Copyright Notice

ICMJE (International Committee of Medical Journal editors) recommends authorship to be based on the following 4 criteria:

  1. Significant contribution to the study concept and design, or the acquisition and analysis of data, or their interpretation
  2. Writing the first version of the article or substantial revision of its important intellectual content
  3. Final approval of the publication version

4. Consent to be responsible for all aspects of the work and ensure appropriate consideration and resolution of issues related to the accuracy and integrity of all parts of the work. In addition to responsibility for the part of the work that was done by the author, the author should be able to indicate co-author who is responsible for the other parts of the work. Furthermore, authors should be assured of the good faith contribution of their co-authors. All persons designated as authors must meet all four criteria for authorship, and all persons who meet the criteria for authorship must be listed in the list of authors.

Persons who do not meet all four criteria for authorship should be listed in the “Acknowledgements” section. These criteria for authorship are designed to ensure that the status of authorship is given to those who are trustworthy and can take responsibility for the published work. These criteria should not serve as a means of excluding colleagues who meet the remaining criteria, by depriving them of the ability to meet criteria 2 or 3. Therefore, all persons meeting the first criterion should be able to participate in the processing, writing of the first version of the manuscript and its final approval for publication. The persons conducting the work are responsible for identifying those who meet these criteria and, ideally, should do it during the planning of the work, and, as the work proceeds, make the necessary changes. Authors, but not the magazine in which the work is submitted, should jointly establish that all persons listed in the list of authors meet all four criteria. The magazine editors’ tasks do not include determining who meets or does not meet the requirements for authorship, or the resolution of conflicts related to authorship. If it is not possible to reach an agreement on who can be qualified as an author, the study site(s), but not the magazine editor, should be asked for resolution of the disputed issue. If authors are asked to remove or add an author after submitting or publishing a manuscript, magazine editors should receive appropriate explanations and a signed statement of consent from all the authors listed for the requested change, as well as from the author whose name should be removed or added. The corresponding author is primarily responsible for communicating with the magazine in the process of submitting, reviewing and publishing the manuscript, and he usually ensures that all administrative requirements of the magazine are met correctly, for example, specifying the authors' details, obtaining approval from the ethics committee and clinical registration documents, and collecting forms and conflict of interest statements. However, these responsibilities may also be assigned to one or more of the other co-authors. The corresponding author must be available throughout the process of submitting and reviewing the manuscript in order to promptly answer editorial questions, as well as after publication, to respond to criticism of the work and provide any data and additional information upon editorial request if there are any questions about the article after its publication. Although the corresponding author is primarily responsible for correspondence with the magazine, ICMJE recommends editors to send copies of all correspondence to all the authors listed. If the study is conducted by a large group, ideally, this group should decide who will be the author before starting work and confirm this decision before submitting the manuscript to the magazine. All members of the group included in the list of authors must meet all four criteria for authorship, including the approval of the final version of the manuscript, accept public responsibility for this work and have complete confidence in the accuracy and integrity of the work of the other members of the group of authors. They must also personally complete the conflict of interest forms. Some large groups of authors denote authorship by the name of the group, with or without indication of individuals. When submitting a manuscript on behalf of a group of authors, the corresponding author must indicate the name of the group, if any, and clearly identify the members of the group who can be entrusted with the reliance and responsibility for this work as authors. If the byline of article indicates who is directly responsible for the manuscript, and MEDLINE will list all authors indicted in byline. If the byline contains the group name, MEDLINE will list the individual members of the group who are authors, as well as participants, who are sometimes called as non-authors contributors, if available the note to the byline that clearly indicates that the list of individual participants is given in article elsewhere, and which of these participants is the author or another contributor.

Other participants of the work who do not meet all 4 criteria of authorship mentioned above should not be indicated as authors, but they should be thanked. Examples of activities that alone (without any other contribution to the work) cannot be considered a sufficient basis for authorship include fundraising, general management of a research group or general administrative support, writing assistance, technical editing, linguistic editing, and proofreading. Individuals whose contribution does not qualify as authorship can be thanked individually or collectively as a group under one heading (for example, “Clinical Researchers” or “Research Participants”), and their specific contribution should be indicated (for example, “participated as a scientific consultant ","critically evaluated the study plan", "collected data", "included patients in the study and participated in their treatment", "participated in the writing or technical editing of the manuscript"). Since the inclusion in the “Acknowledgements” section may imply confirmation of the data and the conclusion of the study by persons who will be thanked, editors are encouraged to ask the corresponding author to obtain written permission to be mentioned in “Acknowledgements” from all persons who will be thanked.


Privacy Statement

Authors and Reviewers

Manuscripts should be reviewed with due respect for authors' confidentiality. In submitting their manuscripts for review, authors entrust editors with the results of their scientific work and creative effort, on which their reputation and career may depend. Authors' rights may be violated by disclosure of the confidential details of the review of their manuscript.In addition, the editor should respect reviewer rights to confidentiality. It may need to be breached only in order to prevent fraud and deception.

Editors must not disclose information about manuscripts (including their receipt, content, status in the reviewing process, criticism by reviewers, or outcome of the reviewing process) to anyone other than the authors and reviewers. This includes requests to use the materials for legal proceedings.

Editors should notify their reviewers that manuscripts sent for review are confidential communications and the private property of the authors. Therefore, reviewers and members of the editorial staff must respect the authors' rights by not publicly discussing the authors' work before the manuscript is published. Reviewers must be prohibited from making copies of the manuscript and sharing it with any other party, except with the permission of the editor.

Reviewer comments should not be published or otherwise made public without permission of reviewer, authors and the editor. 

The Journal policy is to blind authors to reviewer identity. If reviewer comments sent to authors are not signed, the reviewer identity must not be revealed to authors or anyone else without the reviewers’ expressed written permission.

Peer reviewers’ comments should not be published without permission of the reviewer and authors. At the same time, reviewers’ comments should be sent to other persons reviewing the same manuscript, which helps reviewers learn from the review process. Reviewers also may be notified of the editor's decision to accept or reject a manuscript.

Patients and Study Participants

Patients have a right to privacy that should not be infringed without informed consent. Identifying information, including patients’ names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication.

Informed consent for this purpose requires that a patient who is identifiable be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should disclose to these patients whether any potential identifiable material might be available via the Internet as well as in print after publication.

Patient consent should be written and archived with the Journal, the authors, or both, as dictated by local regulations or laws. Applicable laws vary from locale to locale, and Journals should establish their own policies with legal guidance.

In order to better protect patient identity, written consent of patients can be archived by the authors. In this case, the authors should provide the Journal with a written statement that attests that they have received and archived written patient consent.

Identifying details should be omitted if they are not essential. Complete anonymity is difficult to achieve, however, and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note. The requirement for informed consent should be included in the Journal’s instructions for authors. When informed consent has been obtained it should be indicated in the published article.
