We are strongly committed to promoting the highest ethical publication practices and expect all corresponding authors to uphold the high standards of publication ethics set out by the Commission on Publication Ethics (COPE). Any cases of ethical misconduct will be dealt with following the COPE guidelines.

● The submission of the manuscript implies that it is the work of the Author(s), it has not been published before, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

● Individual contributions of each co-author should be clearly specified, and the manuscript should be approved by all co-authors.

● The Author(s) must ensure that all data in the submitted article are real and authentic.

● It is their responsibility to ensure that no participants were harmed, physically or mentally, during the research, which results in the article, and that the personal details of the participants were fully anonymized. This applies to both textual citations and images.

● Publications that have been influential in determining the research work and the reported results should be properly cited. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

● It is also their responsibility to check that all copyrighted material within the article has permission for publication.

● Authors should ensure that every manuscript submitted to the journal has been read and corrected for clarity, grammar, and spelling.

The corresponding author must sign a legally binding form confirming that the above standards have been met.
