Main Text


In  this  the  problem  set  out  to  be  resolved  must  be  mentioned, the theoretical framework on which it is based, if relevant, pevious  publications,  the  current  situation  and  the  importance  or  implications  that  the  solution has  for  the  study  subjects  and/or  the  health  system,  and  it  must  end  with  statement  of  the objectives  and/or  hypothesis.  It  will  be  as  brief  as  possible,  and  its  basic  rule  is  to  provide  the  basic  information  necessary  for  the  reader  to  be  able  to understand the text that follows later. All of this supported with the most current and important literature references. State the specific purpose or research objective of, or hypothesis tested by, the study or observation. Cite only directly pertinent references, and do not include data or conclusion from the work being reported.


An exhaustive description must be provided on how the study has been performed, with sufficient information so that other researchers can replicate it; that is, that they can perform it without consulting the authors. Its content will be determined by the objectives of the study. It will contain several subsections that do not need to be specified in the text:

1. Design: The type of study performed must be mentioned, justifying, if necessary, the reasons for its choice.

2. Population and Study Setting: Indicate the place and the date of performing the study. Specify the characteristics of the studied population and the inclusion and exclusion criteria. If all the population has not been studied, it must indicate how the sample size was calculated and the value of the parameters used, as well as the sampling technique.

3. Variables: Define all the variables that have been collected, determined by the objectives established, particularly the variables of the most important results. If it is an experimental study, it must mention the intervention made (also of the control group, if relevant and the follow-up time.

4. Data collection: Explain how the data have been collected and who did it, as well as the tools used for this purpose, indicating if they are validated and the corresponding literature reference.

5. Data Analysis: Mention the statistics program used for the analysis and the analysis performed. Indicate the strategy used for the literature review, that is, data bases reviewed, the descriptors or keywords employed in the search and the years reviewed.

6. Ethical Aspects: It must be specified, in the case of research studies, whether it has been approved by the corresponding Ethics Committee, and whether it complies with the requirement established in national and international guidelines for clinical trials and similar studies as applicable.


Present your result in logical sequence in the text, tables and figures, giving the main or most important finding first. It must only include the most important results, according to the objectives and the statistical analysis mentioned in the Method section. The results must respond exactly to the objectives that have been established and must make clear whether or not they certify the working hypothesis. There should not be any objective in the introduction that is not given a response in the results and any objective not mentioned in the introduction should not have a response in the results. Assessments or comments on the results obtained should also not be included in this section.In general, it should start with a description of the study subjects, to specifically know the number studied and their characteristics. If, subjects have been lost during the study, or it has not been able to contact, with the total of the sample selected, it must also indicate both the number and the reason. After the description of the subjects, a descriptive analysis of the most important variables will be presented, according to the measurement scale, and the most suitable manner to describe them will be chosen, attempting to provide the best information about each one (thus, frequencies and percentages will be used for the nominal qualitative variables, and for the quantitative ones, mean and standard deviation when they follow a normal distribution, etc.). The corresponding confidence intervals will also be indicated.

If there is more than one study group, each one must be characterized, and later indicate the comparisons between these groups in terms of statistical significance an magnitude of the difference and, above all, in terms of clinical relevance. Statistical tests that have not been described in the Method section must not be employed, and their results must be accompanied by a statistical value, degrees of freedom and statistical significance (P value), and the confidence interval (where appropriate). To indicate the P value, it is advisable not to use more than 3 decimals (P=.002); thus, a value of P=.000001 may be expressed as P<.001. Tables and/or Figures can be used to complement the information, not to duplicate it. Do not repeat all the data in the table or figure in the text. The Tables and Figures must be sufficiently clear to be able to interpret them with the need to refer to the text. If abbreviations or initials are used, they must be explained in the Table or Figure footnotes.

Separate reporting of data by demographic variables, such as age and sex, facilitating pooling of data for subgroups across studies and should be routine, unless there are compelling reasons not to stratify reporting, which should be explained.


It is useful to begin the discussion by briefly summarizing the main findings, and explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings. Emphasize the new and important aspects of your study and put your findings in the context of the totality of the relevant evidence. In this section, the authors must express their opinions on study topic and the results obtained, avoiding repetition of the information that has been given in the Results or in the Introduction. Comparison should be made with the results obtained in other studies, with the corresponding literature references. Mention should be made of the possible limitations of the study that could determine the interpretation of the results. State the implications of your findings for future research and for clinical practice or policy.


Link the conclusions with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not adequately supported by the data. In particular, distinguish between clinical and statistical significance, and avoid making statements on economic benefits and costs unless the manuscript includes the appropriate economic data and analyses. Avoid claiming priority or alluding to work that has not been completed. State new hypotheses when warranted, but label them clearly. The conclusions and the appropriate recommendations will be reflected, as well as suggestions for future studies on the topic and the implications that it has for the practice

Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest should be transparent as detail as possible as provided in the ICMJE form as a standardized authors’ disclosures. Financial and personal relationships are easily identifiable that might bias or be seen to bias the work. Funding sources for the work should be described specifically with explanations of the role of those sources and the authors should declare that the supporting sources had no involvement in specific role. The authors should declare that the authors had access to all the study and the sponsors did not intervene the data or the work. Each author should submit a separate form from ICMJE.


Personal acknowledgments should be limited to appropriate professionals who contributed to the paper, including technical help and financial or material support, also general support by a department chairperson.

Funding Sources

Funding sources for the work should be described specifically with explanations of the role of those sources and the authors should declare that the supporting sources had no involvement into nor influence on the content of the manuscript. This statement should be written separately and limited to the funding for the work. If funder(s) had any impact into or influence on the design; data collection, management, analysis and interpretation of the data, the preparation, review, or approval of the manuscript or the decision to submit the manuscript for publication, their role must be disclosed in detail.

Preparation of Tables and Figures

Table and figure titles are written with a number followed by full stop and the title of the narrative is 9pt in size and bold. Capital letters are used only at the beginning of sentence title while abbreviations are in capital letters. The explanation is written with initial capital letters, size 8 pt, and bold. The source is written using 8 pt in size, right under the table before the caption and italicized. The table is written without cell border. The border is only used in the column headings and the end of the table. In inserting picture, symbols must be written and placed properly, and described in the caption. Picture in the form of a graph is made without displaying horizontal and vertical lines. Chart presentation should clearly include include the title and the units on the vertical and horizontal axis.

It is expected that all cited references will have been read by the authors. The references must contain only the authors cited in the text, be numbered in Arabic numerals and consecutively as they are cited. Bibliographical entries in the text should be quoted using superscripted Arabic numerals. References first cited in a table or figure legend should be numbered so that they will be in sequence with references cited in the text taking into consideration the point where the table or figure is first mentioned. Therefore, those references should not be listed at the end of the reference section but consecutively as they are cited.
References must be set out in the standard format approved by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (
Each entry must specify the author’s surname and initials (list all authors when there are six or fewer; when there are seven or more, list only the first six and then “et al.”), the article’s original title, the name of the Journal (according to the abbreviations used by MEDLINE/PubMed), the year of publication, the volume number and the number of the first and last pages. When citing references, please follow the rules for international standard punctuation carefully.
