PUBLICATION ETHICS:

A main obligation of each author is to provide a new investigation of a present interest that is discussed objectively.

Each author must cite every publication that is laying in the basis of his article and that will quickly engage the reader to the main hypothesis, which is essential for the understanding in depth of the manuscript.
