G u i d e l i n e s f o r a u t h o r s Authors must adhere to the following guidelines Informed consent Patients have a right to privacy that should not be violated without informed consent. Identifying information, including patients’ names, initials or hospital numbers, should not be provided in the manuscript or visual material unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) has given written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that an identi fiable patient be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should disclose to these patients whether any potential identifiable material might be available via the Internet as well as in print after publication. Nonessential identifying details should be omitted. Informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt that anonymity can be main- tained. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning. When informed consent has been obtained, it should be indicated in the manuscript. Human and animal rights When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Decla- ration of Helsinki of 1975, as revised in 2013 ( 10poli- cies/b3/index.html). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki, the authors must explain the rationale for their ap- proach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should indicate whether institutional and national standards for the care and use of laboratory animals were followed. Further guidance on animal research ethics is available from the International Association of Veterinary Editors’ Consensus Author Guidelines on Animal Ethics and Welfare ( ethics-and-welfare-for-editors). Preparing the manuscript text G e n e r a l The manuscript must be written in U.S. English. The main body of the text, excluding the title page, ab- stract and list of captions, but including the refer- ences, may be a maximum of 4,000 words. Excep- tions may be allowed with prior approval from the publisher. Authors will have the opportunity to add more infor- mation regarding their article, as well as post videos, present a webinar and blog on the DT Science web- site. It is preferred that there be no more than six authors. If more authors have participated in the study, the contribution of each author must be disclosed at the end of the document. T i t l e The title should not exceed 35 characters. Capitalize only the first word and proper nouns in the title. Please include a running title as well. A u t h o r i n f o r m a t i o n The following information must be included for each author: – Full author name(s) – Full affiliation (department, faculty, institution, town, country). For the corresponding author, the following infor - mation should be included in addition: – Full mailing address – Email address. A b s t r a c t a n d k e y w o r d s The manuscript must contain an abstract and a min- imum of 3, maximum of 6 keywords.

For case reports, the sections should be background, case pre- sentation, conclusion and keywords. S t r u c t u r e o f t h e m a i n t e x t The body of the manuscript must be structured as follows: – Introduction (no subheadings) – Materials and methods – Results – Discussion – Conclusion C o m p e t i n g i n t e r e s t s Authors are required to declare any competing financial or other interests regarding the article submitted.
