This journal adheres to the ethical guidelines for research and publication described in ‘Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals: Writing and Editing for Biomedical Publication’(http://www.icmje.org; International Committee of Medical Journal Editors [ICMJE]), ‘Good Publication Practice Guidelines for Medical Journals’(http://kamje.or.kr/publishing_ethics.html; Korean Association of Medical Journal Editors [KAMJE]), and ‘Guidelines on Good Publication’(http://publicationethics.org/resources/guidelines; Committee on Publication Ethics [COPE]).
Clinical research studies must state that the work was done in accordance with the Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects outlines in the Helsinki Declaration in 1975 (revised 2013). Clinical Studies that do not meet the Helsinki Declaration will not be considered for publication. Human subjects must not be identifiable. Patients’ name, initials, hospital number, date of birth, or other protected healthcare information must not be disclosed. Animal research studies must state that the work was performed according to National or Institutional Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, and the ethical treatment of all experimental animals must be observed.
Ensure correct use of the terms sex (when reporting biological factors) and gender (identity, psychosocial or cultural factors), and, unless inappropriate, report the sex or gender of study participants, the sex of animals or cells, and describe the methods used to determine sex or gender. If the study was done involving an exclusive population, for example in only one sex, authors should justify why, except in obvious cases (e.g., prostate cancer). Authors should define how they determined race or ethnicity and justify their relevance.
All authors must have made a significant intellectual contribution to the manuscript according to the criteria formulated by the ICMJE. Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content. Authorship credit should be based on 1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; 3) final approval of the version to be published; and 4) 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. All authors should meet criteria 1, 2, 3, and 4. General supervision of the research group is not sufficient for authorship. All authors must state they have approved the final draft submitted. Any changes to the author list after submission, such as a change in the order of the authors, or the deletion or addition of authors, needs to be approved by a letter requesting the change signed by all the authors participating.
The journal publishes the original articles, case reports/ case series, review articles, editorials, correspondence, and articles commissioned by the Editorial Committee which are related to basic or clinical research on trauma.
