Corrections are published upon request and after editorial review. Changes to published articles that affect the interpretation and conclusion of the article, but do not fully invalidate the article, will, at the Editor(s)’ discretion, be corrected via publication of a Correction that is indexed and linked to the original article. On rare
occasions, when the interpretation or conclusion of an article is substantially undermined, it may be necessary for published articles to be retracted. Retractions are published upon request of authors or their institutions and may also be published by the Journal following a determination of scientific
misconduct. Retraction notices are indexed and linked to the original article. The original article is watermarked as retracted and the title is prefixed with “Retracted Article”. Notes of Concern are published in response to editorial concerns relating to scientific or publishing misconduct by authors or reviewers or to alert the scientific community of an ongoing investigation.
