RETRACTION: The Basic Concept of Narratology and Narrative

Devi Sari Panggabean, Rahmadsyah Rangkuti


A careful analysis of the paper entitled “The Basic Concept of Narratology and Narrative” (2020), authored by Devi Sari Panggabean, Rahmadsyah Rangkuti, published in Volume 14, Issue 2. of Language Circle, pp. 184-190 has led us to the conclusion that this contribution was essentially similar to another paper authored by M. Amerian, L. Jorfi entitled “Key concepts and basic notes on narratology and narrative” (2015), which had been published in Scientific Journal of Review,  One of the conditions of submission of a paper for publication in this journal is that authors declare explicitly that their work is original and has not appeared in a publication elsewhere. Re-use of any data should be appropriately cited. As such this article represents a severe abuse of the scientific publishing system. The scientific community takes a very strong view on this matter and apologies are offered to readers of the journal that this was not detected during the submission process.
