Who knew?!

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.
