Withdrawal initiated by authors
-For manuscripts that are newly submitted but have not started peer review, the author should write to the editorial office to explain the reasons for withdrawal, and submit the consents document of all authors. Manuscripts may be considered for “Withdrawal”
-For manuscripts that have started or completed peer review but have not been officially published yet, the author should clearly explain the reasons for the withdrawal and submit the consents document of all authors. Only valid and reasonable reasons can be accepted given that editors and reviewers have spent a lot of time and energy in the manuscript processing.
After agreeing to withdraw the manuscript, the editorial office will send a withdrawal email to the author.
Journal of International Education and Practice thinks that the unethical and unreasonable reasons for withdrawal usually include:
1.Want to submit to a journal with a higher or lower impact factor. It is the author’s responsibility to review the background of the journal before submission.
2. After the peer review report is given, withdrawal of the manuscript on the ground of not knowing the Article Processing Charges (or unwilling to pay the Article Processing Charges). It is the author’s responsibility to understand the payment policy of the journal before submission.
Retraction to published articles
A Retraction notice will be issued if at any time it is found that there are infringements of publication ethics, such as multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or any major misconduct. Occasionally a retraction can be used to correct errors in submission or publication. The main reason for retraction is to correct the mistake while preserving the integrity of science. The decision to issue a retraction for an article will be made in accordance with COPE guidelines.
Standards for dealing with retractions have been developed by a number of library and scholarly bodies, and this practice has been adopted for article retraction by Journal of International Education and Practice:
- Add a “retracted” watermark to the published Version of Record of the article,
- Issue a separate retraction statement, titled ‘Retraction: [article title]’, that will be linked to the retracted article.
Authors should note that any amounts of paid Article Processing Charge will not be refunded if their accepted papers or Articles in Press are withdrawn on the grounds of academic misconducts and ethical violations in research and publication.
All major errors will be accompanied by a separate notice of correction and Journal of International Education and Practice will:
*Issue a separate notice of corrections electronically linked back to the corrected version.
Conversely, minor errors that do not affect the reliability of the academic content or the reader’s understanding of the academic content will no longer be notified separately for correction. We will add a footnote to the article to inform readers that the article has been corrected.
Expression of Concern
Journal of International Education and Practice will consider a concern detailing the focus and ongoing actions, if:
*Inconclusive evidence of author research or publication misconduct
*The results of this publication have not been completed and due to various complexities, the investigation will not be completed for a considerable period of time
All corrections, concerns and retractions are freely accessible at the time of posting.
