Retraction 46 arrives for Diederik Stapel
Here’s the notice for “The effects of diffuse and distinct affect. ” by Diederik A. Stapel, Willem Koomen and Kirsten I. Ruys, which appeared in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology in 2002:
This retraction follows the results of an investigation into the work of Diederik A. Stapel. The Noort Committee has found evidence of fraud, leading to the conclusion that fraud is most likely in the data supplied by Diederik A. Stapel. His co-authors were unaware of his actions and were not involved in the collection of the likely fraudulent data.
The paper has been cited 68 times, according to Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge.
If you’re waiting (hoping?) for this litany of retractions to end, the reports of the Stapel investigations suggest 55 will be the final count.
