Article Withdrawal

PEGEGOG values holistic and exhaustive publishing for researchers and libraries and acknowledges that this can be realized by publishing reliable and original research articles. In the case that a study or article will be withdrawn, the author(s) and the editorial board will share some responsibilities as required by the publishing policies of PEGEGOG. These responsibilities are listed 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If the author(s) finds a mistake in their study which is unpublished or in early release or review process, they are obliged to cooperate with the editor of the journal during the withdrawal process.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 send a mail about withdrawal. The editorial board will return to the author(s) within a week, evaluating the request for withdrawal.

The studies the copyright of which is transferred to PEGEGOG during the submission process cannot be submitted to other journals for review unless they are approved for withdrawal.

The editorial board of PEGEGOG 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 "Retracted:" in the electronic environment.
  • Instead of the Abstractand Full Text, the reasons why the study has been retracted, detailed evidence and the statements (if any) of the affiliated institution about the issue are published electronically.
  • The study is announced as "Retracted" on the main page of the journal's web page.
  • The study is included in the contents of the first issue of the journal to be published after the date of retraction as "Retraction: Article Title", and from its first page onwards the reasons why it has been retracted and the original citations are shared with the public and researchers.
  • The institutions that the author(s) is affiliated with are informed about the retraction.
  • The retraction reports indicated above are sent to the institutions where the journal is indexed.

Furthermore, if there are any publishers or editorial boards through whom the author(s) had their studies published before, the editorial board of PEGEGOG can make suggestions to these parties that the published studies of the author(s) who has plagiarized should be reviewed for validity and reliability or be retracted.
