Publication Ethics

Authorship: Authorship credit should be based on 1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data, 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content, and 3) final approval of the version to be published. Authors should meet these 3 conditions.

Originality and Duplicate Publication: All submitted manuscripts should be original and should not be considered by other scientific journals for publication at the same time. No part of the accepted manuscript should be duplicated in any other scientific journal without the permission of the Editorial Board. If any duplicate publication related to a paper of this journal is detected, the authors will be announced in the journal and their institutes will be informed, along with retraction of the paper.
