PROTECTION OF HUMAN SUBJECT AND ANIMAL IN RESEARCH POLICY
When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki. If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the said declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study.
When reporting experiments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed. Further guidance on animal research ethics is available from the International Association of Veterinary Editors’ Consensus Author Guidelines on Animal Ethics and Welfare.
INFORMED CONSENT POLICY
Patients have a right to privacy that should not be violated without informed consent. Identifying information, including names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, or pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Authors should disclose to these patients whether any potential identifiable material might be available via internet as well as in print after publication. Nonessential identifying details should be omitted.
Journal of Indonesian Dental Association decides that patient confidentiality is better guarded by having the authors archive the consent, and instead providing us with a written statement in the manuscript attesting that they have received and archived written patient consent. When informed consent has been obtained, it should be indicated later in the published article.
