Author contributions For transparency


Author contributions
For transparency, we encourage authors to submit an author statement file outlining their individual
contributions to the paper using the relevant CRediT roles: Conceptualization; Data curation;
Formal analysis; Funding acquisition; Investigation; Methodology; Project administration; Resources;
Software; Supervision; Validation; Visualization; Roles/Writing - original draft; Writing - review &
editing. Authorship statements should be formatted with the names of authors first and CRediT role(s)
following. More details and an example.
Changes to authorship
Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their
manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any
addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only
before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such
a change, the Editor must receive the following from the corresponding author: 

(a) the reason
for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they
agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors,
this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed.
Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editor consider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of
authors after the manuscript has been accepted. While the Editor considers the request, publication
of the manuscript will be suspended. If the manuscript has already been published in an online issue,
any requests approved by the Editor will result in a corrigendum.
Article transfer service
This journal uses the Elsevier Article Transfer Service to find the best home for your manuscript. This
means that if an editor feels your manuscript is more suitable for an alternative journal, you might
be asked to consider transferring the manuscript to such a journal. The recommendation might be
provided by a Journal Editor, a dedicated Scientific Managing Editor, a tool assisted recommendation,
or a combination. If you agree, your manuscript will be transferred, though you will have the
opportunity to make changes to the manuscript before the submission is complete. Please note that
your manuscript will be independently reviewed by the new journal. More information.
Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to complete a 'Journal Publishing Agreement' (see
more information on this). An e-mail will be sent to the corresponding author confirming receipt of
the manuscript together with a 'Journal Publishing Agreement' form or a link to the online version
of this agreement.
Subscribers may reproduce tables of contents or prepare lists of articles including abstracts for internal
circulation within their institutions. Permission of the Publisher is required for resale or distribution
outside the institution and for all other derivative works, including compilations and translations. If
excerpts from other copyrighted works are included, the author(s) must obtain written permission
from the copyright owners and credit the source(s) in the article. Elsevier has preprinted forms for
use by authors in these cases.
For gold open access articles: Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to complete a
'License Agreement' (more information). Permitted third party reuse of gold open access articles is
determined by the author's choice of user license.

the collection, analysis and interpretation of data; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to

Submission to this journal proceeds totally online. Use the following guidelines to prepare your

you will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of the various files. The system
automatically converts source files to a single Adobe Acrobat PDF version of the article, which is
used in the peer-review process. Please note that even though manuscript source files are converted
to PDF at submission for the review process, these source files are needed for further processing
after acceptance. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for
revision, takes place by e-mail and via the author's homepage,

Please submit the names and institutional e-mail addresses of several potential reviewers.
You should not suggest reviewers who are colleagues, or who have co-authored or collaborated with
you during the last three years. Editors do not invite reviewers who have potential competing interests
with the authors. Further, in order to provide a broad and balanced assessment of the work, and ensure
scientific rigor, please suggest diverse candidate reviewers who are located in different countries/
regions from the author group. Also consider other diversity attributes e.g. gender, race and ethnicity,
career stage, etc. Finally, you should not include existing members of the journal's editorial team,
