  • Call for Papers: Retractions and their Discontents

    Retractions of scientific articles have been increasing steadily over the past 20 years. Articles are retracted, either by the journal that published them or by the authors themselves, because of major scientific flaws (sometimes, but not always, due to misconduct), but also on occasion when they have come under intense scrutiny because their conclusions are socially or politically controversial. With this special issue of Current Psychology, we hope to stimulate discussion of all aspects of the "unpublication" of scientific articles.

    Guest Editors: Christopher J. Ferguson, Nicholas Brown
