New feature for greater transparency

ZB MED search portal LIVIVO makes retracted publications clearly visible

When errors or violations of good scientific practice are found in a publication, it is either corrected or retracted, depending on the severity of the error. In some search portals, however, the reference to such a retraction is buried deep in the details of the metadata. LIVIVO, the ZB MED search portal for the life sciences, takes a different approach and clearly marks these retractions for all to see.
