THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE EDITOR
The editor is responsible for what they publish and must ensure that the journal is respected through ethical behavior:
THE DUTIES OF THE REVIEWERS
The author is responsible for the information presented in the article. Authorship has important academic, social, and financial implications.
The journal adheres to the recommendations of ICMJE in determining the role and responsibilities of the author. ICMJE recommends authorship based on the following 4 criteria:
All authors must meet all four criteria of authorship.
Those who do not meet all four criteria, but have helped in the study, should be acknowledged and listed in the confirmation section, indicating the contribution made during the study or writing the article. For example, assistance in obtaining financial support, secretarial assistance, proofreading, administrative support, laboratory assistance and more.
Since acknowledgment may imply endorsement by acknowledged individuals of the data and findings of the study, editors are encouraged to require that the corresponding author obtain written permission for confirmation from all acknowledged individuals.
The corresponding author is the person who is primarily responsible for communicating with the journal in the process of submitting the manuscript, reviewing and publishing, and usually ensures that all administrative requirements of the journal are met. An appropriate author should be available throughout the submission and review process to respond to editorial requests promptly. After publication, it should be available to respond to criticism of the work and respond to any journal inquiries about data or additional information if questions about the work arise after publication.
