Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The authors should note submission of their manuscript implies that the submission has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere except as a brief abstract in the proceedings book, poster presentation or oral presentation in a scientific meeting (in which case, the authors must submit an explanation in the Comments to the Editor part during the submission).
- The submission file should be in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references should be provided.
- The text should be double-spaced; in 12-point Times New Roman or Calibri fonts. All illustrations, figures, and tables should be cited in the text. Tables and figure legends should be placed on a separate page after the references. All figures should be submitted as separate files.
- The text should be in compliance with all the requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- Ethical committee approval (Ethical committee name, date and number) should be stated in the methods section and presented as an additional file during the submission. The submission of such studies indicate that the study is in compliance with the ethical principles for Medical Research mentioned in the Declaration of Helsinki.
- A cover letter or any other comments should be added in the "Comments to the Editor" section during the submission. The authors may suggest reviewers that are knowledgeable on the subject matter in the cover letter; in which case, the name, e-mail and affiliation information of the researcher proposed should also be provided.
Reviews prepared by authors who have extensive knowledge on a particular field and whose scientific background has been translated into a high volume of publications with a high citation potential are welcomed. These authors may even be invited by the journal. Reviews should describe, discuss, and evaluate the current level of knowledge of a topic in clinical practice and should guide future studies. The subheadings of the review articles should be planned by the authors.
This is the most important type of article since it provides new information based on original research. The main text of original articles should be structured with Introduction, Material and Method, Results, and Discussion subheadings.
Statistical analysis to support conclusions is usually necessary. Statistical analyses must be conducted in accordance with international statistical reporting standards (Altman DG, Gore SM, Gardner MJ, Pocock SJ. Statistical guidelines for contributors to medical journals. Br Med J 1983: 7; 1489-93). Information on statistical analyses should be provided with a separate subheading under the Materials and Methods section and the statistical software that was used during the process must be specified.
Units should be prepared in accordance with the International System of Units (SI).
Intriguing and informative case reports including very rare conditions even for other authors or those representing challenges in the diagnosis and treatment or overlooked conditions in practice or those offering new therapies, involving information that are not even present in the textbooks can be published in the journal. Such case reports are published in limited numbers. Case report contains the subheadings of Introduction, Case Report and Discussion.
Letter to the Editor
This type of manuscript discusses important parts, overlooked aspects, or lacking parts of a previously published article. Articles on subjects within the scope of the journal that might attract the readers’ attention, particularly educative cases, may also be submitted in the form of a “Letter to the Editor.” Readers can also present their comments on the published manuscripts in the form of a “Letter to the Editor.” Abstract, Keywords, and Tables, Figures, Images, and other media should not be included. The text should be unstructured. The manuscript that is being commented on must be properly cited within this manuscript.
