As per the common publishing practices of publishers, the correction of any kind to an already published article in IRJEAS is never advisable by us until unless very important and necessary. The version of an article which is published and available online is considered to be the final and complete version. Though it is possible to correct this version, we would not suggest for any corrections once an article has been published as it affects the records as well as is not considered as a good practice. To avoid any such condition we abide to the quality check and proofread of the article. Moreover, we send a final a draft of the article to the authors before it is published for the purpose of checking any mistakes, errors or discrepancies. Once an article is drafted and provided to the author, it is responsibility of the author(s) to check for any type of changes to be made whatever it maybe.
We are only able to correct typographical errors in the author names, affiliations, articles titles, and abstracts and keywords. For such corrections, an erratum or corrigendum would be necessary without which corrections are not possible at all. In addition to that, we will publish a correction to your article if there is a serious error, for example with regard to scientific accuracy, or if your reputation or that of the journal would be affected. We do not publish corrections that do not affect the contribution in a material way or significantly impair the reader’s understanding of the contribution (example: grammatical mistake, spelling mistake, etc.).
An erratum will be used if an important error has been introduced during the production of the journal article (one that affects the publication record, the scientific integrity of the paper, the reputation of the authors or of the journal), including errors of omission such as failure to make factual proof corrections requested by authors within the deadline provided by the journal and within journal policy.
We do not publish errata for typing errors except where an apparently simple error is significant (for example, an incorrect unit). A significant error in a figure or table is corrected by publication of a new corrected figure or table as an erratum. The figure or table is republished only if the editor considers it necessary.
A corrigendum is a notification of an important error made by the authors of the article. All authors must sign corrigenda submitted for publication.
In cases where co-authors disagree, the editors will take advice from independent peer-reviewers and impose the appropriate amendment, noting the dissenting author(s) in the text of the published version.
An addendum is a notification of a peer-reviewed addition of information to a paper, for example in response to a reader’s request for clarification. Addenda do not contradict the original publication, but if the author inadvertently omitted significant information available at the time, this material can be published as an addendum after peer review. 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.
