Permanency of articles published in Transactions on Science and Technology

Transactions on Science and Technology has taken steps to ensure that all open access articles published by the journal are deposited in a safe open access archive. Should Transactions on Science and Technology be sold, or fail, open access to the articles published is guaranteed to continue via the archive. If and when a change of ownership should be considered, the new publisher will be asked to judge and advise whether sufficient guarantees to continue a policy of unconditional open access for research articles are being offered and agreed by any prospective new owner. The journal will not enter into a change of ownership agreement unless such guarantee is adequate. In addition, once an article has been published, we do not allow it to be changed, leading to the following policies.

Article corrections and retractions Corrections to or retractions of published articles will be made by publishing a correction or retraction note and without altering the original article in any way other than to add a prominent link to the note. In this way, the original article remains in the public domain and the subsequent correction or retraction will be widely indexed.

Article removal The preservation of scientific research is a cornerstone of science and as such we will use our best efforts to ensure that material published by the journal is preserved and remains available for access. However, in the exceptional event that material is considered to infringe certain rights or is defamatory, the journal administration may have no option but to remove that material from our site and those sites on which we have deposited the material in question.

The journal therefore reserves the right to cease to make available articles, or relevant article content, that it has been advised are potentially defamatory or that infringe any intellectual property right, or are otherwise unlawful. When this occurs, the article will remain indexed. However, in place of the article or content an appropriate explanatory note will be attached. An example of such an explanatory note is as follows:

"The journal regrets that this article is no longer available to avoid threatened legal claims".
