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- The author(s) ensure that the contribution is original and unpublished and is not being evaluated in other journal(s);
- The article must be presented in Microsoft Word format or RTF provided that it does not exceed 2MB;

- The identification of the article’s author must be removed from the file and the Properties option in Microsoft Word;
- Frames, graphs, tables or illustrations shall be submitted with their captions, quoting the source and legend;
- Units of measure shall follow the standards of the International System (SI) developed by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) [www.bipm.org];
- By being responsible for the content of the article submitted to the journal, the author authorizes its publication.
- Number of authors: A maximum of four authors per paper is allowed. Authors may not be changed (removed, added or replaced) after online submission. Authorship change requests will result in filing of the paper. If there is more than one author, please name the author in charge to whom our editorial correspondence may be sent and who will follow the submission process.
Criteria for authorship: According to criteria adapted from the ICMJE (1985), only authors who have participated to a sufficient degree in the development of the work, from research planning to its dissemination, may be given credit as such, thus assuming public responsibility for its content. Authorship credits should be based exclusively on substantial contributions to:
(i) design, planning, analysis or interpretation of data;
(ii) paper writing or critical intellectual review; and
(iii) responsibility for the final approval for publication.All conditions (i, ii and iii) must be met. Minor contributions such as the suggestion of references, data analysis, or editing support do not guarantee authorship credit. These and other contributions to the work may be recognized separately in the form of “Acknowledgments” if the authors so wish. However, acknowledgments should not be included in the paper submission, but only added to the manuscript after it was accepted for publication.
