EndNote Retraction Alerts

EndNote has teamed up with Retraction Watch to get regular feeds of their database. With EndNote 20.2, retracted articles will be flagged in the EndNote library. Retraction Watch’s database includes nearly 30,000 retracted papers and conference abstracts dating back to the 1970s.


To activate retraction alerts, you will need to be signed in to your EndNote online account. Once signed in, you will get alerts with every library you open. Retraction Watch data is updated multiple times a week.

EndNote for iOS is now available for both iPhone and iPad!

Syncing your EndNote library between your iOS device, desktop, and online account extends the power of EndNote for iOS and allows for seamless access to your reference library from multiple devices and platforms.
