Deleting a Published Paper in OJS

Is there any way to delete a paper published in the OJS? It may happen that, a paper is found to be deficient in standard or it was identified that the paper has ethical problem, and the editor wants to withdraw the published paper from an issue. I do not see the possibility in the system, as only unpublished paper can be archived and then deleted.

How to delete a published paper in OJS?

Hi @missan,

You should be able to remove any artilce the same way, regardless of whether it’s published or not. As Editor, go to its Submission page; then Archive the submission. Then go to the editor’s Archive queue, find the submission there, and delete it.

My paper is not in Archive, it is in my Queue.
