Withdrawal Policy

Rev Rene is committed to upholding the integrity of the literature and is committed to publishing, when applicable, Erratum, Expressions of Concern or Retraction Notices in accordance with the mechanism the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Retraction Guidelines which can be accessed at COPE - Retratction Guidelines..

The COPE retraction guidelines assist in conducting the process of correcting the literature and alerting readers of manuscripts that contain flawed data or content whose results or conclusions are unreliable. Rev Rene Editors may consider retracting a manuscript if there is evidence that the research findings are unreliable due to invention or falsification of data; when plagiarism, self-plagiarism, redundant or duplicate publication is characterized; when information or materials are retracted without authorization for use; when Copyright infringement is present; when unethical research is characterized; when peer review is compromised or manipulated; when conflicts of interest affect the interpretation or recommendation of editors and advisors.

Withdrawals may be requested by the authors of a manuscript, by an institution, by readers, or by the editors at any stage of the editorial process. Reports or communications pointing out problems in a publication will be analyzed by Rev Rene's Board of Editors. All interested parties will be previously communicated about the subject of the investigation. The evidence of serious conduct of authors will lead to the removal of the manuscript from the evaluation process. By decision of the Board of Editors, Rev Rene may refuse to receive future submissions from the authors involved. Editors or ad hoc consultants with evidence of misconduct will be permanently removed from their functions. If the Editorial Board confirms the allegations of published manuscripts, authors will be asked to correct errors or mistakes, or may consider withdrawing from publication.

Rev Rene also adopts Crossmark, a tool that flags any substantial change that may affect the citation or interpretation of the results reported in an article, allowing readers to locate the current version of the content.
