Disagreements and complaints about the issue related to the manuscript submitted in IJEHSR must be addressed to the concerned editors. IJEHSR follows the below-mentioned policies for corrections in the online version of the manuscript. The authors must keep in mind that the publishable amendments that affect the publication record and accuracy of the published article will be considered only if valid evidence is provided. The correction must be notified briefly explaining the errors via email at (also see ICMJE guidelines). 

Categories of Amendments 

Publisher Correction

Complaints regarding the errors made by the journal that affects the manuscript integrity and author's reputation will be considered by the editorial team. 

Author Correction

Authors are recommended to report all sorts of errors post-publication. Avoid sending corrections for typographical errors or other minor issues that do not impact the scientific accuracy of the article. We are always interested in publishing corrections regarding main scientific contents, methodologies, results, and conclusion that has an impact on the integrity of the scientific findings published in the paper. These corrections will not directly be re-published as a new article rather a separate notice for amendment will be linked to the already published article’s webpage.


In case of invalid results of a previously published article, the retraction statement indicating the readers about the invalidity of the article is linked to the published paper. It must be noted that the original article remains available to the readers and is marked as retracted on the website. The journal follows COPE Retraction guidelines & recommendations for issuance of retraction.

Editor's Statement

A statement given by the editor notifying the issues with a respectively published manuscript is also considered and is displayed with the published manuscript to notify the readers about the complication. 

Expressions of Concern

If journal editors have legitimate worries and believe readers should be made aware of potentially misleading information in an article, they may think about publishing an Expression of Concern. Expressions of Concern, however, should only be made if a thorough inquiry into the issues raised by the article has come up empty-handed and there are still many compelling reasons to believe that the worries are warranted. Check out COPE Guidelines.

In extremely unusual circumstances, an Expression of Concern may be made while an inquiry is ongoing, but a decision won't be made for a long. Yet, in these situations, there must be solid evidence to support the validity of the concerns.

Editors should always be informed that publishing an Expression of Concern involves the same reputational risks as publishing a retraction, and that it is frequently preferable to hold off on publishing a retraction until the conclusion of an independent investigation.
