Research and Publication Ethics

Manuscripts are considered if they are submitted only to Journal of Musculoskeletal Science and Technology and therefore should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere, either in part or in whole, in any language, without the consent of Journal of Musculoskeletal Science and Technology. Authors are responsible for the scientific context and legal aspects of the articles. Each author also accepts that the Journal of Musculoskeletal Science and Technology will not be held legally responsible for any claims of compensation.

Authors wishing to include figures or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright holder(s) and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.

The editors reserve the right to reject manuscripts that do not comply with the abovementioned requirements. The author(s) will be held responsible for false statements or failure to fulfill the above-mentioned requirements.

Research articles and case studies involving human and animal subjects must conform to the policy statement with respect to the Declaration of Helsinki.
