Title:The problems of post-retraction citation - and mitigation strategies that work
Author(s):Schneider, Jodi

Reducing the Inadvertent Spread of Retracted Science: Shaping a Research and Implementation Agenda
Abstract:Retraction is intended to remove articles from the citable literature. However, a series of studies from over 30 years, from 1990 through 2020, have found that many retracted papers continue to be cited, and cited positively, even following misconduct-related retractions. For instance, a fraudulent clinical trial report retracted in 2008 continues to receive citations in 2020, and 96% of post-retraction citations do not mention its citation - perhaps because its retraction not marked on the publisher website and its retraction notice cannot be readily retrieved from 8 out of 9 databases we tested. This talk draws an ongoing systematic mapping study of research about retraction and our own research projects to summarize what is known about post-retraction citation in biomedicine. We outline practical steps that authors and reviewers can take to avoid being caught out by poorly marked retracted papers.
