  2. After acceptance, authors, co-authors, or contributors cannot be included or removed for that particular submission.
  3. In the accepted manuscript, the sequence of authors, co-authors, and contributors should be the same as provided in Metadata during initial submission.
  4. The sequence of participants can be rearranged, and information can be modified at any time by providing valid reasons.
  5. All the contributors and sponsors should appear in the accepted manuscript with proper acknowledgements.
  6. In the initial (first) submission, the manuscript must not contain any information about Authors, Co-authors, contributors, sponsors, institutions, or support for the double-blind review process.
