Rolling Stone plans to publish the full external report on its horribly reported UVA rape story. The giant article — written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely and published way back in November — almost immediately unravelled.

In December, Rolling Stone was forced to admit it had done little to verify the rape account central to the story, and called upon Columbia University to investigate its reporting.

Steve Coll, Columbia’s J-School dean, is penning the report. Will Dana, Rolling Stone’s managing editor, told the New York Times that Coll’s report will be published in full “in the next couple of weeks.”

While Dana has been offering statements on the article since it was called into question, there has yet to be any comment from Erdely.
