Article types accepted
Papers in this category generally describe ethically approved research projects which report full research data and generate new knowledge in the field. Standard Papers typically have a word count of around 5,000 words, though the length of manuscripts should be appropriate to the content and research reported.
Review Articles provide a comprehensive summary of research on a certain topic through summary, analysis, and comparison. A typical maximum word count may be around 7,000 words, though paper length is dependent upon the topic and scope of literature presented.
Case Reports present the details of patient cases that contribute significantly to the existing knowledge on the field. Case Reports typically have a word count of around 3,000 words, though the length of manuscripts should be appropriate to the content and research reported.
Shorter Communications are typically articles less than 3,000 words in length, which present research findings that are less substantial than those reported in Standard Papers, either in scope or content. A small feasibility study may be an example.
