The Top Journals in Science (for retractions)

September 27, 2011 Filed under Blog, Featured 

Roger Pielke Jr. reports on a Wall Street Journal article on the number of retractions published in scientific journals. The top three journals in the number of retractions (1900 to 2010)?

1. Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (57 retractions)
2. Science (54 retractions)
3. Nature (43 retractions)

Think about that the next time someone tells you what an honor it is to be published in one of those journals.
