Thanks to your contacts, Springer Publishing has withdrawn the article by Dr. Rostami from their journal , Macromolecular Research, since the article listed Emam Zaman as the co-author.
Adding the sacred name of an Emam to a scientific paper for religious or political reasons is contrary to customary publication guidelines.
Dear Fredun Hojabri,
The result of our inquiry is that the corresponding author indeed used the name of the 12th imam, which is incorrect and not acceptable.
The editor-in-chief decided to withdraw the paper. At the moment they are preparing a retraction paper, which will be published and linked with the original paper. Additionally a grey watermark will be added on the PDF of the original article, which says that the paper is retracted. And the title of the paper will be updated. It will take a little bit of time until everyting is done. (For scientific reasons, e.g. if someone has quoted the paper already, it’s not possible to remove it completely.)
