Abstract – Limit of 250 Words

A brief summary of the research.  The abstract should include a brief introduction, a description of the hypothesis tested, the approach used to test the hypothesis, the results seen and the conclusions of the work.

Key words

Please, write no more than six keywords. Write specific keywords. They should be written left aligned, arranged alphabetically in 12pt Times Roman, and the line must begin with the words Keywords boldfaced. 


Description of the research area, pertinent background information, and the hypotheses tested in the study should be included under this section. The introduction should provide sufficient background information such that a scientifically literate reader can understand and appreciate the experiments to be described. The introduction MUST include in-text citations including references to pertinent reviews and primary scientific literature. The specific aims of the project should be identified along with a rationale for the specific experiments and other work performed.

Materials and Methods

Materials and/or subjects utilized in the study as well as the procedures undertaken to complete the work. The methods should be described in sufficient detail such that they could be repeated by a competent researcher. Please include the company sources for all uncommon reagents (kits, drugs, etc). Illustrations and/or tables may be helpful in describing complex equipment or elaborate procedures. The statistical tool used to analyze the data should be mentioned. All procedures involving experimental animals or human subjects must accompany with statement on necessary ethical approval from appropriate ethics committee.


Data acquired from the research with appropriate statistical analysis described in the methods section should be included in this section. The results section should describe the rational for each experiment, the results obtained and its significance. Results should be organized into figures and tables with descriptive captions. The captions, although brief, should tell the reader the method used, explain any abbreviations included in the figure, and should end with a statement as to the conclusion of the figure. Qualitative as well as quantitative results should be included if applicable.


This section should relate the results section to current understanding of the scientific problems being investigated in the field. Description of relevant references to other work/s in the field should be included here. This section also allows you to discuss the significance of your results - i.e. does the data support the hypotheses you set out to test? This section should end with new answers/questions that arise as a result of your work.

Tables and Figures


Each table must start on a separate sheet. They should be numbered with Roman numerals according to their sequence in the text, and have a short self-explanatory heading. Use SI units. Tables should include vertical rules, but horizontal rules should separate column headings from the content. Authors should keep in mind the page layout of the journal when designing tables. Tables that fit onto one printed page are preferred. Detailed explanations of symbols, units, statistics and abbreviations should follow below the table.


Figures for final production should be submitted as electronic files and hard copy so that the editorial office can ensure that the output of electronic files matches the hardcopy. Please pay particular attention to the guidelines below. The editorial office cannot undertake preparation of manuscripts and illustrations not conforming to journal style. Manuscripts of insufficient quality will be returned immediately without refereeing. A high standard of illustration (both line and photo) is an editorial priority. All illustrations should be prepared for printing to fit 80 x 240 mm (column width) or 169 mm by up to 240 mm (full page) size. It is preferred that the full-page length is not used and that authors keep in mind that the caption will be placed underneath the figure. In the event that full-page length is necessary for plates, captions will have to appear on adjacent pages. Figure(s) must be numbered consecutively in the text. Compound figures with more than one micrograph or photo should be referred by a single figure reference (e.g. Figure 1), and individual parts should be labeled with capitalized letters in the lower left-hand corner. Lettering should be of a sans-serif type (i.e. fonts without serifs such as Arial) with a minimum published size of 4.2 mm (12 pt). Descriptive labeling in the figures should be clearly readable, and all lettering should have a minimum published size of 6 pt (2.1 mm) for labeling items on photographs or in line art is recommended and a maximum size of 10 pt is suggested. Use a scale bar to indicate magnifications and place in the lower right corner if possible. Computer prepared photographic images must be at a minimum of 350 dpi at the final publication size. Lower resolution will result in pixilation and poor quality images. These should be submitted as JPEG, TIFF or PPT files, but encapsulated postscript (EPS) format is also acceptable.  

Computer drawn figures are accepted provided they are of high quality. Please note that graphs produced by many statistic packages are rarely adequate. In particular, letter quality on axes and captions are often poor. Such figures should be exported into an accepted graphics package and lettering rendered using a text function. Authors should note that .dot, .bmp, and .pat fills should be avoided. Do not use postscripts fill patterns as these are often based on bit map patterns that result in screening patterns during final reproduction? When filling illustrations, use fills such as lines, tints or solids. Line width minimum is 0.25 pt (0.09 mm). Also avoid the use of bitmap scans to render text and detail. Text should be saved as text at a minimum text size of 6 pt (2.1 mm). Please submit line art as Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, or EPS files. These must be at a minimum resolution of 800 DPI at publication size. High resolution may be necessary where fine line detail is present.

For graphs Excel graphs are also acceptable. Note that vertical axes must all be at the same scale especially where the paper compares between them. Otherwise they should be produced as separate figures. Avoid 3D plots when presenting 2D data. Where electronic figures are submitted, please submit a hard copy also at final acceptance stage so that it can be checked against the electronic files during proof preparation.

Table and Figure legends

Figure and table legends should be included at the end of the manuscript. Figure legends should include a statement at the end of each legend about reproduction size (e.g. at full page width, at column width). They should be double spaced and typed in the journal format. Explanations should be brief and authors should keep in mind that legends will be placed below figures.

In-text citation

Correct / Acceptable Format

Natural products have proven to be a great source of new biologically active compounds. Thus, in an effort to discover new lead anti-malarial compounds, several research group screen plant extracts to detect secondary metabolites with relevant biological activities that could served as templates for the development of new drugs. Flavonoids have been isolated and characterized from many medicinal plants used in malaria endemic areas.[10] However, controversial data have been obtained regarding their antiplasmodial activity, probably because of their structural diversity.[11-13]. More recently, several flavonoids have been isolated from Artemisia afra [14] and Artemisia indica [15], two plants related to Artemisia annua, the famous traditional Chinese medicinal plant from which artemisinin is isolated.

 Article withdrawal

Red Flower Publication recognizes the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record to researchers and librarians and attaches the highest importance to maintaining trust in the authority of its electronic archive.

Red Flower Publication's policy

It is a general principle of scholarly communication that the editor of a learned journal is solely and independently responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal shall be published. In making this decision the editor is guided by policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. An outcome of this principle is the importance of the scholarly archive as a permanent, historic record of the transactions of scholarship. Articles that have been published shall remain extant, exact and unaltered as far as is possible. However, very occasionally circumstances may arise where an article is published that must later be retracted or even removed. Such actions must not be undertaken lightly and can only occur under exceptional circumstances.

This policy has been designed to address these concerns and to take into account current best practice in the scholarly and library communities. As standards evolve and change, we will revisit this issue and welcome the input of scholarly and library communities. We believe these issues require international standards and we will be active in lobbying various information bodies to establish international standards and best practices that the publishing and information industries can adopt.

Article Withdrawal

Only used for Articles in Press which represent early versions of articles and sometimes contain errors, or may have been accidentally submitted twice. Occasionally, but less frequently, the articles may represent infringements of professional ethical codes, such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or the like. Articles in Press (articles that have been accepted for publication but which have not been formally published and will not yet have the complete volume/issue/page information) that include errors, or are discovered to be accidental duplicates of other published article(s), or are determined to violate our journal publishing ethics guidelines in the view of the editors (such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or the like), may be "Withdrawn" from us. Withdrawn means that the article content (HTML and PDF) is removed and replaced with a HTML page and PDF simply stating that the article has been withdrawn according to the Red Flower Publication Policy on Article in Press Withdrawal with a link to the current policy document.

Article Retraction

Infringements of professional ethical codes, such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or the like. Occasionally a retraction will be used to correct errors in submission or publication. The retraction of an article by its authors or the editor under the advice of members of the scholarly community has long been an occasional feature of the learned world. Standards for dealing with retractions have been developed by a number of library and scholarly bodies, and this best practice is adopted for article retraction by Red Flower Publications:

  • A retraction note titled "Retraction: [article title]" signed by the authors and/or the editor is published in the paginated part of a subsequent issue of the journal and listed in the contents list.
  • In the electronic version, a link is made to the original article.
  • The online article is preceded by a screen containing the retraction note. It is to this screen that the link resolves; the reader can then proceed to the article itself.
  • The original article is retained unchanged save for a watermark on the .pdf indicating on each page that it is "retracted."
  • The HTML version of the document is removed.

Article Removal: Legal limitations

In an extremely limited number of cases, it may be necessary to remove an article from the online database. This will only occur where the article is clearly defamatory, or infringes others legal rights, or where the article is, or we have good reason to expect it will be, the subject of a court order, or where the article, if acted upon, might pose a serious health risk. In these circumstances, while the metadata (Title and Authors) will be retained, the text will be replaced with a screen indicating the article has been removed for legal reasons.

Article Replacement

In cases where the article, if acted upon, might pose a serious health risk, the authors of the original article may wish to retract the flawed original and replace it with a corrected version. In these circumstances the procedures for retraction will be followed with the difference that the database retraction notice will publish a link to the corrected re-published article and a history of the document.

 Types of Manuscript

Original Research

Original Articles are scientific reports of the results of original clinical research. The text is limited to 2700 words, with an abstract, a maximum of 5 tables and figures (total), and up to 40 references.

Special Articles are scientific reports of original research in such areas as economic policy, ethics, law, and health care delivery. The text is limited to 2700 words, with an abstract, a maximum of 5 tables and figures (total), and up to 40 references.

Cases Reports

Brief Reports usually describe one to three patients or a single family. The text is limited to 2000 words, a maximum of 3 tables and figures (total), and up to 25 references. They begin with a brief summary of no more than 100 words.

Clinical Problem-Solving manuscripts consider the step-by-step process of clinical decision making. Information about a patient is presented to an expert clinician or clinicians in stages (indicated by boldface type in the manuscript) to simulate the way such information emerges in clinical practice. The clinician responds (in regular type) as new information is presented, sharing his or her reasoning with the reader. The text should not exceed 2500 words, and there should be no more than 20 references. The use of clinical illustrative materials, such as x-ray films, is encouraged.

Review Articles

Review articles are usually solicited by the editors, but we will consider unsolicited material. All review articles undergo the same peer-review and editorial process as original research reports. They should be written for the general physician, not specialists. Consequently, they may include material that might be considered too introductory for specialists in the field being covered.

Conflicts of Interest: Because the essence of review articles is selection and interpretation of the literature, the Journal expects that the authors of such articles will not have significant financial associations with a company (or its competitor) that makes a product discussed in the article.

Clinical Practice articles are evidence-based reviews of topics relevant to practicing physicians, both primary care providers and specialists. Articles in this series should include the following sections: the clinical problem, strategies and evidence, areas of uncertainty, guidelines from professional societies, and the authors' conclusions and recommendations. The text is limited to 2500 words and a small number of figures and tables. These articles do not include an abstract.

Clinical Therapeutics articles are evidence-based reviews of topics relevant to practicing physicians. The series focuses on clinically oriented information about specific forms of therapy,including drugs, devices, and procedures. Each article in the series begins with a clinical vignette describing a patient with a specified condition for whom the treatment under discussion has been recommended. This vignette is followed by a definition of the clinical problem, a description of the pathphysiology and how the therapy works, clinical evidence, clinical use (including costs), adverse effects, areas of uncertainty, guidelines, and recommendations. The text is limited to 2500 words. These articles do not include an abstract.

Current Concepts articles focus on clinical topics, including those in specialty areas but of wide interest. The text is limited to 2400 words, with a maximum of 4 figures and tables (total), and up to 50 references. These articles do not include an abstract.

Drug Therapy articles detail the pharmacology and use of specific drugs or classes of drugs, or the various drugs used to treat particular diseases. The text is limited to 3300 words, with a maximum of 5 figures and tables (total), and up to 100 references. These articles do not include an abstract.

Mechanisms of Disease articles discuss the cellular and molecular mechanisms of diseases or categories of diseases. The text is limited to 3000 words, with a maximum of 5 figures and tables (total), and up to 100 references. These articles do not include an abstract.

Medical Progress articles provide comprehensive, scholarly overviews of important clinical subjects, with the principal (but not exclusive) focus on developments during the past five years. Each article details how the perception of a disease, disease category, diagnostic approach, or therapeutic intervention has evolved in recent years. The text is limited to 3300 words, with a maximum of 5 tables and figures (total), and up to 100 references. These articles do not include an abstract.

Letter to the Editor

Letters to the Editor provide a forum for readers to comment about articles recently published in the Journal, and they are a place to publish concise articles, such as reports of novel cases. Letters to the Editor are considered for publication (subject to editing and abridgment) provided they do not contain material that has been submitted or published elsewhere.

Letters in reference to a Journal article must not exceed 175 words (excluding references), and must be received within three weeks after publication of the article. Letters not related to a Journal article must not exceed 400 words (excluding references).

A letter can have no more than five references and one figure or table.

A letter can be signed by no more than three authors.

You will be asked to include your full address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address. Financial associations or other possible conflicts of interest must be disclosed. You will receive an e-mailed acknowledgment of your submission. Additional information may also be found in our Frequently Asked Questions.

Other Submissions

Editorials usually provide commentary and analysis concerning an article in the issue of the Journal in which they appear. They may include 1 figure or table. They are nearly always solicited, although unsolicited editorials may occasionally be considered. Editorials are limited to 750 words, with up to 10 references.

Perspective articles cover a wide variety of topics of current interest in health care, medicine, and the intersection between medicine and society. We welcome submissions and proposals. Perspective articles are limited to 1000 to 1200 words and usually include one figure. There is a maximum of 5 references.

Sounding Board articles are opinion essays. They are similar to editorials but are not tied to a particular article. They often present opinions on health policy issues and are normally unsolicited. The text is limited to 2000 words.

Clinical Implications of Basic Research articles discuss single papers from preclinical journals. The purpose is to explain the findings and comment on their possible clinical applications in fewer than 750 words. There may be 1 figure and up to 5 references. We do not consider unsolicited manuscripts in this category.

Special Reports are miscellaneous articles of special interest to the medical community. They are limited to 2700 words.

Health Law, Ethics,and Human Rights are nearly always solicited, but we are willing to consider unsolicited manuscripts or proposals for manuscripts.

Health Policy Reports are nearly always solicited, but we are willing to consider unsolicited manuscripts or proposals for manuscripts.

Occasional Notes are accounts of personal experiences or descriptions of material from outside the usual areas of medical research and analysis.

Images in Clinical Medicineare classic images of common medical conditions. Images are an important part of much of what we do and learn in medicine. This feature is intended to capture the sense of visual discovery and variety that physicians experience. Images in Clinical Medicine are not intended as a vehicle for case reports.

Filler Photographs are unsolicited photographs, unrelated to the content of the Journal, that are published as space allows. There are no restrictions on subject matter, however photographs of recognizable people are not generally published.


  • Photo files must be submitted in JPEG format and have a file extension of .jpg or .jpeg.
  • Photos must be 1000 x 1000 pixels minimum to be considered for publication. To be eligible to be printed at the largest size, images should be 1730 pixels wide by 2000 pixels high or larger.
  • Photo files may be up to 10 MB in size.
  • Provide laser printed hard copies of all figures and graphics in black and white or colour (If any)
  • A maximum of five photos may be uploaded per session.

After submitting a photo you will be notified by email once it has been reviewed by our editors. You will also receive email notification if your photo is selected for publication.

 Protection of Patients' Rights

The right to give or withhold authorization of disclosures: The patient generally has the right to control who has access to confidential information except as otherwise provided by law. The patient needs to give specific authorization or permission to allow a third party to have access to confidential information.

The right to maintain privacy: Only those persons directly involved in the care of the patient's health problem should have access to private information. Health care workers should protect information revealed during provider-health care worker encounters, including all written or electronic records of these encounters.

The right to have autonomy: Autonomy is the right of a patient to determine what will be done with his or her body, personal belongings, and personal information; this concept applies to any adult person who is mentally competent. Sometimes the right to autonomy can be overridden in the interest of protecting others who may be harmed by the patient's decisions.

The right to be given information: The patient has a right to information about his or her medical diagnosis, treatment regimen, and progress. This allows the patient to make appropriate, informed decisions about his or her health care.

 Sending a revised manuscript

The authors revise the manuscript as advised by reviewers and submit the revised version. Typically, at this stage, authors are advised to prepare the manuscript by closely following the journals instructions about style and format and to submit the manuscript in electronic form.

 Proofs and Reprints

Usual practice will involve corresponding authors receiving email notification with a password and web address from which to download a PDF. Hard copies of proofs will not be mailed. To avoid delays in publication, corrections to proofs must be returned within 48 hours, by electronic transmittal, fax or mail. Authors will be charged for excessive correction at this stage of production. If authors do not return page proofs promptly, the Publisher reserves the choice to either delay publication to a subsequent issue or to proceed to press without author corrections. The Publisher reserves the right to proceed to press without submitting page proofs to the author.


Reprints can be ordered shortly after a paper is accepted for publication and can be customized to include color covers, disclaimers, product insertions and more.If you wish to pay online please click here
