Guide to information sources for Retracted journal articles

You will find this guide useful if you are a researcher and need to check if any of the research you cite or rely on has been retracted.

How does it effect you?

This effects you if you rely on a journal article in written work that you do not know has been retracted, or if you cite a retracted article in your bibliography without indicating that you are aware it has been retracted. You might include retracted journal articles if you are writing about retracted publications as the subject/topic of your work or if you are using a retracted journal article for illustrative purposes clearly indicating that you know it is retracted in the text.
