Spotted incorrect or missing references on INSPIRE? Now it is easier for you to let us know about such things as we simplified our reference correction form.
Here’s how it works: Once you check the references of a paper, the tab offers you an “Update these references link” to update and correct them as needed.
Then you have three options.
- If there is a revised arXiv version with an updated reference list, you simply need to click this option and submit.
- If the published version has an updated reference list, in the second step please paste the reference list.
- If there are some references that have not been correctly identified, please provide detailed corrections in the second step.
In case there are no references added so far, you can just paste the whole reference list in an empty text field.
We’d also appreciate it if you would add a link to a pdf version of the paper. This will make identifying the references much easier and, thus, also much faster. For the first option this is not necessary.
If you have any issues or suggestions about the form, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
