How much of a responsibility does the information community have to ensuring that the content we provide is authoritative? Preprints are a great way to make early research results availabe, but it's not always clear that those results are not yet thoroughly vetted. Peer review - a key element of scholarly publication - can help, but it's far from foolproof. Retractions are another important tool, but most retracted research is still all too readily available. What can and should we be doing to safeguard the integrity of the content being created, disseminated, and used?
