Journal Instructions

All manuscripts must contain the essential elements needed and must be divided into clearly defined sections, for example Cover letter, Title, Author names with corresponding author marked, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Figures and Tables with Captions, Acknowledgement, Conflicts of interest. If the article includes any Supplementary material, this should be included for peer review purposes.

Cover letter: The articles must always be accompanied by a cover letter, stating the type of the article and that the article submitted is neither published nor is under consideration by any other journal. It should also have a statement of the main point of the article. Names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses of five potential referees can be mentioned.

Main submission:

  1. The title of the article must be with relation to the content and should not be similar to any other published article.

  2. All the contributing author names must be mentioned with their affiliations and email addresses. The corresponding authors telephone number is requested in case of any quick correspondence required in accordance with the submission.

    1. Case Report In general, all case reports include the following components: an abstract, an introduction, a case, and a discussion. Some journals might require literature review.

      Abstract: The abstracts of case studies are usually very short, preferably not more than 150 words.

      Introduction: Introduction gives a brief overview of the problem that the case addresses, citing relevant literature where necessary. The introduction generally ends with a single sentence describing the patient and the basic condition that he or she is suffering from.

      Keywords: The highlights of the article and be from 4-10 in number.

      Case: This section provides the details of the case in the following order:

      • Patient description
      • Case history
      • Physical examination results
      • Results of pathological tests and other investigations
      • Treatment plan
      • Expected outcome of the treatment plan
      • Actual outcome.

      Discussion: Discussion is the most important part of the case report; the part that will convince the journal that the case is publication worthy. This section should start by expanding on what has been said in the introduction, focusing on why the case is noteworthy and the problem that it addresses. Finally, the case report should be connected to the existing literature, mentioning the message that the case conveys. The author should explain whether this corroborates with or detracts from current beliefs about the problem and how this evidence can add value to future clinical practice.

      Conclusion (Optional): A case report ends with a conclusion or with summary points. This section should briefly give readers the key points covered in the case report. Here, the author can give suggestions and recommendations to clinicians, teachers, or researchers.

      Patient consent (If any): Informed consent in an ethical requirement for most studies involving humans, so before you start writing your case report, take a written consent from the patient as all journals require that you provide it at the time of manuscript submission. Patient anonymity is also an important requirement. Remember not to disclose any information that might reveal the identity of the patient. You need to be particularly careful with pictures, and ensure that pictures of the affected area do not reveal the identity of the patient.
