Post Publication Corrections and Retractions Policy

We believe in maintaining the highest standards of integrity and credibility for the content published in our journal. In keeping with this philosophy, we have established a set of Post Publication Policies to address any issues that may arise after a manuscript has been published in our journal.

The following are categories of corrections and post-publication updates to peer-reviewed articles.

Publisher’s Correction: A Publisher Correction may be published to correct an important error(s) made by the journal that affects the scientific integrity of the published article, the publication record, or the reputation of the authors or of the journal.

Author’s Corrections: We understand that errors or omissions may occur despite our best efforts to ensure the accuracy of published content. If author identify an error in a published article, it should be brought to our notice promptly. Any correction suggested by the author will also be considered after review by the editorial team and will be published, if found suitable, keeping the integrity and credibility of the content as a priority. Corrections will be made to the online version of the article and will include a clear explanation of the error and the corrected information.

Withdrawal of article: We take any breaches of ethical conduct, including plagiarism, fraud, or other forms of misconduct, very seriously. If we receive credible evidence of such misconduct, we will promptly investigate the matter and, if necessary, the affected article will be withdrawn from online content. Withdrawal notification will be issued to alert readers to the issue and will include a clear explanation of the reason for the withdrawal.

Changes in Name of Author: For authors who have changed their name for any genuine reason and wish to correct it on their published works, they may request a change in their name and other relevant biographical information.

Addon: An addon is generally published when significant additional information crucial to the reader’s understanding of the article has come to light following its publication.

Expressions of Concern: In some cases, we may become aware of potential issues with a published article that require further investigation but do not warrant an immediate retraction. In such cases, we will issue an Expression of Concern to alert readers to the issue and indicate that an investigation is ongoing.

We believe that maintaining transparency and responsiveness is essential for maintaining the integrity and credibility of our journal's content. Therefore, we take post-publication issues seriously and will promptly address any concerns that are brought to our attention.
