Fifth and final session on #ResearchIntegrity Brandon Stell on #PubPeer @FEBSnews
Stell: Scientists are not the only people whose work relies on accuracy of published work - also basis for current and future research, public policy, etc #ResearchMisconduct
Stell: cites the #Poldermans case and how flawed publication that made its way into guidelines led to 8000 deaths
Stell: also the, better known, #Wakefield case, anti-vax and the rise of measles cases #PublicHealth #FEBS2018
Stell: pressure to publish in "high impact" journals drive temptation to sweep problems under carpet, fuel issues with #Reproducibility
Stell: Difficult to achieve #Retraction - conflicts of interests for the original authors, the journal and the institution where work was conducted
Stell Aim of #Pubpeer is to bypass those #ConfictOfInterest hurdles, getting the necessary information out ASAP.
Stell: Most controversially #Pubpeer allows anonymous critique. There are safeguards, e.g. must be based on published material not rumour, comments moderated, facilities to report abuse, authors' right to reply, alert systems, etc
Stell: #Pubpeer also has community surveillance
Stell: just launched (yes,2 x e) A peeriodical is lightweight virtual journal with you as Editor-in-chief, giving you complete freedom in setting editorial policy to select the most interesting & useful manuscripts for your reader
Stell: also notes importance of @F1000Research @RetractionWatch and personal blogs in post-publication peer review and raising concerns about published work #PublicationEthics #ResearchIntegrity
Stell: there HAVE been abuses of the PubPeer system, but these have been dealt with robustly and quickly - belief nothing currently live. One legal challenge re anonymisation of reviews was launched
