Specific Guidelines

Article Type. (1) Research: A research article is a complete study of a research activity or part of a research with a complete study of the topic. The article must meet scientific principles, including experimental design and adequate statistical analysis. The study must meet the bioethical aspects of research. Meta-analytical studies and epidemiological studies are included in the category of research articles. (2) Review. A review article is a literature review that is comprehensive, critical-analytical, provides current information on a topic, or contains forward-looking views on a problem. The review article must provide the latest information from previous studies, convey the author's analysis and critical study of the collection of facts or data, and conclude it into an acceptable view or one that will be used for future development. (3) Case Study: A case study article is a report of an incident or case in the clinical, pathological or other fields which is deemed necessary to be published but is not sufficient to be written in the form of a research paper. Case study articles are preferred that provide new information or additional contributions to the existing literature. (4) Brief Communication: A short communication article, like a case study, is an article about an idea or research result that is relatively new but does not qualify for a full research article. Short communication articles are prioritized that contain the latest information and are useful for the development or application of a science.
