Clarifications, corrections and retractions
Science X is committed to achieving the highest standards of accuracy and will never knowingly publish material that is inaccurate. While we may make mistakes, we will correct them.
We typically correct minor errors without special notice. If we need to clarify or correct an article, we'll make the change to the article and add a note.
When incorrect or misleading information is published on social media, Science X will correct it in a timely manner by publishing a new status or post. If it is possible to edit the original post to note the error and correct the information, this is preferred. Once the information has been corrected, the incorrect post may be deleted.
Articles that have serious errors and show proof of misleading and/or libellous content, should be considered for retraction. It is always preferable to correct an article rather than unpublish it.
This policy only applies to Science X original content, including, but not limited to news, blogs and feature articles. Any corrections to licensed or third party content are the responsibility of the publisher.
If you have spotted an error, please contact us or use 'Feedback to editors' button at the end of each article.
