The journal adheres to the ethical standards endorsed by the Committee on Publication Ethics. In particular:
- We expect all authors to state in their article if they have a conflict of interest which could
potentially bias their opinions – for example funding or employment.
- All named authors on the articles should confirm that they have jointly participated in the research and writing of the article, and that no author has been omitted from the list of authors.
- We require authors to warrant that their articles are original, have not been previously
published, and do not plagiarise or otherwise copy someone else’s work without attribution. (If the article is a translation, we are happy to consider this for publication but the authors must inform the editors on submission).
- We also require authors to warrant that their article does not defame, libel, or bring another
person into disrepute, and neither does it contain anything illegal (e.g. copyright infringing).
