In the case of misconduct, the authors will be contacted and informed of the type of misconduct identified in the paper and will be either offered the possibility to rectify the paper and to retract it.

Those decisions will be taken by the editor, who might also choose to consult some reviewers. This process will necessarily involve the authors of the paper but the definitive decision is made by the editor.
