Withdrawal Defenition: 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 article withdrawal, since it wastes valuable manuscript processing time, money and works invested by the publisher.
- Pre-Review: is a period that an author(s) submit(s) her/his article until to be sent for review.
- Peer-Review: is a period that manuscript submitted completely into the website and 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 1000 USD as the withdrawal penalty.
- Review – Final Decision: The authors must have compelling reasons and pay 1000 USD as 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
