All text should be written in the third person and double-spaced flush left; avoid using tabs. Assemble sections in the following order: title page, abstract, text, acknowledgments, references, tables, list of titles for all figures (typed on 1 page), and figures. Number pages consecutively, beginning with the title page.
The manuscript should contain NO automatic formatting (except page numbers in the bottom right corner of each page).
An Abstract of 200-250 words should be included with each article, beginning on a separate page.
Abstracts for research manuscripts may be prepared in a structured format, using aim, methods, results, and conclusions.
Text should begin on a separate page and follow these word-count parameters: 2700-3000 for research articles and 4000 for review articles.
Text for original research and short communication type articles should contain: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion and if necessary Conclusion and Acknowledments. The number of figures and tables should be in proportion to the amount of text. All research manuscripts must include (in both abstract and methods section) the year in which the data were collected and when the study/analysis was conducted.
It should be added line numbers to document. Please see to learn to how to add line numbers to word documents “Adding Line Numbers to Word Documents” on www.scopemed.org.
The Journal also accepts and publishes Brief Reports based on smaller studies, but still of interest to our readers. Brief Reports should contain all the same sections as a full research paper, but be limited to 1200 words, with no more than 1-2 short tables or figures.
Acknowledgments and any necessary disclaimers should begin on a separate page, numbered in sequence following the text but before references. List sources of support in the form of grants, equipment , or drugs. Acknowledge only people who have made substantive contributions to the study.
References follow the style of Index Medicus and should be identified by number in the order in which they are mentioned in the text; references that apply only to tables and figures should be numbered in sequence where the text first refers to the table or figure. Titles of journals must be abbreviated according to Index Medicus style, which can be found athttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=journals.
References to personal communications should be noted in the text, not in the reference list, as: (first initial, last name, affiliation, ‘personal communication,’ date).
References to software should also be noted in the text as: name of software (company, city/state, year of release).
Include among the references manuscripts accepted but not yet published; designate the journal followed by ‘In press.’ Information from manuscripts submitted but not accepted should be cited in the text as unpublished observations (in parentheses). All reference numbers in the text must be entered in ordered that they first used in squared parentheses.
