Peer Review Process

Ethical Responsibilities of Authors

The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its significance to our readership. Manuscripts are double-blind peer reviewed. Papers will only be sent to review if the Editor determines that the paper meets the appropriate quality and relevance requirements.

 

Compliance with Ethical Standards

To ensure objectivity and transparency in research, authors should include information regarding sources of funding, potential conflicts of interest (financial or non-financial), informed consent if the research involved human participants, and a statement on welfare of animals if the research involved animals.

Authors should include the following statements (if applicable) in a separate section entitled “Compliance with Ethical Standards” when submitting a paper:

  • Disclosure of potential conflicts of interest
  • Research involving Human Participants and/or Animals
  • Informed consent

Conflict of Interest

The journal requires that all authors disclose any potential sources of conflict of interest. Any interest or relationship, financial or otherwise that might be perceived as influencing an author's objectivity is considered a potential source of conflict of interest. These must be disclosed when directly relevant or directly related to the work that the authors describe in their manuscript. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to review this policy with all authors and collectively to disclose with the submission all pertinent commercial and other relationships.

The corresponding author will include a summary statement on the title page that is separate from their manuscript, that reflects what is recorded in the potential conflict of interest disclosure form(s).

Conflict of Interest:  Author A has received research grants from Company X. Author B has received a speaker honorarium from Company Y.

  • OR if no conflict exists: Author A declares that he/she has no conflict of interest. Author B declares that he/she has no conflict of interest.

Research involving Human Participants and/or Animals and Informed consent

The authors will include the Ethical approval just before the References:

(In case animals were involved) Ethical approval: All applicable international, national, and/or institutional guidelines for the care and use of animals were followed.
(And/or in case humans were involved) Ethical approval: All procedures performed in studies involving human participants were in accordance with the ethical standards of the institutional and/or national research committee and with the 1964 Helsinki declaration and its later amendments or comparable ethical standards.
