Subject(s):retracted publications
citations to retracted publications

Retraction Watch database
Abstract:In Fall 2018, we downloaded records of all retracted publications included in the Dentistry category of the Retraction Watch database. Bibliographic data, article type, and reason for retraction, as noted by Retraction watch, were recorded. Known item searching was conducted in Scopus and Web of Science to identify articles citing these retracted publications. We found that the vast majority of citations to retracted publications were positive, regardless of reason for retraction or location of the citation. Retracted publications continue to be cited and influence future research.
