Authorship Criteria

Everyone listed as an author should meet our criteria for authorship. Everyone who meets our criteria for authorship must be listed as an author, and the contributions of all authors must be reported. 

We expect that all authors will take public responsibility for the content of the manuscript submitted to IJHS. 

All authors should be listed in the Contributors submission form before peer review. If a submission’s authorship changes during peer review or revisions, the author fields in the Contributors submission form should be updated

All authors will be contacted by email to ensure that they are aware of and approve the submission of the manuscript, its content, and its authorship. IJHS require that all co-authors confirm their assent to publication by email. Please contact the journal office if you have concerns about a submission’s authorship.
