Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA March 2012
33 Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 42 Number 1 March 2012 Chiropractic Journal of Australia INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS Chiropractic Journal of Australia (CJA) is a peer-reviewed journal of record dedicated to the advancement of chiropractic science, principles and practice and seeks to fulfl this purpose by critical review and publication of rese arch and scholarly works relating to the scientifc bases and clinical applications of chiropractic, and supportive presentations of an educational and/ or professional nature. Manuscripts are accepted for consideration to publish with the understanding that they represent original unpublished work which is submitted solely to CJA, i.e. has not been, and will not be, submitted elsewhere until a fnal decision has been reached by the editors, and that the work contains nothing that is libellous, obscene, unlawful or an invasion of privacy. Continuing call for papers includes: Investigations. Reports of original research relevant to the practice of chiropractic, education of practitioners and the role of chiropractors in the health care delivery system and public education. Hypotheses. Preliminary studies that may establish a basis for further, in-depth investigations. Literature Reviews. Critical assessments of current knowledge of a subject of interest, with emphasis on better correlation, exposition of ambiguities and delineation of areas that may constitute hypotheses for further study. Case Reports. Accounts of the diagnosis and treatment of unusual, diffcult or otherwise interesting cases that may have independent educational value or may contribute to better standardisation of care for a particular health problem when correlated with similar reports of others. Case Reviews. A retrospective, comparative evaluation of the diagnosis and treatment of several cases of a similar condition. Historical Articles. Documentation of aspects of the history of chiropractic, including biographical sketches, legitimation of the profession, emergence of institutions and development of professional education. Technical Reports. Evaluation of equipment or procedures that are new or have not previously been so evaluated. Commentary. In-depth essays on matters relating to the clinical, professional, educational, and/or politicolegal aspects of health care principles and practice. Letters to the Editors. Communications intended to amplify, clarify or draw attention to a defciency in a paper published recently in CJA. Authors are afforded the privilege of counter response. All manuscripts (including letters) must be accompanied by a properly executed Letter of Transmittal (Form A). Upon submission, it is to be accepted by all parties that no further dissemination of any part of the material contained in the manuscript is permitted, in any manner, without prior approval from the editors in writing. Non-observance of this stipulation may result in summary rejection of the manuscript. Upon acceptance, the following rights are transferred to the publisher: (1) the right to print, publish, or in any way reproduce the article in any language anywhere in the world; (2) to license a third party to publish the work in reprint form or as part of a book, anthology or abstract; (3) to negotiate translation rights. Upon publication, the publisher grants certain rights to the author, subject to proper credit being given to the publisher as to the form of the original publication. These subsidiary rights of authors include: (1) republication of the article in any book of which the author is the only or principal editor; (2) free use of all or any part of the article in future works, including lectures, press releases and reviews; (3) the right to reproduce the article for the author ’s own purposes, provided the copies are not offered for sale. Manuscripts must be submitted in the English language and prepared in accordance with “Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals” as revised from time to time by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE),1 from which the following instructions are adapted. ISSUES TO CONSIDER BEFORE SUBMITTING A MANU- SCRIPT Redundant or Duplicate Publication CJA will not consider manuscripts that are simultaneously being considered by other journals and does not normally consider for publication a paper on work that has already been reported in a published paper or is described in a paper submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere. This policy does not preclude consideration of a paper that has been rejected by another journal or of a complete report that follows publication of a preliminary report, such as an abstract, nor does it prevent consideration of a paper that has been presented at a scientifc meeting if not published in full in a proceedings or similar publication. Press reports of the meeting will not usually be considered as breaches of this rule, but such reports should not be amplifed by additional data or copies of tables and illustrations. When submitting a paper an author should always make a full statement to the editors about all submissions and previous reports that might be regarded as prior or duplicate publication of the same or very similar work. Copies of such material should be included with the submitted paper to help the editors decide how to deal with the matter. Preliminary release, e.g. to public media, of scientifc information described in a paper that is undergoing peer review or that has been accepted but not yet published is a violation of CJA policy. Should preliminary release of data in the public interest be warranted (e.g. to warn the public of health hazards), prior written permission of the editors must be secured. Acceptable Secondary Publication Secondary publication in the same or another language, especially in other countries, is justifable, and can be benefcial, provided all of the following conditions are met: 1. The authors have received approval from the editors of both journals; the editor concerned with secondary publication must have a photocopy, reprint, or manuscript of the primary version. 2. The priority of the primary publication is respected by a publication interval of at least one week (unless specifcally negotiated otherwise by both editors).
