Manuscripts should adhere to the requirements of the style guidelines. We require one version with information concerning the author/s and one blind manuscript for the reviewer. Any information which could identify the author/s are to be removed. Own references have to be referred to in the third person (Example: “Zitzel and Dumont  have demonstrated…” instead of “We have previously demonstrated… ).
The Editorial Board asks reviewers and authors to respect the guidelines of Good Scientific Practice. Manuscripts must be submitted on the understanding that they, or significant parts of them, have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration by another journal or another publisher. Publications in short form, which have been presented along the lines of a conference do not count as prior publication. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article’s publication has been approved by all the other coauthors. It is also the submitting authors’ responsibility to ensure that the articles emanating from a particular institution are submitted with the approval of the responsible institution. It is a condition of submission that the authors permit editing of the paper for readability.
