Manuscript Withdrawal

The author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, money, and works invested by the publisher.
If author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished by being barred from submitting to NIZHAM: Journal of Islamic Stuides for 5 years. However, it is highly unethical to submit manuscripts while it is being considered or has been published elsewhere.
