Authors are required to make clear the nature of their contribution to their manuscript.
To be listed as an author at byline, an individual has to meet all three categories
(1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data;
(2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and
(3) final approval of the version to be published. Individuals who have contributed substantially to some but not all of the three categories, or in other areas, should be listed in Acknowledgments.
We also recommend limiting the number of authors to not more than 9 in number.
The Journal of the Korean Academy of Pediatric Dentistry does not allow dual or shared authorship. Please resolve this issue before the manuscript is submitted.
The Journal of the Korean Academy of Pediatric Dentistry does not allow adding authors or changing the first or the corresponding authors, once its decision of Revision or Accept is made. If any author wishes to be removed from the byline, he or she should submit a letter signed by the author, as well as all other authors, indicating his or her wish to be deleted from the list of authors.
Any change in the name order in the byline requires a letter signed by all authors indicting agreement with the same.
All potential conflicts of interest including any research funding, other financial support, and material support for this work, if any exists, need to be clearly identified in the unblinded full title page.
