Withdrawing refers to unpublished papers, under review or accepted. Withdrawing a paper during peer-review or (worse) during the production after acceptance, but before publication, is an uncommon event and not considered good scientific practice, and must be done only in exceptional cases.
To avoid withdrawal of a manuscript
We request the authors especially to the corresponding author or the first author to address the following issues before submitting the manuscript:
Articles may only be withdrawn if they have not been formally published. To withdraw an article, the authors must write a clear and concise letter sand sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org, with an in-depth explanation as to why the manuscript needs to be withdrawn. The letter must be signed by all authors. Our journal maintains the right to withdraw an article due to the presence of plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or violations of other ethical codes.
Note that if Authors retain copyright for an article this does not mean they automatically have the right to withdraw it after publication. The integrity of the published scientific record is of paramount importance and these policies on retractions and withdrawals still apply in such cases.
Journal Editors should consider retracting a publication if:
Journal Editors shall determine based on investigation whether a retraction is required and in such cases shall act in accordance with COPE’s Retraction Guidelines. The following best practice for article retraction has been adopted by Social Sciences Journal:
Note that if Authors retain copyright for an article this does not mean they automatically have the right to retract it after publication. The integrity of the published scientific record is of paramount importance and COPE’s Retraction Guidelines still apply in such cases.
In an extremely limited number of cases, it may be necessary to remove a published article from online database. This will only happen if an article is clearly defamatory, or infringes others’ legal rights, or where the article is, or we have good reason to expect that it will be, the subject of a court order, or where the article, if acted upon, may pose a serious health risk. In such circumstances, while the metadata (i.e. title and author information) of the article will be retained, the text will be replaced with a screen indicating that the article has been removed for legal reasons.
