Instructions to Authors

 

Scope and Policy

 

International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology (IAO) is an international peer-reviewed journal dedicated to otolaryngology– head and neck surgery, audiology, and speech therapy. IAO is published every three months and supports the World Health Organization (WHO) and of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) politics regarding registration of clinical trials. Therefore we only accept for publication articles of clinical trials that have been given a number of identification from one of the Clinical Essay Registry validated by the criteria established by the WHO and the ICMJE, the links to which are available at the ICMJE. The identification number should be given at the end of the abstract. IAO reserves the right to exclusive publication of all accepted manuscripts. We will not consider any manuscript previously published nor under review by another publication. Once accepted for review, the manuscript must not be submitted elsewhere. Transfer of copyright to IAO is a prerequisite of publication. All authors must sign a copyright transfer form. The editors and Thieme combat plagiarism, double publication, and scientific misconduct with the software CrossCheck powered by iThenticate. Your manuscript may be subject to an investigation and retraction if plagiarism is suspected. All submissions follows double blind peer-review process. Manuscripts can be submitted free of charge (no APCs) through IAO's online submission website. Authors must disclose any financial relationship(s) at the time of submission, and any disclosures must be updated by the authors prior to publication. Information that could be perceived as potential conflict(s) of interest must be stated. This information includes, but is not limited to, grants or funding, employment, affiliations, patents, inventions, honoraria, consultancies, royalties, stock options/ownership, or expert testimony.

Peer Reviewing Process

The journal follows double blind peer-review process where author does not get to know the identity of the reviewer and the reviewer does not get to know the identity of the author. At least two random reviewers based on their technical and clinical expertise are assigned by the Chief Editor on each manuscript and the decision is taken based on the comparative reviews which the manuscript receives during the review process.

Article Categories

The journal publishes the types of articles defined below. When submitting your manuscript, please follow the instructions relevant to the applicable article category.

Original Research

Original, in-depth, clinical or basic science investigations that aim to change clinical practice or the understanding of a disease process. Article types include, but are not limited to, clinical trials, before-and-after studies, cohort studies, case-control studies, cross-sectional surveys, and diagnostic test assessments.

Components of original research are:

  • A title page, including the manuscript title and all authors’ full names, academic degrees (no more than three), institutional affiliations, locations, and ORCID iD. Designate one author as the corresponding author. Also indicate where the paper was presented, if applicable.
  • A structured abstract of up to 250 words with the headings: Introduction, Objective, Methods, Results, and Conclusion.

Systematic Reviews (including Meta-analyses)

Critical assessments of literature and data sources on important clinical topics in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. Systematic reviews that reduce bias with explicit procedures to select, appraise, and analyze studies are highly preferred over traditional narrative reviews. The review may include a meta-analysis, or statistical synthesis of data from separate, but similar, studies leading to a quantitative summary of the pooled results. The components of a systematic review are:

  • A title page, including the manuscript title and all authors’ full names, academic degrees, institutional affiliations, locations, and ORCID iD. Designate one author as the corresponding author. Also indicate where the paper was presented, if applicable.

Figures

Figures must be uploaded separately. Include the number of the figure in the description box.

Figure Legends

Provide a legend for each figure. List the legends (doublespaced) on a separate text page, after the reference page. Up to 8 pictures will be published at no cost to the authors; color pictures will be published at the editor’s discretion.

Acceptable submissions include the following: JPG, GIF, PNG, PSD, or TIF. The Publication Management System accepts only high definition images with the following features:

Online Manuscript Submission

All manuscripts should be submitted free of charge at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/iaorl, which gives access to the ScholarOne Manuscripts submission system where the submission of the article is done by the authors and the evaluation process is done by the reviewers of our editorial board in a blinded process where the names of the authors are not displayed in any instance. The system will ask for your user ID and password if you have already registered. If you have not registered, click on the link “Create Account” and make your registration. In case you have forgotten your password, click on the appropriate link and the system will generate an automatic e-mail with the information. The author(s) should keep a copy of all submitted material for publication because the editor cannot be held responsible for any lost material. After submission, the system offers the option of saving a copy of your manuscript in PDF format for your control. The journal strongly recommends that the authors submit their electronic manuscripts written in Microsoft Word.

POLICY STATEMENTS

Privacy Statement

The names and email addresses entered in this journal site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.

Ethics standards

No data or image identifying a patient can be used without formal consent (patient permission forms are available at: www.thieme.com/journal-authors); studies using human beings or animal trials must follow ethical standards from the International Committee of Medical Journals Editors – ICMJE, as well as approval of original institution’s Ethics Committee; conflicts of interest must have a ICMJE form filled in by all authors; commercial marks should be avoided; authors are the sole responsible for opinions and concepts in the published articles, as well as for the reference accuracy.

Authorization Letter

The corresponding author should send a letter authorizing publication, signed by all coauthors, ensuring the uniqueness of the publication, ie, the article should not be posted on other news outlets, not be available online. Articles already published in other media should say when and where they were accepted for publication.

Conflict of Interest

Statement (if any): All authors (including corresponding and coauthors associated with the manuscript) must make a formal statement at the time of submission indicating any potential conflict of interest that might constitute an embarrassment to any of the authors if it were not to be declared and were to emerge after publication. Such conflicts might include, but are not limited to, shareholding in or receipt of a grant or consultancy fee from a company whose product features in the submitted manuscript or which manufactures a competing product. Should the article be accepted for publication, this information will be published with the paper.

Types of conflicts include: Consulting, Royalties, Research Support, Institutional Support, Ownership, Stock/Options, Speakers Bureau, and Fellowship Support. Any commercial entity whose products are described, reviewed, evaluated, or compared in the manuscript, except for those disclosed in the Acknowledgments section, are potential conflicts. This journal follows the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors and an ICMJE disclosure of potential conflicts of interest (COI) form must be submitted for each author at the time of manuscript submission. Forms must be submitted even if there is no confl ict of interest. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to ensure that all authors adhere to this policy prior to submission. A conflict of interest statement must also be included in the manuscript after any "Acknowledgements" and "Funding" sections and should summarize all a spects of any conflicts of interest included on the ICMJE form. If there is no conflict of interest, authors must include 'Conflict of Interest: none declared'. Please click https://www.icmje.org/disclosure-of-interest conflicts of interest to download a Conflict of Interest form. The disclosure information is important in article processing. If the provided forms are incomplete or missing, it can cause delays in publishing of article.

Informed Consent

The journal adheres to the principles set forth in the Helsinki Declaration and holds that all reported research conducted with human participants should be conducted in accordance with such principles. Reports describing data obtained from research conducted in human participants must contain a statement in the Methods section indicating approval by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). The authors should also indicate whether or not individual consent for the study was obtained, or whether it was waived.

Conflicts arising from papers authored by Editorial Board Members

The journal evaluates any submissions from the members of the editorial board purely on merit of the clinical content presented as it does for any other article coming from authors globally. All the articles including articles from Editorial Board members are evaluated via double-blind peer review process, which will ensure that the information of author(s) is not revealed to the reviewers. In doing so, the journal ensures there are no confl ict of interests or preferences and selection of articles is purely on its clinical content merit, thus ensuring best ethical standards and practices of peer-review are maintained.

Copyright Statement

Submitted manuscripts must represent original research not previously published nor being considered for publication elsewhere. The editors and Thieme combat plagiarism, double publication, and scientific misconduct with the software CrossCheck powered by iThenticate. Your manuscript may be subject to an investigation and retraction if plagiarism is suspected. If you plan to reproduce text, tables, or figures from a published source, you must first obtain written permission from the copyright holder (usually the Society). This is required even if the material is from your own published work. For material never before published and given to you by another person, you must obtain permission from that person. Serious delays to publication can be incurred if permissions are not obtained. As the author, it is your responsibility to obtain all permissions, pay any permission fees, furnish copies of permissions to Thieme with your manuscript, and include a credit line at the end of the fi gure caption, beneath the table, or in a text footnote.
