The number of retracted publications in dental literature has constantly grown from 2005 to 2016, with a tendency to stabilize in the last four-year period. Misconduct or fraud was by far the most common reason for retraction. A majority of these papers were authored in Asia, with many written in India. Most of the authors are present in only one p...
