By submitting your manuscript you agree to the following EJBM conditions:
As an author of this manuscript, I certify that only those with key responsibility for the material in the article are listed as authors; others contributing to the work are recognized in the Acknowledgments section of the manuscript. Each author has participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content. Their authorship is based on substantial contributions to 1) conception and design or analysis and interpretation of data as well as 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content. Participation solely in the acquisition of funding or the collection of data does not justify authorship. General supervision of the research group is also not sufficient. Any part of an article critical to its main conclusions must be the responsibility of at least one author.
