ETHICS IN PUBLISHING

  • Authorship

    Authorship credit should be based on:

    • substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, analysis, and interpretation of data.
    • drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content.
    • final approval of the version to be published.

    Authors should meet all three conditions. All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgments section. All persons must give written permission to be acknowledged.

     

    Copyright

    Authors retain copyright and grant AHM right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgement of the work’s authorship and initial publication in this journal.

     

    Preventing scientific misconduct

    By submitting the manuscript for publication the author agrees, that the manuscript could be subjected to verification by internet plagiarism detection software. All detected cases of scientific misconduct will be disclosed, including notification of proper institutions.

     

    Conflict of interests

    Authors must disclose all conflicts of interest (which can have influence for value of article) to the Editor and describe them in dedicated form, which is a part of the submitting process. The reviewers and editors are also obliged to disclose in a letter to Editor-in-chief all connections which could be suspected as conflict of interests with the author. If no conflict of interest exists, the authors should include a phrase: The authors do not report any financial or personal connections with other persons or organizations, which might negatively affect the contents of this publication and/or claim authorship rights to this publication (an example).
