On behalf of the authors of the above paper, we pledge that we have composed the paper corresponding to the Korea Marine Engineering Associationโ€™s research ethics regulations, enforcement rules and so on; in particular, we pledge the following.

  1. I have not committed forgery, including the creation of non-existent data or research results and the recording or reporting of such.
  2. I have not manipulated research-related materials, equipment, and processes, nor modified or excluded research data or results, or falsified data such that they do not conform to the truth.
  3. I have not plagiarized material (either intentionally or otherwise), either by presenting othersโ€™ ideas or the whole or part of a literary work as my research results or claims without appropriate citation (including cases where a different language is used).
  4. The order of the list of co-authors has been accurately marked and reflects the extent to which each co-author contributed directly or indirectly to the research, regardless of their relative status. In other words, there are no unethical issues in the context of the list of co-authors.
  5. There has been no attempt to publish or issue the whole or part of a paper that has already been issued or published (including papers waiting to be published or reviewed) in the same or different language without exact citations and quotations. In the case that the paper is suspected of duplicate or double publishing, I have obtained the consent of the copyright holder or provided information on previous publications to the editorial board or research ethics committee of the academic journals in which I wish to publish, and confirmed whether they can be classified as duplicate or double publishing.
  6. I will accept comments from the reviewers presented in the course of the paperโ€™s review and try to reflect them in the paper as far as possible. However, if I do not agree with the comments from the reviewers, I will present evidence and reasons for this to the editorial committee.
