Research Article     Short Communication     Review Article

Please note - there are only few formal formatting requirements* for the first round of peer review (i.e. if you have formatted for example the references differently, there is no need to change this). However, some changes may then be required during the revision or upon acceptance. You may also paste your figures directly in the Word file, either at the end or within the text - this makes the work for the reviewers often easier. Do not forget the legends, and make sure that the embedded figures have adequate quality (you may need to use the Paste special option in Word instead of just <CTRL-v> to select the most appropriate format).

*of course the manuscript must be complete and contain all required sections, i.e. Title, Authors, Abstract (optional: Practical applications), Introduction, Materials and methods, Results, Discussion (or Results and Discussion), Conclusions, Conflict of interest statement, References, Figures and Tables with legends

Online Submission of Manuscripts

Online Open

OnlineOpen is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With OnlineOpen, the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in the funding agency's preferred archive.

All OnlineOpen articles are treated in the same way as any other article. They go through the journal's standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.
