It offered up a complete breakup of the major reasons behind the 107 papers being retracted. In addition, it also outlined whether or not the 521 implicated authors were innocent or guilty of misconduct, as well as the extent to which they were either directly or peripherally involved in the misconduct. This infographic provides a visual representation of the breakup, along with a short summary of the major consequences that will be enforced upon the parties guilty of misconduct.
