Retraction of Submissions

Home Retraction


The papers published in the International Journal of Arts Architecture & Design will be considered retracted from the publication if:

  • There is clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g., data fabrication) or honest error (e.g., miscalculation or experimental error)
  • The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross referencing, permission, or justification (i.e., cases of redundancy)
  • Plagiarism is proven.
  • The research is unethical.

The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) which can be accessed at
