The continued citation of retracted papers perpetuates the damage done to scientific knowledge and understanding. We need publishers to act quickly and clearly to indicate if a paper they have published has been retracted. The retraction notices need to clearly indicate the reasons for the retraction, so researchers, the media and the general public can know the reasons why and whether to modify their views on the published claims.
