retractcheck

Build Status

Check DOIs in a paper for being retracted by running your manuscript through retractcheck. This is an R package that builds on the API of Open retractions (also an open source project).

The original inspiration for this package can be found in a tweet by @PaolaPalma and the origin of the name in this tweet by @MarkHoffarth 🔥

Note that this repository will be moved to the Liberate Science account upon release

Installation

devtools::install_github('chartgerink/retractcheck')

Limitations

If the retractcheck package does not return any hits for retracted references, please note that the result is only as good as the data made available on this. A great research project would be checking this, which can be discussed
