This Journal uses the COPE's flowcharts and guidelines. It also follows the guidelines mentioned in the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals issued by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) (
Authorship Criteria and Contribution
 The journal adheres to the definition of authorship set up by The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). The ICMJE recommends that authorship should be based on the following 4 criteria: i) Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; ii) Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content; iii) Final approval of the version to be published; and iv) Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.
The authors also must certify that the manuscript represents valid data, has not been published in any form, and is not being submitted in the form of scientific presentations for publication elsewhere.

All authors must sign the  Toloo-e-Behdasht  Authorship Form (typed or printed name is not acceptable) and include the form on initial submission. 

Conflict of interest
All authors must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work. If you have no competing interests please state 'I/We have no conflict of 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 publication of their paper.
At the time of submission, the corresponding author must include a disclosure statement in the body of the manuscript. All authors are required to disclose all potential conflicts of interest, including specific financial interests, relationships, and affiliations (other than those affiliations listed in the title page of the manuscript) relevant to the subject of their manuscript. This information should be provided under the heading titled ‘Conflicts of interest’, which should appear after the ‘Author contributions’ section and before the ‘References’ section. Authors without conflicts of interest, including specific financial interests, relationships, and affiliations relevant to the subject of their manuscript, should include a statement of "I/We have no conflict of interests" in the Disclosure section of the manuscript. Failure to include this information in the manuscript may delay the evaluation and review process.
Scientific Misconducts

Fabrication: Fabrication is the intentional misrepresentation of research results by making up data, such as that reported in a journal article. As with other forms of scientific misconduct, its intent is to deceive. This marks fabrication as highly unethical and different from scientists self-deceiving. In some jurisdictions, fabrication may be illegal.

Falsification: Falsified evidence can be created by either side in a case (including the police/prosecution in a criminal case) or by someone sympathetic to one side. Misleading by suppressing evidence can also be considered a form of false evidence (by omission).

Plagiarism: Plagiarism of text from a previously published manuscript by the same or another author is a serious publication offence. Small amounts of text may be used, but only where the source of the material is quoted and clearly acknowledged. Fraudulent data or data stolen from other authors are also unethical and will be treated accordingly. Any alleged offence is considered initially by the Editorial Board.

 The journal employs a plagiarism detection system to check all manuscripts for plagiarism against previously published works.
