MARC Record Corrections & Retractions


For a full list of our corrections, see the section “MARC Record Corrections & Retractions” on the Metadata Downloader information page.


The Metadata Downloader now has the option to download deleted MARC records (= Retractions). Deleted records are those that were once, but are no longer, available on SpringerLink.

To get deleted records, choose “Only Deleted” under the heading “Date modified and Record Status” in the "Filters" section. You can either download all records that have been retracted so far if you select "Only deleted" under "All Time". Or, you can also further query for retractions in a specific time-frame by indicating a start date next to the "Starting from" option and selecting "Only deleted" under this option.

This functionality replaces the retraction Excel lists published here for earlier years.
