Author Guidelines

Ethics of human and animal experimentation: Manuscripts describing any experimental work with humans should include a statement that the Ethical Committee of the institution in which the work was done has approved it, and that the subjects gave informed consent to the work. Experiments with animals should be done in accordance with the legal requirements of the relevant local or national authority.

Funding and Conflict of interest: All authors are requested to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest including any financial, personal or other relationship with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence their work. A separate page should cover this proclamation and any further details can be mentioned in the cover letter.

 Submission declaration and verification: Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the copyright-holder.

 Contributors: All authors must have significantly participated in the research and/or article preparation. The statement that all authors have approved the final article should be included in the disclosure.

Cover Letter and Signatures: The Manuscript must be accompanied by a cover letter (one page) to the Editor, containing the title and author(s) name and a summary of why your paper is a valuable addition to the scientific literature. In addition, lists are recommended (at least 4) or opposed reviewers. Your cover letter should not include requests to reduce or waive publication fees. When your manuscript is accepted, you will have the opportunity to include your requests at that time.
