Manuscript Preparation Guidelines

Manuscripts should be submitted as a Microsoft Word document file. The text should be double-spaced and ragged right (not right justified) throughout (including tables, references, and figure captions). Sequential page numbering should begin with the abstract. Do not insert any section breaks within the document. To facilitate peer review, please add line numbers to the document.

To ensure blinded peer-review, no direct references to the author(s) or institution of origin should be made anywhere in the text, acknowledgments, tables, figure captions, or figures.

TSICR follows the American Medical Association (AMA) Manual of Style, 10th ed. Include the name and location (city and state in USA; city and country outside USA) of the manufacturer of any drug, supply, or equipment mentioned in the manuscript. Laboratory slang and clinical jargon should be avoided. Keep unique abbreviations to a minimum. Spell out the full term for each abbreviation at first use in the text unless it is a standard unit of measure.
