Retraction: Status of Exotic Flora in Kashmir Valley
J For Environ Sci 2012;28:8-11.
The Editorial Board of The Journal of Forest and Environmental Science (JFES) received a report on December 12, 2021, from Dr. Shabana Aslam, Cluster National University. The original paper titled ‘Exotic Ornamental Flora of Kashmir Valley-An overview’ was published in New York Science Journal 2010: 3(5).
Research Ethics Integrity Committee of Institute of Forest Science, Kangwon National University had found the significant falsifications in the paper.
Accordingly, the Editorial Board of The Journal of Forest and Environmental Science (JFES) conducted several board meetings, external expert audits, and received author’s explanations. The author (Murtaza Shah) admitted the plagiarism and expressed apology. Based on the discussion, the Editorial Board of JFES finally decided to retract the paper “Status of exotic flora in Kashmir valley”, and the retraction decision was notified to the relevant researchers and institutions.
We, the Editorial Board of JFES seriously take this research ethics violation. We genuinely apologize to the reviewers, editors who devoted their time and endeavor to evaluate the article and the forest and environmental science community.
The JFES publishes four issues per year from 2012
The JFES changes its publication schedule now. The journal has published three times per year (April, August and December) until now. From Vol. 28 (2012), however, the journal publishes four issues (February, May, August and November).
The JFES applies no publication charge to eligible articles from the developing world.
Publication fees can be a barrier to publish many eligible articles from developing or underdeveloped countries. The JFES offers a complete fee waiver for authors who can't cover publication fees.
