For authors and reviewers

Patient confidentiality

Patients are entitled to respect of their confidentiality, which may not be breached without their informed consent. Identifying information may not be included in the written text, in photographs or in genealogies, unless this information is essential from a scientific point of view and unless the patient (or his/her parent or guardian) has given informed consent to the publication of this information. In this case the patient must be given access to the manuscript. The provision by the patient of his/her informed consent must be indicated in the printed article.

Manuscript requirements

The whole manuscript and any attachments must be available in electronic form.

The manuscript can be sent in English, Czech, or Slovak. The journal also allows the publication of bilingual work (English or Czech + Slovak + English), where the Czech or Slovak version is published in both the printed and electronic version of the journal, and then English only in an electronic version.

The text of the manuscript must be prepared in Microsoft Word (Microsoft Office 2000 or later). Use double line spacing for the text including legends and use of Times New Roman 12pt is recommended with a text width of 15 cm. Each section should begin on a new page. For the manuscript as a whole, number the pages starting with the title page. The page number should be placed at the bottom of the page in the centre. Please use the following order: Title page including acknowledgements, abstract and key words, text, and literature review.

Tables may also be created in Microsoft Word (or using another table editor), which can be edited. Place each table on a separate page, number the tables consecutively in the order in which they are first cited in the text, and add a short title to each table. Explanatory notes should be placed in the table footer, but never in the header. In the footer, explain all abbreviations used in each table. Check that each table is cited in the text. Files should be named using the same convention as the text (Vomacka.Parkinson.tables.doc). Similarly, graphs and diagrams need to be editable (MS Excel) and include source data (xls, eps, wmf, emf, cdr, al, pdf). Figures should be sent in tiff, eps, or jpg format. Check that each figure is cited in the text. Tables created using Microsoft Word should insert the text file, as well as Legends to figures. Tables should be sent as a separate file.

Photographs should be sent with the necessary print resolution (300 dpi) as follows:

  • The minimum width of a picture fitting the width of a journal column should be 700 pixels (6 cm);

  • The minimum width of a picture fitting the width of two journal columns should be 1,500 pixels (12.5 cm);

  • The minimum width of a picture fitting the width of three journal columns should be 2,200 pixels (18.5 cm).

Legends for graphic materials should be added to the text file, as well as for References. If any symbols, arrows, numbers, or letters have been used in the description of the image, explain these in the legend.

Use only standard abbreviations. Avoid abbreviations in the heading and abstract. The full name must precede the first use of an abbreviation – with the exception of standard abbreviations for units of measurement.

Manuscript preparation

Manuscript preparation is governed by pertinent Czech Technical Standards and must comply with the requirements for manuscript publication in biomedical journals set forth by the ICMJE (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors – http://www.icmje.org/ethical_1author.html).

The text of the original article is divided into sections: introduction, materials and methodology, results, and discussion. For long articles, subheadings can be clarified under main headings (especially in the results section and discussion). The review article is divided into these parts: introduction, text, and conclusion. The case study is divided as follows: introduction, own observation, discussion, and conclusion.

1. Title page

  • type of work (original article, review article, case study, …)
  • short and concise title of the article in Czech and English • first name, surname of author / authors (Jan Novák, Hana Nováková)
  • name of the workplace where the work comes from – in case of a different workplace, mark it with a number as a superscript (Jan Novák1, Hana Nováková2)

2. Abstract and key words • both unstructured and structured abstracts should not be longer than 200 words (English abstracts can range up to 300 words)

  • the abstract must provide an overview of the aim of the study, the basic procedures, the main facts found (if possible, specific data and their statistical significance), and the basic conclusions – must emphasize new and important aspects of the work
  • structured abstract (required in the Original article) must contain the following components: objective, materials and methods, results, and conclusions
  • below the abstract, the author lists 3–10 key words or short word connection; when choosing keywords by the authors, they are based on the recommended terms in English and are listed on the web in the National Library of Medicine website: Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/Mbrowser.html

Do not use abbreviations in the abstract or in the key words!

3. Custom manuscript text Introduction

  • briefly captures the purpose of the work and summarizes justification of the study or observation

Patient population and methodology

  • methods used (for instruments, indicate manufacturer) and the procedures are described in such detail that they can be replicated by others in the workplace
  • the drugs used are accurately characterized and so are the chemicals (generic names for drugs, company possibly in parentheses)
  • indicate the number of observations used for the method of statistical evaluation and significance of results

Results

  • a brief and concise summary of the achieved results

Discussion

  • new and important ones are highlighted in particular aspects of the work, evaluation of the study effect, and comparison with similar studies

Conclusion

  • brief summary of the article

Further text editing

  •  please pay attention to autocorrect of the text words and names
  • if you point out a work in the text written by multiple authors, insert et al. (e.g., Jones et al. for the first time described… “)
  •  write out numbers up to nine as text, and from 10 use numbers
  • do not use automatic links (for tables, figures, literature)
  •  abbreviations in the text must be explained in words (CIN – cervical intraepithelial neoplasia)
  • links in the text to figures and tables are always in parentheses inside or at the end of sentences, and at the end of the paragraph (Fig. 1), (Graph 1), (Tab. 1)
  •  references in the text to the citation of the literature: numbers of the citations must be in parentheses – [14], [14,15], [14–18], and must correspond to a literary reference (literary references must be numbered in the order in which they were first mentioned in the text)

Grants, acknowledgements, statements, etc. appear before the references

  • example: Supported by program project of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic with Reg. No. AZV 19-99999A, GACR No. 19-00000 and partly by MZ ČR – RVO (FNXY, 99999999) and Charles University (PROGRESS Q99)

Declaration of conflict of interest

  • example:

This study was sponsored by XX (company name).

Dr. Novák served on the Scientific Council for XY (company name) and received support research from XYZ (company name).

Dr. Novák has no conflict of interest.

  • contacting the main author: full name including titles, address to which correspondence will be sent regarding the manuscript, and email

4. References

  • the number of citations is not limited, but it is recommended to cite only the literature from which the author drew information or suggestions, or which was compared with the results (maximum of 30–40 citations is expected that are not older than five years), and with emphasis on citations from domestic authors
  • all references must be included in the text and in the reference section (literary references can be cited directly in tables or legends). The tables and figures are numbered depending on the order in which they appear for the first time in the text
