Retractions and Corrections
1. Editors shouldconsider retracting a publication if they have clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct(e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation or experimentalerror); the findings have previously been published elsewhere without propercross-referencing, permission or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication);it constitutes plagiarism; it reports unethical research.
2. Notices ofretraction should be linked to the retracted article wherever possible (i.e. inall electronic versions); clearly identify the retracted article (e.g. byincluding the title and authors in the retraction heading); be publishedpromptly to minimize harmful effects from misleading publications.
3. Editors shouldconsider issuing a correction if a small portion of an otherwise reliablepublication proves to be misleading (especially because of honest error); theauthor / contributor list is incorrect (i.e. a deserving author has beenomitted or somebody who does not meet authorship criteria has been included).
