The first criteria, originality and high scientific quality were determined in the articles that were planned to be published in the journal. All articles submitted to the journal are passed through the double-blind review process. In the event of a dispute between the referees, the article will be forwarded to a third referee or an editorial board member. The final decision-making authority of all articles in the decision-making process is the editorial board. Opinions and ideas expressed in articles published in the journal are the opinions of authors only. The responsibility of the published content belongs to the authors. The editorial board and the publisher cannot undertake the responsibility of the published articles. The similarity in articles -"Plagiarism"- has been tested for all articles. Documents with inappropriate will be returned to the authors. The manuscripts will need to be unpublished in another magazine, book, or any other media before. For the studies presented in scientific congresses, the full name, date, and place of the congress should be stated in the "Title Page".
The ICMJE suggests that the authors meet the following four criteria: 1. To contribute to the content of the work/design and collection, analysis, and interpretation of data for study; 2. To have drafted the writing essay or have made critical reviews with important intellectual content; 3. To have reviewed and approved the last version of the article before its publication; 4. To accept the responsibility for all aspects of working to ensure that questions concerning the validity and validity of any part of the work are properly investigated and resolved.
JOSAM assumes that each person in the list of articles submitted is defined as a writer in the scope specified above, in accordance with the signed statement of the responsible author. JOSAM refers to existing or potential conflicts of interest, including financial, institutional, and other relationships that may lead to potential conflicts of interest or prejudices in the evaluation process of the presented articles. The authors agree to be sent for the publication of the manuscript and transferred to JOSAM in accordance with the signed statement of the responsible author. The rejected articles will be returned to their authors. Authors who use previously published content, including pictures, tables, or other content in printed or electronic format, must obtain permission from the copyright owner. Legal, financial, and criminal liability in this respect is the property of the authors. There is no fee for writing articles, evaluating articles, accepting, and publishing articles.
In this context, the consolidated form "Copyright Transfer, Conflict of Interest and Financial Disclosure Statements", which is available at "statement" containing author contributions, potential conflicts of interest, and right of publication, A sample signed by the author must be uploaded to the system along with the text.
Helsinki Declaration and Informed consent
In all studies with the "human" element, the principle of complying with the "Helsinki declaration principles" is sought. In such researches, the authors refer to the "Methods and methods" section of the study in accordance with the "Helsinki Declaration principles", Ethical committee approval, and "informed consent" by those participating in the study. The institution and number/date information for the ethics committee approval should only be given on the title page. If "Animal" substance is used in the study, authors are obliged to indicate that they are working in accordance with the principles of "manuals and methods for the use of laboratory animals" and to conduct research in accordance with ethical rules. Committee of experiments used by animals, the institution, and number/date information concerning the Ethical committee approval of the experimental animals should only be given on the title page. In case-report presentations, it should be noted that "informed consent" has been received independently of the patient's identity. Patients have privacy rights that should not be violated without receiving informed consent. The identification of the information, including the patient's name, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs unless necessary for scientific purposes, and the patient (or parent or guardian) written for publication informed consent. The notified consent for this purpose requires that an identifiable patient be presented with the published manuscript. The Authors should identify the individuals who help the authors and disclose the resources of this help. Specifying details should be skipped when they are not required. However, it is difficult to obtain complete anonymity, and if you have doubts, informed consent should be taken. For example, the eye area mask in photos of patients is insufficient protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note.
