Author Guidelines

How do I submit my manuscript?

The authors are recommended to read the Aims and Scope of the journal before submitting the manuscripts.

Please register yourself online before submitting your manuscript. Once registration is finished, you can sign in and start the submission, as well as watch the rapid processing. Submissions by anyone other than one of the authors will not be accepted.

Your submission implies that the work is not published before in the fields and it is not being under consideration for publication anywhere else. The submission also implies the acknowledgment from all authors.

You are responsible to disclose any potential conflict of interests, not limited to financial relationship with individuals or organizations. If there is no conflict of interests in the manuscript, NO CONFLICT OF INTERESTS should be acknowledged at the end of the paper.

Authorship

It is required to include full author names and affiliations, corresponding authors, phone numbers with country and area code, email addresses and a complete permanent postal address.

Any involved financial support and grant should be disclosed with detailed information.

 

Length of the manuscript

Although it is most important to plainly and concisely clarify scientific questions, the word count in the manuscript is asked to be reasonable. The restriction is quite loose. The text body is expected to contain 2,000 to 20,000 words, in which abstracts, tables, figures and references are not included. Usually abstracts should not exceed 300 words.

Cover letter

A cover letter discloses the achievement of the manuscript, as well as the authors' agreement for publication with supporting documents and information.

Language

English is the only accepted language of submissions, though it is deeply appreciated that every language in the world is beautiful and illuminating. The manuscript is required to adopt the font of 12 points of Times New Roman.

The title should be in 16 point of Times New Roman font with the first letter in each word in capital. The title is asked to be kept in less than two lines.

The manuscript should be submitted in Openoffice, PDF, MS-Word or RTF format.

Figures

It's the authors' responsibility to ensure proper rights, licenses or permissions to use the figures. Figures should be provided in EPS or JPEG format. The standard size of image is 81mm for single column and 180mm for double column.

References

National Library of Medicine (NLM) citation style is recommended for authors to follow. Other format styles may delay the processing.
