This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.crossref.org/blog/news-crossref-and-retraction-watch
The Blog mentions “a community call on 27th September at 1 p.m. UTC to discuss this new development in the pursuit of research integrity.” how is that accessed? have details gone out already?
Hello! Thanks for reaching out. You can register here: Webinar Registration - Zoom
We are looking forward to seeing you online!
Will the retraction dataset be fully integrated into Crossref’s API? For example, will we be able to search for retractions by journal, author name, institution, etc.?
Yes, that’s our plan. Geoffrey, our Director of Technology & Research, mentioned that very thing in a thread earlier today:
'Our recently announced opening of the RetractionWatch data will only ever be made available via the REST API.
Will the Retraction Watch Hijacked Journals Checker also be implemented somehow, that would be marvelous!!!
