Instruction to Authors

Instruction to Authors for Submission of Manuscript:

Articles should be submitted through the online article management system. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (available at http://www.icmje.org), and comply with the AMJ guidelines outlined herein. Failure to observe these requirements and instructions will result in a delay in the editorial process and could even result in rejection of the manuscript. Furthermore, any works submitted that do not follow these guidelines will be sent back to their respective authors, so that they can amend any issues detected, before the editorial process can go on.

File Formats

Manuscript should be submitted in PDF file format.

Articles should be uploaded onto the system in at least several separate files:

  • The first document should include the title page, a covering letter, an authorship statement, funding, acknowledgments and conflicts of interest.
  • The second document should include the main body of text (abstract and key words, introduction, methods, results, discussion, references, tables and figures captions).

Tables, figures, and illustrations should not be submitted as separate files; they should rather be placed within the text at the relevant points in logical order and numbered and captioned appropriately as outlined above.

Note: After saving the article, it will save only on your profile. To submit it to Editor in Chief, you have to click the View icon and at end of article click "Submit Article".
