I. Originality and Copyright
Please note that simultaneous submissions are not acceptable. Submission of a manuscript is interpreted as a statement of certification that no part of the manuscript is copyrighted by any other publication nor is it under review by any other formal publication. Please see the following important points regarding copyright:
1. Originality of manuscripts. Only ORIGINAL and PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED manuscripts will be accepted for publication. Upon acceptance of your manuscript, you will be required to sign a warranty that your manuscript is original and has not been submitted for publication or published elsewhere. All copyrights, including translation of the published material into other languages, are reserved by the publisher, LESIJ. Upon transfer of the copyright to the publisher, no part of the manuscript may be reproduced in any form without written permission of the publisher.
2. Revised manuscripts. LESIJ will not publish a manuscript that is a “revised” version of a manuscript that you published elsewhere. While your manuscript may certainly be based on the same data and research as another manuscript published by you, the manuscript you submit to LESIJ must be a completely new and original work—in other words, it must NOT have the same wording or formatting as another manuscript previously published by you.
3. Acquiring permission for copyrighted images. It is YOUR responsibility to obtain written permission to include any copyrighted images (whether they be screenshots [e.g., a screenshot of a page from a company’s Web site, a screenshot of a scene from a video game, etc.], figures, tables, graphics, etc.) in your manuscript. The copyright holder MUST agree to and sign LESIJ’s permission form before LESIJ will agree to include the image in your manuscript.  To obtain a copy of this permission form, please contact the journal Editor-in-Chief or LESIJ (mircea.damaschin.lesij@univnt.ro or damaschin.mircea@gmail.com).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since acquiring permission may take a significant amount of time, it is very important that you begin the process as soon as possible.
4. Permission fees. Subsequent to the previous point, if the copyright holder of an image is requiring a one-time permission fee, LESIJ will agree to publish the figure, provided that the author pays the fee.  However, LESIJ will NOT agree to publish any copyrighted image for which a permission fee is required for each subsequent publication of the image.
5. Trademark use. All trademark use within your manuscript MUST be credited to its owner, or written permission to use the name must be granted.
