Maximum length of manuscript: 3,000 words (not including abstract, tables, figures, references) with no more than a total of eight tables and/or figures.
  • Systematic Review with or without Meta-Analysis: These manuscripts critically assess clinical topics in the literature that address factors including cause, diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, or prevention. All data sources should be searched and selected systematically for inclusion. The search, selection, and critical assessment process should be described in the manuscript. Authors are strongly encouraged to use PRISMA Guidelines to guide their reviews (Ann Intern Med 2009;151(4): 264-269). For each data source, describe the type of study, population, intervention, exposure, and outcomes. An abstract of no more than 200 words is required. Maximum length of manuscript: 3,000 words (not including abstract, tables, figures, references) with no more than a total of four tables and/or figures and no more than 50 references.
