Ethical Policy > For Authors and Reviewers > Ethical Policy



If there are risks of exposing patients’ identity, such as face photos, written informed consent must be obtained from the patients or their guardians and then be submitted to the editorial board. When reporting experiments on human subjects that could involve mental and physical damages, authors must obtain written consent from subjects or their guardians after explaining the purpose of study and all possible physical and psychological damages before the experiment is conducted, according to the Helsinki Declaration (http://www.wma.net). If the study subjects are animals, authors must describe the measures taken to ease pain and inconvenience to the subjects, and indicate that the experiment processes do not breach the regulations of the ethics committee of the concerned research institute or the NIH Guide for the Care and Use of laboratory Animals. The reviewers and the editorial committee have the right to ask authors to submit a letter of consent or permission of the ethical committee, if deemed necessary. Screening and assessment procedures in violation of ethics code, such as breach of ethics, plagiarism, duplicate publication, and research misconduct, are carried out in accordance with the Good Publication Practice Guidelines for Medical Journals of the Korean Association of Medical Journal Editors (http://www.kamje.or.kr).
