Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF or PDF document file format.
  • Prepare your manuscript for the single-blind peer review.
    The manuscript can be submitted either as Word or PDF format. The text is typewritten, double-spaced throughout; pages are in A4 format and numbered, lines should be left numbered in continuum (10-digit numeric system); the text uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed at the end, rather than within the text.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Guidelines for Authors.
  • The submission form must contain the full names of ALL authors, using the button "ADD CONTRIBUTORS" with capital letters only for the first letter of authors’ names.
    Be sure to add ALL the affiliations of ALL the Authors of the article because otherwise they they will not appear online. The author names and affiliations inserted in the online submission system will be those that will be published in PubMed, Scopus, WoS, etc. The Editorial staff is therefore not responsible for eventual inaccuracies or mistakes in the affiliations inserted during the submission process.
  • I understand that this journal charges an Article Processing Fee for publication. I confirm that I will pay the amount due whether my manuscript will be accepted for publication.
  • Mandatory: Authors are to suggest potential reviewers (name, affiliation and e-mail) for their manuscript and/or opposite reviewers. They must be indicated in the field "Comments for the Editor".
    Providing a list of relevant people who would be able to make objective and constructive criticism will quicken the review process.
  • I understand that Articles reporting studies in which the investigation was not conducted using a histochemical approach and in which histochemistry and microscopy did not play a significant analytical or informational role will not be considered.
