Cancellation policy at IgMin Research

Our mission is to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and accelerate the advancement of knowledge across a wide spectrum of scientific domains.

Introduction

Welcome to IgMin Research - STEM | A Multidisciplinary Open Access Journal! We are excited to have you as a part of our academic community. As we embark on this journey together, it is essential to familiarize ourselves with our Cancellation Policy. This policy outlines the guidelines and procedures regarding cancellation of submissions, memberships, and events. It ensures transparency, fairness, and efficient handling of cancellations while maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.

Submission Cancellation Policy

As a prospective author or visitor to IgMin Research - STEM | A Multidisciplinary Open Access Journal, we want to provide you with comprehensive information about our Submission Cancellation Policy. We understand that circumstances may change, and authors may reconsider their decision to submit their research work. This policy aims to ensure a smooth and respectful process for authors who wish to withdraw their manuscript submissions from consideration. Below, we outline the step-by-step procedure involved in cancellation to help you navigate this aspect of the submission process effectively:

Step 1

Reflect on your decision: Before initiating the cancellation process, take some time to reflect on your decision to withdraw your manuscript submission. Submitting your research to a journal represents a significant commitment, and it is essential to weigh the implications of withdrawal carefully. We encourage you to consider the time and effort invested by peer reviewers and the editorial team in evaluating your work. If you have any doubts or concerns about your submission, you may also consider reaching out to the Editorial Office for guidance and support.

Step 2

Early withdrawal (Pre-review stage): If you decide to cancel your submission before the formal review process begins, follow these steps for early withdrawal:

Notify the editorial office: Send a formal cancellation request via email to the Editorial Office at least 48 hours before the scheduled review process. In your email, include the following details:

Manuscript title: Provide the title of your submitted manuscript.

Corresponding author's name: Clearly state the name of the corresponding author.

Reason for withdrawal: Briefly explain the reason for your withdrawal. This feedback is valuable to us and helps us improve our services.

Review and confirmation: The Editorial Office will review your cancellation request and process it promptly. You will receive a confirmation email acknowledging the withdrawal of your manuscript from the review queue. Please note that early withdrawal allows us to remove your work from consideration before reviewers have invested significant time in the evaluation process.

Step 3

Late withdrawal (Post-review stage): In some cases, authors may find it necessary to withdraw their submissions during the review process due to unforeseen circumstances or changes in research direction. While late withdrawals may pose challenges for the review process, we understand that exceptional circumstances may arise. If you need to withdraw your manuscript after the review process has commenced, please follow these guidelines:

Immediate communication: As soon as you decide to withdraw your manuscript, notify the Editorial Office promptly. Timely communication helps us handle the situation with professionalism and respect for all parties involved.

Explain the situation: In your withdrawal request, provide a clear explanation of the circumstances that led to the withdrawal. Understanding your situation will assist us in addressing any concerns you may have.

Reviewer considerations: At this stage, some peer reviewers may have already dedicated time to evaluate your work. While we cannot guarantee that all reviewers can be withdrawn, we will make every effort to respect your decision and minimize any inconvenience caused.

Step 4

Decision on withdrawal: The Editorial Office will assess your cancellation request based on the stage of review and the circumstances presented. Our goal is to handle all withdrawal requests with fairness and efficiency while ensuring a respectful treatment of authors' decisions. Once your cancellation request is processed, we will promptly communicate the outcome to you via email.

Important points to consider

Confidentiality: We prioritize the confidentiality of all submitted manuscripts. If you decide to withdraw your submission, rest assured that your research work will not be shared or used in any way without your explicit consent.

Reconsideration: Should you wish to reconsider your withdrawal decision at a later stage, you are welcome to resubmit your manuscript following our regular submission guidelines.

Feedback and support: We understand that the publication process can be challenging, and you may have questions or concerns. Our Editorial Office is here to support you throughout the submission process and address any inquiries you may have.

Ethical considerations: As you consider withdrawal, we encourage you to act ethically and responsibly. We value the efforts of reviewers and the time invested by our editorial team and request your understanding and cooperation in maintaining the integrity of the peer review process.

We hope that this comprehensive explanation of our Submission Cancellation Policy provides you with the necessary information to navigate the process effectively. At IgMin Research, we strive to maintain a supportive and collaborative environment for all authors, promoting excellence in multidisciplinary research. If you have any further questions or require assistance with the submission process, please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated support team.

We value your commitment to scholarly pursuits and recognize that circumstances may arise that necessitate the cancellation of your event registration. To ensure a smooth and fair process for event registration cancellations, we have established the following guidelines:

Cancellation notification

When unforeseen circumstances prevent you from attending an event you have registered for, it is crucial to promptly inform the Event Management Team about your decision to cancel your participation. We understand that life's uncertainties can impact travel plans and availability, and we are here to assist you throughout the process. To initiate the cancellation, kindly follow these steps:

  1. Communication channel: Contact the Event Management Team through the designated communication channel. This is typically an email address or an online portal specified during the event registration process. Providing your cancellation request through the designated channel ensures that it is received and processed by the appropriate personnel promptly.
  2. Reason for cancellation: While not mandatory, sharing the reason for your cancellation can be helpful for our records and may also provide valuable feedback for future event planning. However, rest assured that your privacy and confidentiality will be respected, and providing a reason is entirely optional.
  3. Timely notification: Please endeavor to notify us of your cancellation as soon as you become aware of the need to cancel. Early notification allows us to make necessary adjustments to event logistics and ensures that other participants may have the opportunity to attend the event in your place.

Refund policy

We understand that registering for an event involves a financial commitment, and we strive to be fair and transparent in our refund policy. Our refund policy is designed to account for the resources and arrangements made on your behalf as a registered participant. Refunds for event registrations will be processed based on the time of cancellation:

  1. Cancellation made at Least 30 days before the event
    1. Participants who cancel their registration at least 30 days before the event will be eligible for a full refund of the registration fee, minus any applicable administrative fees.
    2. The administrative fees, if any, may vary based on the specific event and its associated costs.
  2. Cancellation made between 30 and 15 days before the event
    1. Participants who cancel their registration between 30 and 15 days before the event will be eligible for a 50% refund of the registration fee, minus any applicable administrative fees.
    2. As with the previous scenario, administrative fees, if applicable, will be deducted from the refund amount.
  3. Cancellation made lessthan 15 days before the event
    1. Unfortunately, no refund will be provided for cancellations made within 15 days of the event. This policy is in place to ensure that we can plan and execute events with the utmost efficiency and effectiveness.
    2. Cancellations within this timeframe often result in fixed costs incurred by the event organizers, which cannot be recovered.

Substitution policy

In cases where you are unable to attend an event after registering, we understand that finding a substitute participant may be a viable solution. The substitution policy allows another individual to attend the event on your behalf. To request a substitution, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Contact the event management team: If you wish to arrange a substitution, kindly get in touch with the Event Management Team as soon as possible. Communication should ideally be initiated at least 48 hours before the event to allow sufficient time for processing the request.
  2. Details of the substitute participant: Provide the Event Management Team with the necessary details of the substitute participant. This typically includes the substitute's full name, contact information, and any other required information specified by the event organizers.
  3. Approval of substitution: Substitutions are subject to approval by the Event Management Team. While we strive to accommodate substitutions whenever possible, there may be cases where specific event-related considerations prevent us from approving a substitution.

Please keep in mind that substitution requests should be made with respect to the event's objectives and intended audience. In certain cases, events may have restrictions or requirements that could affect the eligibility of a substitute participant.

We want to ensure that your event experience with IgMin Research is seamless and rewarding.

General Cancellation Guidelines

At IgMin Research, we are committed to providing an exceptional experience for our authors, members, and event participants. As part of our dedication to transparency and fairness, we have established general cancellation guidelines that apply to various aspects of our journal. These guidelines ensure that cancellation requests are handled efficiently and that all parties involved are treated with respect and consideration.

Journal's right to cancel

While we make every effort to deliver all scheduled events and activities, there may be situations beyond our control that necessitate event cancellations or rescheduling. Some of the reasons for journal-initiated cancellations include:

  1. Unforeseen circumstances: Events might need to be canceled due to unforeseen circumstances, such as natural disasters, global health emergencies, political unrest, or any other situation that poses significant risks or challenges to event organization.
  2. Insufficient registrations: In the interest of providing meaningful and impactful events, we strive to achieve a certain level of participation. If the number of registrations falls below a viable threshold, we may choose to cancel or reschedule the event to ensure the best possible experience for attendees.
  3. Speaker or presenter unavailability: Occasionally, circumstances arise that prevent scheduled speakers or presenters from participating in events. In such cases, we may need to reschedule the event or find suitable replacements to maintain the event's integrity.

Communication and refunds

In the event of a journal-initiated cancellation, registered participants will be promptly notified through the contact information provided during registration. We understand that cancellations can be disappointing, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.
