Information for Authors
The Neurological Journal of South East Asia (NJSEA) will publish manuscripts dealing with any aspect of neurology. In addition to original articles, NJSEA will publish brief communications and case reports (up to 1,000 words), and letters to the editor (up to 500 words). Papers are accepted on the understanding that they are original. Editorials and review articles are published by invitation. All manuscripts, including solicited materials, are subject to editorial revisions.
Type on white paper, preferably A4 (30x21 cm) size, with margins of at least 25mm (1 in). Type only on one side of the paper. Use double spacing throughout. Begin each of the sections on separate pages: title, abstract and key words, text, acknowledgements, references, individual tables and legends.
The title page should carry:
Abstract and Key Words
The abstract should be not more than 200 words. The abstract should state the purpose(s) of the study, basic procedures, main findings, and the principal conclusions. Emphasize new and important aspects of the study. Provide 3-10 key words or short phrases that will assist in cross-indexing of the article. Use terms from the medical subject headings list of Index Medicus when possible.
Text should be divided into the following sections: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Discussion. Long articles may need sub-headings within some section to clarify their content. Articles such as case reports, reviews, and editorials are likely to need other formats.
Number references consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. Identify references by Arabic numerals. The titles of journals should be abbreviated according to the style used in Index Medicus. Manuscipts accepted but not yet published may be included in the references; designate the journal followed by in ?press" (in parenthesis). Information from manuscipts not yet accepted for publication should be cited in the text as "unpublished observations" (in parenthesis).
Examples of forms of references:
Type each table, double-spaced, on a separate sheet. Do not submit tables as photographs. Number tables consecutively in the order of their first citation in the text and supply a brief title for each. Place explanatory matter in footnotes. Explain in footnotes all non-standard abbreviations used.
Submit 2 complete sets of figures. Instead of original drawings, XRs, send sharp, glossy black-and-white photographic prints, usually 127 x 173 mm (5 x 7 in). Titles and explanations belong in the legends for illustrations.
Units of Measurements
Measurements of length, height, weight, and volume should be in metric units. Temperature should be given in degrees Celsius. All hematological and clinical chemistry measurements should be reported in the metric system in terms of International System of Units (SI).
Abbreviation and Symbols
Use only standard abbreviations. Avoid abbreviations in the title and summary. The full term for which an abbreviation stands should precede its first use in the text unless it is a standard unit of measurement.
