Withdrawal and appeals

Errors in published articles

Authors who discover an error in their published article must contact the journal as soon as possible using the contact details listed on the journal’s home page.

Article withdrawal

Submitted manuscripts can be withdrawn by the authors before final acceptance of the manuscript for publication (i.e. before it is published on line with formal identifiers (e.g. DOI number, volume and page number)). Authors should submit an email to the Editors to request the withdrawal providing reasons for their decision to withdraw.

Articles that have been accepted for publication but not yet published in their final form may be withdrawn prior to final publication, where:

- They are found to contain errors.

- They may have breached journal publishing policies in the view of the editor, e.g., multiple submissions, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, etc.
