When authorship is associated with a group, all authors must make a compelling contribution to the following: (i) Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; (ii) Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content; (ii) Final approval of the version to be published; (iv) Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

Plagiarism is the practice of taking the works or ideas of others and acknowledging them as their own without involving them. The submitted manuscript must be the original work of the author(s).
Duplication of publications
Duplication of publications is a publication of substantially overlapping manuscripts with one published publication, without reference which clearly refers to the previous publication. Submissions will be considered for publication only if they are submitted solely for this publication and do not overlap substantially with articles that have been published. Any manuscript that has the same (or adjacent) hypotheses, sample characteristics, methodology, results, and conclusions with published texts is a duplicate article and is forbidden to be sent, even included, that has been published in a different language. Slicing data from a single "study" to create multiple separate scripts without substantial differences should be avoided.
Fabrication, manipulation or data forgery is ethical and prohibited.
Manipulation of reference
Only relevant citations can be used in the manuscript. Excerpts (personal) that are irrelevant to increase the author's quote (h-index) or unnecessary citations to increase reference counts are not allowed.

Experiments on humans or animals should be clearly demonstrated in "Materials and Methods", and examined and approved by professionals on the moral side. Human studies must be in accordance with the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki and need to receive mentoring from physicians in biomedical research involving human subjects. Details of data from human subjects may only be included if it is of great importance for scientific purposes and the author (or the authors) obtain written permission from the concerned person, parent or guardian.
Intellectual Property Right
The author(s) must obey the law and / or ethics in treating the object of study, considering the legality of material resources and intellectual property rights.
