The Wild and Unwieldy World of Retractions

Caitlin J Bakker, Amy L Riegelman

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Scholarly publications are retracted for a plethora of reasons (e.g., irreproducible research, data fraud, fake peer review, honest error), and have been trending upward in recent years. The Committee on Publication Ethics and other associations have guidelines for how retractions should be identified, and studies have found the notifications to be inconsistent across platforms. Come to this session to learn about the various complexities of retractions and gain an awareness of tools that help users discover status changes. The presenters will demonstrate CrossMark, Retraction Watch Database and more!
