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.
