The project team will host an online workshop to bring together diverse stakeholders to develop a series of research-informed outcomes (scientific workshops, policies, and industry tools) to reduce the citation and reuse of retracted publications. We’re setting the workshop agenda based on interviews with stakeholders in the scientific publishing ecosystem, short discussion pieces stakeholders share, an ongoing literature review of research about retraction, and an ongoing citation analysis of retracted papers. All these pre-workshop activities will seed the workshop themes and promote dynamic discussions that lead to an actionable agenda.
We welcome stakeholders to contribute in any and all of the following ways:
Following the stakeholder workshop, PI Schneider will develop a consensus white paper with a coherent, actionable set of recommendations for next steps and disseminate the recommendations at select conferences. The goal is that these recommendations will lead to tangible plans for implementing next steps, in cooperation with industry partners within scientific publishing as well as government policymakers and academic institutions.
