Research Repository Guidelines

Alternation


The alternation of your output depends on the status of your record. For an unclaimed output, you can just click ‘Claim’ to modify details of the record. For a claimed output, you’d better check if it is reviewed by admin team:

  1. A record marked as ‘Under review’

  • You may click ‘Edit’ to modify details of the record.
  • Or, click ‘Disclaim’ to move the record to Unclaimed Output list if you need to delete it from your list.
  1. A record marked as ‘Reviewed’

  • A reviewed output is open accessed in Research Repository and can only be alternated by the author or depositor with justification.
  • The requestor must note in their request the specific changes that have been made, in order to allow Research Repository staff to assess the request.
  • If you wish to make an alternation request, please contact Repository@xjtlu.edu.cn by completing the Research Repository – Alternation & Withdrawal Form.

Withdrawal


Works deposited in Research Repository may be withdrawn by either users or XJTLU. Every effort has been made to ensure that records in Research Repository do not infringe any person’s right. Works deposited in Research Repository may be withdrawn by XJTLU under some circumstances which include license agreement violations, legal requirements violations, ethical violations or falsified research, proven copyright infringement or plagiarism, content contains defamatory statements, and previously published work which is retracted by publisher from the publication.

Works deposited in Research Repository may also be withdrawn through user request. The withdrawal process depends on whether you are a XJTLU researcher:

  1. Withdrawal an output if you are a XJTLU researcher

The withdrawal of your output depends on the status of your record. For an unclaimed output, you can just click ‘Delete’ to remove it from you unclaimed output list. For a claimed output, you’d better check if it is reviewed by admin team:

  • A record marked as ‘Under review’

You can click ‘Disclaim’ to transfer the record to Unclaimed Output list and then click ‘Delete’ to remove it.

  • A record marked as ‘Reviewed’

A reviewed output is open accessed in Research Repository. It may be withdrawn through contacting Repository@xjtlu.edu.cn by completing the Research Repository – Alternation & Withdrawal Form.

  1. Withdrawal an output if you are a non-XJTLU researcher

  • If you are the author, rights holder or are authorized to act on behalf of the author/rights holder and you are concerned that you have found material available on Research Repository for which you have not given permission, you have the right to request its removal.
  • If you wish to make a withdrawal request, please also contact Repository@xjtlu.edu.cn by using the Research Repository – Alternation & Withdrawal Form.

On receipt of a request, Research Repository admin team will promptly:

  1. Acknowledge the receipt of your request by return email;

  2. Embargo the alleged infringing work so public access is temporarily restricted;

  3. Assess the validity of the request (During the process, Research Repository staff will contact the depositor if relevant and possible, outline the nature of the complaint and give the depositor an opportunity to refute the complaint.);

  4. Communicate the outcome of our assessment.

All requests will be investigated and evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If it is concluded that the work is in breach of intellectual property rights, the work will be permanently withdrawn from the Research Repository website. If it is concluded that the work does not breach any intellectual property rights, then the item will be reinstated.
