Scope and Policy
International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology (IAORL) is an international peer-reviewed journal dedicated to otolaryngology–head and neck surgery, audiology, and speech therapy.
IAORL 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 from now on we will 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 (http://www.icmje.org/). The identification number should be given at the end of the abstract.
IAORL 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 IAORL is a prerequisite of publication. All authors must sign a copyright transfer form.
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.

All manuscripts should be submitted at http://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.
The journal strongly recommends that the authors submit their electronic manuscripts written in Microsoft Word. In the “Preparing Manuscript” step a screen that simulates the word processor will be displayed, where it is possible to “copy and paste”, including tables.
