Correction and Retraction of Articles
Corrections may be made to a published article with the authorization of the Managing and Chief Editor of JCTB. Editors will decide the magnitude of the corrections. Minor corrections are made directly to the original article. However, in cases of major corrections, the original article will remain unchanged, while the corrected version will also be published.
Both the original and corrected version will be linked to each other. A statement indicating the reason for the major change to the article will also be published. When necessary, retraction of articles will be done according to JCTB retraction guidelines
- Legal limitations of the publisher, copyright holder or author(s), infringements of professional ethical codes, such as multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or any major misconduct require retraction of an article.
- The retraction takes the form of a separate item listed in the contents and labeled as “Retraction”. The original article is retained unchanged, except for a watermark on the PDF indicating on each page that it is “retracted”.
- Retractions are published according to the requirements of JCTB operationalized by the journal indexer and aggregator.
