Thought this episode might be of interest to some. Not specifically about ME I am afraid (or not) but we've talked lots about retractions generally of course and in relation to XMRV etc. etc. Available on iPlayer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01n1rpr It refers I believe to research published this week that reveals more about the nature of recent retractions, why the number has increased and what the reasons are behind them. Anyway, figured it might interest others too Not sure it's available to our US buddies unfortunately - sorry chaps. Oh yeah forgot to mention, Ivan Oransky is one of the contributors. He of Retraction Watch of whom some will be familiar. Will try and get a hold of the new paper they are talking about tomorrow. Very interesting wee programme methinks.
