Instructions for authors

 

Scope

The Journal will publish reports of multiple congenital anomaly syndromes and original studies and review articles on the aetiology, clinical delineation, genetic mapping and molecular embryology of birth defects. The Journal considers the following:

 

Reviews that discuss aetiology, syndrome classification, heterogeneity, natural history and adult phenotypes.

Original Articles. These can be of three types: a) syndrome reports - these should include several cases or a whole family and include detailed clinical reports, appropriate measurements and results of investigations. Reports of single cases should go in the short report format; b) on molecular genetic topics; c) on cytogenetic aberrations.

Short case reports. These reports should include a list of key features, summary, investigations with relevant images and tables, a brief discussion, and references. Brief or single case reports can be submitted as this article type.

Correspondence: relating to previously published papers.

Conference/meeting reports and abstracts.

Submitted articles undergo a preliminary review by the editor. Some articles may be returned to authors without further consideration. Those being considered for publication will undergo further assessment and peer-review by the editor and those invited to do so from the board and reviewer pool.

 

Points to consider before submission

Please think carefully about the following points and make the appropriate declarations.

 

Redundant or duplicate publication

We ask you to confirm that your paper has not been published in its current form or a substantially similar form (in print or electronically, including on a web site), that it has not been accepted for publication elsewhere, and that it is not under consideration by another publication. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors has provided details of what is and what is not duplicate or redundant publication (www.icmje.org). If you are in doubt (particularly in the case of material that you have posted on a web site), we ask you to proceed with your submission but to include a copy of the relevant previously published work or work under consideration by other journals. In your covering letter to the editors, draw attention to any published work that concerns the same patients or subjects as the present paper.

 

Conflicts of interest

Authors must state all possible conflicts of interest in the manuscript, including financial, consultant, institutional and other relationships that might lead to bias or a conflict of interest. If there is no conflict of interest, this should also be explicitly stated as none declared. All sources of funding should be acknowledged in the manuscript. All relevant conflicts of interest and sources of funding should be included on the title page of the manuscript with the heading “Conflicts of Interest and Source of Funding:”. For example:

 

Conflicts of Interest and Source of Funding: A has received honoraria from Company Z. B is currently receiving a grant (#12345) from Organization Y, and is on the speaker’s bureau for Organization X – the CME organizers for Company A. For the remaining authors none were declared.

 

Copyright Transfer Form:

In addition, each author must complete and submit the journal's copyright transfer agreement, which includes a section on the disclosure of potential conflicts of interest based on the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, "Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals" (www.icmje.org/update.html).

 

A copy of the form is made available to the submitting author within the Editorial Manager submission process. Co-authors will automatically receive an Email with instructions on completing the form upon submission.

 

Permissions to reproduce previously published material

We ask you to send us copies of permission to reproduce material (such as illustrations) from the copyright holder. We cannot send your paper to press without these permissions!

 

Patient consent forms

The protection of a patient's right to privacy is essential. We ask you to send copies of patient or guardian consent forms on which patients or other subjects of your experiments clearly grant permission for the publication of photographs or other material that might identify them. If the consent form for your research did not specifically include this, please obtain it or remove the identifying material. A sample patient consent form is available from the Journal’s website if required.

 

Ethics committee approval

You must state clearly in your submission in the Methods section that you conducted studies on human participants must with the approval of an appropriate named ethics committee. Please also look at the latest version of the Declaration of Helsinki. Similarly, you must confirm that experiments involving animals adhered to ethical standards and must state the care of animal and licensing guidelines under which the study was performed.

 

Authorship

We ask all authors to confirm that they have read and approved the paper. Second, we ask all authors to confirm that they have met the criteria for authorship as established by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, believe that the paper represents honest work, and are able to verify the validity of the results reported.

 

Open access

Authors of accepted peer-reviewed articles have the choice to pay a fee to allow perpetual unrestricted online access to their published article to readers globally, immediately upon publication. Authors may take advantage of the open access option at the point of acceptance to ensure that this choice has no influence on the peer review and acceptance process. These articles are subject to the journal's standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.

 

The article processing charge (APC) is charged on acceptance of the article and should be paid within 30 days by the author, funding agency or institution. Payment must be processed for the article to be published open access. For a list of journals and pricing please visit our Wolters Kluwer Open Health Journals page.

 

Authors retain copyright

Authors retain their copyright for all articles they opt to publish open access. Authors grant Wolters Kluwer an exclusive license to publish the article and the article is made available under the terms of a Creative Commons user license. Please visit our Open Access Publication Process page for more information.

Copyright assignment

Papers are accepted for publication on the understanding that exclusive copyright in the paper is assigned to the Publisher. Authors are asked to submit a signed copyright assignment form with their paper. They may use material from their paper in other works published by them after seeking formal permission.

 

Submissions

Authors are required to submit their manuscripts through the web-based tracking system at http://cd.edmgr.com. Signed forms may be included in the submission or mailed to the journal office. The site contains instructions and advice on how to use the system. Authors should NOT in addition then post a hard copy submission to the editorial office, unless you are supplying artwork, letters or files that cannot be submitted electronically, or have been instructed to do so by the editorial office. Include the following where appropriate: subject consent forms; transfer of copyright form; permission to reproduce previously published material. For those authors who have no option but to submit by mail please send one copy of the article, plus an electronic version on disk or CD-ROM to the following address: Professor Dian Donnai, Department of Clinical Genetics, St. Mary's Hospital, Hathersage Road, Manchester M13 0JH, UK.

Double spacing should be used throughout the manuscript, which should include the following sections, each starting on a separate page: Title Page, abstract and keywords, text, acknowledgements, references, individual tables and captions. Margins should be not less than 3 cm. Pages should be numbered consecutively, beginning with the Title Page, and the page number should be placed in the top right hand corner of each page. Abbreviations should be defined on their first appearance in the text; those not accepted by international bodies should be avoided.

 

Presentation of papers

 

Title Page

The Title Page should carry the full title of the paper and a short title to be used as a ‘running head’ (and which should be so identified). The first name, middle initial and last name of each author should appear. If the work is to be attributed to a department or institution, its full name should be included. Any disclaimers should appear on the Title Page, as should the name and address of the author responsible for correspondence concerning the manuscript and the name and address of the author to whom requests for reprints should be made. Finally, the Title Page should include the sources of any support for the work in the form of grants, equipment, drugs, or any combination of these. Disclose funding received for this work from any of the following organizations: National Institutes of Health (NIH); Wellcome Trust; Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI); and other(s).

 

Abstracts

The second page should carry a structured abstract (except for Short Case Reports and Correspondence) of no more than 100-200 words. The abstract should state the Objective(s) of the study or investigation, basic Methods (selection of study subjects or laboratory animals; observational and analytical methods), main Results (giving specific data and their statistical significance, if possible), and the principal Conclusions. It should emphasise new and important aspects of the study or observations.

 

Keywords

The abstract should be followed by a list of 3–10 keywords or short phrases which will assist the cross-indexing of the article and which may be published. When possible, the terms used should be from the Medical Subject Headings list of the National Library of Medicine (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html).

 

Text

Full papers of an experimental or observational nature may be divided into sections headed Introduction, Methods (including ethical and statistical information), Results and Discussion (including a conclusion), although reviews may require a different format.

 

Short reports should include a list of the key features (maximum 8), short clinical summary (200-300 words), investigations (withno more than four figures or tables), discussion (200-300 words) and five to ten references. For the key features and summary, authors should refer to the terminology for dysmorphic features documented in the publications on Elements of Morphology (see Am J Med Genet A 2009;149A:2-5 by Allanson et al.) For those terms which are not covered within this series of publications, terminology used in one of the recognised dysmorphology databases should be used. The short report format is suitable for case reports of single patients with new and distinctive features or of patients with known syndromes with new features. Novel cytogenetic or molecular genetic observations in single patients may also be suitable for publication as short reports.

 

Correspondence should contain no more than a Title Page plus key words, two pages of double-spaced text with no subheadings, 2 illustrations with legends; and 6 references.

 

Acknowledgements

Acknowledgements should be made only to those who have made a substantial contribution to the study. Authors are responsible for obtaining written permission from people acknowledged by name in case readers infer their endorsement of data and conclusions.

 

References

The Harvard System is used. References in the text should be quoted in the following manner: (Jones, 1988) or (Brusilow and Horwich, 1989) or if there are more than two authors, (Silengo et al., 1980). Multiple papers referred to together in the text should be given in chronological order.

 

The references should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. Journal names should be abbreviated as in MEDLINE (NLM Catalog, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nlmcatalog).

 

The layout should be as follows:

Personal communications and unpublished work should not feature in the reference list but should appear in parentheses in the text. Unpublished work accepted for publication but not yet released should be included in the reference list with the words ‘in press’ in parentheses beside the name of the journal concerned. References must be verified by the author(s) against the original documents.

 

Tables

Each table should be typed on a separate sheet in double spacing. Tables should not be submitted as photographs. Each table should be assigned an Arabic numeral, e.g. (Table 3) and a brief title. Vertical rules should not be used. Place explanatory matter in footnotes, not in the heading. Explain in footnotes all non-standard abbreviations that are used in each table. Identify statistical measures of variations, such as standard deviation and standard error of the mean.

 

Be sure that each table is cited in the text. If you use data from another published or unpublished source, obtain permission and acknowledge the source fully.
