It is the goal of the NSCA to only publish information that is accurate and fair. Any material errors of fact will be promptly corrected in a clear and timely manner.
The NSCA maintains its scholarly journals archive as a permanent, historic record of the transactions of scholarship. Articles that have been published in a journal shall remain extant, exact, and unaltered as far as is possible. However, very occasionally circumstances may arise where an article is published that must later be corrected, retracted, or even removed. Such actions must not be undertaken lightly and can only occur under exceptional circumstances.
