Authorship Rules and Authors' Contribution 
Who is an Author? Authorship regulations in Journal of Research in Health and Medical Sciences:
Our core practice about authorship rules is originated from the ICMJE which defines the Role of Authors and Contributors. Based on ICMJE, we recommend that authorship criteria must be matched with the below conditions:

Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work, or the acquisition, analysis or interpretation of data.
Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content.
Final approval of the version published.
Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.
In addition to being accountable for the parts of the work he or she has done, an author should be able to identify which co-authors are responsible for specific other parts of the work. Also, the authors should have confidence in the integrity of the contributions of their co-authors. All those designated as authors should meet all four criteria for authorship, and all who meet the four criteria should be identified as authors. Those who do not meet all four criteria should be listed in an Acknowledgements section. Participation solely in the acquisition of funding, the gathering of data, technical help, writing assistance, and general supervision of the research group does not warrant authorship. Financial and material support should also be acknowledged. Please guarantee that anyone stated in the Acknowledgements section has granted its clearance for permission to be listed.

How to write an "Authors' Contribution"?
An authorship statement is required for every manuscript submitted and should state who has contributed what to the planning, conduct, and reporting of the work described in the article.

Please clarify and write who was responsible for:

Study concept and design:
Acquisition of data:
Analysis and interpretation of data:
Drafting of the manuscript:
Critical revision of the manuscript for important intellectual content:
Statistical analysis:
Administrative, technical, and material support:
Study supervision:
Each author's name must be written only by the first letter of the given name and surname. To ensure that article referees or peer reviewers do not know your identity (as author[s] of the manuscript being reviewed), submitted files (i.e., Full Manuscript File; Reply to Reviewers, Appendices, Figures, Abstract) that reviewers can see, should not contain authors' names or affiliations.

Example 1 in Submission Step:
Author Contributions: Study concept and design: F. M., and H. E.; analysis and interpretation of data: F. M., and S. B.; drafting of the manuscript: F. M.; critical revision of the manuscript for important intellectual content: F. M., H. E., and S. B.; statistical analysis: H. E..

Example 2 in Submission Step:
Y. K. L. developed the original idea and the protocol, abstracted and analyzed data, wrote the manuscript, and is a guarantor. D. P. and S. D. contributed to the development of the protocol, abstracted data, and prepared the manuscript.
