Publication Ethics

We follow the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publishing of Scientific Work in Medical Journals issued by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and the Code of Conduct and Best Practices for Journal Editors issued by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)

All of our publishing activities are guided by the following core ethical values:

  • Authorship and contributors: All authors and co-authors must meet the authorship criteria and ensure appropriate credit is given in their manuscript. Authors are encouraged to make clear statements of contribution to their work.
  • Originality: Authors must guarantee that the submitted manuscript is the original written by them. The work has not been previously published or is being considered for publication elsewhere. If the work and/or words of others are included, they must be properly cited or quoted.
  • Data access and citations: Authors may be asked to provide raw data relevant to the paper for editorial review. They should also be prepared to provide public access to that data. Data must be cited in the same way as article, book, and web citations and authors are required to include data citations as part of their reference list.
  • Acknowledgment of sources: Authors must fully acknowledge any work in the manuscript that has been contributed by others.
  • Declaration and conflicts of interest: All submissions must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as potential conflicts of interest.
  • Reporting standards: Authors of original research papers must provide an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.
  • Human and Animal Rights: For research involving experiments involving humans, a compliance statement is required to demonstrate that procedures were followed according to the ethical standards of the committee in charge of human experimentation (institutional and national). For studies reporting experiments involving animals, authors are asked to indicate whether institutional and/or national guidelines for the care and use of laboratory animals have been followed.
  • Research ethics: Research that we publish must have obtained approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB)/Ethical Review Unit in the unit or institution where the researcher takes shelter and if possible, informed consent. Clinical trials must have been registered with the clinical trial registry, according to local and international standards
  • Author ethics statement: Authors are responsible for all aspects of their work (including full data access, data integrity and accuracy of data analysis) in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are properly investigated and resolved
