Article retraction notice

OJS Version: OJS

How to display article retraction notice on the article page.

Hello @aurag,

Currently, there is no built-in way to issue an article retraction in OJS. However, there is some extensive discussion about adding this feature (see here, if you’re interested: Allow papers to be withdrawn without recording a rejected decision · Issue #1813 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub). One thing that you could do as a work-around, potentially, is remove the article from the issue, and add a single page article (similar to an editorial - you could even have it under a dedicated section called “Retractions”) indicating that the article has been retracted.

As part of the discussion that @rcgillis mentioned, there is a link to this document on Preprint withdrawals. There is a table (Table 4: Examples of preprint withdrawal and removal) that has some useful examples for different cases.


You can mention on the article PDF, and in abstract and references like in this paper RETRACTED ARTICLE: On the Role of Large Nuclear Gravity in Understanding Strong Coupling Constant, Nuclear Stability Range, Binding Energy of Isotopes and Magic proton numbers – A Critical Review | Journal of Nuclear Physics, Material Sciences, Radiation and Applications
