• The information of all the authors, including first name, last name, ORCID, affiliation, email, address, etc should enter on the journal's website when the article is submitted to the journal.
What is ORCID
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors, and national boundaries and its cooperation with other identifiers systems.
Why use ORCID
As researchers and scholars, you face the ongoing challenge of distinguishing your research activities from those of others with similar names. You need to be able to easily and uniquely attach your identity to research objects such as datasets, equipment, articles, media stories, citation, experiments, patents, and notebooks. As you collaborate across disciplines, institutions, and borders, you must interact with an increasing number and diversity of research information systems. Entering data over and over again can be time-consuming, and often frustrating.
Affiliations should be corrected based on the journal’s format as below:
Department, School, University, City, Country
Example: Research Center for Environmental Health Technology, School of Public Health, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.
Authors, contributions: Author contributions should be clarified based on the following items:(Full Name)
Writing – original draft:
Writing – review & editing:
Add author names in front of each above-mentioned contributor role if applicable. For “role definition” of the above-mentioned items see the following link:
Competing interests: Authors must acknowledge and declare any sources of funding and potential conflicting interest, such as receiving funds or fees by, or holding stocks and shares in an organization that may profit or lose through the publication of your paper. Declaring a competing interest will not lead to the automatic rejection of the paper, but we would like to be made aware of it.
Ethical issue: Ethical considerations must be addressed after the acknowledgments section. 1) Please state that informed consent was obtained from all human adult participants and from the parents or legal guardians of minors. Include the name of the appropriate institutional review board that approved the project. 2) Indicate in the text that the maintenance and care of experimental animals comply with National Institutes of Health guidelines for the humane use of laboratory animals, or those of your Institute or agency.
