The Australasian Journal of Philosophy issued a correction to a journal article published 35-years ago. It has been cited four times. This was reported in the journal Science for August 31, 2016.

Be sure to click on the paper mentioned in the article about the retraction. The paper published in Physical Review Letters is described as an influential paper on atomic behavior and is widely-cited.

It also has a four-footed co-author who became a co-author because the author had written "we" and "our" throughout and didn't want to re-type it. This co-author was subsequently offered a position in the physics department.
