The editorial team of ISSRA Papers welcomes complaints/ appeals as they provide an opportunity for improvement. Please write your complaint with the journal volume number, issue number, research paper title, and page number to Editor ISSRA Papers at firstname.lastname@example.org, and a team member will respond as quickly as possible.
Right to Appeal
Author(s) has the right to appeal an editorial decision on his/ her paper. If you wish to appeal a decision, write or email Editor ISSRA Papers explaining why the decision should be reversed. If reviewer reports were included with the previous rejection letter or email, the criticism would be responded to accordingly. All appeals are sent to the journal's Editor, who will assess your research paper and details of the peer review process before a final decision. We try to manage appeals as quickly as possible, but they can be complex, so we request the author(s) to be patient and cooperate. As with any complaint, we will acknowledge receipt and keep you informed during the appeal process.
While our editorial team strives to ensure that every research paper published in ISSRA Papers is entirely accurate, there are instances where problems would be raised after publication. These may fall into the following categories and result in different responses:
- Where the production process has introduced an error in the paper, we will publish an Erratum.
- Where the author(s) notices a mistake, we have not introduced, we will publish a Corrigendum.
- Where there are issues that may affect the record's validity, such as suspected image manipulation, but the author(s) is not willing to publish a Corrigendum, we will publish an Expression of Concern.
- Where major issues are affecting the validity of the scientific record, such as duplicate publication or proven plagiarism, we will publish a Retraction.
In all such cases, our editorial team collaborates with the author(s) to determine the best option from available responses. If a third party raises the issue, all concerned are also informed.
Errata, Corrigenda, Expressions of Concern, and Retractions are free to view and digitally linked to the original published article on our website and third-party websites that collect our metadata.
If anyone suspects a post-publication issue, we request them to contact the editorial team of ISSRA Papers immediately, providing sufficient details to undertake an investigation.
ISSRA Papers follows Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines regarding complaints and appeals.
