Article Retraction & Withdrawal
Corrections and retractions
When errors are identified in published articles, the publisher will consider what action is required and may consult the editors and the authors’ institution(s).
Errors by the authors may be corrected by a corrigendum and errors by the publisher by an erratum.
If there are errors that significantly affect the conclusions or there is evidence of misconduct, this may require retraction or an expression of concern following the COPE Retraction Guidelines.
All authors will be asked to agree to the content of the notice.
An author name change after publication will be made to the article and any citing articles published by GMJ without requiring documentation, a corrigendum notice, or informing any other authors, following a request to the journal or the Research Integrity team. Authors affiliated with the U.S. national laboratories may ask their institution to request this change on their behalf.
