Manuscript Preparation
Front part
These sections should appear in all manuscript types:
  • Title: The title of your manuscript should be concise, specific and relevant. It should identify if the study reports (human or animal) trial data, or is a systematic review, meta-analysis or replication study. When gene or protein names are included, the abbreviated name rather than full name should be used.
  • Author List and Affiliations: Authors' full first and last names must be provided. The initials of any middle names can be added. For affiliation: complete address information including city, zip code, state/province, and country. At least one author should be designated as corresponding author, and his or her email address and other details should be included at the end of the affiliation section. Please read the criteria to qualify for authorship.
  • Abstract: The abstract should be a total of about 250 words maximum. The abstract should be a single paragraph and should follow the style of structured abstracts, but without headings: 1) Background: Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the study; 2) Methods: Describe briefly the main methods or treatments applied. Include any relevant preregistration numbers, and species and strains of any animals used. 3) Results: Summarize the article's main findings; and 4) Conclusion: Indicate the main conclusions or interpretations. The abstract should be an objective representation of the article: it must not contain results which are not presented and substantiated in the main text and should not exaggerate the main conclusions.
  • Keywords: Three to ten pertinent keywords need to be added after the abstract. We recommend that the keywords are specific to the article, yet reasonably common within the subject discipline.

Articles

Original research articles are considered all original research manuscripts provided that the work reports scientifically sound experiments and provides a substantial amount of new information. Articles should have a main text of around 2000 words at a minimum and should have more than 20 references. The quality and impact of the study will be considered during peer review.

Case reports

Case reports present detailed information on the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment (including all types of interventions), and outcomes of an individual patient. Case reports usually describe new or uncommon conditions that serve to enhance medical care or highlight diagnostic approaches.

Short communication

Short Communications of preliminary, but significant, results will be considered. Short Communication is suitable for recording the results of complete small investigations or giving details of new models, innovative methods, or techniques. The style of the main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications are 2 to 4 printed pages (about 6 to 12 manuscript pages) in length.

Reviews

Submissions of reviews and perspectives covering topics of current interest are welcome and encouraged. Review articles should be comprehensive and submitted by authors who are in the field. Reviews should be concise and no longer than 4-6 printed pages (about 12 to 18 manuscript pages).
