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: www.wma.net/en/30publications/10policies/b3/), 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:
Conflict of interest should include each author separately. The authors should declare separately by name that has no conflict 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.

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details (names, dates of birth, identity numbers and other information) of the participants that were studied should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and genetic profiles unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the participant (or parent or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 the service 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 publication.
