-    In case the work was conducted by a large group of authors and contributors, only the individuals who accept the responsibility for the manuscript will meet the criteria for authorship.
-    All individuals who qualify for authorship must be listed as authors and each author should have a significant contribution to the work in order to be listed as such.
-    Contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship must be listed in the acknowledgment section.
