Original Articles

Original articles cover scientific reports from original basic or clinical research, and may include intervention studies, cohort studies, case-control studies, epidemiologic assessments, and other observational studies. Each manuscript should state clearly the objective or hypothesis, the study design and methods, the essential features of any interventions, the outcomes or results of the study, and a discussion section placing the results in context with the published literature.

Review Articles

Review Articles provide systematic, critical assessments of the literature and data sources pertaining to special scientific or clinical topics, and are designed to bring the reader up to date on the state of knowledge in the subject area under review. Clinical reviews should emphasize clinically germane factors such as cause, diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, or prevention. Review articles are usually solicited by the editors, but the Journal will consider unsolicited material.

Brief Reports
