Authorship has important academic, social, and financial implications, as well as responsibility for the published work. Recommendations for authors who wish to prepare their work, scientific article, manuscript or research for publication in international journals.
International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) are designed to ensure that contributors who have made significant intellectual contributions to an article are credited as authors, and that contributors identified as authors understand their role in taking responsibility and being responsibility for what is published.
To claim authorship
of a manuscript, the following criteria must be met:
- make a significant contribution
to the concept of work;
- obtain, analyze or interpret data in the published work;
- participate in the project or make comments on the content of the work;
- participate in the approval of the work for publication;
- be responsible for all aspects of the work, ensuring proper investigation and resolution of issues related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work.
Those who have contributed to the work, but are not entitled to claim authorship, should be listed in the acknowledgments.
Any change to the list of authors must be approved by all authors. The author
should act as a liaison between the editor and other authors and should inform and involve co-authors in important decisions regarding publication.
Because authorship does not report what contribution made a person an author, some journals now solicit and publish information about the contribution of each person listed as participating in a submitted study, at least for original research. Editors are strongly encouraged to develop and implement a participation policy.
To facilitate proper peer review of your manuscript, it is important that it be submitted in grammatically correct English.
If you are a non-native English speaker, we recommend that your manuscript
be professionally edited before submission by a native English speaker. This can be done by our agency`s editing
service. Professional editing will make it easier for authors and future readers to read and evaluate the content of submitted manuscripts. Our translation agency employs experienced editors and proofreaders
