The retraction of an article by its authors or the Editor happens when COPE guidelines proceed to this conclusion:
- A retraction titled "(article title) Retraction" signed by the authors and/or the Editor is published in a subsequent entry
- A link on the retraction is supplied to the original article (and vice versa)
- The original article is watermarked "Retracted"
- The original HTML version is removed
