Guidelines & Policies
Ethical publication ethics stems from ethical research and is augmented with ethical review. JAPA thus accepts manuscripts of human research that follow the World Medical Association (WMA) Declaration of Helsinki (2008) and comply with 2016 International ethical guidelines for health-related research involving humans for clinical research provided by The Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS) and, when relevant, the WMA Declaration of Taipei.
As a result, the authors are responsible to demonstrate sufficient compliance to ethical principles by showing a document of approval from the relevant Ethics Committee (EC) or Institutional Review Board (IRB). At the same time, all parties involved in the publication process, namely reviewers, journal editors and journal staff are obligated to follow the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing guided by the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE).
