2021 Annual Meeting Session | A Cross-Industry Discussion on Retracted Research: Connecting the Dots for Shared Responsibility

Issues around capturing, acknowledging, classifying, and tracking retracted research are shared by academic institutions, publishing organizations, and the technology providers who support them. This cross-industry panel shares findings from a Sloan-funded agenda-setting project, "Reducing the Inadvertent Spread of Retracted Science." It highlights the need for cross-industry education to destigmatize the process of retracting articles and to manage the impacts of retraction. Key takeaways include the importance of making retraction information easy to find and use, and the need for optimized retraction processes. Each panelist will describe what their organization/community is doing to create consistency around management of retracted research, and address problems and opportunities related to retraction discoverability, including avenues for making retraction metadata easy to find and share. We will highlight concrete examples of emerging cross-industry collaborations, such as a shared retraction taxonomy currently under development. Panelists will share resources for educating authors, editors, and other stakeholders about the importance of retraction, ideas for emerging cross-industry collaborations, and suggestions for implementation strategies in various institutional contexts and workflows. || Speakers: Annette Flanagin, Hannah Heckner, Deborah Poff, Jodi Schneider, John Seguin

43rd Annual Meeting (2021)

Without dwelling on the tumultuous events of the past year, our 43rd Annual Meeting aimed to recognize their impact, igniting—and sometimes forcing—innovation to meet changing demands. We explored the many new paths that materialize if we are willing to embrace the unexpected. What new insights and strategies have been discovered and implemented? What are the possibilities that have yet to be realized? As we move from reacting to adapting, how will our responses change the future of scholarly communications? And how should our responsibility to the larger academic ecosystem during this extraordinary time shape those responses? If you missed the SSP Annual Meeting, you can purchase individual keynote, plenary, and educational sessions on demand in the SSP OnDemand Video Content Library. You can also purchase an All Access Pass to the content on the Pathable platform through November 1.
