Science is Self-Correcting but the Record is Not
Washington DC, USA
November 13, 2020
1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

With the heightened visibility of retracted publications during the COVID-19 pandemic there is opportunity for a dialogue on how and why papers are retracted, why this process can be challenging and ethically-fraught, and how scientific corrections can be improved. In this webinar, invited experts will discuss 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. In a facilitated discussion, we will highlight opportunities for the scientific community and journals to improve the corrections process.
