Informed Consent Policy

The Journal’s policy for informed object consent for case reports and similar article follows the publication ethics set out by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and IJRED recommendations.  Written descriptions, photographs and pedigrees that lead to subject identification should be avoided unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the objects or legal guardian has given written informed consent for publication. Identifying details should be omitted unless it is necessary.  However, the object data should never be altered or falsified to attain anonymity.  A statement addressing informed object consent must be included as a part of the manuscript.
