review or publication process getting delayed at our end
if their manuscripts have been published in other journals and they kept us in dark that manuscripts have been submitted to our journals only (Authors should strictly follow the rule that manuscripts should be submitted only to one journal)
if their manuscripts have been rejected by us
any other reason
In all such cases, our policy is that authors will be allowed to withdraw only when their manuscripts have been rejected by us and then all copyright will be of authors.
If authors withdraw without our permission, then we will inform to their university as it is illegal and unethical.
If authors request us for withdrawal except for reason (iv), then we can allow them to withdraw on payment of Rs. 5000/- total for Indians and US $ 300 total for International authors. We are taking these payments because we pay to reviewers as review process starts on the next day of submission of manuscript. Many times authors inform of withdrawal when they have received the acceptance or the manuscript is on the final stage of publication which is very wrong and therefore authors should pay withdrawal fees otherwise we will lodge a complaint to their university.
