Author Guidelines

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) has quoted that, an “author” is generally considered to be someone who has made substantive intellectual contributions to a published study; and biomedical authorship continues to have important academic, social and financial implications1. In the past, readers were rarely provided with information about contributions to studies from persons listed as authors and in Acknowledgments2.

The ICMJE has recommended the following criteria for authorship.

A) Substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data;

B) Drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and

C) Final approval of the version to be published.
