Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage[edit]

This template is used to mark citations to retracted works. Using

  • Smith, J. (2008). "Foobar." ''Journal of Barfoo''. '''5''':12. {}

gives

  • Smith, J. (2008). "Foobar." Journal of Barfoo. 5:12. (Retracted. If this is an intentional citation to a retracted paper, please replace {{Retracted}} with {{Retracted|intentional=yes}}.)

If the retracted article is intended to be cited, for example while discussing the role of the publication in a controversy, then use

  • {}

which gives

  • Smith, J. (2008). "Foobar." Journal of Barfoo. 5:12. (Retracted)

If it's not intended to be cited, the citation should be removed per WP:RS, and the content of the article updated accordingly.

If a link to the retraction is desired, you can use

  • Smith, J. (2008). "Foobar." ''Journal of Barfoo''. '''5''':12. {}

which gives

  • Smith, J. (2008). "Foobar." Journal of Barfoo. 5:12. (Retracted, see PMID 21685368)

The retraction identifier links |bibcode= (for bibcodes), |doi= (for DOIs), |pmc= (for PMCIDs), and |pmid= (for PMIDs) are supported. Failing that, {{Retracted|https://...}} is also supported for a generic web link.

The template works with citation templates too, for example

*{} {}

gives

  • Kanadia, RN; Cepko, CL (1 February 2010). "Alternative splicing produces high levels of noncoding isoforms of bHLH transcription factors during development". Genes & Development. 24 (3): 229–34. doi:10.1101/gad.1847110. PMID 20080942. (Retracted, see PMC 3127434, PMID 21685368)

Do not use this template in the fields of citation templates such as Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2, as the HTML markup will be rendered in the metadata for that field.

Cleanup and tracking categories[edit]

Pages containing this template will be placed in the category Category:Articles citing retracted publications. Pages containing unintentionally citations will instead be placed in Category:Articles unintentionally citing retracted publications. Ideally this last category should be empty.
