Edifix Happenings and How-Tos

  • ★ Using Edifix results to detect research integrity issues
    August 03, 2023 »

    Edifix has led the way in alerting users to two important types of “reference abuse”: citation of retracted articles, and citation of articles from predatory journals.

    Beyond specific alerts for retracted references or citations of predatory publications, Edifix results contain additional information that, upon closer review, may indicate problematic or even fake research content. This blog post explores how Edifix results can be used to detect additional issues that may warrant closer review by editorial teams.

  • A deep dive on DOIs
    September 17, 2020 »

  • Bring on the data citations!
    September 10, 2020 »

  • Edifix and the University Press
    January 22, 2020 »

    If there’s one thing university presses know well, it’s the challenges of long reference lists and bibliographies. Will the author follow your painstakingly compiled guidelines, or will they just use the style they like best (or some bewildering mixture of styles)? If an author uses reference management software, will they remember to proofread the results before submitting their manuscript, or will you get dozens of non-standard sources shoehorned into a template meant for journal articles? You know from experience that almost every bibliography contains inaccuracies, transcription errors, and duplications; will you have the time and resources to catch them all?
