Retracted: Essential Oils Loaded in Nanosystems: A Developing Strategy for a Successful Therapeutic Approach

Received17 Dec 2020
Accepted17 Dec 2020
Published19 Feb 2021

Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine has retracted the article titled “Essential Oils Loaded in Nanosystems: A Developing Strategy for a Successful Therapeutic Approach” [1] due to high level of text similarity with previously published articles [26], of which [2, 4] were not cited.

A reassessment of the article concluded that large areas of overlapping text were identified throughout the article, especially in Section 5, “EO-Loaded Nanodelivery Systems.” The article is therefore being retracted with the agreement of the editorial board and the authors.
