That’s up to you! The purpose of Cabells Reference Checking on Edifix is to give you additional information. What you do with that information will depend on many factors, including

  • Your role in the publication cycle
  • The manuscript’s stage in the publication cycle
  • The specific journal violations reported by Cabells Predatory Reports
  • The citation’s importance to the manuscript

In some cases, you may decide to remove the reference; in others, you may retain it. It will be up to you and your publisher to decide if the information requires follow-up, such as alerting the manuscript’s author(s) before publication or alerting readers after publication.
