MATERIALS AND METHODS

Describe the selection of the observational or experimental subjects (patients or laboratory animals, including controls) clearly. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Give references to established methods, including statistical methods; provide references and brief descriptions for methods that have been published but are not well known; describe new or substantially modified methods, give reasons for using them, and evaluate their limitations. Identify precisely all drugs and chemicals used, including generic name(s), dose(s), and route(s) of administration.

Reports of randomized clinical trials should present information on all major study elements, including the protocol, assignment of interventions (methods of randomization, concealment of allocation to treatment groups), and the method of masking (blinding), based on the CONSORT statement (Moher D, Schulz KF, Altman DG: The CONSORT Statement: Revised Recommendations for Improving the Quality of Reports of Parallel-Group Randomized Trials. available at http://www.consort-statement.org/).Authors submitting review manuscripts should include a section describing the methods used for locating, selecting, extracting, and synthesizing data.

Do not use patient's name, initials, or hospital numbers, especially in illustrative material. When reporting experiments on animals, indicate whether the institutions or a national research council's guide for, or any national law on the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.

SCOPE OF JOURNAL

International Journal of Dental and Medical Specialty is an open access journal semi-annually published journal. This journal publishes manuscript related to its readership from all the specialties of Medicine and Dentistry.

RESULTS AND STATS

Present the results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and illustrations. Do not repeat in the text all the data in the tables or illustrations; emphasize or summaries only important observations.

When possible, quantify verdicts and give them with relevant symbols of measurement error or preferentially (such as reliance intervals). Report losses to observation (such as dropouts from a clinical trial). Insert a common description of material and methods in the Methods section. When data are organized in the Results section, describe the statistical methods which were used to analyze and interpret them. Bypass non-technical applications of technical terms in statistics, such as 'random' (which implies a randomizing device), 'standard,' 'significant,' 'correlations', and 'sample.' Define statistical terms, abbreviations, and most symbols. Use upper italics (P < 0.05).

DISCUSSION

Include in the Discussion section significance of results and the implications of the findings and their limitations, including implications for future research. Relate the observations to other relevant studies. In particular, contributors should avoid making statements on economic benefits and costs unless their manuscript includes economic data and analyses. Avoid claiming priority and alluding to work that has not been completed. State new hypotheses when warranted, but clearly label them as such. Recommendations, when appropriate, may be included.
