Rev Rene in Scielo
Rev Rene adopts COPE's retraction guidelines to guide the process of correcting the literature and alerting readers to manuscripts that contain flawed data or content whose results or conclusions are unreliable. The editors of Rev Rene may consider retracting a manuscript if there is evidence that the research results are unreliable due to fabrication or falsification of data, when there is the characterization of plagiarism, self-plagiarism, redundant or duplicate publication, when the article depicts information or materials without authorization for use, in the face of copyright infringement, when there is the characterization of unethical research, in the face of compromised or manipulated peer review, and in the face of conflicts of interest that affect the interpretation or recommendation of editors and consultants.
Retractions may be requested by the authors of a manuscript, an institution, readers, or editors at any stage of the editorial process. Rev Rene's Board of Editors will review complaints or communications that point out problems with a publication. All interested parties will be previously informed about the object of the investigation. Proof of serious conduct by authors will lead to the removal of the manuscript from the evaluation process. By decision of the Board of Editors, Rev Rene may refuse to receive future submissions from the authors involved. Ad hoc editors or consultants with evidence of misconduct will be permanently removed from their duties. If the Board of Editors confirms the claims of published manuscripts, authors will be asked to correct occasional errors or mistakes or may consider retracting the publication.
