The process for handling cases requiring corrections, retractions, and editorial expressions of concern

Errors in published papers may be identified requiring publication of a correction in the form of a corrections or errata.

A correction should follow the following rules:
- the correction must be published as soon as possible, with the requested changes and the quotation of the original article;
- the correction publication will have numbered page, which is included in an electronic table of contents to ensure proper indexing;
- previous electronic versions should mention that there are newer versions of the article.
- the quote must be the latest version.

When there is a serious doubt about the honesty or integrity of a published article, the Editor-in-Chief will be notified. It is not the Editor in Chief's responsibility to carry out the investigation or make a determination, but the Editor in Chief may choose to publish an expression of concern over aspects of the conduct or integrity of the work.

If the authors of the article decide to retract the article, they should submit a retraction text that will state the reasons for the withdrawal. If the authors do not want or are unable to do so, the publisher may be the sole author of the withdrawal or expression of concern. The retracted items will remain publicly available but will be labeled as withdrawn items.
