Algorithm of retraction of an article from a scientific journal (adapted from COPE.).
The result of the retraction is the confirmation by the editors of the journal that it contains either fragments, but also fragments of borrowings. This does not negate the rights of editors to conduct procedures. The purpose of the punishment is to correct the data of the literature and their reliability, and not to punish the authors who “behave badly”. It is recommended to receive written explanations from all co-authors. It is likely that some of the authors have become complicit in plagiarism out of ignorance, unintentionally. This fact can be reflected in the text accompanying retraction. In some cases, significant self-plagiarism may be limited to correction procedures (as agreed with the authors).
