AAA Journals Support Authors Via Submission To PubMed Central

AAA journal authors whose research is funded by NIH will not have to worry about submitting their accepted manuscripts to PubMed Central (PMC). AAA’s publisher, Wiley-Blackwell, will support authors by posting the accepted version of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central upon acceptance by the journal. The accepted version is the version that incorporates all amendments made during peer review, but prior to the publisher’s copy-editing and typesetting. This accepted version will be made publicly available on PMC 12 months after publication.

The NIH public access mandate applies to all articles based on research that has been wholly or partially funded by the NIH and that are accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008.

In addition to depositing manuscripts on behalf of NIH-funded authors, Wiley has reached an agreement with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) to make post-peer reviewed articles publicly available six months after final publication. HHMI will cover the cost of this service.

For other authors of primary research articles whose funding agency requires earlier public access, Wiley-Blackwell offers a $3,000 funded access option for public availability in PubMed Central and on the journal’s website immediately upon publication. Details are available here .


SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE

Anatomical Sciences Education offers an international forum for the exchange of ideas, opinions, innovations and research on topics related to education in the anatomical sciences of gross anatomy, embryology, histology and neuroscience at all levels.

SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS

All submissions are required to be made online at the Anatomical Sciences Education Manuscript Central site (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ase). If you are submitting for the first time, and you do not have an existing account, create a new account. Returning users should check for an existing account.

Once you are logged onto the site, submission should be made via the Author Center page. Submit your manuscript and all figures as separate files. You do not need to mail any paper copies of your manuscript. At the end of a successful submission, a confirmation screen with manuscript number will appear and you will receive an e-mail confirming that the manuscript has been received by the journal. If this does not happen, please check your submission and/or contact technical support at ts.mcsupport@clarivate.com .

Only manuscripts written in acceptable English (US spelling) will be considered. If the author does not have English-writing skills equivalent to that of a native English speaker, the manuscript should be appropriately edited prior to submission to avoid rejection based on unacceptable writing. Manuscripts should be as concise as possible, and all authors must approve submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts must be original and must not have been published previously either in whole or in part, except in abstract form, and must not be under consideration by any other journal.

Notice of Wiley’s Compliance with NIH Grants and Contracts Policy. Recently, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has requested that its grantees submit copies of manuscripts upon their acceptance for publication to PubMedCentral (PMC), a repository housed within the National Library of Medicine. On behalf of our authors who are also NIH grantees, Wiley will deposit in PMC, at the same time that the article is published in our journal, the peer-reviewed version of the author’s manuscript. Wiley will stipulate that the manuscript may be available for ‘‘public access’’ in PMC 12 months after the date of publication. By assuming this responsibility, Wiley will ensure that authors are in compliance with the NIH request, as well as make certain the appropriate version of the manuscript is deposited. When an NIH grant is mentioned in the Acknowledgments or any other section of a manuscript, Wiley will assume that the author wants the manuscript deposited into PMC, unless the author states otherwise. The author can communicate this via email, or a note in the manuscript. The version of the manuscript that Wiley sends to PMC will be the accepted version; for example, the version that the journal’s Editor-in-Chief sends to Wiley for publication. Wiley will notify the author when the manuscript has been sent to PMC. Wiley reserves the right to change or rescind this policy. For further information, please get in touch with your editorial contact at Wiley, or see the NIH Policy on Public Access, located at https://publicaccess.nih.gov/policy.htm.

Review and PublicationWe strive for speedy review and rapid publication of accepted papers. On the average, the first decision on a submitted manuscript occurs within about 4 weeks of initial submission. Publication online occurs about 6–8 weeks after acceptance and in print copy within 2 months. Manuscripts requiring revisions must be resubmitted within three months of the decision date, to be considered as a revised manuscript rather than as a new manuscript requiring full review.

ETHICAL APPROVAL FOR STUDIES INVOLVING HUMAN PARTICIPANTS

Anatomical Sciences Education adheres to the policies regarding the treatment of human participants endorsed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) (http://www.icmje.org/). Research carried out on human participants must be in compliance with the Helsinki Declaration (https://www.wma.net/policies-post/wma-declaration-of-helsinki-ethical-principles-for-medical-research-involving-human-subjects/). Therefore for any research studies or evaluations involving human participants (including students, residents, fellows and faculty members), authors need to provide information regarding ethical approval for the research presented in the manuscript. A statement to this effect must be incorporated into the ‘‘Materials and Methods’’ section and should include the name of the approving committee (e.g., Institutional Review Board, Ethics Committee on Human Research, etc.), the name of the institution at which approval was granted and a reference number where appropriate. At many institutions in the United States, a decision of ‘‘exempt’’ is made by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) or by an individual designated by the institution.

In-Text Citations

All references should be cited parenthetically in the text at least once, and include the first author’s last name and publication year arranged chronologically, then alphabetically. When there are more than two authors, use the first author’s name followed by ‘‘et al’’. Citations for published papers by different authors within the same parentheses should be separated by a semicolon. When references are made to more than one paper by the same author, published in the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the citation list should be designated by consecutive lower case letters as a, b, c, etc.

Example: In the last few years, medical schools have been adopting TBL in preclinical courses (Siedel and Richards, 2001; McInerney, 2003; Nieder et al., 2005), clerkships, and resident training (Hunt et al., 2003a,b).

Footnotes: The only footnotes should be associated with tables. Do not use other footnotes; instead, place all textual information within the manuscript. All references should be placed in the proper form in the appropriate section of the manuscript.

Tables: Each table must have a self-explanatory title, be numbered in order of appearance with Arabic numerals and be cited at an appropriate point in the text. Tables should be constructed in the simplest format possible, in black and white with all external and internal border lines visible for clear divisions between table cells. They are intended to show comparisons of data that are too cumbersome to describe in the text; they should not merely repeat text information. Every table column, including subcolumns should have a heading. If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the tables will be reformatted by ASE’s graphic designer. Tables must be submitted as separate (.doc) or (.rtf) files.

Figures: At acceptance of the manuscript, the authors must submit the final revised version of illustrations online. Figures need to be cited at an appropriate point in the text.

  • Figures must be submitted as .tif or .eps files. Do not submit PDFs, jpegs, or PowerPoint files. Please select LWZ compression (an option in the ‘‘save’’ process of programs such as Photoshop) when saving your figures. This is a lossless compression routine that reduces the size of your figures without compromising their quality.
  • Figures should be submitted as electronic images to fit either one (55 mm, 2 3/1600, 13 picas), two (115mm, 4 1/200, 27 picas), or three (175 mm, 6 7/800, 41 picas) columns. The length of an illustration cannot exceed 227 mm (900). Journal quality reproduction requires grey scale and color files at resolutions of 300 dpi. Bitmapped line art should be submitted at resolutions of 600–1200 dpi. These resolutions refer to the output size of the file; if you anticipate that your images will be enlarged, resolutions should be increased accordingly.
  • Helvetica typeface is preferred for lettering of illustrations. All letters, numbers and symbols must be at least 2 mm high. Courier typeface should be used for sequence figures. Number figures in one consecutive series with Arabic numerals, and key them into the text. Freehand or typewritten lettering is unacceptable.
  • Submit a brief descriptive legend with each illustration, and do not repeat results in figure legends.
  • Figure number should be listed in the legend. Do not incorporate figure number in the figure.
  • Color figures, when deemed necessary, are published free of charge at the discretion of the Editor-in Chief. Authors are encouraged to group color illustrations onto a single page without sacrificing the clarity of the manuscript. The publisher reserves the right to regroup illustrations and change their size and position to utilize color pages efficiently.
  • Authors are responsible for obtaining written permission for use of previously published figures. Such permissions should be included with the manuscript.

Figure Legends: Legends for each figure should not exceed 200 words. Abbreviations used in figures and legends must match exactly those used in the text.

Supplementary Materials (if applicable): Materials suitable for inclusion as online documentation, such as movies, 3-D structures, high resolution images, programming sequences, and large data sets are welcome. All supplemental materials must be peer reviewed and approved by the Editor-in-Chief in order to be published online.

  • Movies should be submitted online in QuickTime 4.0 or higher format; (.mpeg) and (.avi) files are also acceptable. All movies should be submitted at the desired reproduction size and length. To avoid excessive delays in downloading the files, movies should be no more than 6MB in size, and run between 30–60 seconds in length. Authors are encouraged to use QuickTime’s ‘‘compress’’ option when preparing files to help control file size. Additionally, cropping frames and image sizes can significantly reduce file sizes. Files submitted can be looped to play more than once, provided file size does not become excessive. Authors will be notified if problems exist with videos as submitted, and will be asked to modify them. No editing will be done to the videos at the editorial office—all changes are the responsibility of the author.

COVER LETTER

A cover letter must accompany the submission and should provide the following information:

  • Assurance that the manuscript is an original work, has not been published previously either in whole or in part, except in abstract form, and is not under consideration for publication by any other journal.
  • A statement that participation of human subjects did not occur until after informed consent was obtained.
  • Confirmation that all authors have disclosed any potential competing financial interests regarding the submitted article.
  • Written permission from copyright holder to reproduce figures, tables, questionnaires in both print and electronic form.
  • A statement indicating that all authors have read and accept responsibility for the manuscript’s contents.
PROOFS AND REPRINTS

Upon acceptance of a manuscript for publication in Anatomical Sciences Education, the author will be required to sign an agreement transferring copyright to the American Association of Anatomists, who reserves copyright.

No published material may be reproduced or published elsewhere without the written permission of the Publisher and the author. The journal will not be responsible for the loss of manuscripts at any time. All statements in, or omissions from, published manuscripts are the responsibility of the authors, who will assist the editorial office and the American Association of Anatomists by reviewing proofs before publication. Reprint order forms will be sent with the proofs.

PAGE CHARGES

There are no page charges for publication in Anatomical Sciences Education.

SOFTWARE AND FORMAT

Microsoft Word 6.0 (or later) is preferred, although manuscripts prepared with any other microcomputer word processor are acceptable. Refrain from complex formatting; the Publisher will style your manuscript according to the Journal design specifications. Do not use desktop publishing software such as Aldus PageMaker or Quark XPress. If you prepared your manuscript with one of these programs, export the text to a word processing format. Please make sure your word processing program’s ‘‘fast save’’ feature is turned off. Do not deliver files that contain hidden text: for example, do not use your word processor’s automated features to create footnotes or reference lists.

Visit the new Author Services [http://authorservices.wiley.com/] today! Features include:

  • Free access to your article for 10 of your colleagues; each author of a paper may nominate up to 10 colleagues. This feature is retrospective—even articles already published offer this feature for free colleague access.
  • Access in perpetuity to your published article.
  • Production tracking for your article and easy communication with the Production Editor via e-mail.
  • A list of your favorite journals with quick links to the Editorial Board, Aims & Scope, Author Guidelines and if applicable the Online Submission website; journals in which you have tracked production of an article are automatically added to your Favorites.
