Correction Policy

a) Before publication

PDF proofs of final paper are sent to the author(s) for proofreading and corrections are done before the publication of article.

b) Post publication

Depending on the situation, the corrections can be done if the publication is seriously affected with regard to the accuracy of information, especially if it is the result of an honest mistake.

The appropriate corrections are possible if one of these issues occur:

1. A small part of text, data, or other sensitive information appears to be inaccurate or seriously misleading.

2. The list of authors or contributors is wrong (e.g., the deserving authors have been omitted or someone who does not meet authorship criteria has been included).

3. Inaccurate author(s) Name or Surname due to misspelling.

Therefore, the authors are encouraged to verify and/or approve the papers immediately after the publication of new JOMR issue. If the author(s) notice any mistakes or inaccuracies left they are welcome to inform the Editorial Assistant. However, the Editor will make the final decision on whether a correction is necessary.

c) Erratum

An erratum is required when a significant change to an article's textual content or metadata is required following this article's publication online.

Erratum is not required in the case of typographical or a grammar inaccuracy, or errors committed in the listing of references.

Erratum statement must include details of the original paper it corresponds to (full citation data), DOI number of original article, its own unique DOI number, as well as a description of the changes made.

Withdrawal Policy

Author(s) are not permitted to withdraw the submission. However, author(s) should be aware that withdrawal may result in a waste of time, effort and journal resources for Editors, reviewers and Editorial staff. Therefore, withdrawal is considered when the following conditions are met:

- Articles have not been published yet and represent an early version of manuscripts. It means the review can be still ongoing or article was accepted for the publication, but not yet formally published and will not yet have the complete volume, issue, and page information.

- Articles that may violate publication ethics, such as accidental duplicates of already published articles or have been submitted twice by mistake, false claims of authorship, misleading use of data, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or other violations determined by the Editors.

To withdraw an article, the Correspondent Author must send a formal request with a statement of the reasons for the withdrawal, this way informing the Editorial Assistant.

Retractions Policy

JOMR retraction policy is based, on the guidelines and standards developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Retraction Guidelines, ICMJE's recommendations on Corrections, Retractions, Republications and Version Control, as well as the U.S. National Library of Medicine policy on Errata, Retractions, and Other Linked Citations in PubMed).

The retraction may be initiated by the Editors of a journal, or by the author(s) of the article. Articles may be retracted when the following issues occur:

- There is a significant scientific error (such as miscalculations or experimental errors) that would invalidate the main conclusions of the article, such as when there is clear evidence that the conclusions are inaccurate due to misconduct (such as falsification of data) or honest error (e.g. misunderstanding, lack of data or information).

- Article contains violations of publication ethics, such as multiple submissions, false claims of authorship, misleading use of data, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, and etc.

It is important to note that just because authors retain the copyright for an article this does not mean they automatically have the right to retract it after publication.

The integrity of the published scientific record is critical, and COPE's Retraction Guidelines still apply in such cases.
