opportunities for Improvement for Journals and Scientists.” In this webinar, invited experts discussed some of the challenges that exist for scientists and journals when attempts are made to correct the scientific record through retractions, corrections, or letters/commentaries, and highlighted opportunities for the scientific community and journals to improve the corrections process.

In this follow-up session, three new speakers will join two experts who engaged in the “Science Is Self-Correcting” webinar to expand upon these discussions by exploring how we can build self-correction into the scientific enterprise as a whole. Following these remarks, the speakers will engage with attendees in discussions on how we can achieve an enterprise-wide approach to self-correction that is built into the design of science. This session is jointly organized by IAFNS and The Toxicology Forum.

To facilitate conversation between the invited experts and meeting attendees, a video recording of IAFNS’s webinar “Science Is Self-Correcting — But the Record Is Not” is available online for public viewing.
