The pixels were barely dry on our post reporting the 14th and 15th retractions for management professor Ulrich Lichtenthaler Friday by the time his 16th retraction appeared.

Here’s the notice for “The role of deliberate and experiential learning in developing capabilities: Insights from technology licensing,” a paper originally published in 2012 in the Journal of Engineering and Technology Management:

This article has been retracted: please see Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/withdrawalpolicy).

This article has been retracted by agreement between the first author (Ulrich Lichtenthaler), and the Editor-in-Chief. The retraction has been agreed based on discussions about the presentation of the empirical results following an investigation conducted by the Journal. The second author was not involved in the empirical analyses. The first author assumes full responsibility.

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

  1. “discussions about the presentation of the empirical results”.

    You might as well not write anything at all.

    1. Agreed. Other papers were retracted because they presented marginal effects as significant ( * ) while they were not when looking at the t-value. But I am not sure this alone justifies a retraction and I think this has not been the sole reason for the retraction of other papers. But it would be justified if the main result is based on wrong reporting of significance levels.
