Just a quick update to the previous post. At the helpful suggestion of Steve Royle, I’ve added a new section to the report which attempts to normalise retractions by journal. So for example, J. Biol. Chem. has (as of now) 94 retracted articles and in total 170 842 publications indexed in PubMed. That becomes (100 000 / 170 842) * 94 = 55.022 retractions per 100 000 articles.

Top 20 journals, retracted articles per 100 000 publications

This leads to some startling changes to the journals “top 20″ list. If you’re wondering what’s going on in the world of anaesthesiology, look no further (thanks again to Steve for the reminder).

  1. Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work? I’m brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!
