    • Please make sure that the article submitted for review/ publication is not under consideration elsewhere simultaneously.
    • Clearly mention financial support or benefits if any from commercial sources for the work reported in the manuscript, or any other financial interests that any of the authors may have, which could create a potential conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest with regard to the work.
    • A clear title of the article along with complete details of the author/s (professional/ institutional affiliation, educational qualifications and contact information) must be provided in the title page.
    • Corresponding author should include address, telephone number and e-mail address in the first page of the manuscript and authors must address any conflict of interest with others once the article is published.
    • Number all sheets in succession, including references, tables, and figure legends.

    Clinical Images
    Clinical Images are photographic depictions of the patient’s body - such as an injury, skin lesion or body fluid - or an image of a pathology report, diagnostic image, or medication. It should not exceed more than 5 figures with a description, not exceeding 300 words. Generally, no references and citations are required here. If necessary, only three references can be allowed.

    Case Study / Case Reports
    A case report is a detailed report of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient. Case reports usually describe an unusual or novel occurrence and as such, remain one of the cornerstones of medical progress and provide many new ideas in medicine.

    Reasons for Publishing a Case Report
    1) An unexpected association between diseases or symptoms; 2) an unexpected event in the course observing or treating a patient; 3) findings that shed new light on the possible pathogenesis of a disease or an adverse effect; 4) unique or rare features of disease; 5) unique therapeutic approaches; variation of anatomical structures.

    Structure of a Case Report

    Case reports include the following components: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Case presentation, Discussion, Conclusion and References.

    You must select a title that grabs attention, accurately describes the contents of your manuscript and makes people want to read further.

    The abstract should summarize the case, the problem it addresses, and the message it conveys. Abstracts of case studies are usually very short, preferably not more than 150 words.

    Keywords are a tool to help indexers and search engines find relevant papers. Keywords should ideally be phrases of 3-6 words.

    The introduction gives a brief overview of the problem that the case addresses, citing relevant literature where necessary. The introduction generally ends with a single sentence describing the patient and the basic condition that he or she is suffering from.

    Case Presentation
    This section provides the details of the case in the following order:

    • Patient description
    • Case history
    • Physical examination results
    • Results of pathological tests and other investigations
    • Treatment plan
    • Expected outcome of the treatment plan
    • Actual outcome.

    The author should ensure that all the relevant details are included and unnecessary ones excluded.

    This section should start by expanding on what has been said in the introduction, focusing on why the case is noteworthy and the problem that it addresses. This is followed by a summary of the existing literature on the topic. This part describes the existing theories and research findings on the key issue in the patient's condition.

    A case report ends with a conclusion or with summary points. This section should briefly give readers the key points covered in the case report. Here, the author can give suggestions and recommendations to clinicians, teachers, or researchers.

    Acknowledge anyone who provided intellectual assistance, technical help (including with writing and editing), or special equipment or materials. Provide information about funding by including specific grant numbers and titles.

    The preferred file formats for photographic images are .doc, TIFF, PNG and JPEG. Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.

    Tables are a concise and effective way to present large amounts of data. You should design them carefully so that you clearly communicate your results.

    Only published or accepted manuscripts should be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. All personal communications should be supported by a letter from the relevant authors.

    Salford Publishers uses the numbered citation (citation-sequence) method. References are listed and numbered in the order that they appear in the text. In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. A range should be given where there are three or more sequential citations. Example: "... now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]." Make sure the parts of the manuscript are in the correct order for the relevant journal before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the manuscript.  

    All references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the papers they cite, proper formatting of the references is crucial. Please use the following style for the reference list:
