1. In the case of human subjects, researchers have the following responsibilities.

  • 1) The researcher should ensure the subject's willingness to participate in the study.
  • 2) The researcher should fully inform the subject of the purpose and procedure of the study, the expected effects, and the potential harms before obtaining consent.
  • 3) The researcher should ensure the safety and health of the subject. Take precautions to avoid even minor damage to the subject and immediately stop the study if an unexpected harm arises.
  • 4) If the subject is a patient, the control group should also be informed about new interventions to avoid information concealment or deprivation of opportunity.
  • 5) The researcher should ensure the rights of subjects to withdraw their participation during the study.
  • 6) The researcher should protect the privacy of the subject.
  • 7) The researcher must obtain a written consent from the subject with prior approval from the Institutional Review Board. The journal recommends that relevant documents be submitted to the editorial board.

  • 1) Fabrication: making up data or research results and recording or reporting them
  • 2) Falsification: manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or altering or omitting data or results so that the research is not accurately represented in the research record

  • 4) Unethical authorship: not giving authorship credit to people who have made scientific or technical contribution to study or giving authorship credit to people who have not contributed to the study

3. The researcher shall not commit violations such as duplicate publication or duplicate submission. Papers published in other journals or manuscripts submitted to other journals cannot be submitted to this journal. Similarly, papers published in this journal or manuscripts being submitted cannot be published in other journals.
