Manuscripts in English, Esperanto, Spanish, Italian, Polish (or any other conference language), can be submitted via Open Journal System (OJS). Each article has to have an abstract in English or Esperanto and an abstract in the national language of the country, in which the study was performed or which is concerned by the contents of the submitted article.
Manuscripts should be saved in native format, offered by text processing software (preferably .docx, .doc, .odt). All figures (apart from being embed in text, or marked) should be saved and submitted in native separate files (.jpeg, .cdr, .cpt, .svg, .tiff) with resolution suitable for printing typically 300 dpi (or greater) for color photographs and at least 400 dpi (or greater) for black-white and gray scale drawings.
Layout of the manuscript should be left as simple as it is possible. Text has to be in single column format. Use Times New Roman 12 with 1.5 interline throughout the manuscript and avoid unnecessary formatting. Paragraphs have to be clearly separated from each other. Italic and bold face fonts can be used just as subscripts and superscripts etc. Options in word-processing software for text justification and word hyphenation must not be used.
Mathematical formula should be written in single line format (e.g. (2+2)^-2/[(2*2)-2]=2/x^-2) or written in LaTeX®Chemical formulas should be provided in a chemical drawing software format (rarely a high resolution .tif or .jpeg can be accepted but at the redaction discretion)
During publication, most of the formatting codes will be deleted and/or replaced by our editors to fit the manuscript into journal layout.
All lines of text should be numbered.
The maximum number of characters depends on the type of article:
- Letter to the editorial board: 1000
- Short article: 3000
- Original publication: 6000
- Review publication: 7000
Should not be exceedingly long and should state the main research goal and methodology.
The abstract should be written in English or Esperanto, left short and state briefly research goal, results, and the most important conclusions. As Medicina Internacia Revuo is readily willing to accept papers from authors who speak neither English nor Esperanto, this task might be fulfilled by the editorial board on these special occasions. References in the abstract should be avoided. Abstract should be prepared in a way allowing its presentation as a stand-alone note.
The maximum number of characters is 250.
Up to six keywords can be defined, and should allow others to find the article in search forms.
All non-standard abbreviations in chosen research field, should be listed in the beginning of the manuscript and explained – or explained on their first occurrence in the text.
Should be cited in square brackets [1,2,3] and reffer to a separate part of manuscript “References”.
Dear Authors – from June 2019, MIR is introducing new referencing style – Vancouver (previous style was ACS (American Chemical Society)). Please note it during manuscript preparation.
Citations should be made in Vancouver style, example:
Smith M, Kowalski A, Johanson MK. Medicinal activity of Bacopa monnieri. Med Int Rev. 2013; 1(2): 54-62.
In the text, sequential numbers of citations should be in order of appearence (NOT ALPHABETICALLY) in parentheses.
