Corrections, Retraction Notes, Expressions of Concern

Correction and retraction notes should be easily linked to the respective publication and include some crucial information, e.g., reference to the corrected/retracted article(s). Authorship roles might also be special etc.


  1. To add support to this recommendation, I co-chair the NISO WG that Armin mentions on the downstream communication of information about retractions:

    We hope to release our recommended practice later this year. This will include recommended metadata fields related to retractions and we want to alert relevant schema creators/providers to those. We’d be happy to share those so that they can be considered for inclusion in JATS4R recommendations.
