Manuscript Format

Title and Authorship Page

The following information should be included in the manuscript title page:

  • Cover letter;
  • Paper title;
  • Full name of authors including highest degrees and professional degrees;
  • Full institutional address of all authors (including ZIP code, if applicable);
  • Telephone number with area codes;  
  • E-mail addresses of all authors; and 
  • Email address of corresponding author indicated with an asterik*.


The manuscript should contain a structured abstract. The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free and should not exceed 300 words. Abstracts should have the following 5 sections: (1) Introduction, (2) Methods, (3) Results, (4) Discussion, (5) Conclusion and Implications for Translation. The different section of the manuscript should be numbered as outlined below. 

1. Introduction

This section provides an introduction and overview including what is known in the field. It should be succinct, with no subheadings. This is where you state what is known in the field and what is lacking using, if preferred the deficiency model in identifying gaps in current/prior research and practice. This is where you provide the statement of the problem followed by the objectives of your present study. This is where you make the argument why we should publish this paper.

2. Methods

This part should contain sufficient detail so that all procedures can be replicable by other researchers. Authors may divide this into subsections if several methods are described. The methodology should be precise but with sufficient detail to guide scientific replicability. It should not be laborious. If the method is well-known and described elsewhere, please refer your readers to those sources.

Ethical Review/Statement: Include information about the approval of the study stating which Institutional Review Board or Ethics Board approved the study or granted exception.

3. Results

This section may each be divided by subheadings or may be combined. It provides the findings of the study without discussions. Begin with the key findings and work down to the last finding. Please limit all numbers to two decimal places.

4. Discussions

The discussion section should be as concise as possible and should include a brief statement of the principal findings, a discussion of the validity of the observations, a discussion of the findings in light of other published work dealing with the same or closely related subjects, and a statement of the possible significance of the work. It should also include strengths and weaknesses of the paper and unanswered questions and future research. Extensive discussion of the literature is discouraged in this section.

5. Conclusions and Implications for Translation

This section should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work. It should summarize the overal key findings of the study. This should include the study limitations, including but not limited to the design, methods, or dataset used. 

Under this section should highlight the work’s importance and relevance to both medical research, practice and policy. This section should address the “so what?” question addressed by the paper. What is the contribution that this paper will make to the field--for both other researchers and practitioners? The authors should be bol;d and make the quantum leap which is at the center of this journal as a vehicle for translational medical research and public health. 

Key Words

Authors should provide a list of 3- 5 key words directly below the abstract. Key words should express the precise content of the manuscript, as they are used for indexing and search purposes.


Acknowledgement should be included at the end of the paper before the references. It should contain information about research support grants, fellowships, and presentations. This is a place to list contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship such as people who provided technical help or writing assistance. Also include here details of any organization that has made a contribution to your research such as funding organization. Authors are responsible for obtaining permissions from all the people acknowledged before putting their names in the manuscript.

Conflict of Interest

IJTMRPH maintains a disclosure policy which requires that all authors of manuscripts must declare any conflict of interest existing in the work on which their manuscripts were based. A competing interest exists when professional judgment concerning the validity of research is influenced by a secondary interest, such as financial gain. We require that our authors reveal all possible conflicts of interest in their submitted manuscripts.

The author(s) should state if they have any conflict of interests regarding the paper. If there is, please state clearly what the conflict(s) is or are.


The authors should state the funding source.


Authors are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. With the exception of review articles, references should be no more than 30. Authors should reference only the papers that they have read themselves and that are relevant to the manuscript.

References should follow the National Library of Medicine (NLM) approved format as recommended by the International Committee for Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) (i.e. the Vancouver reference style). For more information about the NLM and ICMJE referencing style, please review it here. However, IJTMRPH has made some modifications to the Vancouver style.

References should be numbered and according to the Modified Vancouver style. However, please list the journal titles in the reference list IN FULL (please do not abbreviate them). All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in superscript square brackets (e.g., “as discussed by Johnson; [9]” “as discussed elsewhere. [9, 10]”). All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed from the manuscript. Authors are strongly advised to review any of the papers published in the journal for sample of article preparation. The editors reserve the right to delete references during the review process. Note that punctuation marks come before the citation square brackets. Please minimize the use of internet references as these links in many occasions break and are no longer functional.

Please contact the editorial office before submitting any videos, photographs, or other images of study participants.


Editorial Principles and Compliance with ICMJE Recommendations

IJTMRPH adheres to the finest editorial principles to ensure that the work it publishes are accurate, timely, fair and conform to the best ethical principles of publication of scientific papers as outlined here and may be updated from time to time. We believe that principles like those outlined here provide clear and clarity and rigorous guidelines for best working practices in scientific publishing and for ensuring the integrity of the papers that we publish. We believe that these principles and policies will benefit our authors, editors and readers as we strive for a trustworthy, transparent and efficient publishing process.

IJTMRPH Editor-in-Chief is a member of the World Association of Medical Editors, a global nonprofit voluntary association of editors of peer-reviewed medical journals. This ensures that our editorial policies comply with the best and most-current practices in medical and scientific publishing.


Editors and reviewers are expected to treat articles they handle confidentially. Editors and reviewers must not disclose information about manuscripts (including their receipt, content, status in the publishing process, reviewer feedback and final decision) to anyone, other than the authors.

Objectivity and Fair Play

An Editor will evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors. Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Integrity of the Scientific Record

IJTMRPH is committed to maintaining the integrity of the published record and to publishing the most objective and unbiased scientific information possible. As such, we subscribe to the principles adopted by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and follow the COPE’s Code of Conduct.

Research misconduct includes fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results, according to experts. If a suspicion or allegation of scientific misconduct or fraudulent research is brought to the journal’s attention concerning a manuscript submitted for review, IJTMRPH reserves the right to raise these concerns with other relevant institutions or other appropriate authorities for investigation. In the handling and resolution of such cases, we follow COPE’s guidance and recommendations

IJTMRPH will take all necessary steps to maintain the accuracy and quality of the papers it publishes. To this end, IJTMRPH will publish correspondence about papers and publish Errata and Corrigenda when appropriate. In cases of serious error or scientific misconduct, it may be necessary to ask authors to retract their papers or to impose retraction upon them. Should an author discern a significant error or inaccuracy in the published article, they are responsible for notifying IJTMRPH Editor-in-Chief or publisher, and should work together with them to retract or correct the paper. If the Editor-in-Chief or the publisher learns that a published article contains a significant error, the author will be asked to correct or possibly retract the paper, or assist verification by the Editor-in-Chief of the correctness of the original paper.

Errata and Corrigenda

Should an error appear in a published article that affects scientific meaning or author credibility but does not affect the overall results and conclusions of the paper, our policy is to publish a correction in print and online in the next available issue of the journal. If an error is introduced by the publisher during the editing and/or proofing stages, the journal takes responsibility and a correction is published as an Erratum, with appropriate apologies to authors and readers. If an error is introduced by the authors, the correction is published as a Corrigendum and the author is required to pay all costs associated with the correction.


Should a paper contain one or more significant errors or inaccuracies that change some or all of the results or conclusions described therein, the entire paper may be retracted. The word ‘retraction’ will be used in the title of the retraction to ensure that it is picked up by indexing and archiving systems. The journal will request an explanation from the author(s) as to how the errors or inaccuracies occurred, and if they are not satisfied with the response they will ask the employers of the authors or some other appropriate body to investigate, and particularly to consider the possibility of fraudulent behavior. The journal will make all reasonable attempts to ensure that such an investigation is carried out with due diligence. To the extent possible, we will assist the parties and their institutions in the resolutions of these cases.

Should an author discern a significant error or inaccuracy in the published article, they are responsible for notifying IJTMRPH, and should work together with the journal to retract or correct the paper. If the journal learns that a published article contains a significant error, the author will be asked to correct or possibly retract the paper, or assist verification by the Editor-in-Chief of the correctness of the original paper.

Redundant or Concurrent Publication

Research manuscripts that describe work already published elsewhere will not be considered. The submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently is also considered to be unethical practice. This does not prevent journals from considering articles that have been rejected by other journals or that were not previously published in full (e.g. abstracts or posters presented at scientific meetings).

When submitting, authors should declare any previous submissions or reports that might be regarded as redundant or duplicate publication. Copies of any such related articles should be included with the submitted manuscript to assist editorial decision making. If redundant publication is attempted or occurs, editorial action will be taken, including probable rejection or publication of a notice of redundant or duplicate publication.


Plagiarism is the “use of others’ published and unpublished ideas or words (or other intellectual property) without attribution or permission, and presenting them as new and original rather than derived from an existing source” see – the World Association of Medical Editors web site). It is considered a dishonest and unacceptable practice. By submitting an article, authors are thereby asserting that their work is entirely original and that others’ work or text has been appropriately cited or attributed.

IJTMRPH is committed to the publication of high-quality, original, research in the field of translational medical research and public health. The journal will take every step to ensure that, to the best of their knowledge, papers published in the journal are original and conform to the best ethical principles. This includes the use of proprietary and open-source anti-plagiarism screening services and software to verify the originality of content submitted before publication. Manuscripts found to have been plagiarized will be automatically rejected and the editors reserve the right to notify appropriate agencies or the institutions of the corresponding authors.

Author Contributions

An author is someone who has made significant and substantial contributions to a study. This should include conception, design, execution and interpretation of the findings being published, and drafting and revising the article. Papers must be submitted with the agreement of all authors, and all authors should give final approval of the version to be published. Those who have made other contributions to the work, such as by providing reagents or assisting with the writing, should be listed in the Acknowledgements, and their role or involvement outlined.
