- All authors listed in the submitted manuscript have made a significant scientific contribution to the research submitted and agreed to be included in the author list of the manuscript.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word or PDF document file format.
