Withdrawal of Manuscripts
Authors are not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawals are waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, money and works invested by the publisher.
However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscripts from one journal if accepted by another journal. Withdrawal of manuscripts are only allowed after withdrawal request has been made to the Publisher.
In case of fraudulent submission, Withdrawn means that the article content (HTML and PDF) is removed and replaced with a HTML page and PDF simply stating that the article has been withdrawn according to the journal Policy on Article in Press Withdrawal with a link to the current policy document.
Use of patient images or case details: Studies on patients or volunteers require ethics committee approval and informed consent, which should be documented in the paper.
Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects
If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.
Fundamental errors in published works
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
There are no submission charges. The paid publication fee will not refunded at any stage.
