    Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery Resident Best Paper Award
    The award recognises quality and excellence for early career authors in veterinary science who submit papers to be published in Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery. Authors who are a Resident in a recognised residency programme (e.g. ACVIM, ECVIM, ANZCVS) at the time of submission will be eligible for consideration for the award, subject to the paper being accepted for publication. Note that eligibility is contingent on Resident status of the author at the time of submission, rather than at the time of publication. Accepted papers will be considered for the award year in which they are published. Prospective studies will be given preference but relevant retrospective studies will also be considered. Case series and case reports are not eligible, however. Details about this award for interested residents and resident supervisors can be found at http://award.jfms.com.

    3. Authorship

    Papers should only be submitted for consideration once the authorisation of all contributing authors has been gathered. Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work contributed to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors.
    The list of authors should include all those who can legitimately claim authorship. This is all those who:

    1. have made a substantial contribution to the concept and design, acquisition of data or analysis and interpretation of data
    2. drafted the article or revised it critically for important intellectual content
    3. approved the version to be published.

    Authors should meet the conditions of all of the points above. Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content.

    When a large, multicentre group has conducted the work, the group should identify the individuals who accept direct responsibility for the manuscript. These individuals should fully meet the criteria for authorship.
    Acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of the research group alone does not constitute authorship, although all contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the Acknowledgements section.
    Please refer to the ICMJE Authorship guidelines at http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/browse/roles-and-responsibilities/d...

    4. Ethical guidelines                                                

    Circumstances relating to animal experimentation must meet the International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals as issued by the Council for the International Organizations of Medical Sciences. They are obtainable from: Executive Secretary C.I.O.M.S., c/o WHO, Via Appia, CH-1211 Geneva 27, Switzerland, or at the following URL:http://www.cioms.ch/publications/guidelines/1985_texts_of_guidelines.htm

    The Editors reserve the right to reject papers on ethical grounds when, in their opinion, the severity of experimental procedures is not justified by the scientific value or originality of the information being sought by the author(s). The Editors would not normally support publication of any experiments resulting in euthanasia.

    The Editors require that authors adequately discuss the use of analgesia where appropriate for the welfare of the cats involved in the study or case report/series.

    6. Journal contributor’s publishing agreement    

    Before publication, SAGE requires the author, as the rights holder, to sign a Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement. For more information please visit our Frequently Asked Questions on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway.

    Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery and SAGE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of articles published in the journal. Equally, we seek to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked using duplication-checking software. Where an article is found to have plagiarised other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article (removing it from the journal); taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author’s institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; banning the author from publication in the journal or all SAGE journals, or appropriate legal action.

    6.1 SAGE Choice
    If you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to non-subscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. ‘For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self author archiving deposits (green open access), visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.

    7. Acknowledgements                                                          
    Any Acknowledgements should appear at the end of your article prior to your Funding and Conflict of Interest statements and the References.

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in the ‘Acknowledgements’ section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, writing assistance, or a department chair who provided only general support. Authors should disclose whether they had any writing assistance and identify the entity that paid for this assistance.

    8.  Funding statement 

    To comply with the guidance for Research Funders, Authors and Publishers issued by the Research Information Network (RIN), Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery additionally requires all Authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate heading. Please visit Funding Acknowledgement on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway for funding acknowledgement guidelines. In the case of no funding, the following statement will be printed in your article: ‘This research received no grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial or not-for-profit sectors.’

    Back to top

    9. Conflict of interest statement     

    Within your Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement you will be required to make a certification with respect to a declaration of conflicting interests. It is the policy of Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery to require a declaration of conflicting interests from all authors enabling a statement to be carried within the paginated pages of all published articles.

    Please include any declaration at the end of your manuscript after the Funding statement and prior to the References, under a heading ‘Conflict of interest’. If no declaration is made the following will be printed under this heading in your article: ‘The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict of interest’. 

    When making a declaration the disclosure information must be specific and include any financial relationship that all authors of the article have with any sponsoring organization and the for-profit interests the organisation represents, and with any for-profit product discussed or implied in the text of the article.

    Any commercial or financial involvements that might represent an appearance of a conflict of interest need to be additionally disclosed in the covering letter accompanying your article to assist the Editor in evaluating whether sufficient disclosure has been made within the Conflict of interest statement provided in the article.
