Authorship

Only those who contributed significantly to the concept, form or implementation of the study submitted are considered authors and/or joint authors or co-authors of the article. All co-authors must be clearly indicated in the manuscript wording at the time the manuscript is submitted. Requests for the addition of joint authors after the manuscript has been accepted must be approved by the editors. The lead author of the study must guarantee that all co-authors have had the final wording of the manuscript at their disposal and that they have approved the text and agreed to submit that version for publication. Other persons partially participating in the study must be mentioned in the relevant part of the manuscript and their contribution explained.

 

Objectivity, originality and references to sources

Authors are responsible for their manuscript’s originality and truthfulness. Where text from another work or a quotation from another work, either their own or by other authors, has been included, the authors must duly note such works in accordance with copyright law. Authors must always cite the sources they use in accordance with rules of quotation used in the Ortodoncie journal. Authors must cite any publications or other works that significantly influenced the form of their manuscript, even if they are not used verbatim. Where the manuscript is the outcome of original research, it is necessary to cite in the text the source data, so that any knowledge resulting from the research can be replicated and developed further. Original research outcomes must be objectively evaluated by authors according to their best opinion. The expression of fraudulent and intentionally inaccurate statements and the use of other works without proper citation and not in accordance with copyright are considered unethical conduct, and are, therefore, unacceptable. In case authors discover a significant error or inaccuracy in their published work, they are obliged to inform journal editors without delay and cooperate with either publishing a correction or withdrawing their work. This does not apply if the inaccuracy or error is due to newly acquired knowledge that was not at the reasonable disposal of the authors when writing the original article. If studies or original research which served as the basis for the manuscript were financed from external resources, authors must explicitly cite the source of funding. The editorial board reserves the right to require information on research funding from internal resources or the personal resources of an author. This author’s obligation to disclose relates also to possible substantial conflicts of interest (such as when manuscript content is directly related to an employment relationship with an entity that the content of the manuscript is related to, or any other kind of cooperation by the author or a person close to them, etc.). A more detailed explanation of conflict of interest can be found in Section 8: Conflicts of interest.  Authors must indicate explicitly that they do not have a conflict of interest when they submit their manuscript.

 

Concurrent submissions for publication and repeated publication

Authors must not take any steps leading to the publication of their study, the main part of the study or another study describing the same research concurrently in the Ortodoncie journal and another Czech or foreign periodical or non-periodical journal, or any other kind of scientific output. Any attempt to concurrently or repeatedly publish the same manuscript is considered unethical and unacceptable. Authors must observe the rules of peer review. They must react to comments by editors and reviewers without delay and within an agreed timeframe. They agree to amend their manuscripts in line with the reviewers’ suggestions. Authors undertake to follow formatting guidelines as specified in Section 12: Instructions for authors. Any breach of these rules or failure to meet the deadline for manuscript amendment may result in the journal’s refusal to publish the text. The decision is made by the editors of the journal.

 

Patients and research participants

Patients have the right to privacy that cannot be infringed without their informed consent. Identifying information including names must not appear in descriptions or photographs. The only exception is when the information is significant for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or legal representative) has given written informed consent to publish it. In such a case, the identifiable patient must be provided with the manuscript to be published. When informed consent is obtained, this fact must be noted in the published text. Authors should inform patients if there is a possibility that after publication any material by which patients could be identified could become available on-line or in printed form. Patient consent must be in writing and must be archived, either in the journal editorial office or by authors, or both, according to local regulations and law. Unimportant identification details should be omitted. If there is any doubt that anonymity can be guaranteed, it is necessary to obtain the informed consent of the patient or legal representative. For example, covering the eyes in photographs of patients is considered insufficient protection of anonymity.  If identifying characteristics are altered in order to secure anonymity, e.g. in genetic pedigrees, authors must guarantee that the alterations do not bias the scientific substance, and editors should note these guarantees. The requirement of an informed consent is a part of guidelines for authors of the given journal.  All information on informed consent is provided in Section 11: Informed consent. Together with their manuscript, authors must submit a declaration that they have observed the rules of informed consent. On the editors’ request, they are obliged to produce informed consent forms for the subjects who took part in the research.
