COPE, the publishers’ Trojan horse, calls to abolish retractions – For Better Science

lkfitz's bookmarks 2017-03-31


"Authors caught with manipulated or absent research data should under no circumstances be invited to replace it with something else, through an amendment. If a doctor who lied about ethics approvals or the outcome of the published medical intervention is permitted to “fix” all this with an amendment, actual human lives of real patients are at stake. Thus, if COPE and the publishers it represent get their will, there will be no retractions in the future."
