Manuscript Removal Policy

The author may not want to publish his/her manuscript after submitting it to any journal of ContusM Publications. We do not charge a fee for terminating and removing an article from the journal if the author specifies it within a week. If an author wants to remove the manuscript after one week, he/she will be asked to pay a partial processing fee from the article process fee. This fee is charged by our publisher for using a variety of services during the processing of a manuscript. We request the authors to pay 30% of the original article processing fee in case of termination or removal of the manuscript after one week.
