JAABR Editorial Policies

The Editor-in-Chief and the Members of the Editorial Board expect each author to have made an important scientific contribution to the study and be thoroughly familiar with the original data. The Editor-in-Chief and the Members of the Editorial Board also expect each author to have read the complete manuscript and to take responsibility for the content and completeness of the manuscript and to understand that if the paper, or part of the paper, is found to be faulty or fraudulent, that he/she shares responsibility with his/her coauthors. Because we hold each author to this high standard, the copyright form must be signed by every author.

Fair play

The Editor-in-Chief and the Members of the Editorial Board evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to the nature of the authors (including race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors) or the host institution.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be provided. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. (Refer of the Manuscript Submission Guidelines)

Authorship of the Paper

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.

The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
