Should Research be Trusted? Transparency, Accuracy and Accountability in the Publication Process
We want to trust peer-reviewed research as a reliable and trustworthy source of information for our work. However, weak oversight, negligence, and even outright fraud lead to the publication of misleading and erroneous research. Hear Ivan Oransky, Co-Founder of Retraction Watch, discuss these issues and discuss how we can combat them.

The scientific process is the basis upon which many of our ideas are constructed, formulated, tested, published, and reviewed. However, many studies are published that are later shown to be factually incorrect or contain errors. Ivan will discuss how the speed and openness of these retractions serve as a litmus test for how well we can implement the scientific process and how we should understand the veracity of science.
