Letter to Editor

  • Letters to the Editor are considered for publication (subject to editing and abridgment) provided they do not contain material that has been submitted or published elsewhere.
  • Letters in reference to a Journal article must be received within three weeks after publication of the article.
  • A letter can be signed by no more than three authors.
  • Letters not related to a Journal article must not exceed 500 words (excluding references).
  • A letter can have no more than five references and one figure or table.
  • You will be asked to include your full address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address. Financial associations or other possible conflicts of interest must be disclosed.
  • You will receive an e-mailed acknowledgment of your submission.


All acknowledgements including financial support should be mentioned under the heading "acknowledgements" and not as footnotes on the first page or in the text.


Authors are responsible for the accuracy of their references. In manuscript, please number the cited references in chronological order and superscript them at the end of sentence. All references cited in the text (including those included in figure legends and tables) should be listed References.
Start the References on a separate page, and arrange citations in chronological order so that they will be in sequence with references cited in the text. List all authors when there are three or fewer; when there are four or more, list the first three, followed by "et al.", title of the article, journal name (in italics - use PubMed abbreviations), year of publication (followed by a semicolon), volume number (followed by a colon) and pages (first - last page numbers). Reference to electronic material should include author name(s), date, article title, and journal (as above); where volume and/or page numbers are not available, substitute Digital Object Identifier (DOI) number. Numbered references to personal communication, unpublished data, or manuscripts either "in preparation" or "submitted for publication" are unacceptable. If essential, such material can be incorporated at the appropriate place in the text.
