Correction and retraction policies

Marketing and Management of Innovations is committed to maintaining the highest standards of accuracy, integrity, and reliability in published content. To uphold this commitment, a correction policy is in place to address and rectify any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies that may be identified in published articles.

The following types of corrections could be outlined:

  • Errata serve as a mechanism to rectify minor errors that may have inadvertently found their way into a published article. These errors, often of a typographical or factual nature, can range from simple typographical errors in text to factual inaccuracies in figures, tables, or citations. The purpose of issuing errata is to uphold the journal’s commitment to accuracy and integrity in scholarly publications. When such errors are identified, the journal takes prompt action to address them. Errata are typically published as separate notices, distinct from the original article, and are carefully linked to the source article. By issuing errata, the journal ensures that readers are made aware of any identified errors and that the correct information is readily accessible. This helps to maintain the credibility and reliability of the journal’s content, providing readers with the most accurate and trustworthy scholarly information. The errata process reflects the commitment to transparency and the pursuit of academic excellence within the scientific community.
  • Corrigenda. In cases where more substantial errors or inaccuracies are detected in a published article, such as those related to data, methodology, or other critical aspects of the research, the journal employs the use of corrigenda. These corrigenda are instrumental in rectifying errors that have a notable impact on the scientific credibility and integrity of the article. Corrigenda serve as a means to provide an updated version of the article, offering readers the necessary corrections to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the research. These corrections may encompass adjustments to data, clarifications of methods, or other substantial revisions that are required to align the content with the highest standards of scholarly rigor. Much like errata, corrigenda are distinct notices that are published separately from the original article. They serve as a clear and transparent means of conveying the necessary corrections to the readers. Additionally, they are thoughtfully linked to the original article, allowing readers to easily access the corrected version and ensuring that the historical context and evolution of the research are well-documented. The use of corrigenda underscores the journal’s unwavering commitment to accuracy, transparency, and the pursuit of excellence in scientific publishing. It signifies the dedication to upholding the highest standards in the dissemination of scholarly knowledge and maintaining the trust of the scientific community and its readership.
  • Retractions. In the realm of scholarly publishing, there are rare but crucial instances when an article must undergo the process of retraction. Retractions are a response to issues of severe gravity that pertain to an article’s content, ethical concerns, or the overall integrity of the research. Severe errors that fundamentally compromise the accuracy of research findings, ethical violations such as plagiarism, data fabrication, or ethical misconduct, and concerns regarding the integrity of the research process itself can necessitate the retraction of an article. The decision to retract an article is never taken lightly and is guided by the paramount commitment to uphold the highest standards of scientific integrity. Retracted articles, once the decision is made, undergo a defined process. They are expeditiously removed from the journal’s website, ensuring that they are no longer accessible to readers. Additionally, these retracted articles are conspicuously and unequivocally labeled as “retracted,” providing a clear indication of the status of the article and the reasons for its retraction. The process of retraction underscores the journal’s commitment to maintaining the credibility and trustworthiness of its content. It serves as a testament to the rigor and diligence applied to uphold the ethical and scientific standards that are the cornerstone of the journal’s mission. While retractions are rare, they stand as a crucial safeguard to ensure the accuracy and integrity of published research.

The core aspects of the Correction Process

  • Authors: Authors are encouraged to promptly notify the Editorial Office if they identify any errors in their published work. They should provide detailed information about the correction needed.
  • Editorial Office: Upon receipt of a correction request, the Editorial Office will evaluate the nature and severity of the error. If the request is substantiated, the appropriate correction type (erratum, corrigendum, or retraction) will be determined.
  • Review and Approval: All corrections are subject to review and approval by the Editorial Board and Editor-in-Chief to ensure the accuracy and appropriateness of the correction.
  • Publication: Approved corrections will be promptly published as a separate notice in the journal. The original article will be updated to include a link to the correction notice.

Retraction Policy

Marketing and Management of Innovations is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of scholarly integrity and accuracy. This Retraction Policy outlines the circumstances under which articles may be retracted and the meticulous process by which such retractions are managed.

Reasons for Retraction:

Articles may be retracted in exceptional cases where serious issues compromise the integrity and trustworthiness of the published research. These issues include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Ethical misconduct, such as data fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism.
  • Significant errors that fundamentally affect the validity or reliability of the research.
  • Duplication or redundant publication.
  • Honest errors refer to mistakes or inaccuracies in scholarly research, publications, or scientific work that occur unintentionally and without any malicious intent. These errors are typically the result of oversight, negligence, or genuine oversight rather than deliberate misconduct or unethical behavior.
  • Violations of research ethics or undisclosed conflicts of interest.

Retraction Process adheres to the following guidelines:

  • Thorough Investigation: An in-depth investigation is conducted to verify the reasons for retraction and ensure their validity.
  • Ethical and Guideline Compliance: The retraction process strictly adheres to established ethical standards and guidelines for scholarly publishing.
  • Transparent Notification: When an article is retracted, it is accompanied by a clear and transparent notification that outlines the specific reasons for retraction and the concerns that led to this decision.
  • Prompt Removal: The retracted article is promptly removed from the journal’s website to ensure it is no longer accessible to readers.
  • Labeling as Retracted: The retracted article is distinctly marked as “retracted,” providing a conspicuous signal to readers about its status and the reasons for its retraction.

The Authors should complete the Form to retract the article.

Author Responsibilities. Authors are responsible for promptly informing the journal of any errors or issues in their published work. They should cooperate in providing necessary information to implement corrections.

Reader Responsibilities. Readers are encouraged to report any errors, concerns, or suspicions about the content of articles to the Editorial Office. Their input plays a crucial role in maintaining the journal’s integrity.

Author Rights and Appeals. Authors have the right to appeal correction or retraction decisions. Their appeals will be considered by the Editorial Office and Editorial Board. This process allows authors to voice their concerns and present additional insights into correction or retraction proceedings.

In the pursuit of fairness and accountability, the journal recognizes the importance of providing authors with the avenue to appeal correction decisions. The appeals process is designed to ensure that authors have the opportunity to voice their concerns and provide additional insights into the correction proceedings. Authors who believe that a correction decision may not fully address their concerns or who hold a different perspective on the correction are afforded the right to submit an appeal. This process is integral to maintaining open and transparent communication between authors and the journal, safeguarding the interests of all parties involved.

The appeals process follows a well-defined path:

  1. Submission of Appeals: Authors who wish to appeal a correction decision must submit their appeal to the Editorial Office. The appeal should be comprehensive and clearly outline the reasons behind the disagreement with the correction decision.
  2. Editorial Office Review: The appeal is first reviewed by the Editorial Office, where the concerns raised by the author are carefully examined. This initial review ensures that the appeal is complete and falls within the scope of the appeals process.
  3. Editorial Board Evaluation: If the Editorial Office determines that the appeal is valid, it is then forwarded to the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board conducts a thorough and impartial evaluation of the appeal, considering the concerns raised by the author and the original correction decision.
  4. Consideration and Decision: The Editorial Board deliberates on the appeal and makes a well-informed decision. This decision may involve upholding the original correction, modifying it, or potentially revoking the correction decision.
  5. Transparent Communication: The author is promptly informed of the Editorial Board’s decision, along with a detailed explanation of the rationale behind the outcome. The journal is committed to ensuring that the appeals process is transparent and accountable.

The appeals process is an essential component of the journal’s commitment to fairness and integrity. It provides authors with the opportunity to present their case and contribute to the ongoing improvement of the correction process. The ultimate goal is to achieve resolutions that align with the principles of scholarly accuracy and ethical conduct, promoting a robust and reliable scientific literature.

Transparency and Accountability. The journal is committed to transparency and accountability in all retraction matters. It ensures that readers are informed about editorial decisions and the reasons behind them.

Article Replacement. A retracted article is typically replaced by a correction or retraction notice once an investigation is completed. The retracted article serves to maintain the historical context and evolution of the research.

Article Removal. The Publisher reserves the right to remove an article or content from the journal’s website and online databases in cases where it is defamatory, infringes on legal rights, is subject to a court order, or poses a serious public health risk. In such situations, metadata (title and authors) will be retained, with a note explaining the removal for legal reasons.

Retracted papers are not expunged from the digital journal edition but are instead maintained on the website. These retained articles are accompanied by a clear retraction notice, following the guidelines set forth by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) (COPE Council. COPE Guidelines: Retraction Guidelines). When a reader clicks on a link to access a retracted article, a notice regarding the retraction is prominently displayed on the screen. Furthermore, a link is provided to direct the reader to a page where they can still access the article’s content. Simultaneously, a watermark bearing the label “retracted article” is superimposed onto the text of the article.

Addressing Issues After Publication. The journal is committed to thoroughly investigating any issues brought up by authors and readers. Responses from authors to comments are always welcomed. Depending on the nature and severity of the problem, the journal may undertake corrective measures or retractions as needed.

To withdraw the article, the Journal suggests to follow the instructions of the European Association of Scientific Editors.

The Journal issues a retraction notice as a distinct entity in both the printed and online versions of the subsequent journal release. In the table of contents for that issue, a separate notation is included to signify the retraction.
