The paper, “Isolation and characterization of goat retinal microvascular endothelial cells,” by Haribalaganesh Ravinarayanan, Banumathi Elayappan, Sheikpranbabu Sardarpasha, Deepak Venkataraman, Sirishkumar Namagiri, and Gurunathan Sangiliyandi has been retracted at the request of the Editors as it contains fraudulently manipulated data. Our investigation has found at least two instances of data misrepresentation in this paper. In figure 2a, the 12 h/10%FBS and 24 h/1%FBS photomicrographs are identical as are the 24 h/10%FBS and 36 h/10%FBS photomicrographs. We have also found instances of image duplication in the 0 h/1%FBS, 0 h/10%FBS, 12 h/1%FBS and 24 h/1%FBS photomicrographs. As such, this article represents a severe abuse of the scientific publishing system. The scientific community and the Editors take a very strong view on this matter, and apologies are offered to readers of the journal that this problem was not detected during the submission and review process.—The Editors
