Number pages consecutively, beginning with the title page.
The manuscript should contain NO automatic formatting (except page numbers in the bottom right corner of each page).
An Abstract of 200-250 words should be included with each article, beginning on a separate page.
Abstracts for research manuscripts may be prepared in a structured format, using aim, methods, results, and conclusions.
Text should begin on a separate page and follow these word-count parameters: 2700-3000 for research articles and 4000 for review articles.
Text for original research and short communication type articles should contain: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion and if necessary Conclusion and Acknowledments. The number of figures and tables should be in proportion to the amount of text. All research manuscripts must include (in both abstract and methods section) the year in which the data were collected and when the study/analysis was conducted.
It should be added line numbers to document. Please see to learn to how to add line numbers to word documents “Adding Line Numbers to Word Documents” on www.scopemed.org.
The Journal also accepts and publishes Brief Reports based on smaller studies, but still of interest to our readers. Brief Reports should contain all the same sections as a full research paper, but be limited to 1200 words, with no more than 1-2 short tables or figures.
Acknowledgments and any necessary disclaimers should begin on a separate page, numbered in sequence following the text but before references. List sources of support in the form of grants, equipment , or drugs. Acknowledge only people who have made substantive contributions to the study.
