Authorship criteria

According to the guidelines set forth by the ICMJE, authorship should adhere to the following principles:

  1. Making substantial contributions to the conception and design, acquisition or analysis of data, and interpretation of findings.
  2. Participating in drafting the article or critically revising it for important intellectual content.
  3. Providing final approval of the version to be published. Individuals meeting all three criteria are considered eligible for authorship.

Furthermore, authors must agree to take responsibility for all aspects of the work, ensuring the accuracy and integrity of every part. In cases where research involves a large multicenter group, those individuals directly responsible for the manuscript should be identified. They must fully satisfy the authorship criteria outlined above.

It's important to note that merely contributing to funding acquisition, data collection, or general supervision of the research group does not qualify an individual for authorship. Contributors who do not meet the authorship criteria should be acknowledged in the appropriate section of the manuscript.
