Few of the authors request withdrawal of the manuscript from the publication process after submission or after publication. In some instances, the request for withdrawal is made when the manuscript is only a few days away from publication in the journal. This may cause time waste by the editors, reviewers, and editorial staff.
All authors including corresponding and co-authors should confirm the number of authors, authorship, approval, and integrity of the manuscript before submission. In case of any differences of opinion, address the concerns of all the authors before submitting the manuscript for publication.
Authors should follow the publication ethics details included in our Publication ethics.
The manuscript is appropriately withdrawn from any previous publisher (if submitted). It is unacceptable to withdraw a manuscript from a journal because it is being accepted by another journal. Before submitting the manuscript authors should carefully check the facts and data presented in the manuscripts are accurate and error-free. All authors need to agree for publishing the articles in a specific journal before submission.
Manuscript withdrawal charges
The author is allowed to withdraw the manuscript without paying any withdrawal penalty, if the author(s) requests a withdrawal of the manuscript, within 48 hours of submission. If the author(s) requests a withdrawal of the manuscript, after the peer review process or in the production stage (Early Release or Ahead of publishing) or published online; then the authors need to make a withdrawal penalty. Journal Editorial Office will provide the corresponding author with a formal letter of Manuscript Withdrawal. Withdrawal of manuscripts is only allowed after the withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the Editorial Office. As per the policy, we declare that the withdrawal charges are applicable in case of withdrawal.
