Communication of Retractions, Removals, and Expressions of Concern (CREC) Recommended Practice Publication Webinar



Retracted research—published work that is withdrawn, removed, or otherwise invalidated from the scientific and scholarly record—can be, and often is, inadvertently propagated within the digital scholarly record through citations. These citations are more likely to happen when content is 'silently' withdrawn or when the process for effectively communicating retraction at all publication lifecycle stages is unclear.

NISO's CREC Working Group has worked since the Summer of 2022 to create a Recommended Practice to provide a community-driven solution to ensure that retraction metadata is shared across the publishing and discovery ecosystem. The Recommended Practice is now published! Join CREC Working Group co-chair Caitlin Bakker, CREC Working Group Member and Sloan Foundation grant recipient Dr. Jodi Schneider, and CREC Working Group Member Maria Zalm as they discuss the project, the recently published document, and future plans for implementation.
