All published articles in APJCS should remain extant and intact. However, under exceptional circumstances involving plagiarism, errors in sample or data, data manipulation, ethical misconduct, duplicate submission or redundant publication, articles may be subject to retraction. The need for retraction will be decided by the Editor-in-Chief, but may be initiated at the request of the authors.
To retract an article, a notice of retraction will be published. This notice of retraction will include the title and name of the authors of the article, the reason for the retraction, and who is retracting the article; and be published online and be linked to the online copy of the article.
