Publication withdrawal policy
Journal editors review rebuttals, corrections to a scientific article, and article retractions in accordance with COPE's retraction guidelines. The editors of the journal may make minor corrections to the text of an article in which errors have been made during typing or proofreading, but more significant corrections will be made only in accordance with COPE recommendations. If an author is found to have made a mistake, a correction is published in the journal.
The possibility of retraction of a published article is considered if:
- the scientific article contains serious flaws and there is clear evidence that the results are unreliable either as a result of a serious error or as a result of falsification and their conclusions or conclusions cannot be relied upon;
- this is plagiarism;
- the results were previously published elsewhere without proper citation, permission to reprint or justification;
- the scientific article contains materials or data without permission to use;
- copyright has been violated or there is another serious legal problem;
- proven use of unethical research.
Withdrawal of a published scientific article occurs after careful study of the problem and approval by the editors, the article is withdrawn from publication in the journal. The editors of the journal consider it inappropriate to withdraw an article in the following cases:
- the author reported a conflict of interest to the editors after publication, but, according to our decision, the conflict of interest did not affect the recommendations or conclusions of the article;
- authorship is denied, but there is no reason to doubt the reliability of the results;
- correcting an error in the article can eliminate the problem, and the main results of the work at the same time remain reliable, and the conclusions are effective;
- there is no convincing evidence to support the refutation.
The editors strive to adhere to the principles of transparency and follow the best practices of COPE scientific publications. The editorial staff of the journal practices a policy of open access to published material, supporting the principles of free dissemination of scientific information and knowledge exchange for global social progress.
