• Retractions, Post-Publication Peer Review and Fraud: Scientific Publishing's Wild West

      Oransky, Ivan; Retraction Watch (University of Arizona Library (Tucson, AZ), 2016-10-27)
      Ivan Oransky and Adam Marcus founded Retraction Watch in 2010. Unbeknownst to them, retractions had grown ten-fold in the previous decade. Oransky will discuss the reasons for that increase, whether fraud is on the rise, the growth of post-publication peer review, and other trends he and Marcus have seen as they've built a site that is now viewed by 150,000 people per month, and funded by philanthropies including the MacArthur and Arnold Foundations.
