Publication Ethics

Ethics issue

All studies should have been performed within an appropriate ethical framework. The editor in chief, advisory boards, reviewers, and authors must declare and consider facts described by “Committee on Publication Ethics” (COPE). Any evidence of plagiarism, fabricated data or any other kinds of fraud must be informed.

Authorship and Author Responsibility

The corresponding author takes main duty for communication with the CHJ during manuscript submission, peer review, and the process of publication and ensures that all of the journal’s administrative requirements, such as providing details of authorship, ethics committee approval, clinical trial registration documentation, and writing conflict of interest statements, are properly completed. The corresponding author should response to editorial queries throughout the submission and peer review process as early as possible and should obey with any requests from the CHJ after publication.

Conflict of Interest

Authors are asked to declare all relationships or interests regarding to their work. All submitted manuscripts must have a ‘conflict of interest’ paragraph at the end of the manuscript to disclose all financial and non-financial competing interests. Where there is no conflict of interest, the statement should write, “The authors declare that they have no conflict of interest.”
