For the integrity of authorship, authors’ names shall have to be listed in accordance with the contributions the authors have made to research and manuscript preparation.

Article Six: Multiple Submissions of the Manuscript
The author(s) shall not be allowed to submit a manuscript which has already been published, accepted for publication elsewhere, or submitted elsewhere for review.

The author(s) shall have to strive to revise their manuscript in accordance with the feedback and suggestions provided by the reviewers and/or the Editorial Board during the review and journal editing process. If the authors disagree with a requested revision, they shall have to provide, in writing, relevant evidence and justification for not making the requested change.
I, hereby, agree to the ethics standards for research and publication as stated above.
