Flawed research not retracted fast enough to prevent spread of misinformation
Flawed research not retracted fast enough to prevent spread of misinformation, study finds Could Twitter discourse function as a 'red flag' system for problematic research? Retracting academic papers does not dampen the reach of problematic research in online platforms as intended.
