IJPE champions comprehensive and thorough publishing for researchers and libraries, recognizing that this goal is best achieved through the publication of reliable and groundbreaking research articles. However, in instances where a study or article needs to be withdrawn, the International Association of Educators' publishing policies stipulate that both the author(s) and the editorial board share certain responsibilities. These responsibilities are outlined below:
If the author(s) finds a mistake in their study which is unpublished or in early release or review process, they are obliged to cooperate with the editor of the journal during the withdrawal process.
The author(s) who wants to withdraw their study which is in review process is obliged to fill in the "Artical Withdral Form", scan it with signature(s) on it and send the form via e-mail to the editorial board at firstname.lastname@example.org. The editorial board will return to the author(s) within a week, evaluating the request for withdrawal.
The papers the copyright of which is transferred to IJPE during the submission process cannot be submitted to other journals for review unless they are approved for withdrawal.
The editorial board of IJPE holds the responsibility of starting an investigation about a study if a suspicion arises that the study includes plagiarism and/or it has copyright issues.
If the editorial board detects breach of copyright or plagiarism for the manuscripts in review process, they retract the study from review and cancel its review process by sending a detailed document to the author(s) showing what was detected and where in the study.
If the editorial board detects breach of copyright or plagiarism for the articles published in an issue or in early release, the retraction and reporting procedures are applied according to statements indicated below in 1 week at the latest:
The study which is detected to have plagiarism is labelled as "Retraction:" in the electronic environment.
Furthermore, if there are any publishers or editorial boards through whom the author(s) had their studies published before, the editorial board of IJPE can make suggestions to these parties that the published studies of the author(s) who has plagiarised should be reviewed for validity and reliability or be retracted.
The author(s) retains the right to appeal against the reports produced by the editorial and scientific boards upon the completion of the review process at Education and Science. The author(s) should send their reasons for appeal in a scientific manner and by showing references to email@example.com. The appeal will be examined by the editorial board within one month the latest (the field editor and reviewers of the manuscript may be asked to share their opinions about the appeal) and the author(s) will be informed of any positive or negative result. If the result is positive, the editorial board assigns new reviewers that have expertise in the subject of the manuscript and re-starts the review process.
