Withdrawal is an action that takes the manuscript out of the review process and places it back into the author's dashboard.
Our View Regarding Withdrawal
In General, we do not suggest the article withdrawal, since it wastes valuable manuscript processing time, cost and works spent by the publisher.
- Pre-Review: is periods at which the author(s) submit(s) her/his article until to be sent for the review.
- Peer-Review: is a period at which the manuscript is submitted completely to the website and is included in the review process.
- Review-Final Decision: is a period from the acceptance of an article until to be sent for publication if the article meets the journal standards.
- Post-Publication: when a paper is published (online and/or hard copy).
- Pre-Review: The author(s) can withdraw their papers at this step without paying any charges and/or posing compelling reasons.
- Peer-Review: The authors must have compelling reasons and pay withdrawal fee.
- Review-Final Decision: The authors must have their compelling reasons and pay the withdrawal penalty.
- Post-Publication: Withdrawing at this step is not possible at all.
What Are Compelling Reasons?
- Bogus claims of authorship
- Multiple submission
- Fraudulent use of data or the like
- Infringements of professional ethical codes
