Scientific misconduct / Corrections /Retraction Policy

Scientific fraud are rare events; however, they have a very serious impact on the integrity of the scientific community. Scientific misconduct is defined by the Office of Research Integrity as “fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, or other practices that seriously deviate from those that are commonly accepted within the academic community for proposing, conducting, or reporting research”. In cases where there is a suspicion or allegation of scientific misconduct or fraudulent research in manuscripts submitted or published, the Editors reserve the right to impose sanctions on the authors, such as: immediate rejection of the manuscript, banning author(s) from submitting manuscripts to the journal for a certain period of time, retracting the manuscript, bringing the concerns to the authors’ sponsoring or funding institution or other appropriate authority for investigation

If the Editorial Board uncovers possible evidence of such problems it will first contact the corresponding author in complete confidence, to allow adequate clarification of the situation. If the results of such interactions are not satisfactory, the Board will contact the appropriate official(s) in the institution(s) from which the manuscript originated. It is then left to the institution(s) in question to pursue the matter appropriately. Depending on the circumstances, the Romanian Journal of Laboratory Medicine may also opt to publish errata, corrigenda, or retractions.

Serious errors in a published manuscript and infringements of professional ethical codes will result in an article being retracted. This will occur where the article is clearly defamatory, or infringes others’ legal rights, or where the article is, or there is good reason to expect it will be, the subject of a court order, or where the article, if acted upon, might pose a serious health risk. In any of these cases all coauthors will be informed about a retraction. A Retraction Note detailing the reason for retraction will be linked to the original article.
