Submitted manuscripts should be the original works of the author(s). Annali di Stomatologia will follow COPE guideline in suspected cases of plagiarism.

Duplicate submissions

Duplicate submission is a situation whereby an author submits the same or similar manuscripts to two different journals at the same time either within Annali di Stomatologia or any other publisher. This includes the submission of manuscripts derived from the same data in such a manner that there are no substantial differences in the manuscripts. Duplicate submission also includes the submission of the same/similar manuscript in different languages to different journals.
