Tips and useful hints for our Authors

In order to make life easier both for you and for us in the editorial team, we would like to specify a few rules and guidelines.

FORMATS
Please deliver your script in five parts of different data formats:

– Word document, Standard 12 Pt., Times New Roman.
– Signpost the positions of illustrations and tables in italics, for example: (Fig. 1) or (Table 1).
– Add all captions for pictures and tables at the end of the text, for example (Fig. 1: Suture).
– At the very end: Author’s address.
– Pictures and diagrams, once integrated into Word, can be no longer processed. This is why we must ask you to deliver separate picture files.
– Illustrations and diagrams should carry a number – for example: Fig. 1 – so the printers know where to put them in the text. They should also carry a caption.
– Both slides and photos are possible. Digital images are best, because they can be most easily processed provided they have a resolution of at least 300 dpi on an image size of 100 %.
– Unfortunately, we cannot process Powerpoint files. Please use only Corel Draw, Freehand, Illustrator or jpg files.
– Only in Word or Excel. No picture files please.

(More complex subjects can be sub-divided into 2 or 3 individual articles in agreement with the Editor-in- Chief). Please no rigidly academic structure because we cannot print bibliographies.
– Reports (congresses, conferences, special events): 2 (script) pages max.
