  • Any manuscript must consider all article writing standards based on the AMA Manual of Style for writing articles.
  • Any lack of "English" academic writing may lead to "fast rejection" of manuscripts. Therefore, the journal strongly recommend authors to consult their manuscripts with a native English speaker and edit them. 
  • To avoid the English editing surcharge, we recommend that non-native English speaking authors send their manuscripts to a professional English editing service prior to the submission of their manuscript to journals. We suggest using our special services provided by our company which are www.nedmedica.nl and www.articlex.ir
