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. The journal will accept case reports that have a very high potential to advance the field or provide significant information for researchers and practitioners in the field.
Reviews are comprehensive analyses of specific topics. The journal prefers systematic reviews, scoping reviews and well written narrative reviews on topics of special interest or novelty in the field. Invited Review is by invitation from the Editor-in-Chief.
Special Articles provide novel interpretation or synthesis of information in an area of general interest to readers of the journal. Special Articles include practice guidelines, consensus statements and position papers.
Editorials are solicited from editorial board members, experts and leaders in the field to educate and stimulate thought and discussion. Editorials do not have an abstract.
Authors wishing to submit other types of manuscript, such as Letters to the Editor, should consult the Editorial Committee before submission for further instructions.
