Retraction, Withdrawal and Digital Achiving Policy
Quantum Journal of Environmental Studies (QJOES) follow the COPE Retraction Guidelines, whereby journal editors should consider retraction 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 experimental error); the findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper crossreferencing, permission or justification (i.e., cases of redundant publication); as well as plagiarism and unethical research cases detected.
In withdrawal policy by QJOES journal, authors are allowed to withdraw his or her article that had been submitted to this publication. In order to do so, the corresponding author is required to agree on the terms: (a) withdrawal charges of USD 300; (b) explaining his or her attention of withdrawal; and (c) the withdrawal process took 30 working days.
The editorial board is striving to digitally archive all published articles, especially in National Library of Malaysia. All published articles by QJOES will be deposited under Deposit of Library Material Act 1986 to Depositori PNM databased.
