Ulrich Lichtenthaler now up to 12 retractions

industrial corp changeIndustrial and Corporate Change is the site of management professor Ulrich Lichtenthaler’s 12th retraction.

Here’s the notice for “Outward knowledge transfer: the impact of project-based organization on performance,” originally published in 2010:

This article has been retracted by the journal’s Editors, Oxford University Press, and the author. The article has been retracted because of statistical irregularities and because of incomplete citation to other work by the author. The retraction follows an investigation by the Editors, during the course of which the author proactively contacted the Editors concerning the statistical irregularities.

The paper has been cited once, by a book about strategic management, according to Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge.

The Otto Beisheim School of Management, also known as the WHU, said last week it expected its investigation into Lichtenthaler’s work to be complete by the end of June, according to the Open Innovation blog, which reported the new retraction Tuesday.

  1. Hey, wasn’t Lichtenthaler’s university supposed to conclude and report the results of an investigation on him no later than June 2013? Whatever happened to that?? All I hear are crickets…
