Article Withdrawal Policy

The author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources, and editors and reviewers spend a great deal of time processing submitted manuscripts and works invested by the publisher. For attention, before the author submits the manuscript through our OJS, the author is obliged to approve the checklist that we provide.

  • If the author requests the withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished by paying $100 USD per manuscript.
  • If the author requests the withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is accepted for publication; the author will be punished by paying $150 USD per manuscript.
  • If the author requests the withdrawal of his/her article when the article has been published; the author will be punished by paying $250 USD per manuscript. Withdrawing after publication means that the article content (HTML and PDF) is deleted and replaced with an HTML page, and the PDF simply states that the article has been withdrawn.
  • If the author doesn't agree to pay the penalty, the manuscript isn't deleted or removed. The author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal.
  • If the author request to withdraw a manuscript, an official letter signed by the corresponding author and all authors must be sent to the Editorial journal e-mail.
