Conflict of Interest

For authors: Authors must declare any potential conflict of interest in related to the research when submitting the manuscript, including academic competition, and financial benefits. For example, authors could provide a list of recused reviewers if there is potential conflict of interest.

For editors: Editors should assess their own potential conflicts, and avoid participating in the whole article operation process when conflicts exist. An example of possible conflicts is having a working or personal relationship with any author.

For reviewers: Reviewers should avoid relationship with any author. If they feel unable to be objective (e.g., having a financial interest in the subject of the work), they must declare potential interest, and decline to review the manuscript. Reviewers have the right to recommend other reviewers, and the Editorial Office has preserved the right of acceptance.
