Authors submitting to this journal are expected to uphold high ethical standards in their research and publication practices. The following guidelines outline these responsibilities:

  1. No Concurrent Submissions: Authors must not submit identical or essentially similar manuscripts to multiple journals simultaneously, nor should they submit papers that have been previously published elsewhere for consideration.

  1. Data Integrity: Authors should gather and interpret research data honestly, ensuring accuracy in reporting and analysis.

  1. Originality: Authors are responsible for ensuring the originality of their work. Proper citations and references must be provided for any use of others' work or words. Plagiarism in any form is strictly unacceptable.

  1. Acknowledgement: All contributors to the research should receive appropriate acknowledgement. Those who significantly contributed should be listed as co-authors.

  1. Error Reporting and Cooperation: Authors should promptly notify the journal editor of any errors found in their published paper. They should work collaboratively with the editor to correct or retract the paper when necessary. If errors are reported by anyone other than the author, corrections should be made accordingly.

  1. Informed Consent: Authors involving human subjects or personal information in their research must include a statement in the manuscript that informed consent was obtained. This applies to experimentation, case details, personal information, or images.
