The journal mainly publishes Original Articles, Case Reports, and Reviews.
Original Articles are full descriptions of original works that describe experiments, studies, and other investigations. Manuscripts can focus on local, regional, or global scales, but must be placed into a context which allows readers from any location to be able to grasp the significance of the work.
Case Reports are descriptions of both novel and clinically significant cases or case series which may progress the field or may be informative for researchers and practitioners within the field.
Reviews should provide the reader with a general understanding of the topic with an estimated reading time of about 1 hour. The article should be richly referenced. The author(s) should aim to include original references (avoid referring to other review articles). Normally, review articles are authored by individuals who have themselves made a significant contribution to the original literature on the topic under review and are acknowledged authorities in the field. Therefore, a presubmission enquiry is required prior to submission. Please email an author list, abstract, outline and key references to the Editorial Office.
Authors wishing to submit other types of manuscript, such as Letters to the Editor, should consult the Editorial Committee before submission for further instructions.
