Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Correction and Retraction Policy

It´s Journal of Technology Management and Innovation policy not to alter or remove the published scientific record. "Articles that have been published should remain extant, exact and unaltered to the maximum extent possible"

We will respond to suggestions of scientific misconduct or to convincing evidence that the main substance or conclusions of a published manuscript is erroneous, usually through consultation with the author and an editorial committee. This may require the publication of a formal retraction or correction. An editorial concern note may be published by the Editor whilst an investigation into alleged misconduct or publication of erroneous data is ongoing. This editorial concern note will be published if its received inconclusive evidence of research or publication misconduct by the authors; evidence that the findings are unreliable but the authors' institution will not investigate the case; an investigation into alleged misconduct related to the publication either has not been, or would not be, fair and impartial or conclusive; or an investigation is underway but a judgement will not be available for a considerable time.

We will not usually publish a correction that does not affect the contribution in a material way or if the issue does not significantly impair the reader's understanding of the contribution, e.g. a spelling mistake or grammatical error. The correction is free to view and is linked to the article of record which it corrects.

Publishable amendments requested by the authors of the publication are represented by a formal printed and online notice in the journal because they affect the publication record and/or the scientific accuracy of published information. Where these amendments concern peer-reviewed material, they fall into one of four categories: errata, corrigenda, retraction or addendum, described here, in which an additional PDF will be attached to the original document.

Errata is published when mistakes are introduced or not recognized in the article during editing or production, like significant typographical errors, errors in figure or table numbers or their legends, proof corrections submitted but not included in the article during editing, wrong details in the address or email of the author.

Corrigenda is published when errors are detected by the authors after publication of the paper which compromises the validity of the scientific content, its accuracy and reproducibility. If the readers detect an error in any paper, they are requested to submit their comments as 'Letter to the Editor' following the prescribed article format. These articles submitted as 'Letter to the editor' will be peer reviewed and will also be sent to original authors for their comments. On acceptance for publication, the 'Letter to the editor' and comments of the original authors will be published in the same issue. Corrigenda are judged on their relevance to readers and their importance for the published record. Corrigenda are published after discussion among the editors (typically including the editors who handled the published contribution), often with the help of peer-reviewers. All coauthors must sign an agreed wording.

Addenda are notifications of a peer-reviewed addition of information to a paper,are judged on the significance of the addition to the interpretation of the original publication. Addenda do not contradict the original publication, but if the authors inadvertently omitted significant information available to them at the time, this material will be published as an addendum after peer-review and after discussion among the editors usually in response to readers' request for clarification. Addenda are published only rarely and only when the editors decide that the addendum is crucial to the reader's understanding of a significant part of the published contribution.

Retractions are judged according to whether the main conclusion of the paper no longer holds or is seriously undermined as a result of subsequent information coming to light of which the authors were not aware at the time of publication. Readers wishing to draw the editors' attention to published work requiring retraction should first contact the authors of the original paper and then write to the journal, including copies of the correspondence with the authors (whether or not the correspondence has been answered). The editors will seek advice from reviewers if they judge that the information is likely to draw into question the main conclusions of the published paper.

We will consider issuing a retraction notice if: we have 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 redundant publication); the publication constitutes plagiarism the publication reports unethical research.

In the case a retraction proceeds the article of record will be digitally watermarked RETRACTED.
