This change obliges the information about the permission (board name, date and issue number) included in the Ethics Committee Approval to be included in the method section of the article and also on the last page of the article. Even if the process of the article that does not meet this criterion is completed, it may not be possible to publish it, as it will negatively affect the process of scanning our journal in TR Index

The following statements should be added to the last page by the responsible author.
