These ethical considerations should be taken into account by the respected authors:

Peer review process: The Journal's policy is that all content, with the exception of explicitly identified editorial materials, undergoes a rigorous peer review process. This involves seeking the perspective of specialists in the field to evaluate each manuscript.

Authorship of the Paper: When an author submits their manuscript to the Journal, they confirm that every individual named as an author has reviewed and approved the submission. It is expected that every author has played a significant role in the development of the paper, including contributing to the ideas, research, and writing. Furthermore, all authors must have carefully examined the content of the paper and given their final approval to the version being submitted for potential publication.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest: It is required that all submissions disclose any connections that may be perceived as posing a potential conflict of interest.

Source of Funding: It is required of all authors submitting original manuscripts to ILT that the possible source(s) of funding regarding their articles be clearly and explicitly stated at the end of their article.

Originality and Plagiarism: It is essential for authors to confirm that they have created completely original pieces of work, free from plagiarism and any unauthorized use of others’ work. In cases where they have incorporated the work(s) or words of others, they must properly and explicitly cite or quote the original source. This includes respecting copyright laws and obtaining necessary permissions for any reproduced content, such as figures or tables. Please be noted that prior to assigning the submitted manuscripts to reviewers, the similarity index of all manuscripts will be checked by iThenticate.

Data Access and Retention: When an author submits a paper, they may be requested to supply the raw data for evaluation purposes. It is expected that authors will be ready and able to make this data publicly accessible if needed.

Multiple Submissions: ILT Journal allows authors to submit multiple works at any given time. However, in case an author’s work is accepted for publication in one of the issues of ILT, the next work(s) by the same author will be published at least after two ILT issues have been published. For instance, if an author publishes a paper in ILT Vol. 12 Issue 1, their next accepted paper will be published in ILT Vol. 13 Issue 2.

Acknowledgement of Sources: It is essential to always acknowledge and properly recognize the contributions of other individuals.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works: If an author becomes aware of a major mistake or inaccuracy in their own published article, it is their responsibility to immediately inform the journal managing editor (, or and collaborate with the editor to rectify the paper.

Reporting Standards: Authors should accurately describe the research they have conducted and include an objective and clear evaluation of its significance and findings.

Hazards and Human Participants: It is necessary for authors to disclose if their work involved human participants and provide assurance of compliance with appropriate regulations and guidelines. If an author’s research deals with sensitive groups, an official research code of ethics is required.

Use of People’s Images or Case Details: It is essential to obtain volunteers’ informed consent and include the statement/documentation of this consent in the paper.

Research Misconduct and Retractions: The publisher and editor of the ILT Journal are committed to taking the necessary measures to recognize and stop the publication of papers where research misconduct, such as plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification/fabrication, has occurred. They will never support or enable such misconduct. If an allegation of research misconduct related to a published article in the journal arises, the publisher or editor will adhere to the guidelines set out by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) in addressing the issue.

It is possible for an article to be approved for publication but rejected later during the publication process, even after being made available in “Articles in Press” form. In such cases, all rights will return to the author.          

Complaints: In case of any complaints, please contact ILT at
