We appreciate your interest in our journal. We strive to make our collaboration productive and enjoyable for both parties, therefore we would strongly advise you to carefully read the Editorial Policies before you decide to submit a manuscript. We follow the standards of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors and cannot take the following explanations as strong arguments in case of a dispute:
- I have been writing research papers for many years, never heard of such requirements before.
- I have published a few works abroad; editors never asked me to do this!
- I was taught differently!
Personal experience is really important but following professional standards is preferable. Unfortunately, those two sometimes disagree.
