Search strategies to locate various types of articles

Search strategies for locating various types of articles: 

PubMed and Embase have published searches to locate retracted articles.  

  • For PubMed, open the tab for "Topic Specific Queries" and scroll down to the retracted article search

  • Embase has an Emtree term for "retracted article"  and an article type "Erratum."

Our suggested search to locate errata, corrigenda or "expressions of concern" in PubMed is:

"Published Erratum"[Publication Type] OR errata OR erratum OR corrigenda OR corrigendum OR "expression of concern"
