University of Queensland investigation leads to third retraction
In September, Bruce Murdoch and Caroline Barwood had a paper in the European Journal of Neurology retracted. Earlier this month, the same happened to a paper in Aphasiology.
The retraction announced by the university today is for a 2013 paper in the International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology.
Here’s the notice, which is brief and behind a paywall:
Due to an issue regarding authorship and intellectual property, the publisher and authors agree to retract this paper.
UQ said a reader alert would also appear:
Murdoch, B. E., & Barwood, C. H. S. (2013). Non-invasive brain stimulation: A new frontier in the treatment of neurogenic speech-language disorders. International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, 15(3), 234-244. doi: 10.3109/17549507.2012.745605 http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/17549507.2012.745605
The following article cited within Murdoch and Barwood (2013) has been retracted.
Murdoch, B. E., Ng, M. L., & Barwood, C. H. S. (2012). Treatment of articulatory dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. European Journal of Neurology, 19, 340–347.
Murdoch and Barwood (2012) was retracted by agreement between the University of Queensland, the journal Editor in Chief, Professor Anthony Schapira, and John Wiley & Sons Ltd. The retraction was the outcome of a formal investigation by the University of Queensland, which established that: no primary data can be located; and no evidence has been found that the study described in the article was conducted. The University of Queensland requested that the paper be retracted.
The paper has been cited just once, according to Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge.
