• Researchers who made a substantial contribution to the design and execution of the work, as well as interpretation of the obtained results, should be listed as authors. All authors should have read, and be familiar with, the reported work, and should approve the submission of the paper and the accepted version of the publication. Other contributors to the research, or to preparation of the publication, should be listed in an acknowledgement section.
