Wherever applicable, authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The foundational data for the research presented and detailed in the article should be represented accurately within the article as a whole. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.
Data fundamental to the substance of an article, which was obtained during the course of original research, should be made available (in suitable form) to the editors upon request for independent verification, and, wherever possible, be made available to the article's readership upon its publication.
All manuscript submissions must be original works by the author(s) listed during the course of manuscript submission. Plagiarism in any form is, of course, not tolerated and can potentially result in the reporting of authors found to have plagiarized to the relevant professional authorities. Additionally, manuscripts submitted to this journal should be original is at least one other sense: they should not be reproductions or summaries (however carefully edited) of works previously published elsewhere. However, works such as a précis (an extended summary of a monograph or book) may be considered for publication.
Authors listed on an article and entered into our submission system during the uploading process should be limited to those who have made substantial contributions to the paper being submitted. If there are two or more authors on a paper, at least one author should be designated as the one to whom all correspondence should be directed - be it correspondence with Limina and editors assigned to the manuscript, or with its readership upon publication. The author so designated should be clearly indicated on the manuscript.
Aside from the use of AI during the course of analysis of data fundamental to a paper (which is deemed unnecessary to specifically disclose to the manuscript's assigned editors), the use of AI for the purposes of generating the actual written text of the manuscript under submission should be clearly indicated - whether in a special "acknowledgments" sections, or as a footnote in an appropriate place somewhere within the manuscript. It is strongly recommended that generative AI be used only for the proofreading or general editing of manuscripts, if used at all during the writing process - in which case it would be deemed "AI assisted" writing. If a substantial portion of the text has been so processed, suitable acknowledgment and declaration of this fact should be made in the manuscript.
Any conflicts of interest should be declared in a separate section at the end of the paper. If there are none, then such should also be declared.
If the research and/or writing of the manuscript was funded (or otherwise substantially supported) by an institution, foundation or other entity, such should be noted towards at the end of the paper.
