Research data

The editorial board does not collect research data and the presentation of the research data management plan does not constitute a requirement that must be met in order for a paper to be published. By research data, the editorial board means materials of factual nature recorded in the form of numbers, text, graphics or sound, generally considered by the scientific community to be necessary for the evaluation of the results of scientific research. However, in certain circumstances authors may be asked to provide research data, also after the publication of their paper.
