Retraction Watch is a blog owned by the Center for Scientific Integrity, originally launched in 2010 by Ivan Oransky and Adam Marcus. The blog reports on retractions of scientific papers and related topics. It later expanded into creation a Retraction Watch database to assist in documenting and looking up retractions, as official retraction notices are often difficult to track and interpret. The ultimate goal of Retraction Watch is to minimize the risk of researchers continuing to use and work from content in retracted articles.
Third Iron integrates retraction data from Retraction Watch to improve research efforts of end users. Below, this page will show what can be expected when a user encounters a retracted article within LibKey Link.

LibKey continues to provide access to an article even after retraction as there are many good reasons for a researcher to read or use an article after retraction. They may want to cite the article as an example of retraction in scholarly works, to explain errors in an article that cited the retracted article, et cetera.
