Ethical Clearance

All manuscripts submitted containing animal experiments and/or involving human subjects should have been approved by an independent ethics committee. Ethical clearance may also be issued by the Research Ethics Committee of the educational institution, including an ethical clearance number. A copy of the approval should be provided to the editorial journal as indicated above.

The Editors reserve the right to judge the appropriateness of the use and treatment of humans or animals in experiments for publication in the journal.
