Retraction Note to: Scientometrics (2016) 109:1455–1476

Akadémiai Kiadó and Springer Nature are retracting this article (Lin et al. 2016) because the pattern of overlap with other published articles (Rorissa and Yuan 2012; Hsu et al. 2015) calls the validity of the data into question. In addition, there are concerns with respect to the reliability of the data presented. None of the authors have responded to correspondence from the Publisher about this retraction.
