The article entitled “The Voluntary Nature of Ethical-Moral Behavior in the 21st Century (or in Any Other): A Personal Perspective” has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Clinical Research & Bioethics considering the statements provided in the article as personal opinion of the author which was found not having any conflict or biasness towards anything. As the article was a perspective one, information provided by the author was considered as an opinion to be expressed through publication.
Soon after the publication of the paper, we witnessed some serious concerns and many of them argued that the paper is a personal perspective and had not discussed any relevant ethical issue considered under the journal scope. Moreover, the paper is neither innovative nor thought provoking.
Publisher took decision to make the article online solely based on the reviewers suggestion which considered the article not but a personal opinion of the author. However, it is found that the article has some unavoidable mistakes and issues, therefore, being retracted from the journal.
The author presents his personal perspective on an old problem that is the independence of moral expression of academics in their professional environment. In my opinion, it is an interesting point of view that is worthy to be published. The manuscript is brief and clearly written with a perfect use of the language.A historical review about the problem and a comparative presentation of the author’s perspective could be added, but the author declares that he is presenting just his personal perspective.
