    • Have retraction notices improved over time?

      https://retractionwatch.com/2018/08/...ved-over-time/


      Correcting the literature is key for ensuring the quality of data and that the scientific method is respected. Readers should at least be able to differentiate retractions for honest errors from retractions for fraud or plagiarism.

      Their confidence in the authors’ integrity is linked to the kind of retraction. We insist on the importance of the reader knowing whether the data, and which data, are valid.

      Indeed, readers must be able to distinguish retracted articles, for which the information is completely false (ex: fabrication, falsification), from cases where information is scientifically valid (ex: authorship conflicts). When articles are retracted for honest error, readers should know if all or only part of the data are involved.

      • ‘Replication crisis’ spurs reforms in how science studies are done

        https://www.sciencenews.org/blog/sci...ies-statistics

        What started out a few years ago as a crisis of confidence in scientific results has evolved into an opportunity for improvement. Researchers and journal editors are exposing how studies get done and encouraging independent redos of published reports. And there’s nothing like the string of failed replications to spur improved scientific practice.

          • Avoidance, pacing, or persistence in multidisciplinary functional rehabilitation for chronic musculoskeletal pain: An observational study with cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses

            https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0203329

            Behavioral factors influence the development and perpetuation of musculoskeletal pain. Three main activity patterns have been described in patients with chronic pain: avoidance, pacing, and persistence[1]. Avoidance has been defined as a decrease in physical and daily activity, which occurs for several reasons such as fear of movement, fear of pain, or depressed mood[2]. Pacing is considered as a natural behavior to deal with chronic pain and activity[3], and is also a promoted strategy in numerous therapeutic programs[4, 5] as a balance between excessive inactivity and excessive activity. So far, there is no universally recognized definition of activity pacing. Nielson described it as a “regulation of activity level and/or rate in the service of an adaptive goal"[6]. It includes different strategies such as slowing down, alternating activity and pause, or dividing activity into smaller tasks. Persistence, also labeled as endurance, confronting, or overdoing, has received more attention over the past few years[79]. It has been defined as continuing activity despite pain, with high or more fluctuating levels of activity, and detrimental effects due to overuse[8].
