When reporting studies on human, indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional or regional) and with the WMA Declaration of Helsinki - Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects. When reporting experiments on animals, indicate whether the institution’s or a national research council’s guide for or any national law on the care and use of laboratory animals were followed. Evidence of approval by a local Ethics Committee (for both human as well as animal studies) must be supplied by the authors with the respective institutional (national) review committee (IRC) number. Animal experimental procedures should be as humane as possible and the details of anesthetics and analgesics used should be clearly stated. The ethical standards of experiments must be in accordance with the guidelines provided by the Committee for the Purpose of Control And Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) for animal and International Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for human. The journal will not consider any paper, which is ethically unacceptable. A statement on ethics committee permission and ethical practices must be included in all research articles under the ‘METHODS’ section with the respective IRC member.
