Withdrawing a paper after it has been accepted for publication is generally discouraged. However, very occasionally there may be circumstances that require a paper to be withdrawn. It can only occur under exceptional circumstances. such as discovering significant errors or misconduct in the research or if the authors are no longer able to proceed with publication due to unforeseen circumstances. In all cases, our official archives at the National Library of Serbia and
concurrently in the Repository of SCIndeks – The Serbian Citation Index will retain all article versions, including retracted or otherwise removed articles.
Withdrawal Before Acceptance: Manuscripts may be withdrawn within 5 days of initial submission for any reason.
Withdrawal after acceptance: Manuscripts may be withdrawn only for justified reasons, such as violations of professional ethical codes, errors in scientific content, multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, or fraudulent use of data.
Withdrawn means that the article content (in PDF) is removed and replaced with a PDF stating that the article has been withdrawn with a link to the current policy document.
Retraction of Article
In rare cases, when the interpretation or conclusion of the article is significantly violated, when it is a violation of ethical principles, multiple submissions, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, false representation of the author, etc., it may be necessary to withdraw the published articles.
Retraction notices are indexed linked to the original article. The original article is watermarked as retracted and the title is prefixed with “Retracted Article”
Extremely rarely it may be necessary to retrieve an article from an online database. This will only happen in cases where the material is obviously defamatory, violates the legal rights of others, is the subject of a court order or where there is a reasonable expectation that it will be, or where acting on the article might seriously endanger one’s health. In these circumstances, while the metadata (Title and Authors) will be retained, the text will be replaced with a screen indicating the article has been removed for legal reasons.
In cases where the article, due to the actions that could follow if the knowledge presented in it, is applied, might pose a major health risk the authors of the original article may wish to withdraw the defective original and replace it with a corrected version. In these situations the procedures for retraction will be followed and the database retraction notice will publish a link to the corrected re-published article.
Changes to authorship
It is necessary for the authors to determine the number and sequence of authors in the paper before sending the paper to the Sanamed journal. Any deletion, addition or change of author names in the authorship list should be done before the manuscript is accepted and only if approved by the journal editor. If the authors still want changes, they need to provide the editor with the following information: (a) reason for changing the list of authors and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of adding or removing an author, this includes confirmation of the addition or removal of the author.
Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editor consider adding, deleting, or rearranging authors after manuscript acceptance. While the editor is considering the request, publication of the manuscript will be suspended. If the manuscript has already been published in an online edition, all requests approved by
the editor will result in a correction.
