The online version of an article is considered final and complete. Synthesis and Sintering can only rectify typographical errors concerning author names, affiliations, article titles, abstracts, and keywords. In such instances, an erratum or corrigendum will be issued to document the difference between the online and print versions. We may publish corrections for serious errors impacting scientific accuracy or the reputation of the author or journal. Corrections that do not materially affect the contribution or significantly impair reader understanding will not be published. To request changes, please send an email to the Editor-in-Chief.

An erratum is issued for significant errors introduced during article production, affecting the publication record, scientific integrity, author reputation, or journal credibility. We do not publish errata for typographical errors unless they significantly impact clarity (e.g., incorrect units). Significant errors in figures or tables are corrected by publishing a new corrected version as an erratum if deemed necessary by the editor.

A corrigendum addresses important errors made by the authors. All authors must endorse corrigenda submissions. In cases of disagreement among co-authors, editors seek advice from independent peer-reviewers to determine appropriate amendments, acknowledging dissenting authors in the published version.

An addendum notifies readers of peer-reviewed additions to a paper, often in response to reader inquiries for clarification. Addenda do not contradict the original publication but may supplement omitted significant information. Addenda are published sparingly, following the editor’s assessment of their necessity for reader comprehension of the published contribution.

In instances where errors are identified, particularly those that substantially impact the conclusions drawn, or when evidence of misconduct is found, it may necessitate the retraction of the publication or the issuance of an expression of concern, following the COPE Retraction Guidelines. Upon such a decision, all authors will be duly informed and asked to concur with the content of the notice. This ensures transparency and accountability in maintaining the integrity of scholarly publications.
