Abstract

The process of publishing scientific research can be hampered by potential pitfalls for journals and researchers alike; the definition and determination of authorship, legal documentation, data accuracy, and disclosure of financial conflicts of interest are all examples. In the current article, the authors discuss the challenges related to scientific medical writing and provide updated recommendations for both the prevention and management of these issues.
