Publication Ethics

Manuscripts are considered with the understanding that they are submitted solely to the "Iran J Nucl Med" and have not been published elsewhere previously either in print or electronic format, and are not under consideration by another publication or electronic medium. Submission of an article for publication implies the transfer of the copyright from the authors to the "Iran J Nucl Med" upon acceptance. The final decision of acceptance rests with the Editor. Authors are responsible for all statements made in their papers. All accepted papers become the permanent property of the "Iran J Nucl Med" and you may not modify copy, distribute, transmit, display, or publish elsewhere without written permission from the "Iran J Nucl Med". Authors should refrain from contacting the mass media about papers that are being peer reviewed or in press; the Editor reserves the right to withdraw an article from publication if it is given media coverage at any stage of the review/publication process.

Ethical considerations will be taken into account in the assessment of papers that have experimental investigations of human or animal subjects. Authors should state in the Methods section of the manuscript that informed consent was obtained from all human adult participants and from the parents or legal guardians of minors and an appropriate institutional review board approved the project. Those investigators without such review boards should ensure that the principles outlined in the Declaration of Helsinki have been followed.

Iran J Nucl Med is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
