All the Corrections made to a published article will be with the authorization of the editor of the joumal. Editors will decide the magnitude of the corrections. Minor corrections are made directly to the original article. For major changes below cases are applicable.

Erratum. An error introduced by the publisher that affects the integrity of the version of record, the reputation of the authors, or the reputation of joumal, is termed as Erratum.

An Erratum is a statement by the authors of the original paper that briefly describes any correction(s) resulting from errors or omissions. Any effects on the conclusions of the paper should be noted. The corrected article is not removed from the online joumal, but notice of erratum is given. The Erratum is made freely available to all readers and is linked to the corrected article

Addendum. An addendum is a notification of an addition of information to an article. Addendum are published when the editors decide that the addendum is crucial to the reader's understanding of a significant part of the published contribution. Addendum include Editorial Expression of Concem, which is an editorial statement alerting our readership to serious concerns with the published paper. Editorial Expression of Concem are typically updated with another amendment once further information is available.

Addendum do not contradict the original publication, but if the author inadvertently omitted significan! inforrnation available at the time, this material can be published as an addendum. Addendum may be peer reviewed, according to joumal policy, and are normally subject to oversight by the editors of the journal. Addendum relating to the article content are published only rarely and only when the joumal editors decide that an addendum is crucial to the reader's understanding of a significant part of the published article. All addendum are linked to the original article to which they relate.

Retraction. A Retraction is a notice that the paper should not be regarded as par! of the scientific literatura. Retractions are issued if there is clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, this can be as a result of misconduct or honest error. Retraction takes place if:

  1. The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper referencing, permission or justificati on.
  2. lf the work is plagiarized
  3. lf the work reports unethical research.

To protect the integrity of the record, the retracted article is not removed from the online journal, but notice of retraction is given, also it is made freely available to all readers, and is linked to the retracted article. Retractions can be published by the authors when they have discovered substantial scientific errors; in other cases, the Editors or Publisher may conclude that retraction is appropriate. In all cases, the retraction indicates the reason for the action and who is responsible for the decision. lf a retraction is made without the unanimous agreement of the authors, that is also noted.

In rare and extreme cases involving legal infringement, the Publisher may redact or remove an article. Bibliographic information about the article will be retained to ensure the integrity of the scientific record.
