Instructions for authors


General information

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice. In case of describing any medical research involving human subjects, all the authors are to abide by the provisions of the Declaration of Helsinki. It is expected that all the studies involving people are conducted in accordance with those regulations. As far as the research and experiments on animals are concerned, it is expected that the researchers observe the regulations and guidelines of the Interdisciplinary principles and guidelines for the use of animals in research, testing and education 1 issued by the Animal Research Committee of the New York Academy of Sciences. All the experiments and studies performed on people and animals need to be approved by a relevant ethical committee. A statement of compliance with these rules should be included in the manuscript.

The Journal is run according to the principles of COPE (The Committee on Publication Ethics) that are set forth in the COPE Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Editors.

See www.elsevier.com/publishingethics and www.elsevier.com/ethicalguidelines.

The reviewing procedure:

At least two independent reviewers from out of the scientific unit affiliated with the author are summoned in order to evaluate each paper.

In the case of a foreign language publication, at least one of the reviewers is affiliated with a foreign institution in a country other than the one that the author comes from.

Author or authors of the publication and the reviewers do not know who each other is (the so-called “double-blind review process”)

The review is in written form and it includes an unambiguous recommendation of the reviewer either to publish or reject it.

The criteria of acceptance or rejection as well as the review form, if applicable, are publicised on the journal webpage or in each issue of the journal.

Text
The manuscript text should comprise the following: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, References (and eventual Acknowledgements).

Introductionshould state the purpose of the article and summarize the rationale for the study.

Materials and Methods reasons for using them, and evaluation of their limitations should clearly describe the methods used in the investigation. The methods, apparatus (the manufacturer's name and address should be included), and procedures should be given in sufficient detail to allow other workers to reproduce the results. References to established methods and brief descriptions for methods should be given. Whereas new or substantially modified methods should be presented in full detail, including

Statistical methods should be presented with enough detail to enable a knowledgeable reader with access to the original data to verify the reported results.

Results should concisely and reasonably summarize the findings. Restrict tables and figureures to the minimum. Do not duplicate data in graphs and tables. The results should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables and illustrations. Do not repeat in the text all the data from the tables or graphs. Only important observations must be emphasized. The results should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables and illustrations.

Discussion should deal only with new and/or important aspects of the study. Do not repeat in detail data or other material from the Back

ground or the Results section. Include in the Discussion the implications of the findings and their limitations, including implications for future research. The discussion should confront the results of other investigations especially those quoted in the text.

Conclusions should be linked with the goals of the study. State new hypotheses when warranted. Include recommendations when appropriate. Unqualified statements and conclusions not completely supported by the obtained data should be avoided.

Acknowledgements. List all contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship, such as technical assistants, writing assistants or head of department who provided only general support. Financial and other material support should be disclosed and acknowledged.

Unpublished observations, abstracts or review papers and personal communications can not be used as references.
