Medical School Libraries' Handling of Articles That Report Invalid Science.
Pfeifer, Mark P.; Snodgrass, Gwendolyn L.
Academic Medicine, v67 n2 p109-13 Feb 1992
Survey of 95 medical school libraries found that 91.5 percent of copies of retracted articles were not tagged as being invalid, that 79 percent of the libraries had tagged none of the retracted studies; and only 16 percent had policies for managing articles that report invalid science. A common attitude against perceived library censorship was frequently expressed by respondents. (Author/DB)
