Authorship credit should be based on 1) major contributions to idea and design, data acquisition, or data analysis and interpretation, 2) drafting the article or critically reviewing it for vital intellectual content, and 3) final approval of the report to be published. These three requirements must be met by authors. After an article has been accepted, no modifications to the authors are permitted.
ORIGINALITY AND DUPLICATE PUBLICATION
All articles submitted should be unique and should not be under consideration for publication by other scientific journals at the same time. Without the consent of the Editorial Board, no part of the accepted work should be published in another scientific journal. If a duplicate publication of an article in this journal is discovered, the authors will be notified in the journal, and their institutes will be notified, as well as the paper being retracted.
Conflicts of interest should be disclosed in the manuscript if they exist. When an author (or the author’s institution or company) has financial or personal links or affiliations that potentially affect (or prejudice) the author’s decisions, work, or manuscript, a conflict of interest may occur. On the cover letter and the last page of the manuscript, all authors must disclose any potential conflicts of interest, including particular financial interests relevant to the subject of their research. The writers will also be required to complete and submit the Conflicts of Interest Disclosure Form. Please add the following disclosure in the manuscript if there is no conflict of interest: There are no conflicts of interest declared by the authors.
HUMAN AND ANIMAL RESEARCH
If the publication involves the use of human beings, the authors should make sure that the studies were carried out in compliance with the World Medical Association’s Code of Ethics (Declaration of Helsinki). The article should follow the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals and strive to include a diverse range of human populations (sex, age, and ethnicity) in accordance with those guidelines. It is important to use the phrases sex and gender accurately.
The authors should specify in the text that informed consent was acquired for the human subject trials. Human subjects’ private rights must always be respected.
The ARRIVE criteria should be followed in all animal research. Animal research should be carried out in accordance with the UK Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act, 1986 and accompanying guidelines, EU Directive 2010/63/EU, or the National Research Council’s Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, according to the authors. The authors should state in the manuscript that such standards were followed.
RESEARCH AND PUBLICATION MISCONDUCT
Misconduct in research and publication is strictly banned. They include fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, and any other actions that could jeopardize the integrity of research at any point along the process.
1. Fabrication is the recording or reporting of fictitious facts or outcomes.
2. Falsification refers to the alteration or deletion of data or outcomes, such that the research is not accurately reflected in the research record, as well as the manipulation of research materials or methods.
3. Plagiarism is defined as the unlawful use of someone else’s published or unpublished words, ideas, processes, results, or reports as one’s own original work. It also involves self-plagiarism, which is the act of presenting one’s own previously published work, in whole or in part, in the same or other languages as if it were new, without due citation.
PENALTIES FOR PUBLICATION VIOLATIONS
The handling editor shall reject the paper (papers under review) or withdraw it from publication with an announcement in the Journal if it is determined to be in breach of the Journal’s ethical principles (papers already published). The Committee on Research and Publication Ethics* evaluates published publications that raise ethical concerns and decides whether they should be withdrawn. The offender is notified in writing of the results of the examination and the actions to be taken by the Editorial Board. For three years after the decision date, authors who have committed an ethical violation are forbidden from submitting any manuscript to JETI. Only if new evidence that could alter the result is discovered within 30 days of the notification, the suspected authors can submit an objection and request a reconsideration. Additional steps may be taken by the Editorial Board if it deems them necessary.
