Correction and retraction

Journal is committed to maintaining the accuracy and integrity of the scientific record. We expect authors to inform the editor of any errors they have noticed in their article once published. Retractions will be issued where required in accordance with COPE guidelines. 

Errors in an article that affect the content of the article will be corrected through the publication of notice in the next available print issue. The online version of the article will link to the correction notice. Corrections are made at the journal’s discretion.

Retractions are considered by journal editors in cases of evidence of unreliable data or findings, plagiarism, duplicate publication, and unethical research. A replacement version of the article will be posted where required containing just the metadata, with a retraction note replacing the original text. The PDF will be replaced with a version watermarked with “Retracted” but the original text will remain accessible.
