    Introduction

    CDI secondary content types provide specific information about the type of record. They do not replace but add value to the record's primary content types. Their purpose is to display additional information about the record/item in the brief display and Quick Look, and to allow filter/search on these secondary types as part of Secondary Content Type facet. The secondary content types may be one of the following types:

    • Regular – These types display as indicators in the brief display of a record in the search results and Quick Look.

      Brief Display in Search Results - Regular Type Message
    • Warning – These types display above the brief display of a record in the search results and Quick Look. They are used to warn users of a potential issue with a document in their search. Users can display additional information by selecting or hovering over the message. In the following example, the record displays two warnings:

    While in some cases the secondary content types can be taken directly from a field in the source data, but in other cases we use words or phrases from the title or other metadata fields to identify them. Not all items in CDI can be associated with their secondary types, but since we continuously update our content, newly flagged items will appear over time.

    The following table lists the currently supported secondary content types in CDI:

    Document Attribute Name Type Definition Source Examples

     Review Article

    Regular

    An article that provides analysis, review or interpretation of a body of primary research on a specific topic. Presents a current state of the research on a particular topic or research area.

    PubMed, BMJ, Springer, Elsevier

     Primary Source

    Regular

    The primary sources provide first-hand testimony or direct evidence concerning a topic under investigation. They contain the actual textual material that is the subject of research. The Library of Congress refers to them as the "raw materials of history — original documents and objects which were created at the time under study.

    Alexander Street Press

     Preprint

    Regular

    A preprint is a preliminary version of a scientific manuscripts that researchers share by posting to online platforms known as preprint servers before peer-review and publication in an academic journal. Preprints are typically published in Preprint servers, publicly available online archives that host preprints and their associated data.

    ArXiv

    Retracted Publication

    Warning

    A retraction is the action by which a published paper in an academic journal is removed from the journal, because the publication contains such seriously flawed or erroneous data that their findings and conclusions cannot be relied upon. Unreliable data may result from honest error or from research misconduct. Datasets can also be retracted. The original article may and in most cases will have a different date than the retraction notice.

    Crossref, Pubmed

    Retraction Notice

    Warning

    A retraction notice typically accompanies the retraction of a scientific publication. It is a short article written by the editors or authors explaining the reason for a retraction.

    Crossref, Pubmed

    Publication with Addendum

    Warning

    A publication that contains an addendum, a notification of an addition of information to an article.

     

    Publication with Corrigendum

    Warning

    A publication with a correction notice or corrigendum, a change to the article that the author wishes to publish at any time after the article acceptance or publication, usually to correct an error.

     

    The following table lists the secondary content types that are planned for future releases in 2023:

    Withdrawn Publication

    Warning

    A withdrawal is the action by which a paper in an academic journal is removed from the journal  before the article is published (before or after peer review, during peer review or just before publication). Occasionally, articles 'in press' or published 'ahead of print' may also be withdrawn.  The original article may and in most cases will have a different date than the withdrawal notice.

    Withdrawal Notice

    Warning

    A withdrawal notice typically accompanies the withdrawal of a scientific publication. It is a short article written by the editors or authors explaining the reason for a withdrawal.

    Publication with Expression of Concern

    Warning

    An editorial expression of concern (EEoC) is a notice issued by a publisher against a particular publication, warning that it may contain errors or be otherwise untrustworthy, without itself constituting a retraction or correction.
