  • Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that phone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address. Contact detail must be kept up to date by the corresponding author.

General instructions for main manuscripts:

  - Manuscripts should be typed, doubled-spaced, on A4 paper with 1-inch margins on all sides. Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions). Number all pages, beginning with the title page.

  - Number the figures/tables according to their sequence in the text.

  - Submit each figure/table as a separate file.

  - Figures/tables should include double-spaced legends (maximum length, 60 words) on separate pages.

  - Figures/tables must be included with disk submissions, either as JPGE or TIFF.

  - The table title should explain clearly and concisely the components of the table .Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.

  - Name your figure files with "Fig" and the figure number, e.g., Fig1.eps.

  - Images and photographs must have acceptable quality (at 300 dpi or higher).

  - The first time an abbreviated term is used, spell it out in full and follow with theabbreviation in parentheses – for example: ultrasound (US).

  Original Papers

  Divide your article into clearly defined sections. Each subsection is given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line:

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

  Material and methods

  Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
This section should describe the plan, patients, materials, controls, procedures, inclusion and exclusion criteria, and statistical methods.


  Results should be clear and concise. Refer to all tables/figures in this section. Tables and figures should supplement, not duplicate, the text.

this should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat your findings with those of others. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion.

  Review Articles

  Review articles should be composed of systematic, critical assessments of literature and data sources pertaining to clinical topics, emphasizing factors such as cause, diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, or prevention. They should have structured abstracts with the original article headings. All articles and data sources reviewed should include information about the specific type of study or analysis, population, intervention, exposure, and data tests or outcomes.

  Short communications

  Original research papers can also be published in a brief format. Submitted papers that are of interest but are not acceptable as a full-length original paper are offered by the editor to be published in this section. Also, the authors can primarily submit their papers for consideration of publication in this section

  Case reports

  They should be arranged as follows:Title page, Introduction,Case report, Discussion and References.



  Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references. A brief statement should acknowledge individuals, other than authors, who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.)



  Reference citations in the text should be identified by numbers in brackets (e.g. [5]). Number the references in order of their first appearance in the text (not alphabetically). Once a reference is cited, allsubsequent citations should be to the original number.

  Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. They should be typed, double-spaced, on a separate page. Only references that are mentioned in the text should be listed. Use the Index Medicus style for abbreviations of journal titles. List all authors if there are four or fewer; for five or more authors, list the first three and add "et al." All authors are responsible for the accuracy of their references.
