GUIDANCE FOR AUTHORS:
The best way to send in your contributions is by email, as an attached file. Our preferred word-processing format is Microsoft Word, version 6. Manuscripts must be single-spaced, in 12-point font (including the references and legends of tables and figures) on sheets of uniform size (preferably ISO A4) with wide margins. A title of up to 10 words (in uppercase), and the first and last name of the author, department, and organization address should also appear. If there is more than one establishment involved in the work, authors' names should be linked to the appropriate establishment by the use numbers and the symbols *, †, ‡, §, and ¶ in that order. A summary giving a bulleted outline of content should appear for the introduction.
If there are any abbreviations in your article, they should be placed in brackets after the full title on the first occasion they are used.
The main body of the paper should be divided into: (a) introduction; (b) experimental, including materials and methods; (c) results, with appropriate quantification and statistical treatment of data; (d) tables and figures; (e) discussion (f) acknowledgements, including details of financial support; (g) numbered references. It is often an advantage to combine (c), (d) and (e) to gain conciseness and clarity. The discussion section should not recapitulate the results; only discuss their implications. The number of references should not normally exceed 50, and 20–30 references are frequently adequate.
References in the paper must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the text. The list of references at the end of the paper should give all the authors' names and initials unless there are more than 6 authors, in which case 'et al' is used for subsequent names. This is followed by the title, abbreviated according to the "List of Journals Indexed" in Index Medicus, the year of publication, the volume number, and the first and last page numbers. References to books should give the names of any editors, place of publication, publisher and year, in place of the journal information.
