Manuscript Preparation and Submission
1. General Considerations
Manuscripts should be submitted to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ajad
Average time from submission to first decision: 35 days
Files should be submitted in Microsoft Word and should include the following elements: complete author names, author contact information, author credentials and affiliations, acknowledgments, abstract (150 words or less), keywords, references, tables, illustrations, and legends. The format and style of the manuscript should follow the guidelines of AMA manual of style (10th ed.).
For details of manuscript preparation not covered herein, please examine recent issues of the Journal.
2. Submission Process
User Account – The Manuscript Central program asks authors to generate an author/reviewer account if one has not been created already. Authors are required to supply their first and last names, email addresses, and keywords chosen from a list of those used previously in the Journal.
Title, Abstract, and Keywords – Authors first supply the manuscript title and an abstract. The title should be reasonably short and communicate the main idea of the research. The abstract should not be longer than 150 words and should substantively summarize the article. Five keywords to facilitate electronic access to this manuscript should be listed after the abstract. Given that researchers increasingly rely upon Google Scholar and other search engines, choice of appropriate keywords is imperative to encourage downloads and citations.
Tables and Figures: All figures and tables should be titled and numbered Tables should be placed at the end of the file, following text and references, with callouts for each in the text. Elements in tables should be separated by tabs, not cells or lines. High-resolution figures should be uploaded as separate electronic files, with callouts for each in the text. Acceptable file formats for figures include TIFF, EPS, and JPEG, and PDF Microsoft Application Files are acceptable for vector art (line art). (Please do not send glossies).
Authors are responsible for correctness and completeness of references. References should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet of paper. They must be numbered consecutively in the order in which they appear in the text by superscript Arabic numerals. References should not include any unpublished observations or personal communications. References should be typed in the style adopted by the American Medical Association, listing up to 6 authors. For example, a standard journal article:
Schoni, MH, Casaulta-Aebischer C. Nutrition and lung function in cystic fibrosis patients: review. Clin Nutr. 2000;19:79-85
4. Permission Guidelines
Authors are solely responsible for obtaining all necessary permissions and for paying any associated fees. Permission must be granted in writing by the copyright holder and must accompany the submitted manuscript. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of facts, opinions, and interpretations expressed in the article.
All published materials are copyrighted by Sage Publications, Inc. Every lead author must sign an electronic contract before an article can be published.
Authors who would like to refine the use of English in their manuscripts might consider using the services of a professional English-language editing company. We highlight some of these companies at http://www.sagepub.com/journalgateway/engLang.htm.
Please be aware that SAGE has no affiliation with these companies and makes no endorsement of them. An author's use of these services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted. Any arrangement an author enters into will be exclusively between the author and the particular company, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author.
For more details, please review the submission guidelines.
