Ivan Oransky M.D., Ivan Oransky and Adam Marcus founded Retraction Watch in 2010. Unbeknownst to them, retractions had grown ten-fold in the previous decade. In the Public Seminar, Oransky will discuss the reasons for that increase, whether fraud is on the rise, the growth of postpublication 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 has been funded by the MacArthur and Arnold Foundations, and the Helmsley Trust.

This conference builds on a recent report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine: Fostering Integrity in Research. That report finds that “the research enterprise faces new and complex challenges in fostering integrity and in dealing with the consequences of research misconduct and detrimental research practices.”
