Retraction Watch

We receive weekly updates on retractions from Retraction Watch. Founded in 2010, Retraction Watch produces a highly read blog and the most comprehensive database of retractions available across all scientific fields. The mission of their parent organization, the Center for Scientific Integrity, is to promote transparency and integrity in science and scientific publishing, and to disseminate best practices and increase efficiency in science.

Microsoft Academic

We use the Microsoft Academic Graph to identify articles and their citations.  Microsoft Academic Graph is a heterogeneous graph containing scientific publication records, citation relationships between those publications, as well as authors, institutions, journals, conferences, and fields of study. This graph is used to power experiences in Bing, Cortana, Word, and in Microsoft Academic. The graph is currently being updated on a weekly basis.
