Publication Ethics

This journal follows the guidelines set forth by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and the International Committee in dealing with all aspects of publication ethics, particularly how to handle research cases and publication errors. All research must be conducted with ethical standards and comply with local regulations and standards for supervision and approval.
