Avicenna Journal of Clinical Medicine (AJCM) to maintain the content published and alert readers to changes if and when they occur.

What is Cross Mark?
Cross Mark, a multi-publisher initiative from Cross Ref, provides a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of a document. We recognize the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record to researchers and librarians and attach the highest importance to maintaining trust in the authority of its electronic archive. Clicking on the Cross Mark icon will inform the reader of the current status of a document also provide additional publication record information about the document.

Permanency of Content
All content published in AJCM is permanently published, regardless of the outcome of the peer review that follows after publication.
AJCM participates in the Cross Mark scheme, a multi-publisher initiative that has developed a standard way for readers to locate the current version of a piece of content. By applying the Cross Mark policies, AJCM is committed to maintaining the content it publishes and to alerting readers to changes if and when they occur.
Clicking on the Cross Mark logo, at the top of each AJCM article, will give you the current status of the article and its last updates and direct you to the latest published version.
In order to maintain the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record, we will apply the COPE Policies on Retraction Guidelines when published content needs to be corrected or retracted; these policies take into account current best practice in the scholarly publishing. Based on the COPE guideline, AJCM editors consider retracting a publication if:
  • there is 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)
  • it constitutes plagiarism
  • it reports unethical research
AJCM editors consider issuing an expression of concern if:
  • they receive inconclusive evidence of research or publication misconduct by the authors.
