Retracted Articles

Retracted Article designations are now available in WorldCat Discovery via LibKey. Users will see a retraction indicator when applicable, when the BrowZine (LibKey) integration is properly configured (see Step-by-Step Implementation Guide below).

When an institution has configured to use both LibKey AND links from DOI, the UI will prioritize links from LibKey over Unpaywall (the user will no longer see both link options to the same content). To leverage this functionality, “links from DOI” should be selected in Service Configuration > WorldCat Discovery and WorldCat Local > Full Text and Open Access Links.

The retraction notice will surface whether a library has “Display first primary link only” or “Display all primary links” selected in service configuration under Full Text and Open Access Links.  

For libraries that have the first primary link set to display, the retraction indicator will appear on search results as follows, with the “retracted article” notice and a “retracted article” label for the access online button.


For libraries with all primary links set to display, selecting the “Retracted article” button for an item with multiple e-links will pull out a drawer where the retracted article is labelled.


Step-by-Step Implementation Guide


Libraries are invited to consider multiple different approaches to utilizing this API as well as other interactions to get the best use out of the BrowZine Journal Engagement Service:

  1. Utilize the External Search API to create a search box on your home page to link a user's journal query directly into BrowZine!  If the user's query turns out to not be for scholarly journals but only trade journals or popular ones that BrowZine does not cover, the search is auto-routed back to OCLC Discovery's A-Z!
