Therefore, if it is necessary to identify a patient in a case report, illustration or paper, the Editors require that the authors obtain and provide a written consent form from the patient or his/her legal guardian to publish their data, including photographs, results of imaging tests, etc., prior to publication.
For animal experimentation reported in the Journal, it is expected that investigators will have observed the Interdisciplinary Principles and Guidelines for the Use of Animals in Research, Testing, and Education issued by the New York Academy of Sciences’ Ad hoc Committee on Animal Research.
All human and animal studies must have been approved by the primary investigator’s institutional review board prior to submission of the manuscript to the journal for review. Manuscripts including the results of examination of patients, involving a risk element, must have a copy of the written approval issued by the ethical committee attached.
