JAE Dual Publication Policy and Retraction Procedure

The Journal of Agricultural Education promotes the profession by facilitating and disseminating research, trends, developments, and innovations in agricultural education. In order to accomplish this, the Journal insists that researchers and authors:

The journal editor, in consultation with the JAE Editing-Managing Board, will consider retracting a publication for the following reasons:

The journal editor will consider publishing a letter of concern if inconclusive evidence of research or publication misconduct by the authors is received. The journal editor will consider publishing a letter of correction if a small portion of a publication proves to be misleading, or because of honest error, or because the author list is incorrect.

Retractions, letters of concern, and letters of correction will be published in the Journal of Agricultural Education as soon as possible by the journal editor. Retracted articles are removed from the online Journal. Letters of concern and correction are appended to online journal articles. Articles may be retracted by their author(s) or by the journal editor. Authors who wish to appeal a retraction, letter of concern, or letter of correction, may appeal directly to the Journal of Agricultural Education Editing Managing Board. This board will be the sole and final arbiter of the appeal. By submitting a manuscript for review for publication in the Journal of Agricultural Education, all of the manuscript's authors agree to the provisions set forth in this document. The Journal does not consider papers presented at a research conference, and then published in the Journal to be redundant publication.
