Animal Studies
It is the responsibility of the authors to assure that their experimental procedures are in compliance with the guiding principles in the “Care and Use of Animals” (published each month in the “Information for Authors” of the American Journal of Physiology or available online at http://www.nap.edu/books/0309053773/html/ and to document that these studies were approved by the appropriate institutional animal care and oversight committee.
Ethical and Humane Considerations
Journal of Indian Academy of Oral Medicine and Radiology is dedicated to the humane and ethical conduct of all studies involving living subjects. All clinical trials involving human subjects must be registered, retroactively if necessary, before being considered for publication.
In studies with human subjects, the author must indicate in the “Methods section” whether the procedures, including obtaining informed consent, were conducted in accordance with the ethical standards of the Committee on Human Experimentation of the institution in which the experiments were done or in accordance with the ethical standards of the "Helsinki Declaration of 1975".
For experiments with animal subjects, briefly explain the measures taken to ensure compliance with established guidelines for humane use and care of laboratory animals, citing the origin of these guides (e.g. institution’s Animal Care Committee, US Dept. Agriculture, NIH, National Research Council, others).
To qualify for authorship, each author should contribute substantially to the intellectual content of the work from inception to published article. Such contribution consists of: (1) Participating in the conception and design or analysis and interpretation of data; (2) Drafting the article or critically revising it; and (3) Approving the final version submitted, and approving any subsequent revisions. All three conditions must be met to justify authorship.
Conflict of Interest/financial Disclosure: Authors are required to disclose any financial interests, direct or indirect (dual commitment), that might affect the conduct or reporting of the work they have submitted. Such financial interests may take the form of corporate appointments, consultancies, stock ownership, other equity interests or patent licensing arrangements with companies mentioned in or related to the subject matter of the article being submitted. A full disclosure is desirable. Such financial interests should be disclosed to the Editor-in-Chief in the cover letter, on a separate conflict of interest page in the manuscript and on the conflict of interest forms accompanying the article at the time of submission. The conflicts of interest disclosed on the conflict of interest form should be the same as those disclosed on the conflict of interest page in the manuscript. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to ensure that all coauthors provide the necessary disclosure information. Conflict of Interest forms can be found on the online submission site ( http://www.jaypeejournals.com) and on the JIAOMR web site (http://www.jiaomr.com). Conflict of interest information will be published for all accepted manuscripts.
American Association of Medical Colleges Guidelines: In September of 2006, the ASBMR Council voted to adopt the AAMC "Principles for Protecting Integrity in the Conduct and Reporting of Clinical Trials." Please find a list of these guidelines at the AAMC website.
Please read over the guidelines to ensure that your manuscript and study comply with these principles. We now require that you initial a line on the conflict of interest form stating that your study has complied with a prespecified analysis. Additionally, each manuscript must disclose, on the conflict of interest page, the role each author has played in conducting the study and preparation of the manuscript.
Duplicate Publication: The Journal will not accept duplicate publication of scientific data. Manuscripts submitted to World Journal of Endocrine Surgery should not have been published/ accepted for publication or simultaneously submitted. The 'possible" duplicate manuscript should be submitted with the original publication (s) and the authors should provide documentation/ statement to justify the originality of the newly submitted manuscript.
Human Subject Studies: It is the responsibility of the authors to assure that all clinical investigations detailed in manuscripts submitted to the World Journal of Endocrine Surgery are conducted in accordance with the "Declaration of Helsinki" and to document that these studies have been approved by the appropriate institutional human research committee of the institution(s) with which the authors are affiliated. It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that a patient’s anonymity be completely protected. It is the authors responsibility to ensure that identifying information within written descriptions, photographs (authors should mask patient’s eyes in such a manner as to prevent identification) or pedigrees is not published. If such information is included as essential scientific information, the authors must obtain and submit written consent of patient or guardian to publish such photographs in the print and electronic versions of the journal.
Prior Publication: The Journal will accept original manuscripts that contain material that has not been reported elsewhere, except in the form of an abstract of not more than 400 words, or an alternative short communication. If any preliminary report other than an abstract has been published or submitted, copies must be submitted with the manuscript and this must be noted in the cover letter to the editor. Prior abstract presentations must be described in a footnote to the title. Initial submissions must be accompanied by the copyright assignment form, with original signatures of all authors.
Shared Material: As a condition for publication, cell lines, hybridomas, DNA clones, antibodies, biological reagents and animal models described in papers published in the Journal will be made available to scientists in non-commercial institutions for purposes of replicating the reported studies.
The Editorial team has established a process under which all manuscripts would undergo an initial review by the editorial staff, comprising of an editor, one Associate Editor, and at least one member of the Editorial board to ensure the manuscript meets certain criteria. Under this scheme, some of the new submissions may be returned to the authors without formal review, for reasons that may include:
• Insufficient direct relevance to endocrine surgery,
• Inadequate or unethical methodology,
• Inadequate statistical power or assessment.
All other manuscripts will undergo the full peer review process, being referred to an Associate Editor, who will identify reviewers (from the preapproved list of reviewers) with the expertise to review the manuscript.
Reviews and decisions on manuscripts in which the editor or one of the associate editors is a coauthor are managed independently by another associate editor, in conjunction with a member of the editorial board.
Corresponding authors will receive a full response on their manuscript detailing any changes required by the Reviewers and Editorial team and the decision about the acceptance or otherwise of the manuscript. Authors who wish to object to an unfavorable decision must do so within two months of notification of a decision.
Responsibilities of Reviewers: External peer reviewers should disclose to the Editor-in-Chief any potential conflicts of interest that could bias their opinions of the manuscript.
Time Table
The Editorial Board at JIAOMR follows a rigid time table and as far as possible tries to adhere to it.
1. Time from receiving manuscript to initial (provisional) approval/disapproval by editorial board.   7 days
2. Time from approval to completion of peer review.   4 weeks
3. Time for authors to send back the correction or explanations to comments by peer reviewers.   2 weeks
4. Time for final acceptance by the editorial board based on peer review process.   2 weeks
5. Time for authors to send in the final corrected draft.   2 weeks
6. Time for JIAOMR to set up the article in its format.   8 days
7. Time for authors to do the final proof reading.   7 days
8. Time for JIAOMR to do the proof read changes.   3 days
9. Time for JIAOMR to publish the online first version (only if time to final publication is more than 15 days).   5 days
The manuscripts will be reviewed for possible publication on the understanding that they are being submitted only to one journal at one time and have not been published, simultaneously submitted, or accepted for publication elsewhere.
1. As the first step, the editors review all the submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts that are not original enough, indicate serious scientific flaws, or do not convey significant messages would be rejected (read editorial statements).
2. All the manuscripts that are submitted are duly acknowledged.
3. Each manuscript would be initially screened by a nonmedical editor in order to check for the conformity with our journal and completeness of the article. Only complete articles whould be finally accepted and forwarded to the editors each manuscript would be then reviewed by the medical members of the editorial team. They inform the author if the article has been accepted for peer review or has been rejected. If rejected, the corresponding author will be informed via an e-mail.
4. If approved for peer review the article is then placed under the supervision of one (out of the initial three) member of the editorial team. The manuscripts are then de-identified and sent to two or more expert reviewers. The comments of the reviewers are forwarded to the author for explanation or draft improvement.
5. After receipt of the answers or revised draft from the authors in response to the peer review comments, the coordinating editor takes the final decision regarding the acceptance of the manuscript. The whole process is completed within 6-7 weeks.
6. Language edit: The manuscripts that are accepted are edited for grammar, punctuation, style, and format. Page proofs will be sent to the author and have to be returned within three days. Any correction or modification made to the manuscript after that period may not be included.
7. Note: The e-mails containing original manuscripts, which have been rejected, will be removed from our system within 30 days of editorial board communicating its decision.

E. Text of the Manuscript/article
We wish to emphasize the importance of clarity and succinctness of the presentation of material. Please respect the relevance of all material to the Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion (IMRD ) and avoid unnecessary repetition. Do not repeat the results and conclusions in the Introduction. Conclusions should NOT be stated throughout the Results section.Results should not be restated throughout the Discussion section. Avoid simply restating the Results in the Discussion rather than explaining how each result advances the overall conclusions of the study. The final part of the Discussion should refer back to the rationale for the study and explain how the findings have advanced the area. We strongly recommend authors to employ the format and guidelines detailed below.The International system of Units (SI units) is recommended. It is desirable to include appropriate conversion factors to aid the reader.
This should clearly state the purpose of the study and identify what issues are going to be addressed.
Materials and Methods
This section should carefully describe the selection of the observational or experimental subjects (human or nonhuman ) and methods and materials used, including sample size and statistical approaches. Commonly used techniques or methods should be referred to appropriate references and should be described in brief. However, unique experiments, methods, technique should be described in adequate detail to allow other workers to reproduce the results.
For studies involving living subjects, please see section, below, on Ethical and Humane Considerations and the information regarding mandatory clinical trial registration.
This section should succinctly state the results without any lengthy discussion or interpretation of individual data. Data should be presented using tables, illustrations and graphs. Data in table or illustration form should be referenced in the text, not repeated (e.g. detailed information should not be given in text and tables). Statistical tests should be clearly defined and statistical significance should be shown in both figures and tables with the help of superscripts such as a, b, c, rather than *, ¶, # or other non-sequential symbols.
The Discussion should focus on the new and important findings of the study. The observations should be related to other relevant studies in a logical sequence. It should summarize, but not repeat the Results. The Discussion should end with a summary of the data and conclusions. The conclusions should be linked with the aims and objectives of the study and should clearly state whether the objective was achieved. Limitations of the study should also be mentioned.
