Author Guidelines

Please register into the online submission system and submit your article. You can also use AUTHORS’ HELP to know how you can submit your manuscript using our submission system. While registering, please do not forget to check the box provided to define your role as an author. If you are inclined to serve as a reviewer to the journal, you may also would like to check the relevant box. All manuscript submissions should be done based on JECNS standards. 

JECNS accepts all types of articles encompassing original research articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, and letters to editor. All uploaded files should be in docx 2007 format. Original reseach manuscript with a clinical trail design should consider Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) and be registered; a registration number, thus, should appear in the manuscript. A cover letter, conveying that the submitted material is original research and has not been submitted elsewhere while under review by JECNS, is required. This could be added into the "Comments for the Editor” box over the submission process. The cover letter should also show that all the authors have seen and approved the submitted manuscript. In the cover letter, three potential reviewers should be introcuded by the authors (reviewers' information including their names, emails, and afflilation should be mentioned). The uploaded manuscript file should be blinded and no author names or affiliations or reference leading to disclosure of the author names should be included inside the manuscript file. Authors' information should be romoved from the main manuscript file and appear in a title page file, which should be uploaded as a supplementary file. All tables and figuers should appear at the end of the main manuscript file; however, authors may would like to determine places in the manuscript where tables and figures can be shown.

Submissions should be made by one of the authors of the manuscript; this, however, cannot be done on behalf of the authors. In the manuscript, the authors should declare that there is no conflict of interest regarding their manuscript. Although the journal covers the publication costs, a small publication fee may be applied to manuscripts accepted for publication. Currently, JECNS provides a grant to publish articles free of charge.

A structerd abstract (with a maximum of 300 words) including objective, material and methods, results, and conclusion shoud be provided within a manuscript. Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) should be used for selection of keywords. The manuscript content should also include introduction, material and methods, results, and discussion sections. 

Citations within the text of a paper are identified with a number in square brackets. Example: [1]

References are numbered consecutively in the order they are first used in the text. The full citations will be included in the Reference List at the end of your document, with matching numbers identifying each reference. If there are seven or more authors, list the first six authors and abbreviate with "et al". Examples:
