Submission of an article requires the assurance that it is an original work which has not been published previously and is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere. If the manuscript submitted is published, in press, or currently being reviewed or considered for publication elsewhere, you should withdraw it from consideration by VELES. If the submitted study is part of a larger study or if you have used the same data in whole or in part in other papers, both already published or under review, you should submit a cover letter stating where the paper is published/under review and describing clearly and in as much detail as possible where the similarities and differences are and how the current submission to VELES makes a different and distinct contribution to the field.
