Well, now you can. We’re very pleased to announce that PubChase, a free biomedical literature search and recommendation tool, will now feature links to Retraction Watch posts. As PubChase writes in an announcement of the new initiative:
You have a thousand papers in your library. One of them is retracted today. How do you know? Starting today, any new story on Retraction Watch will be linked to from the corresponding paper in PubChase. Most importantly, starting today, if a paper in your library is retracted and there is an announcement on Retraction Watch or PubMed, you will get a notification from PubChase right away.
For example, if you had the Micron paper “Sperm ultrastructure in two species of Panorpa and one Bittacus (Mecoptera)” in your PubChase library, you’d have received a notification that the paper had been retracted. And the PubChase entry would include a link to our post on the paper.
Science is an ever-evolving enterprise and no paper is ever final or static. We are pushing hard to facilitate the sharing of new knowledge and to ensure that this information finds you.
So go check out PubChase — no, we have no financial relationship with the site, so we don’t earn any kind of referral fee — and let relevant retractions come to you.
