All content information of an accepted paper is strictly confidential and cannot appear in the media (in print or electronic form) before its embargo date and time. Authors/researchers, their respective public relations representatives and funding sponsors may not distribute or promote their work to the media prior to embargo.
If an embargo break is the result of any action by an author/researcher, he/she risks withdrawal of publication of his/her manuscript. Violations of the embargo policy may also jeopardize future acceptance of manuscripts to be published in the journal.
Generally, embargoes on journal articles lift the day and the time the article is published.
Although the Editorial Office will endeavor to notify authors of the anticipated publication date/time, it will not be responsible for any consequences of early online posting with regard to the intellectual property rights. To safeguard their intellectual property, authors should ensure that appropriate reports of invention and patent applications have been filed before the manuscript is accepted.
Requests for permission to reproduce figures, tables or portions of articles originally published in Annals and Essences of Dentistry can be obtained via the Editorial Office.
Manuscripts submitted to Advances in Medical Ethics should not contain material previously published in other publications, except as an abstract, and must not be currently under consideration for publication in another journal. Redundant publication is publication of a paper that overlaps substantially with one already published. When submitting a paper, authors should make a full statement to the editor about all submissions and previous reports that might be regarded as redundant publication of the same or similar work.
The authors should alert the editor if the work includes subjects about whom a previous report has been published. Copies of such material should be included with the submitted paper to help the editor decide how to handle the matter. If redundant publication is attempted without such notification, authors should expect editorial action to be taken; at the least, the manuscript will be rejected.
Authors and referees are asked to declare any competing interests.
Original Contributions submitted by the editor-in-chief and any of the associate editors are handled by a Consulting Editor or by another editor, who makes all decisions about the manuscript (including choice of referees and ultimate acceptance or rejection).
The entire process is handled confidentially.
All manuscripts submitted from the Editor's home institution are also handled entirely by a Consulting Editor or by another editor from a different institution. The Editor (in Chief) and/or Associate Editors may additionally, from time to time, refer a manuscript to a Consulting Editor to avoid a real or reasonably perceived conflict of interest.
Ethics and Consent
Annals and Essences of Dentistry considers research and publication misconduct to be a serious breach of ethics, and will take such actions as necessary to address such misconduct. Authors should refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors for full information.
