Ethical Consideration

Ethics of studies involving humans and animals

Ethical considerations must be addressed in the Materials and Methods section. 1) Please state that informed consent was obtained from all participants. 2) Include the name of the appropriate institutional review board that approved the project. 3) Indicate in the text that the maintenance and care of experimental animals complies with National Institutes of Health guidelines for the humane use of laboratory animals or those of your institute.

Ethics of scientific publishing

Submission of a paper implies that it reports unpublished work and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. If previously published tables illustrations or text are to be included then this should be clearly indicated in the manuscript and the copyright holder"s permission must be obtained. Previously published material can be cited in a later review or commentary article but it must be indicated using quotation marks if necessary. Plagiarism of text from a previously published manuscript by the same or another author is a serious publication offence. Small amounts of text may be used but only where the source of the material quoted is clearly acknowledged. Fraudulent data or data stolen from other authors is also unethical and will be treated accordingly. Any alleged offence is considered initially by the Editorial Team.
