Corrections and Retractions

 

(1) Article Withdrawal

Author’s may realize the need to make corrections or to withdraw a manuscript after submitting it. To facilitate this justifiable requirement the Journal has devised its Correctiona and Withdrawal Policy.

 

According to this policy, the author can withdraw the manuscript at any time before its publication in its final form or during peer review process. The author has to submit a withdrawal request by email to the Editorial Office stating proper reason and decision would be taken by the editor and proceeded accordingly .If the publisher/Editor decides to withdraw the article due to reasons like plagiarism, duplicate or multiple publication, manipulation of data and any other such fraudulent acts and email would be sent to the author for proper explanation and further rectification. If not satisfied or no response from the author, editor or the publisher just removes the article on leaving a note with the information regarding the withdrawal. A note email may be sent to the affiliating institute/department/university/ academic superiors of the author about the author’s unethical practice (if any).

 

(2)   Article Corrections

An errata or corrigenda or addenda will be published in case of discovery of a major or significant error in a manuscript after its publication. This is done with the consent of both the publisher and the author. However minor errors which do not affect the content in a big way would be ignored. To avoid existence of error in the published paper, the corrected manuscript will be replaced for its PDF version as soon as the manuscript is corrected. This helps the readers /users to have corrected manuscript at the earliest.

 

Though the corrections are made directly to the content by altering the existing version, the details of the correction will be available in the erratum page, towards maintaining the integrity of the published content.

 

“Errata” refers to corrections pertaining to major typographical errors or mistakes in figures and overlooked proof corrections or errors in details regarding the identity of the author.

“Corrigenda” refers to corrections of factual errors that may invalidate the main contents of the paper. Errors noticed by readers, can be represented through “Letter to Editor” and after reviewing the nature and accuracy of the errors pointed out, the required changes will be published along with the comments of the reader given in the “Letter to the Editor”.

 

“Addenda” refers to addition of very important content which has been omitted by mistake during the editorial process. The content of the Addenda will also be peer-reviewed before publication and a request for Addenda is entertained only in cases of utmost importance.

 

(3)   Article Retraction

The publisher can withdraw/retract the article due to reasons like plagiarism, duplicate or multiple publication, manipulation of data, conclusions arrived on a faulty or illogical rationale and any other such fraudulent acts. The publisher removes/retracts the article on leaving a note with the information regarding the retraction. This is done with the consent of the author and if in case of non-acceptance of retraction by an author, the decision of the editor is final. Full or Partial retraction of the article is done depending on individual cases.

 

(4)   Article Removal

If a published article poses problems on legal grounds the publisher/editor will remove the article. Other cases that will warrant a removal of an article after publication are: a court order against the publication, a violation of copyrights or if the article infringes upon the legal rights of a third party or if the contents are defamatory or slanderous in nature.

 

(5)   Article Replacement

Sometimes if the case demands only a replacement instead of a total removal of a content the Journal allows the replacement as per the directions of the Corrections and Retraction policy of the Journal.

 

On executing any of the above based on author request or of authors carelessness or due to errors from author’s side, an official expenses reimbursement may be claimed from the journal office to the author for updating/changing the official records and other process.
