Authorship Criteria

In accordance with the International Journal of Emerging Trends in Education (IJETE) guidelines, authorship is defined by the following criteria:

1. Substantial contributions to the conception and design, acquisition of data, analysis and interpretation of data.
2. Drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content.
3. Final approval of the version to be published.
4. Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work, ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

In the case of large multicenter groups, the group should identify the individuals who accept direct responsibility for the manuscript, and these individuals must fully meet the above criteria for authorship.

Note that acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of the research group does not qualify an individual to be an author. All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgment section. This includes those who provide technical support, writing assistance, or departmental support. It is essential that all individuals named in the acknowledgment section have given permission to be acknowledged.

By adhering to these guidelines, we ensure the integrity and transparency of the authorship process.
