The CrossMark Policies

 | Post date: 2019/10/30 | 
Permanency of Contents: The contents of the articles published in the Journal are permanent regardless of the outcome of the subsequent reviews that may follow. All versions of the articles that have passed the peer-review are permanently archived in PubMed Central.
CrossMark is a multi-publisher initiative that provides a standard system for readers to locate the authoritative version of the published documents. Applying the CrossMark icon signifies the Journal’s commitment to maintain its contents and to alert the readers to changes when they occur.  The Journal recognizes the importance, integrity and completeness of the scholarly publications to researchers, librarians and the general public. By clicking on the CrossMark icon, the reader is given the current status of a document, other relevant publications available, and the most recent updates.
COPE Correction and Retration Policies:  The COPE policies take into account the current best practices in scholarly publication. In order to maintain the integrity and completeness of our scholarly records, the Journal follows the COPE guidelines when the published contents need correction or retraction. Thus, the Editor-in-Chief may retract an article in any of the following circumstances:
  • Clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either due honest errors or misconduct.
  • The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross referencing, permission or justification.
  • Evident plagiarism
  • Reporting unethical research
Note: Retraction of an article is not normally warranted if a change of authorship is required but there is no other reason to doubt the validity of the study findings.
The Editor-in-Chief may also consider issuing an expression of concern under the following circumstances:
  • If the Journal has received an inconclusive evidence of research misconduct by the authors.
  • If there is evidence that the findings are unreliable but the authors’ institution will not investigate the case.
  • If the Editor-in-Chief believes that an investigation into alleged misconduct related to the publication has not been fair, impartial and/or conclusive.
  • If an investigation is underway but a judgment will not be available for a considerable length of time.
The Editor-in-Chief may issue a correction in the following circumstances:
  • If a small portion of an otherwise reliable publication is proven to be misleading.
  • If the authors’ list is incorrect, such as a deserving author has been omitted or an individual who does not meet the authorship criteria has been added.
