The journal follows the British conventions of spelling, punctuation and grammar. All submitted articles must have excellent design and correct methods of statistical analysis. The statistical methods must be appropriate to the study. Interpretation of data must be correct and accurate.
We operate the peer review system. All submitted articles are first red by at least a member of the Editorial Board. Those potentially acceptable are then passed on to referees who are experts in the various fields concerned. We ask referees to comment on originality, scientific reliability and clinical relevance or usefulness. Those adjudged suitable are then submitted to statistician for statistical review. Those that fall short may be rejected outright or sent back to authors for corrections. For rejected articles, only one copy will be given to the author(s). Those that successfully pass through all the stages will be considered for publication. Two copies of revised manuscripts should be sent back to the Editor-in-Chief.
