Correction, Retraction, Withdrawal Policies



-Before publications:

Publisher sends the PDF Galley proofs to the author for proofreading and corrections.  Author can highlight corrections if any. These can be correction before actual publishing the article.

-Post Publishing:

Corrections in the published paper article could be made if it seriously affects the results.


A retraction is a public statement made about an earlier statement that withdraws, cancels, refutes, or reverses the original statement or ceases and desists from publishing the original statement. The retraction may be initiated by the editors of a journal, or by the author (s) of the papers (or their institution). The editors will consult reviewers for their comments. The article will be retracted in cases such as multiple submission, plagiarism or fraudulent use of data. An alteration that changes the main point of the original statement is generally referred to as a retraction while an alteration that leaves the main point of a statement intact is usually referred to simply as a correction. Depending on the circumstances, either a retraction or correction is the appropriate remedy.


Withdrawal Policy

Few of the authors request withdrawal of manuscript from the publication process after submission or after publication. In some instances, the request for withdrawal is made when the manuscript is only a few days away from publication in the journal. This may cause time waste by the editors, reviewers, and the editorial staff. To withdraw an article, a formal request has to be made by Corresponding Author in the specified template. Withdrawn means that the article is archived in our database and not further acted upon. Articles which have not been published yet but represent early versions of articles, are discovered to be accidental duplicates of other published article(s), or are determined to violate our journal publishing ethics guidelines in the view of the editors may be “Withdrawn” from our Journal. The formal request to withdraw an article has to be made by the Corresponding Author.
