Talk: What is the role of journals to strengthen research integrity?
As the guardians of the scientific record, editors have a clear responsibility for the validity of the content they publish. When unreliable data or errors are discovered in a published article, editors need to retract or correct the paper to maintain the accuracy of the scientific literature. I will give examples how this has changed over the recent years. But there is much more journals can do to strengthen research integrity by addressing the more common issue of questionable research. The Open Access era, while a laudable goal, can have unforeseen detrimental effects on research integrity that need to be addressed by the publishing community.
