  • Research and publication ethics

For policies on research and publication ethics not stated in these instructions, Guidelines on Good Publication (Committee on Publication Ethic (COPE), or Publication Ethics Policies for Medical Journals (World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) or can be applied.

Conflict of Interest
Conflicts of interest/Disclosure statements, if applicable, must be completed with all submissions using the appropriate electronic form in Contribution rules of Journal homepage or the printed form in the Journal. Disclosure is not intended to prevent authors with potential conflicts of interest from contributing to the Neurointervention; rather it places on record any relationship that may exist with mentioned or competing products or firms. Disclosed information will be held in confidence during the review process and the Editors will determine the nature of any printed disclosure accompanying a published article. Authors are responsible for notifying the Journal of financial arrangements including, but not limited to, agreements for research support, speaker bureaus, consulting, or ownership interests.
Neurointervention defines an "author" as a person whose participation in the work is sufficient for taking public responsibility for all portions of the content. Specifically, all authors should have made substantial contributions to all of the following:
(1) conception and design of the study, acquisition of the data, or analysis and interpretation of the data; (2) drafting of the article or critical revision of the article for important intellectual content; and (3) final approval of the version to be submitted.
If any persons who do not meet above four criteria, they may be placed as contributors in Acknowledgments section. Description of co-first authors or co-corresponding authors is also accepted if corresponding author believes that their roles are equally contributed.
The corresponding author takes primary responsibility for communication with the journal during the manuscript submission, peer review, and publication process, and typically ensures that all the journal's administrative requirements, such as providing details of authorship, ethics committee approval, clinical trial registration documentation, and gathering conflict of interest forms and statements, are properly completed, although these duties may be delegated to one or more coauthors.
Manuscripts involving examinations of volunteers and patients must include a statement that the trial protocol has been approved by an institutional ethics review board (IRB) and that the subjects gave informed consent thus meets the standards of the Declaration of Helsinki in its revised version that the World Medical Association has developed as a statement of ethical principles for medical research involving human subjects, including research on identifiable human material and data ( Clinical studies that do not meet the Helsinki Declaration will not be considered for publication. Human subjects should not be identifiable, such that patients. names, initials, hospital numbers, dates of birth, or other protected healthcare information should not be disclosed. For animal experiments, it is expected that investigators will adhere to the 'Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.'
Copyright and Permissions
Neurointervention accepts manuscripts describing original research only. The editorial office of Neurointervention does not accept duplicate submission or redundant publication. Redundant (or duplicate) publication is publication of a paper that overlaps substantially with one already published in print or electronic media as defined by updated ICMJE guidelines regarding allegations of scientific misconduct. If authors believe their manuscript may be redundant, they should ask about this in a letter to the editor accompanying their submission. In that letter, they should explain how their report overlaps with already published material, or how it differs. To help the editor determine the possibility of redundant publication, a copy of such published material may also be included. If excerpts from other copyrighted works are included, the author(s) must obtain written permission from the copyright owners and credit the source(s) in the article.
Clinical Trial Registration
Neurointervention requires investigators to register their clinical trials (other than phase 1 or small device feasibility trials) in a public trials registry. This requirement will lessen the chance of publication bias by making all trials (published or unpublished) available to clinicians, investigators, and the public, even those that are negative or reflect unfavorably on a research sponsor's product
Editorial Policies
Manuscripts are examined by the editor and usually evaluated by peer reviewers assigned by the editor. Both clinical and basic articles will also be subject to statistical review, when appropriate. Provisional or final acceptance is based on originality, scientific content, and topical balance of the journal. Manuscript decisions are based on the results of peer review, and to ensure that unbiased reviewers receive manuscripts with blind title pages. Decisions are communicated by email, generally within eight weeks. All rebuttals must be submitted in writing to the editorial office. Descriptions appearing in each article are the responsibility of the author and not of Neurointervention. Editorial board will continuously work for monitoring publication ethics and check manuscripts to confirm the originality.
