Publication Requirements:

By submitting a manuscript to this journal, authors acknowledge and agree to the following publication requirements:

  1. Originality and Simultaneous Submission: Manuscripts should not have been published previously and should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Simultaneous submission of the same manuscript to multiple journals is not permitted.
  2. Plagiarism and Fabricated Information: Plagiarism, including the use of someone else's work without proper attribution, and the submission of fabricated or falsified information, are strictly prohibited. Authors understand that if such misconduct is discovered, the publishers have the legal right to take appropriate action against them.
  3. Exclusions from Prior Publication: Abstracts, posters, conference presentations, and results databases are not considered prior publication. These forms of communication serve different purposes and do not conflict with the submission of a full manuscript to this journal.
  4. Translations of Previously Published Material: If authors wish to publish translations of articles that have been previously published elsewhere, they must obtain appropriate permissions, clearly indicate that the material has been translated and re-published and provide clear attribution to the original source. The Editor-in-Chief may request copies of related publications to assess potential overlap or redundancy.

By complying with these requirements, authors ensure the integrity of the publication process and avoid conflicts with other publications.
