Ulrich Lichtenthaler, the management professor who has had 13 papers retracted, has a correction in the Journal of Product Innovation Management.
Here’s the text of the correction for “The Role of Champions in the External Commercialization of Knowledge, ” which is followed by the corrected tables:
Originally published in Journal of Product Innovation Management, 26, 4 (Lichtenthaler and Ernst, 2009). Regrettably, there were some unintended errors in the originally published Tables 2 (page 380), 3 (page 381) and 4 (page 382). The tables below have been corrected and should be substituted for the published tables. JPIM apologizes for these errors.
The paper has been cited nine times, according to Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge.
The fact that only the JPIM is apologizing for the errors suggests that the publisher was responsible. After all, in one of the two Lichtenthaler retractions that have already appeared in the same journal, Lichtenthaler takes “sole responsibility.” And at many (but not all) publishers, errata, as distinguished from corrigenda, are reserved for publisher error.
We’ve asked the journal’s editor to clarify, and will update with anything we learn.
