As the adage goes, "sunlight is the best disinfectant".
PSIthority's platform is designed to raise reader awareness in the sciences. In addition, we hope to assist in raising community awareness of research misconduct and fraud. Being able to shine a bright (and permanent) light on those that partake in such affairs will (hopefully) in time, reduce such activities and ultimately reduce precious time and money wasted by others mislead into chasing such rubbish down the scientific rabbit hole.
Below is a list of PSI-recommended sites contributing to improving Scientific Research Integrity (in no particular order):

Updated Daily. Last Update: 1/31/2023 10:08:25 PM MST
The Retraction Repository Data Summary is currently offline (but is being updated daily behind the scenes). It is undergoing some backend changes (improving response times) as well as we are in the process of bringing the CrossRef and MEDLINE (Pubmed) 2022 datasets online. We estimate that this section will be back online in January 2022. We apologize for the inconvenience but 2022 is bringing some big updates for your data mining pleasure!
Daily updates for new publications, updates to existing publications, citations, etc. are going to be paused from Thursday Sept 9 to Sunday Sept 12, 2021 as the latest software release is being implemented for public availability. We apologize for the inconvenience but want to ensure platform stability from these new enhancements!
We are still sluggin' away on the backend enhancements but have added/fixed a few pieces on the front end in the meantime.
Periodicals in search results, publisher's lists, or any other list for that matter will report (via icons) some pertinent information regarding a listed periodical:
The idea here is to:
Much of the metadata in the scholarly publishing environment changes over time (hyperlinks change/break, journals disappear/become inactive/change publishers, Aim and Scopes change or are updated, etc.). The decentralized nature of the scholarly publishing environment makes it very difficult for the community to be aware of such changes/updates.
One of PSIthority's goals is to provide a medium for this environment to maintain these sort of metadata in near-real-time. However, to do so is nearly impossible for any single entity, organization or service to execute effectively. But together as a community (ie via crowdsourcing) this feat is entirely possible and to everyone's benefit.
The PSIthority platform is bringing new and improved functionality to user profiles, user libraries, as well the discussion forum system. They are not being removed - they are being improved! It turned out to be a difficult proposition to maintain the legacy code with the incremental changes being made. So for the sake of expedience, bear with us! You won't be disappointed!
The ETA for this development sprint is currently mid August, 2021. This release will include the base functionalities and features you're used to but the underlying code modifications will simplify extendability for new functionalities on our end.
Not an April Fool's! Publications now have a Citations Network tab to include publications that are part of the extended citation network of any publication. These citation networks are created by using magic ... or possibly a derivation of the BFS algorithm, think "Friend of a Friend" in the social media world. But let's stick with magic.
It's a simple and convenient way to discover related publications residing in the citation sphere for any given publication. Enjoy!
The PSI Library home page now includes the Retractions & EoC Notices tab that includes the latest retractions, expressions of concern as well as non-editorial comments being raised by third parties (i.e. PubPeer comments).
Updated daily, it is our hope that this integration will increase visibility of problematic publications within the literature record, reduce post-retraction citations, and bring more eyes to bear on the science.
Find the newest journals coming online for the current or past year.
As editors register their journals with us or as we stumble upon them in our internet travels, the latest journals will be automatically included on the PSI Library page under the News tab to assist in improving visibility and gaining traction.
Editors: if your journal is not yet registered with PSIthority, contact us today!
