Manuscript Revisions

Processing charges and submission codes are NOT required for revisions to previously submitted papers. To upload a revision of a paper, the submitting author should log in to their Author Center at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/aidspatientcare and click on “Revised Manuscripts in Draft.” The paper will appear in this area, and the submitting author will be able to upload revised files without paying any charges or entering a submission code.

Please be sure to follow the Instructions for Authors below on Manuscript Preparation.  Authors whose submissions do not comply with the Instructions for Authors will have their papers un-submitted so that the file(s) may be adjusted accordingly. Directions regarding the necessary corrective actions will be provided in an email to the corresponding author at the time the paper is un-submitted. The submitting author/agent will then be provided the opportunity to re-upload the corrected file(s). If a paper is un-submitted, the paper will reside in the corresponding author’s “Author Center” as a draft, and the submitting author/agent will be able to make the necessary adjustments and re-upload the paper without incurring another manuscript processing charge.  

*The manuscript processing charge is independent of editorial decision and is non-refundable.


Preparation of Manuscript
Be sure these instructions are followed exactly.
 

We welcome contributions on topics of major significance in biotherapy, radiopharmaceuticals, and related fields that may be of the following types: (1) Reviews; (2) Research Papers; and (3) Short Communications. Each coauthor accepts responsibility for the entire contents of the manuscript. Contributions to the journal are published at no charge to the author. Once a paper has been accepted for publication, it cannot be withdrawn.   Authors will have the option to indicate one reviewer who should be excluded (non-preferred) from review of their manuscript.   Authors will also have the option to suggest preferred reviewers during the submission process if they like.

 

Abstracts
ABSTRACT should be capitalized and centered on the page and have one space below. The text of the abstract is single spaced and should be limited to 200 words. This should appear on a separate page.

Key words
Please provide a short list of key words to follow the Abstract.  You will also be asked to enter keywords during online submission.

Tables and Figures
Each table should be prepared in a separate file. Tables should be cited in the text (see Table 1). Tables should be submitted in Microsoft Word.
 

Each figure should be prepared in a separate file with the figure number visible. Each figure should be cited in text (Fig. 1). Legends should be on a separate page from the figures.

 

Please follow these guidelines for submitting figures: 

  • Do NOT embed art files into a Word or PDF document.
  • Line illustrations should be submitted at 1200 dpi.
  • Halftones and color should be submitted at a minimum of 300 dpi.
  • Save as either TIFF or EPS files.

Please name your artwork files with the submitting author's name i.e. SmithFig1.tif, SmithTable2.tif etc. Label figures and tables inside the files in addition to naming the file with the figure or table number. (ie: When figures or table files are opened, the figure or table number should appear inside the file.)  Authors who do not follow these guidelines may have their submission returned to them without being reviewed.

You will be given directions on how to correct any files which do not pass.

Other types of affiliation, including consultantships, honoraria, stock ownership, equity interests, arrangements regarding patents, or other vested interests should be disclosed in the Acknowledgments section.

References

Cite references within the text by a superscripted Arabic number as in the following example: [. . .as described previously. 1,4 ]. List references by number (1, 2, etc.) in the order in which they appear in the text. Type single spaced, although separated from each other by one line of space.

IMPORTANT

Please upload individual files of all manuscript material—do NOT upload a single PDF file containing all text, figure, and table files of your paper. Once all individual files are uploaded onto Manuscript Central, the system will automatically create a single PDF proof for you and the peer-review process.

Disclosures

Funding sources for research must be disclosed for all manuscripts accepted for publication.
