The publication of a scientific article by an APA journal does not constitute its endorsement. The Association will not condone any attempt to censor the reporting or discussion of science within its journals so long as it has been conducted ethically and meets the scientific standards of the profession. Further, the Association will neither retract a published paper nor censure authors or editors for ethical scientific activities that yield potentially controversial findings. Scientific investigation is an evolving process: The ultimate evaluation of scientific results depends on a continuous exchange of ideas and reexamination of ideas and findings.
