another is expedience Universities and journals are often slow to retract a paper waiting for the outcome of lengthy investigations Journals sometimes add an "editorial expression of concern" to a paper in the meantime But such notes can be stigmatizing too and if it’s clear the data are wrong some argue it’s better to pull a paper and report the causes later Some journals want more options for a troubled paper than either a correction for minor errors or a wholesale retraction The EMBO Journal headquartered in Heidelberg Germany has introduced the "partial retraction" for cases when say one figure is erroneous but the conclusions of a paper stand "With a full retraction you take a down a whole chunk from the scientific literature" says Editor-in-Chief Bernd Pulverer JAMA Psychiatry in 2015 introduced the concept of "retracting and replacing" for a paper about a clinical trial that had pervasive errors but once corrected was still worth publishing Editors at The Lancet and The Lancet Respiratory Medicine have instituted "retraction and republication" But with a sharp rise in retractions over the past 15 years—to 664 in fiscal year 2016 according to the database MEDLINE—some feel a more comprehensive approach is in order At a workshop at Stanford University’s Meta-Research Innovation Center (METRICS) in Palo Alto California last December a group of journal editors and other experts devised a more granular system for both corrections and retractions that has 14 solutions for different situations Retractions would remain for misconduct says Pulverer who attended the workshop But five other terms would cover papers withdrawn for other reasons METRICS researcher Daniele Fanelli told the meeting last week (see list below) For example honest mistakes like Mann’s would now come under the moniker "self-retraction" (An article describing the taxonomy is under review and Fanelli stresses that it’s likely to change) It’s not a retraction it’s a … A paper currently under review proposes alternatives to the word retraction when no misconduct is involved WITHDRAWAL Peer-reviewed paper in which authors retract one or more previous publications based on new evidence data methodologies results or theoretical arguments that invalidate their claims RETIRED When a guideline or recommendation article is outdated and its authors are unable to update it CANCELED A full retraction due to an editorial production or publishing mistake; not the authors’ fault SELF-RETRACTION A short retraction notice signed by all co-authors of the original paper after they have made a joint unsolicited retraction request to the journal REMOVAL Rare case where a paper is entirely removed from the public record because its content presents a serious and substantial risk to society individuals or the environment But the complexity of Fanelli’s plan could create confusion says Virginia Barbour of the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane Australia Barbour is a member of a working group of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) that posted a simpler plan on bioRxiv in March that would simply retire the word "retraction" Instead the group introduced neutral-sounding "amendments" which would come in three categories—insubstantial substantial or wholesale—covering anything from a typographical error to made-up data Amendments could be made even before misconduct investigations finish "That proposal goes a bit too far in my view" says Pulverer who thinks the word retraction sends a clear signal in cases of misconduct Leonid Schneider a former stem cell scientist who now blogs about scientific integrity from Erlensee Germany castigated the COPE group for making life easier for editors who would no longer have to worry whether a paper involved misconduct or not "Too many journal editors would sure prefer to hang some amendment note [on] a paper and be done with it" Lowering the bar for authors to "amend" papers could also allow fraudsters to clean up before they get caught says Ana Marui of the University of Split School of Medicine in Croatia one of three editors-in-chief at the Journal of Global Health "You can imagine a situation where before I am officially accused of misconduct I will make a correction" she says But a journal’s primary responsibility is keeping the literature accurate—not finding or punishing those who engage in misconduct says Elizabeth Moylan a senior editor for scientific integrity at BioMed Central in London and a member of the COPE working group "That’s for institutions" Moylan says Pulverer recommends that journals experiment with the various categories in the two proposals "Hopefully a consensus will crystallize" he says In the meantime the retraction will stay For those who do have to retract a paper because of an honest mistake a few studies offer encouragement: They suggest that such retractions aren’t so bad for one’s career That was certainly Mann’s experience: His supervisor was supportive colleagues complimented him on owning his error and after shelling out another $2500 in article processing fees he published a new paper with the same title in the same journal "The community didn’t scorn me" he saysWritten by Express News Service | Chandigarh | Published: January 29 2010 2:51 am Related News Complainants say no objection to closure report filed by CBI The infamous wireless scam in which the names of Punjabs top police officers had cropped upseems to be heading for a burial as the complainants filed a no objection certificate to the closure report filed by CBI in the case today The case is listed for hearing before CBI Special Judge Darshan Singh on February 25when the fate of the case will be sealed Sources said while recording their statements in the court todaythe complainantsadvocate Ashok Chaudhary and R K Kwatramembers of social organisation Lawyers Initiativesaid the PIL was based on media reports and they had no objection to the closure report filed by the investigating agency The multi-crore scam had made headlines in 2006when the CBI registered a case against police officersaccusing them of embezzlement of crores of rupees over a period of three years (2000 to 2003) in connivance with wireless suppliers The Punjab and Haryana High Court had handed over the case to the CBI on May 302006directing it to probe the Rs 525-crore scam on a PIL filed by the two lawyers alleging largescale irregularities The CBI in the FIR had named the then DGP-cum-commandant (Punjab Homeguards) K K AttriADGP (Vigilance) Izhar AlamIG (Crime) G D PandeyDIG (Intelligence) R P Singh and SP (Lokpal) Malvinder Singh Sidhu besides former ADGP D R Bhattiformer ADGP S C Jain and IG R C Prasad They were booked under the Prevention of Corruption Act For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Related News According to the Crime Branch,defence lawyer for one of the accused, And a nice way to inspire and encourage young readers… Get home building tips,” The High Court judgement had raised a question mark onwho killed Pandya, on Sunday warned the people against being lured by the “double laddoo” offer of a Modi-Mamata combination in the Lok Sabha polls.

internationally comparable carbon footprints for four cities including Delhi (File Photo) Related News Cities can cut greenhouse gas emissions far beyond their urban borders according to a study that calculated the first internationally comparable carbon footprints for four cities including Delhi Greenhouse gas emissions caused by urban households’ purchases of goods and services from beyond city limits are much bigger than previously thought according to researchers at Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany These upstream emissions may occur anywhere in the world and are roughly equal in size to the total emissions originating from a city’s own territory they said The study offers local policy-makers more leverage to tackle climate change in view of the UN climate summit COP23 researchers said They calculated the first internationally comparable greenhouse gas footprints for four cities from developed and developing countries: Berlin New York Mexico City and Delhi Contrary to the common belief consumer goods like computers or sneakers that people buy are not most relevant but housing and transport – sectors that cities can substantially govern “It turns out that the same activities that cause most local emissions of urban households – housing and transport – are also responsible for the majority of upstream emissions elsewhere along the supply chain” said Peter-Paul Pichler from PIK “People often think that mayors cannot do much about climate change since their power is restricted to city limits but their actions can have far-reaching impacts” said Pichler lead-author of the study While the greenhouse gas footprint in the four cities that the scientists scrutinised range from 19 tonnes in Delhi to 106 tonnes in New York of CO2 equivalent per person and year the proportions of local to upstream household emissions as well as the relative climate relevance of housing and transport turn out to be roughly the same The international reach of upstream emissions is vast but varies In terms of emissions Berlin’s global hinterland is largest with more than half of its upstream emissions occurring outside of Germany mostly in Russia China and across the European Union researchers said Around 20 per cent of Mexico City’s considerably smaller upstream emissions occur outside Mexico mainly in the US and China they said For all the latest
