In order to maintain the integrity of the scholarly publication, Rivera follows a very transparent article correction policy and reserves the right to retract articles at any stage of the process, given the nature of the correction.
Articles are retracted during one or all of the following instances:
While Rivera reserves the right to retract articles, the final decision lies with the handling Editor or the Editor-in-Chief, who will look into the matter to understand its nature and will ultimately make the decision. Thus, we do not guarantee that an article after correcting the errors will be reconsidered for publication in any of our journals.
For significant errors, the corrections will be published following consent of the author and the Editor. However, for minor errors, such as grammatical errors, which do not significantly affect the integrity, the article will not be considered for correction.
When the corrections are related to the article following the peer-review, they come under the following categories:
Refers to the errors made by the Publisher during editing/typesetting or production of the article, which significantly affects the quality and the integrity of the article or author/publisher.
Refers to the notification of the errors made by the author. These errors significantly affect the content of the article and/or the reputation of the journal and authors. While submitting the corrigendum, all authors must sign the corrigendum or Letter to the Editor, informing about the corrections and its impact on the article. However, if one or more of the co-authors do not agree, the Editor holds the power of implementing an amendment following consultation with the concerned reviewers.
All authors must sign the retraction, highlighting the errors and the consequence on the article or any specific section of the article. However, if one or more of the coauthors disagree, the Editor will then implement the amendment after consulting with the concerned reviewers, stating the dissenting coauthor.
Refers to the notification by authors of addition of peer-reviewed materials to the article. Addenda are published when the author omits any significant information that might have clarified the content of the paper to reader or addition of any section following any or some of the reader's requests. Addendum is published following the peer-review of the article and the Editor's consent.
