Excellent![edit]

Good idea! To be more informative, the template could include wikilinks to Retraction and Scientific misconduct. (See also Category:Scientific misconduct). To make it more noticeable, I suggest it be italicized. -- Brangifer (talk) 23:14, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Link note[edit]

Sandbox version now uses {{link note}}, which is now the standard meta-template for citation add-ons such as {{subscription required}}. ---— Gadget850 (Ed) talk 18:50, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, except it doesn't have the same behaviour as the current version, and the message isn't exactly what it should be. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 19:07, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Here's what's different. Additionally, the sandbox version adds the category when the retracted paper is marked as intentional, and it should be the opposite behaviour. The category should be there when it's not marked as intentional. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 01:32, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

How to handle "partially retracted"[edit]

How should items that are "partially retracted" be handled? (e.g. PMID11565755, cited in (HNRPAB)). Just a flat "retracted" seems possibly misleading. May be desirable to indicate that partially retracted, so treat with caution, but not totally retracted. Zodon (talk) 01:33, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Discussion/use of this template[edit]

I had tagged this template as part of WPMED, but I see that was reverted. The main reason for tagging was to provide context for editors stumbling on this tag who wanted to know where it came from, why it was used, etc. The same purpose may be served by providing a link to the background discussion Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine#Creating a bot to search Wikipedia for retracted papers.
