Tracking retractions as a window into the scientific process

Retraction number five for management professor Ulrich Lichtenthaler

with 2 comments

The retraction count for management professor Ulrich Lichtenthaler, whose work has been subject to scrutiny for statistical irregularities, is up to five. Here’s the notice for “Product business, foreign direct investment, and licensing: Examining their relationships in international technology exploitation,” in the Journal of World Business:

This article has been retracted: please see Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/withdrawalpolicy).

This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief and Author.

After discussions between the Editors-in-Chief and the authors, it has been decided that this paper should be retracted due to errors in the results tables, specifically the regression coefficients and standard errors do not fit with the significance levels of some variables in a few models in the paper. The author notified the Editors-in-Chief of these errors on the 5th of June 2012.

The paper has been cited just once, according to Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge.
