I am not excited to say that there were similar problems in the raw data of another of my papers - this paper is now retracted too. I know there might be some interest in what's going on so here is the full account of how and why I came to this decision:
I've updated my blog post to provide a little more explanation about data exploration and what I am thinking about as I move forward from #Pruittdata
amazing blog post about an academic nightmare: junior researcher collaborates with senior researcher who gives her data, and it turns out to be fabricated
El penúltimo caso descubierto de rotura de integridad científica y la decisión correcta de retirar tres artículos científicos basados en datos cuya veracidad se ha puesto en duda. Explicado con sumo detalle por la propia investigadora Kate Laskowski. Léase
Also: huge props to for owning up in the most transparent and professional way. THIS should give more credit for tenure than any number of publications: #integrity

It’s hard to read your coauthor’s letter and not conclude that you probably copy-pasted (ie faked at least some of) the data in 3 papers, and then had no good explanation when she pointed it out to you. Keen to hear your side of the story.
Excellent blog post about the process of discovering data issues with already published work and the integrity of subsequently retracting of papers + confronting the author of the shoddy data.
OMFG, every scientist's worst nightmare! And what an upright, honest and scholarly way to deal with it: "What to do when you don’t trust your data anymore"
This is written up as diplomatically as possible, under the circumstances.
This is a terrifying story of a collaboration using archival data that eventually led to several retractions. Worth the read. God do I hate playing with other people’s data - now newly reconfirmed.
