Information Corrections and Retractions

The International Academic Research Consortium is dedicated to maintaining the integrity and credibility of the research published in our journal. When errors, inaccuracies, or ethical concerns are identified in published articles, the journal promptly addresses them. Clear Corrections and Retractions Processes and Policies are followed to keep the process transparent.  address such issues promptly and transparently. 

 

Corrections & Retractions:

Corrections are issued for minor errors, such as typographical errors, factual inaccuracies, or omissions, that do not significantly impact the overall validity or interpretation of the research findings. Authors or readers who identify errors in published articles are encouraged to notify the editorial office promptly, providing detailed information about the nature of the error and its potential impact.

 

Upon receiving a notification of an error, the editorial team conducts a thorough assessment of the reported issue to verify its accuracy and significance. If the error is deemed to warrant correction, the editorial team collaborates with the authors to prepare and publish a correction notice, detailing the nature of the error, the correct information, and any implications for the interpretation of the research findings. Retractions are issued for more serious issues, such as scientific misconduct, ethical violations, data fabrication, or other breaches of research integrity, that call into question the validity or reliability of the published article. Retractions are initiated when there is clear evidence of serious error or misconduct that undermines the credibility or validity of the research findings.

 

Retraction notices are published prominently in the journal, clearly stating the reason for retraction, providing an explanation of the issues identified, and outlining any implications for the scientific record or ethical considerations. This journal allows such authors to respond to the retraction notice and provide any relevant explanations or clarifications.

 

Process for Initiating Corrections or Retractions:

Corrections or retractions may be initiated by the authors, readers, editorial board members, or other stakeholders who identify issues with published articles. To request corrections or retractions, a submission should be made to the editorial office in writing, accompanied by supporting evidence and a detailed explanation of the concerns raised.

 

The editorial team reviews each request carefully. It consults with relevant experts, ethics committees, or institutional authorities as needed to verify the validity and significance of the issues identified.

 

Decisions regarding corrections or retractions are made based on the severity of the issues identified, the potential impact on the scientific record, and adherence to ethical guidelines and best practices.

The International Academic Research Consortium maintains transparency and accountability throughout the Corrections and Retractions Process. Correction and retraction notices are published promptly and prominently in the journal, ensuring that readers are informed of any errors or misconduct identified in published articles.
