All content published in journal of cellular cancer is permanently published, the versions of all articles that have passed peer review are permanently archived as part of BM-Publisher.
Authors can revise, change and update their articles by publishing new versions, which are added to the article’s history; however, the individual versions, once published, cannot be altered or withdrawn and are permanently available on the Journal website. journal of cellular cancer participates in the CrossMark scheme, a multi-publisher initiative that has developed a standard way for readers to locate the current version of a piece of content as published by BM-Publisher. By applying the CrossMark policies, journal of cellular cancer is committed to maintaining the content it publishes and to alerting readers to changes if and when they occur.
Clicking on the Cross Mark logo (at the top of each journal of cellular cancer article) will give you the current status of an article and direct you to the latest published version.
This action is reserved for articles that are seriously flawed and so the findings or conclusions cannot be relied upon. Articles may be retracted for several reasons, including:
Research misconduct (data fabrication)
Duplicate or overlapping publication
Fraudulent use of data
For any retracted article, the reason for retraction and who is instigating the retraction will be clearly stated in the Retraction notice. The retraction notice will be linked to the retracted article (which usually remains on the site) and the article will be clearly marked as retracted (including the PDF).
The removal of an article would only be undertaken where legal limitations have been placed upon the publisher, copyright holder or author(s). The bibliographic information for a removed article will be retained on the site along with information regarding the circumstances that led to its removal.
Under rare circumstances, for example, if false or inaccurate data have been published that, if acted upon, pose a serious health risk, the original incorrect version(s) may be removed and a corrected version published. The reason for this partial removal would be clearly stated on the latest version.
