Withdrawal and Retraction

Article Revocation & Withdrawal

It is generally a principle of scientific communication that the editor of a journal or proceedings is fully and independently responsible for deciding which articles to submit for publication. Through making these decisions, the Editor is guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and is limited by legal requirements such as libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The result of this principle is the importance of scientific archives as a permanent historical record of scholarship transactions. Articles that have been published must remain correct and unchanged as far as possible. However, circumstances may sometimes arise where articles that are published later must be withdrawn or even deleted. Such actions should not be taken lightly and can only occur in exceptional circumstances. throughout the case,

This policy has been designed to address this issue and to take into account best practices in the academic and library communities. As standards develop and change, we will review these issues and welcome all input from libraries and the academic community. We believe this issue requires international standards and will actively lobby for information sharing to establish international standards and best practices that industry information and publications can adapt to.

Article Revocation

Articles may be withdrawn due to scientific error in cases such as multiple submissions, false claims of authorship, plagiarism or fraudulent use of data. A signed statement from the author must be submitted before the article can be withdrawn. The consent of all authors of a paper is required before a retraction can be issued. A notice of retraction will be published and a link to the original article will be clearly marked as retracted. In addition, the notification will also include the reason for the withdrawal and who withdrew the article. The original article will not be removed from the online version and the journal print version, but will be identified as a retracted article. The revocation will also be listed on the content page.

Article Withdrawal

Article withdrawal is strongly discouraged and used only in exceptional circumstances for early versions of articles that have been accepted for publication but not yet officially published but may already appear online. Versions may contain errors, may have been posted by mistake twice or may violate the journal's publishing ethics guidelines (e.g. multiple submissions, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, inappropriate use of data, etc.). In such situations, especially in cases of legal/ethical violations or false/inaccurate data which may pose a risk of loss if used, it can only be decided to withdraw the initial version of the article from our electronic platform.

A side note, if the author owns the copyright to the article, it does not mean that he has the right to withdraw it after publication. The integrity of published scientific records is paramount and this policy of retraction and withdrawal still applies in such cases.

Article Deletion

In a very limited number of cases, published articles may need to be removed from our online platform. That will only be the case where an article is manifestly libelous, or violates another's legal rights, or where the article is, or we have good reason to expect, to be the subject of a court order, or where the article, if acted on, could pose a serious health risk. In such circumstances, while the metadata (i.e. title and author information) of the article will be retained, the text will be replaced with a screen indicating that the article has been removed for legal reasons.

Article Replacement

In cases where the article, if acted upon, could pose a serious health risk, the author of the original paper may wish to retract the original and replace it with an amended version. In such circumstances, the above removal procedure will be followed by the difference that the article retraction notice will contain a revised and republished link along with the document history.
