Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- All persons who meet authorship criteria are listed as authors, and all authors certify that they have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content, including participation in the concept, design, analysis, writing, or revision of the manuscript.
- The corresponding author will receive an edited paper for checking before it is published. Authors should keep in mind that proofreading is their responsibility. Corrections should therefore be clear and unambiguous. The main aim of proofreading is to correct errors and not to modify the content of the paper.
