Our authors need to strongly adhere to the Ethical principal of publications:
* Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. Transparency about the contributions of authors is encouraged, for example in the form of a CRediT author statement.
* The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
* Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review and should be prepared to provide public access to such data.
* An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Elsevier does not view the following uses of a work as prior publication: publication in the form of an abstract; publication as an academic thesis; publication as an electronic preprint. Note: some society-owned titles and journals that operate double-blind review have different policies on prior publication. Information on prior publication is included within each Elsevier journal’s guide for authors.
* Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given.
* All submissions must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest.
* When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
* Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.
* Statements of compliance are required if the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, or if it involves the use of animal or human subjects.
* Studies on patients or volunteers require ethics committee approval and informed consent, which should be documented in the paper.
