With the growth of team science and big data, the increasing complexity of scientific research may make preventable errors -- such as those involving analytic methods or data collection -- more common. This talk will present results from the first scoping review of articles in clinical and translational science retracted for reasons related to errors in data capture, management, or analysis. The work characterizes these errors with the goal of improving both detection and prevention.
