The Retraction Watch Database

Since 2010, Retraction Watch has been tracking and reporting on scientific retractions, part of science's "self-correcting" process. After several years of labor, Retraction Watch recently released its vast database of retractions to the public. Launched in October 2018, the Retraction Watch Database offers a searchable and openly available collection of more than 18,000 retractions, corrections, and expressions of concern dating back to the 1970s from scientific journals around the world. Those interested can search this database by author, title, journal, reasons for retraction, and a host of other fields. New users should begin by visiting the user guide linked at the top of the page, where they will find a detailed overview and instructions. The creation of the Retraction Watch Database was funded by grants from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. Retraction Watch and its database were founded by science journalists Adam Marcus and Ivan Oransky, who is also a Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University's Carter Journalism Institute.
