Authorship change policy and Correction Form
Authors may request to make changes or remove authorship before and after the publication. The editor-in-chief will discuss the case with his or her publishing contact and agree on what action, if any, is required. The JICC will practice the COPE flowchart to handle these complaints and requests.

A correction provides a forum for communicating critical, scientifically relevant errors or missing information in a published article. Any changes made after publication that have an impact on scientific interpretation (for example, changes to a misleading portion of an otherwise reliable publication, an error in a figure, an error in data that does not affect conclusions or the addition of missing details about a method) are announced with a Correction.
The author must complete the Correction Submission Form and submit it to the editorial office.
