Abstract: Policies and practices to correct and retract scientific articles suffer from numerous limitations that are increasingly discussed in the literature. We briefly summarize these issues and propose a new and unified taxonomy of amendment types. The proposed 13-category system both simplifies and expands existing classifications and may be used as a heuristic tool to retrospectively classify literature amendments, as a taxonomy for electronic tagging, and as a blueprint for new amendment formats that journal editors could experiment with. We argue that an implicit or explicit diversification of amendment types would make correction and retraction practices more efficient, transparent, informative and supportive of scientific self-correction.
