The underlying data should be represented accurately. A paper should contain sufficient details and references to allow others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

Also, authors should provide a description of what each contributed, and this statement (information) will be published. All others who contributed to the work who are not authors should be named in the Acknowledgments, and what they did should be described.
  • Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects: If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the paper.
