    Instruction for Review Article
  • 1. A Review Article is an authoritative, balanced survey of recent developments in a research field. Although Review Articles should be recognized as scholarly by specialists in the field, they should be written with a view to informing non specialist readers. Hence, Review Articles should be presented using simple prose, avoiding excessive jargon and technical detail. Their scope should be broad enough that it is not dominated by the work of a single research institution or by the authors' own work.
    2. Review Articles are 4,000–6,000 words long and include necessary display items (figures, tables and/or boxes). As a guideline, up to 200 references are allowed. Footnotes are not used. The maximum length of the title is 130 characters, including spaces.
    3. The Abstract is limited to 300 words and is unstructured. The graphical abstract should summarize the contents of the article in a concise, pictorial form designed to capture the attention of a wide readership.
    4. The Body should consist of a comprehensive, objective, and critical overview that is based almost exclusively on information that has been published in peer-reviewed reports. Authors are expected to present all sides of controversial issues in an even-handed manner.
    5. Supplementary information sections include Author contributions, Financial support, Acknowledgement, Conflicts of interests statement, and Data sharing statement.
    6. References should be ordered according to citations numbers first appearing in the main text, tables and figure captions, in this order. References to the literature are cited by superscript number at appropriate locations in the text. All literature citations are compiled in a numbered References list at the end of the manuscript text, in the order of their first citation in the text. Each numbered reference may contain only one literature citation.

    References must list all the authors. Titles of journals are abbreviated according to NLM Catalog (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nlmcatalog/journals). Papers accepted for publication are cited as “in press”; the DOI should be given if the paper is published online. Cite papers that are in preparation or have been submitted but not yet accepted in the text, not in the References list, as unpublished experiments or personal communications.
