I would like to cite a particular paper that has been retracted, due to a specific error the authors have initially overseen in their analysis. Because this specific error is the subject of my discussion, I want to include it as an example. Now, how do I cite it correctly? For example, ...
- Should the citation appear in my list of references?
- Am I supposed to use the general citation format; e.g. Smith et al. (2000)?
- Should I or am I actually allowed to mention the author's names?
- Can I be brief and simply write: Smith et al. (2000, Nature, retracted)?
