Bad News and Good News

This post originally appeared on the Software Carpentry website.

The bad news is, retractions of scientific papers have risen tenfold since 1990. The good news is, the rate has gone from 0.0007% to 0.007%. Going back to bad news, though, some estimates of how many papers ought to be retracted are around 1%, so we still have a long way to go.
