The week at Retraction Watch featured:

Our list of retracted or withdrawn COVID-19 papers is up to 268. There are more than 36,000 retractions in our database — which powers retraction alerts in EndNoteLibKeyPapers, and Zotero.

Here’s what was happening elsewhere (some of these items may be paywalled, metered access, or require free registration to read):

  1. The article that was deleted due to threats of legal action by Dr. William Powers can also be accessed by anyone at:
    https://archive.ph/VBrHk

    The article can also be accessed if by creating an account at:
    https://www.are.na/block/12524458

    I’m guessing that any threats of legal action by Dr. Powers against the owners of these sites (in the Philippines and Namibia) will not be taken seriously.
