Post-publication Corrections and Suggestions
IJELLH is a member of Crossmark and we provide Crossmark button which gives our reader a current status of a published manuscript. In Crossmark, there are two categories of updates: minor and major changes.
a- Minor changes
If there is a minor change like the correction in formatting, spelling or article versioning, this will be considered as a minor change and the Crossmark button will reflect this article in the current one.
b- Major changes
If there is a major change in the manuscript like change in the author's name or retraction of an article.
I. Article retraction
Infringements of professional ethical codes, such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent or fabricated use of data, major error (eg, miscalculation or experimental error) or the like similar incidences, the article may be retracted. Occasionally, a retraction will be used to correct major errors in submission or publication. The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper attribution to previous sources or disclosure to the editor, permission to republish, or justification (i.e., cases of redundant publication)
The original article is retained unchanged except for a watermark which is included on each page of the article PDF indicating that it has been “retracted”.
Notice of retraction will be served to the correspondent author with a clear information of Title, Issue, and Volume including the link of the published article.

II. Article replacement
Authors of the original paper at times may wish to retract the flawed original and replace it with a corrected version. Under such circumstances, the above procedures for retraction will be followed with the difference that the article retraction notice will contain a link to the corrected re-published article together with a history of the document.
