    • The author's name(s)
    • The reason for the withdrawal
  • Withdrawal requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The journal editor-in-chief will make a decision based on the following factors:

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when requesting a withdrawal from IJBR:

  • The withdrawal request must be submitted before the article is published. Once the article has been published, it can only be withdrawn in exceptional circumstances.
  • The withdrawal request will not be considered if the article has already been cited by other authors.
  • The withdrawal of an article may have negative consequences for the authors, such as the loss of funding or the inability to publish their work in other journals.

If you are considering withdrawing an article from IJBR, you should carefully weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. You should also consult with your research supervisor or another experienced researcher before submitting a withdrawal request.
