If the authors do not reply to communication even after multiple reminders, at any stage of the publication process; we holds all rights to disclose conduct of the authors and the content of the manuscript without author's further approval, and cannot be held responsible for consequences arising from it.
In general, the frequency of the author's request for manuscript withdrawal is low. In certain situations, the request made will be too late. In such cases, the efforts put together by the editorial members, reviewers, supporting teams etc., to progress the review and publication process will go in vain. So, authors are requested to be aware of the Publication Ethics and Author Guidelines.
