Publication Policy and Retraction

The publication of the manuscripts that have been approved of the review process will be scheduled according to the planned future editions. If a discrepancy is found in the manuscript or author related to the ethics of writing and journal publication, it will be settled between the journal and the author.

The articles published in Journal of Soft Computing Exploration will be considered to retract in the publication if:

  • They 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 crossreferencing, permission or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication)
  • it constitutes plagiarism
  • it reports unethical research

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