UKRIO Webinar: Correcting the scholarly record and dispelling myths around corrections

Wednesday, 20 September 2023 10.00 - 11.00am BST

A core part of publication ethics is the correction of published research affected by errors or misconduct.

This UKRIO webinar aims to explain both the process of fixing errors and misconceptions about corrections, focusing on journal articles, and to answer the questions:

  • Who decides what needs to be corrected?
  • What are the responsibilities of editors, journals, research institutions, and authors?
  • How are corrections done and what form do they take?
  • How do readers know when work has been corrected?
  • What are the barriers to correcting the scholarly literature – and, hopefully, the solutions to these problems?

Lead by expert speakers, this session will draw on their experience in handling corrections and developing editorial policies.
