Article Correction, Retraction and Withdrawal Policy

General Principles

IJRIAR believes in protecting and maintaining the integrity of the academic record. Articles officially published in IJRIAR are considered as the 'Version of Record'. Very rarely, when the scientific information in an article is substantially undermined then it becomes necessary for IJRIAR to publish corrections to, or retractions of articles published in its journal, at the discretion of the editors.

Article Corrections

Authors are encouraged to report errors in their articles with regard to the accuracy of published information. Only errors that impact the article significantly will be considered. Corrections are made at the journal's discretion. The correction procedure depends on the publication stage of the article. Corrections will be published under corrections and addendum in a later issue of the journal.

Article Retractions

The article may be retracted because of scientific misconduct in cases such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism or fraudulent use of data. A signed statement from the concerned authors will be required to be submitted before an article can be retracted. Agreement of all authors of a paper is required before a retraction can be published. A notice of retraction will be published and linked to the original article clearly marked as a retracted. The notice will also include the reason for the retraction and who is retracting the article. The original article will not be removed from online or print versions of the journal, but will be identified as a retracted article. Retractions will also be listed on the contents page.

Article Withdrawal

The corresponding author is allowed to withdraw the manuscript without paying any withdrawal penalty, if the author(s) requests a withdrawal of manuscript, within two days of submission. If the author(s) requests a withdrawal of manuscript, after the peer review process or in the production stage (Early Release or Ahead of publishing) or published online; then authors need to make a withdrawal penalty. Withdrawal of manuscripts is only allowed after withdrawal penalty (30% of the total fee) has been fully paid to the IJRIAR Editorial Office. As per the policy, we declare that the withdrawal charges are applicable in case of withdrawal (30% of the total fee).

If the author withdraws the article after acceptance or after publication of the manuscript and payment has also been made, there will be NO REFUND of the Article Processing Charge (APC) already paid. If a Manuscript is withdrawn over indexing issues, NO REFUND will be made.

Withdrawal form

If the author wish to withdraw paper from a journal, author needs to submit an "Article withdrawal Form" signed by all authors (or) the corresponding author of the manuscript stating the reasons for manuscript withdrawal. The form is available from the Editorial Office of the journal.

For any further information contact us at editor.riar@gmail.com

Refund Policy

Article Processing Charges are required after a manuscript has been accepted for publication. The journal will not issue refunds or cancellations of any kind after the acceptance of the manuscript.

Payment Confirmation

A payment confirmation will be sent through email to the corresponding author after the Article Processing Charges have been paid. You can hope to receive the confirmation within 2-3 working days after the payment has been processed.

Changes to authorship

Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such a change, the Editor must receive the following from the corresponding author: (a) the reason for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editor consider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of authors after the manuscript has been accepted. While the Editor considers the request, publication of the manuscript will be suspended. If the manuscript has already been published in an online issue, any requests approved by the Editor will result in a corrigendum.

Conflicts of Interest

All authors must disclose any actual or potential conflicts of interest, including any financial, personal or other relationships with other people or organizations, with the study. Authors should also disclose conflict of interest with products that compete with those mentioned in their manuscript.
