Ever since we broke the news about the issues with the now-retracted Science paper about changing people’s minds on gay marriage, we’ve been the subject of a lot of press coverage, which has in turn led a number of people to ask us: Who has the most retractions?
Well, we’ve tried to answer that in our new Retraction Watch leaderboard.
Here is the current list (click here for more detailed information about our methodology and additional notes):
- Yoshitaka Fujii (total retractions: 183)
- Joachim Boldt (89)
- Peter Chen (60)
- Diederik Stapel (54)
- Shigeaki Kato (36)
- Hendrik Schön (36)
- Hyung-In Moon (35)
- Naoki Mori (32)
- Scott Reuben (22)
- John Darsee (17)
While this post will remain the same, the always-current version will be available here and in the right-hand column of our pages.
We also like to think of retractions as more than just notches to add up, and consider what we can learn from studying them – with the ultimate goal of improving the way we do science.
