Manuscript Organization

Title page: The title page of the paper should only contain the ti‌tle, name(s), degree(s) and addresses (Tel, Fax, and Email) of the author(s). Main Text: The manuscript should include: Title, No au‌thor(s) name, the Ab‌stract, Introduction, Ma‌terials & Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Ac‌knowl‌edge‌ment and Ref‌erences.

 Abstract: Abstract is a concise summary of the whole paper. The abstract ( no more than 250 words) in structured for‌mat as Background, Materials and Methods, Results and Conclusion followed by 3 to 6 Keywords must be presented. Keywords should be placed in alphabetical order and, when possible, adjusted to the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) of Index Medicus (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/MBrowser.html). Introduction: The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Materials and Methods: Materials and methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address. Methods in general use need not be described in detail

Results: Results should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the authors' experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature. Discussion, speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the Results but should be put into the Discussion section.

Discussion: The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. The detailed data should not be repeated in the discussion again. Conclusion: State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. Acknowledgments: Besides personal acknowledgement, sources of financial support, etc should be mentioned in this section. Tables: All tables should be keyed in to the text. A short descriptive heading should be given above each table and any footnotes and explanations underneath. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Do not submit tables as pho‌tograph.

Figures: Must be numbered and keyed into the text. The cap‌tions should be placed below. The same data should not be presented in tables, fig‌ures and text, simultane‌ously. Abbreviations and Symbols: use only standard abbre‌viations. Avoid using them in the title and ab‌stract. The full term for which an abbre‌viation stands should precede its first use in the text unless it is a stan‌dard unit of measurement.

 References: The AMUJ has now adopted the Vancouver Reference System and all submitted manuscripts should be in this style. Cite references in text in order of appearance using Arabic numerals in parentheses for citations. Place the reference list at the end of the final text page. List all authors when six or fewer; when seven or more, list the first six and add “et al”. Use Index Medicus abbreviations for journals that are indexed; if a journal is not indexed, use full name. We recommend the use of a tool such as EndNote or Reference Manager for reference management and formatting.
