Author Guidelines

LaTeX Template
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This guideline is an extract from EASE Guidelines for Authors

Manuscripts should be COMPLETE:

  • Title: should be unambiguous, understandable to specialists in other fields, and reflect the content of the article.
  • List of authors are all people who contributed substantially to study planning, data collection or interpretation of results and wrote or critically revised the manuscript and approved its final version and agree to be accountable for all aspects of the work. Names of authors must be supplemented with their affiliations and email addresses. All authors are encouraged to sign up for an ORCiD id (http://www.orcid.org).
  • Abstract: briefly explain why you conducted the study (BACKGROUND), what question(s) you aimed to answer (OBJECTIVES), how you performed the study (METHODS), what you found (RESULTS: major data, relationships), and your interpretation and main consequences of your findings (CONCLUSIONS). You must use keywords within the abstract, to facilitate on-line searching for your article by those who may be interested in your results.
  • List of keywords: include all relevant scientific terms or only additional keywords that are absent from the title.
  • Introduction: explain why the study was needed and specify your research objectives or the question(s) you aimed to answer. Start from more general issues and gradually focus on your research question(s).
  • Methods: describe in detail how the study was carried out (eg study area, data collection, criteria, origin of analysed material, sample size, number of measurements, age and sex of participants or tissue/cell donors, equipment, data analysis, statistical tests, and software used). All factors that could have affected the results need to be considered.
  • Results: present the new results of your study. All tables and figures must be mentioned in the main body of the article, and numbered in the order in which they appear in the text. Make sure that the statistical analysis is appropriate. Do not fabricate or distort any data, and do not exclude any important data; similarly, do not manipulate images to make a false impression on readers.
  • Discussion: this section is not the place to present new results, including statistical results. Answer your research questions (stated at the end of the Introduction) and compare your main results with published data, as objectively as possible. Discuss their limitations and highlight your main findings.
  • Acknowledgements: mention all people who contributed substantially to the study but cannot be regarded as co-authors, and acknowledge all sources of funding.
  • References: make sure that you have provided sources for all information extracted from other publications. In the list of references, include all data necessary to find them in a library or in the Internet.

Write CONCISELY to save the time of referees and readers.
  • Do not include information that is not relevant to your research question(s) stated in the Introduction.
  • Do not copy parts of your previous publications and do not submit the same manuscript to more than one journal at a time.
  • Information given in one section preferably should not be repeated in other sections. Obvious exceptions include the abstract, the figure legends, and the concluding paragraph.
  • Consider whether all tables and figures are necessary. Data presented in tables should not be repeated in figures (or vice versa). Long lists of data should not be repeated in the text.
  • Captions to tables and figures must be informative but not very long. If similar data are presented in several tables or several figures, then the format of their captions should also be similar.
  • If a long scientific term is frequently repeated, define its abbreviation at first use in the main body of the article, and later apply it consistently.


Write CLEARLY to facilitate understanding – make the text readable.
Scientific content

  • Clearly distinguish your original data and ideas from those of other people and from your earlier publications – provide citations whenever relevant.
  • Make sure that you are using proper English scientific terms, preferably on the basis of texts written by native English speakers.
  • Define every uncommon or ambiguous scientific term at first use.
  • Avoid unclear statements.

Text structure

  • Sentences generally should not be very long. Their structure should be relatively simple. Do not overuse passive constructions. When translating, modify sentence structure if necessary to convey the message correctly or more clearly.
  • The text should be cohesive, logically organised, and thus easy to follow.
  • Each paragraph preferably should start with a topic sentence, and the next sentences fully develop the topic.
  • Make figures and tables easily understandable without reference to the main body of the article. Omit data that are not informative. Apply abbreviations only if necessary for consistency or if there is not enough room for whole words. In captions or footnotes, define all abbreviations and symbols that are not obvious (eg error bars may denote standard deviation, standard error or confidence intervals).

Language matters

  • Wherever scientific terms are not necessary, preferably use commonly known words.
  • Define abbreviations when they first appear in the main body of the article. Do not abbreviate terms that are used only rarely in your manuscript. Avoid abbreviations in the abstract.
  • In general, use the past tense when describing how you performed your study and what you found or what other researchers did. Preferably use the present tense in general statements and interpretations
  • Read the text aloud to check punctuation. All intonation breaks necessary for proper understanding should be denoted with commas or other punctuation marks.
  • Be consistent in spelling. Follow American rules for spelling and date notation set it in your grammar checker.
  • Ask a thoughtful colleague to read the whole text, to see if there are any ambiguous fragments.
