Ethical Consideration:

Our Editorial Board requires that the high standards are maintained. The requirements are in the areas of Human and Animal Rights, Conflict of Interest, Informed Consent, and Copyright and Plagiarism.

Human and Animal Rights:

Authors are required to State that all procedures were followed according to the ethical standards of human experimentation and the Helsinki declaration revised in 2013 (available at: https://www.wma.net/policies-post/wma-declaration-of-helsinki-ethical-principles-for-medical-research-involving-human-subjects/), and informed consent was obtained from all cases included in the research.

For Animal studies it should be stated that all guidelines for care and use of laboratory animals were followed.

Conflict of Interest:

The authors should declare separately by name that has no conflict of interest. Otherwise, submitting a manuscript must be accompanied with a statement from the authors disclosing all financial and personnel relationship that might bias their work. Besides, they are requested to evident whether impending conflicts do or do not exist. A separate page should cover this proclamation and if there are further details, could be mentioned in covering letter. You can download the JHEHP Form for Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest by clicking here.

Informed consent:

Informed consent of the patients participating in the study should be undertaken. All individuals have individual rights that are not to be infringed. Individual participants in studies have, for example, the right to decide what happens to the (identifiable) personal data gathered, to what they have said during a study or an interview, as well as to any photograph that was taken.

Hence it is important that all participants gave their informed consent in writing prior to inclusion in the study. Identifying details (names, dates of birth, identity numbers and other information) of the participants that were studied should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and genetic profiles unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the participant (or parent or guardian if the participant is incapable) gave written informed consent for publication. Complete anonymity is difficult to achieve in some cases, and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt.

Copyright and Plagiarism

Accepted manuscripts become the permanent property of the Journal and may not be reproduced, in whole or in part, without the written per-mission of the Editor.

JHEHP is a participant of Crossref Similarity Check powered by iThenticate. It is a multi-publisher plagiarism detection initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality. iThenticate consists of two products: a database of scholarly publications (CrossCheck) and a web-based tool (iThenticate) to check an authored work against that database.

JHEHP use these services to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Results returned by the software may be used as a criterion for the analysis of the manuscript by the editorial board and may eventually result in a rejection due to plagiarism, duplicate and/or redundant publicationPlagiarism of text from a previously published manuscript by the same or another author is a serious publication offence. Small amounts of text may be used, but only where the source of the material quoted is clearly acknowledged and the text is inserted in quotation mark. If there is an allegation of plagiarism, scientific misconduct or fraud, the journal will follow the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics/COPE (http://publicationethics.org/) and International Committee of Medical Journal Editors/ICMJE (http://www.icmje.org/).

Authors' Contributions 

Individuals claiming authorship should meet all of the conditions in accordance with the "International Committee of Medical Journal Editors" (available at: http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/browse/roles-and-responsibilities/defining-the-role-of-authors-and-contributors.html). Individuals claiming authorship should meet all 4 of the following conditions:
1. Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; AND
2. Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content; AND
3. Final approval of the version to be published; AND
4. Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.
         Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content. Allowing one’s name to appear as an author without having contributed significantly to the study or adding the name of an individual who has not contributed or who has not agreed to the work in its current form is considered a breach of appropriate authorship.
         Ghost-writing is NOT acceptable. No one, other than the authors listed below, should have contributed substantially to the writing and revising of the manuscript. Contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the acknowledgment. Examples include: individuals who allowed their laboratory experience to be included, a person who provided purely technical help, copyediting, proofreading or translation assistance (NO ghostwriters allowed), or a department Chair who provided only general support. Groups of persons who have contributed materially to the paper, but whose contributions do not justify authorship may be listed under a heading such as “participating investigators,” and their function or contribution should be described; for example, “served as scientific advisors,” “critically reviewed the study proposal”. If you have any question about this, contact that editorial office before submitting your manuscript at jhehp@zums.ac.ir or jhehpinfo@gmail.com.
