  1. substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data
  2. drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content
  3. final approval of the version to be published
  4. agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work
All persons designated as authors should qualify for authorship, and all those who qualify should be listed."
