Did you know there’s a site that track retractions of scholarly papers? The latest report has a German professor losing her PhD over plagiarism. Ouch.
So, here’s your warning. Just because it was published in something high-brow and scholarly doesn’t necessarily make it good, true or worth reading. The site counts the number of retractions for any given person/entity as it reports the retraction. Yup, it’s a new amusement for me.
