Withdrawal Policy



Authors are free to withdraw their manuscripts at any time before a decision is made. However, once a decision has been made, withdrawals will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances, such as:

  • A serious ethical concern is raised about the research.
  • The research is found to be fraudulent or plagiarized.
  • The research is no longer relevant or up-to-date.

To withdraw a manuscript, authors must submit a written request to the journal editor-in-chief. The request should explain the reason for the withdrawal and should be signed by all authors of the manuscript.

If a manuscript is withdrawn after a decision has been made, the editor-in-chief will decide whether to publish a notification of the withdrawal in the journal. This decision will be based on the reason for the withdrawal and the potential impact on the journal's reputation.

Authors who withdraw their manuscripts after a decision has been made may be subject to a publication ban from the journal for a period of time. The length of the ban will be determined by the editor-in-chief.
