Post- Publication Corrections Policy

All the Corrections made to a published article in UJPR will be with the authorization of the Editor-in-Chief. Editor-in-Chief will decide the magnitude of the corrections. Minor corrections are made directly to the original article. For major changes below cases are applicable.

Erratum

An error introduced by the publisher that affects the integrity of the version of record, the reputation of the authors, or the reputation of journal, is termed as Erratum.
An Erratum is a statement by the authors of the original paper that briefly describes any correction(s) resulting from errors or omissions. Any effects on the conclusions of the paper should be noted. The corrected article is not removed from the online journal, but notice of erratum is given. The Erratum is made freely available to all readers and is linked to the corrected article

Addendum

An addendum is a notification of an addition of information to an article. Addenda are published when the editors decide that the addendum is crucial to the reader’s understanding of a significant part of the published contribution. Addenda include Editorial Expression of Concern, which is an editorial statement alerting our readership to serious concerns with the published paper. Editorial Expression of Concern are typically updated with another amendment once further information is available.

Addenda do not contradict the original publication, but if the author inadvertently omitted significant information available at the time, this material can be published as an addendum. Addenda may be peer reviewed, according to journal policy, and are normally subject to oversight by the editors of the journal. Addenda relating to the article content are published only rarely and only when the journal editors decide that an addendum is crucial to the reader’s understanding of a significant part of the published article. All addenda are linked to the original article to which they relate.

We do respectfully invite authors, co-authors, reviewers, and our valuable readers to please advise us on any published matters, including its layout, format, texts, figures, and tables, and most importantly the subject, and content at any sections of a manuscript, especially the results and discussion, as well as the conclusions. Please email us at editor@ujpr.org with the copy of the manuscript DOI number as the subject line of your email. The section editor of the published article will review your comments and discuss them with the corresponding author and peer reviewers, if required. The final result of these investigations will be discussed with the Editor-in-Chief to make the best action. It might be in a range of a logical private reply to you, publishing of a note, or a short communication on that article at the journal, correction of parts of the article with or without public announcement, and in some very exceptional circumstances the removal of the article from website. An email listing all considerations and criteria for the final decision will be sent to the corresponding author and the reviewers.
