讲座摘要:

Continued use of retracted articles amplifies adverse consequences of publishing flawed knowledge. Despite previous calling for more effective means to prevent the invalid use of literature, little is known about the role of social media in reducing post-retraction citations of retracted articles. By leveraging retraction related posts made on Retraction Watch (RW), we conducted a natural experiment to examine the effects of social media reporting on alleviating continued use of retracted articles. We found that social media reporting significantly reduced post-retracted citations of non-swiftly retracted articles in the first two years after retraction. The effects were significant for articles written by either renowned authors or non-renowned authors, published in high-impact journals, not retracted by author(s), and retracted due to research misconduct, plagiarism or duplicate publication. Based on these findings, we suggest social media effectively reduced post-retraction citations when traditional methods were inadequate to prevent the future use of invalid literature. As an initial attempt to examine the effects of social media in academia, this study provides novel insights into the intersection between social media and the scientific community. It has significant implications on how and under what circumstances the scientific community can leverage social media to alleviate the propagation of flawed knowledge. It also offers suggestions to practitioners on what types of retracted articles should be given a high priority to be reported on social media.
