Instructions to Authors

 

AUTISM RESEARCH welcomes the submission of your manuscript. Please follow these instructions carefully. Failure to do so will delay the processing of your manuscript. Submitted papers that do not conform to the descriptions below of types of manuscripts will be returned to the communicating author.

 

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE

 

AUTISM RESEARCH will cover research related to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and closely related neurodevelopmental disorders. The Journal focuses on basic genetic, neurobiological and psychological mechanisms and how these influence developmental processes in ASD. The Journal encourages the submission of research articles that take a developmental approach to the biology and psychology of autism, with a particular emphasis on identifying underlying mechanisms and integrating across different levels of analysis. Individuals included in research studies can span the full spectrum of ASD, including the broader phenotype, and there are no restrictions on study participants in terms of age or intellectual ability. The Journal also encourages papers reporting work on animals or cell or other model systems that are directly relevant to a greater understanding of ASD. The journal will also publish reports of carefully conducted clinical trials of treatments for the core symptoms or one of the common co-morbid symptoms of ASD. Papers reporting clinical trials will be judged, in part, on whether there is an empirical justification for using the treatment that is reported.

 

It is increasingly clear that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has an incredibly complex genetic architecture. Beyond genetics, there are myriad environmental factors that may contribute to the etiology(ies) of ASD. And more and more evidence indicates that both the biological and behavioral characteristics of ASD may be different in males and females. This leads to the inevitable conclusion that there will be multiple etiologies of ASD with different patterns of biological and behavioral features. One way to cope with this heterogeneity is to insure that studies have adequate sample size. An adequate sample size may very depending on the type of research that is conducted. However, Autism Research encourages the submission of research utilizing larger sample sizes. When studies with modest samples are submitted, due to paradigm or other constraints, the journal encourages authors to discuss the research constraints that led to the smaller sample. The journal also requests that authors briefly, but explicitly, discuss how the smaller sample size may limit the interpretation of research results as reliable estimates of the characteristics of the population of people affected by ASD. Finally, authors are requested to describe whether the mixture of males and females in their study are based on convenience or on thoughtful scientific design. Reviewers will be instructed to take this issue into consideration when they judge the priority of a paper for publication.

 

TYPES OF MANUSCRIPTS CONSIDERED FOR PUBLICATION

 

**Please Note: Word Limits Do Not Include Abstracts and References, Only the Main Body of the Text**

 

Research Article . Submissions of original research articles of broad interest and potential for high impact are encouraged. The text of these articles should include an Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results and a Discussion. Research articles should be a maximum of 5,000 words in length. If there are extenuating circumstances that would require an author to extend the length of an article, please contact the editorial office with specific details and rationale for the Editor-in-Chief’s consideration.

 

Short Reports. These are research articles that report a well-conducted preliminary study or a novel finding of high potential impact. Typically these articles should not exceed 2,000 words. The text of these manuscripts should be organized appropriately.

 

Review. Review articles are generally invited. However, authors are encouraged to contact the Editor-in-Chief if they are interested in preparing a review on a timely topic that has not recently been covered by the journal. Reviews are of two types: Comprehensive reviews of up to 8,000 words and "101" type reviews that are generally on the order of 2500 words. The "101" type reviews provide a succinct summary of a topic or technique to educate the readership of Autism Research and INSAR. Authors interested in developing a Review Article of either type should contact the Editor-In-Chief for more information concerning manuscript preparation.

 

Commentary: These are short articles (1500 - 3,000 words in length) that are intended to 1) draw attention to developments or needs in a specific area of research, 2) bring together observations that point the field in a new direction, 3) give the authors’ personal views on a controversial topic, or 4) direct well-reasoned and substantive criticism of some widely held theoretical view or widely used technique or practice. Commentaries may also provide an historical perspective on an area of autism research. Authors should make their Commentary understandable to a broad readership. Potential authors are invited to submit a letter of interest to the Editor-in-Chief indicating the topic of a potential Commentary. The letter should also contain an outline of the contents and a brief statement on why it is a good time to review the topic in question. Commentaries will not be accepted for editorial processing unless pre-approved for submission.

 

EDITORIAL POLICIES

 

Authors should carefully review and implement these instructions. Manuscripts will be returned that do not substantially conform to specifications. If questions remain, authors may contact the Editorial Receiving Office for guidance (rdipshan@wiley.com). When necessary, the editorial staff can refer unanswered questions to the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editors. Electronic mail is preferred for editorial correspondence. Authors who submit to the Journal may also be asked to make themselves available for an interview should the editorial team wish to highlight the author’s work in a podcast.

 

Submission policy: Manuscripts should be submitted solely to AUTISM RESEARCH and may not have been published, or be under consideration for publication, in any substantial form in another periodical—professional or lay. If there is a related paper under consideration at another journal, a copy of that paper should be submitted with the primary manuscript as supporting information.

 

Ethical compliance: If applicable, the editorial office should receive assurance that work performed on human and animal subjects complies with standards established by an appropriate ethics review committee (IRB or IACUC in the United States) and the granting agency. If the manuscript includes data or description of humans, the authors must provide either of these two assurances: (1) a statement in the manuscript that the research was prospectively reviewed and approved by a duly constituted ethics committee or (2) a statement in the cover letter to the editor that the manuscript is a retrospective case report that does not require ethics committee approval at that institution. Any other situations not covered by these two scenarios should be discussed with the Editor-in-Chief. Similar assurances should be provided in the manuscript that institutional approval has been obtained for any animal research that is reported.

 

Conflict of Interest Disclosure: AUTISM RESEARCH requires that all authors disclose any potential sources of conflict of interest. Any interest or relationship, financial or otherwise, that might be perceived as influencing an author’s objectivity is considered a potential source of conflict of interest. These must be disclosed when directly relevant or indirectly related to the work that the authors describe in their manuscript. Potential sources of conflict of interest include, but are not limited to, patent or stock ownership, membership on a company board of directors, membership on an advisory board or committee for a company, and consultancy for, or receipt of speaker’s fees from, a company. The existence of a conflict of interest does not preclude publication in this journal. If the authors have no conflict of interest to declare, they must also state this within the submitted manuscript.

 

It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to review this policy with all authors and to collectively list in the cover letter to the Editor-in-Chief, in the manuscript (under the Acknowledgment section), and in the online submission system ALL pertinent commercial and other relationships.

 

SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS

 

Cover letter: Authors must submit a cover letter, in a separate file, stating that all contributors have read and approved the submission to AUTISM RESEARCH.

All submissions are required to be made online at the AUTISM RESEARCH Manuscript Central site ( http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/autismresearch ). If you are submitting for the first time, and you do not have an existing account, create a new account. You will be asked to assign keywords to your profile. Returning users should check for an existing account.

 

 

Once you are logged onto the site, submission should be made via the Author Center page. Submit your manuscript and all figures as separate files. You do not need to mail any paper copies of your manuscript. You will be required to submit suggested reviewers, however, the editorial office reserves the right to not use these suggested reviewers. At the end of a successful submission, a confirmation screen with manuscript number will appear and you will receive an e-mail confirming that the manuscript has been received by the journal. If you do not receive this mail, please check your submission and/or contact tech support at E-mail: support@scholarone.com.

 

 

AUTISM RESEARCH welcomes submissions from the international autism research community. However, only manuscripts written in acceptable English will be considered. If the author does not have English-writing skills equivalent to that of a native English speaker, the manuscript should be appropriately edited prior to submission to avoid rejection based on unacceptable writing. For help with language editing, please visit Wiley's English Editing services: http://wileyeditingservices.com/en/.

 

Manuscripts should be as concise as possible, and all authors must approve submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts must be original and must not have been published previously either in whole or in part, except in abstract form, and must not be under consideration by any other journal. Manuscripts should include all relevant detail concerning subjects and procedures (e.g. medication status of participants). When there is doubt, authors should err on the side of completeness.

 

Revisions : We strive for speedy review and rapid publication of accepted papers. To be considered as a revised manuscript rather than as a new manuscript requiring full review, manuscripts requiring revisions must be resubmitted within sixty days (for minor revisions) and ninety days (for major revisions) of the decision date. If an author anticipates the need for a longer period of time, please contact the Editor-in-Chief.
