Geofluids has retracted the article titled “A Simple and Accurate Interpretation Method of In Situ Stress Measurement Based on Rock Kaiser Effect and Its Application” [1], due to similarity identified with a previous publication. The authors initially contacted the journal to request a correction to the article to add the citation and an accompanying discussion, however, the editorial board feel that a retraction of the article is required. This is because both articles use the cumulative ringing counts-time curve to determine the Kaiser point and this method is the primary idea of both papers.

The authors agree to the retraction and the notice.
