Retraction score: 9-5

A new Ulrich Lichtenthaler retraction appeared today in Technological Forecasting and Social Change. The journal reported: “This article has been retracted at the request of the authors.”

In my summary of the 2012 roundup, I listed this as one of 12 high-risk articles, because it was explicitly based on the Licensing Executive Survey which accounting for 6/8 of Dr. Lichtenthaler’s retractions.

In the retraction race, Licthenthaler leads with 9, vs. 5 for Ernst and many others in a distant third.
