Articles Retraction & Withdraw

In general, it is a principle of scientific communication that the Editor of a journal or proceedings is solely and independently responsible for deciding which articles can be published. In making these decisions, Editors are guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by legal requirements related to libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The result of this principle is the importance of scientific archives as permanent historical records of scholarship transactions. Articles that have been published should remain in existence, precise and unaltered as far as possible. However, circumstances may sometimes arise where a published article must be retracted or even deleted. Such actions should not be taken lightly and can only occur in exceptional circumstances. In all cases, our archives at the Journal of Casuarina will retain all versions of the article, including those that are retracted or deleted.

This policy has been designed to address these issues and takes into account best practices within the academic and library communities. As standards evolve and change, we will revisit this issue and welcome all input from the library and academic community. We believe that this issue requires international standards and will actively lobby for various information to establish international standards and best practices that can be adapted by the information and publishing industry.

Retraction of Articles

Articles may be retracted for scientific misconduct in cases such as multiple submissions, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, or fraudulent use of data. A statement signed by the authors must be submitted before the article can be retracted. Consent from all authors of the paper is required before the retraction can be published. The retraction notice will be published and the link to the original article clearly be marked as retracted. In addition, the notice will also include the reason for the retraction and who retracted the article. The original article will not be removed from the online version and the print version of the journal but will be identified as retracted. The retraction will also be listed on the content page.

Article Withdraw

Article retraction is strongly discouraged and is only used in exceptional circumstances for an earlier version of an article that has been accepted for publication but has not yet been formally published but may already appear online. The version may contain errors, may have been posted twice by mistake or may violate the journal's publishing ethical guidelines (e.g. double submission, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, improper use of data, etc). In such situations, especially in case of legal/ethical violations or incorrect/inaccurate data that may pose a risk of harm if used, it may be decided to withdraw the initial version of the article from our electronic platform. Withdrawal is done by deleting the article content (both HTML and PDF versions) and replacing it with an HTML and PDF page stating that the article has been withdrawn in accordance with Indonesian Journal Publisher's article withdrawal policy along with a link to the policy.

As a side note, if the author owns the copyright to his/her article, it does not mean that he/she has the right to retract it after publication. The integrity of the published scientific record is paramount and this policy on retraction and withdrawal still applies in such cases.

Article Deletion

In a very limited number of cases, published articles may need to be removed from our online platform. This will only occur where an article is clearly libelous or infringes the legal rights of others, or where the article is, or we have good reason to suspect it is, the subject of a court order, or where the article if acted upon, could pose a serious health risk. In such circumstances, although the metadata (i.e. title and author information) of the article will be retained, the text will be replaced with a screen indicating that the article has been removed for legal reasons.

Article Replacement

In cases where the article, if acted upon, may pose a serious health risk, the authors of the original paper may wish to retract the original document and replace it with a corrected version. In such circumstances, the above removal procedure will be followed with the difference that the article retraction notice will contain the revised and republished link along with the document history.
