Limit 5000 words including references, tables, and figures
Case Reports and Perspectives
Limit 3000 words including references, tables, and figures
Original Research should include the following sections: Title Page, Abstract (250 words maximum), Keywords (from five to eight), Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements, References, Tables, Figure Legends, and Figures. Reviews, Lectures, Case Reports, and Perspectives can be written in any logical order. The number of non-text items (Tables and Figures) cannot exceed five. Please note that the Title Page, Abstract, Keywords, Tables and Figures must be able to stand alone.
Acknowledgements should include contributions of specific colleagues, institutions, or agencies that aided the efforts of the authors. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.). In particular, authors should reveal all sources of funding for the work presented in the manuscript and should declare any conflict of interest.
The requirements for writing a cover letter are described in the Essential Files for Submission Section.
Essential Title Page Information
Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.
Author names and affiliations. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the degree, position, full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.
Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.
Abstract and Keywords
A concise and factual abstract is required (250 words maximum). Abstract should be structured as follows: aim of the study, materials and methods, results, and conclusions. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. References should be avoided. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. In Reviews, Lectures, and Perspectives, abstract should be non-structured but reflect all the key points.
Immediately after the abstract, provide from five to eight keywords, using American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, "and", "of"). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
Do not use the word processor's options to hyphenate words.
Times New Roman, size 14, single spaced.
Use italics for emphasis.
Use the automatic page numbering function (lower right corner) to number the pages, including the title page.
Margins 2.5 cm from each side.
Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar.
Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables.
Use the equation editor or MathType for equations.
Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions).
The use of abbreviations should be kept to a minimum. Non-standard abbreviations should be avoided unless they appear at least four times, and defined upon first use in the main text. Consider also giving a list of non-standard abbreviations at the end, immediately before the Acknowledgements.
Equations should be inserted in editable format from the equation editor.
Gene symbols should be italicized; protein products are not italicized.
Chemical compounds and biomolecules should be referred to using systematic nomenclature, preferably using the recommendations by IUPAC.
We encourage the use of Standard International Units in all manuscripts.
Each table should be typed single-spaced on a separate page, and numbered consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Table titles should be informative. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.
Please make sure that artwork files are in an acceptable format (TIFF or JPEG), and with the correct resolution (a minimum of 300 DPI). Vector drawings should embed all used fonts and should be submitted in EPS or PDF. Each figure should be numbered consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. Supply captions separately, not attached to the figure. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.
Please not that unpublished data, submitted manuscripts, or personal communications cannot be either cited within the text or included in the reference list.
Text: Indicate references by number(s) in square brackets in line with the text.
Reference list: Number the references (numbers in square brackets) in the list in the order in which they appear in the text.
Please do not use footnotes!
