 About the Journal  Top

Journal of Applied Hematology, a publication of Saudi Scientific Society of Hematology, is a peer-reviewed online journal with Quarterly print on demand compilation of issues published. The journal is one of few journals in the middle east region with focus on issues related to hematological disorders and practice in Saudi Arabia, gulf region and middle east. The journal promotes research in the field of hematology we large group of local and international reviewers providing critical evaluation as well as advices for young investigators and authors. Journal’s full text is available online at http://www.jahjournal.org. The journal allows free access (Open Access) to its contents and permits authors to self-archive final accepted version of the articles on any OAI-compliant institutional / subject-based repository. The journal does not charge for submission, processing or publication of manuscripts and even for color reproduction of photographs.

 Scope of the journal  Top

The journal will cover technical and clinical studies related to health, ethical and social issues in field of Thrombosis, bleeding disorders, Hemoglobinopathies, transfusion medicine, hematological malignancies and stem cell transplantation. Articles with clinical interest and implications will be given preference.   

 The Editorial Process Top

A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to Journal of Applied Hematology alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the Journal of Applied Hematology readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.

Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in Journal of Applied Hematology are sent to two or more expert reviewers. During submission, the contributor is requested to provide names of two or three qualified reviewers who have had experience in the subject of the submitted manuscript, but this is not mandatory. The reviewers should not be affiliated with the same institutes as the contributor/s. However, the selection of these reviewers is at the sole discretion of the editor. The journal follows a double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other’s identity. Every manuscript is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions (acceptance/ rejection/ amendments in manuscript) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript.

Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. The whole process of submission of the manuscript to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online. To achieve faster and greater dissemination of knowledge and information, the journal publishes articles online as ‘Ahead of Print’ immediately on acceptance.

 Clinical trial registry   Top

Journal of Applied Hematology favors registration of clinical trials and is a signatory to the Statement on publishing clinical trials in Indian biomedical journals. Journal of Applied Hematology would publish clinical trials that have been registered with a clinical trial registry that allows free online access to public. Registration in the following trial registers is acceptable: http://www.ctri.in/; http://www.actr.org.au/; http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/; http://isrctn.org/; http://www.trialregister.nl/trialreg/index.asp; and http://www.umin.ac.jp/ctr. This is applicable to clinical trials that have begun enrollment of subjects in or after June 2008. Clinical trials that have commenced enrollment of subjects prior to June 2008 would be considered for publication in Journal of Applied Hematology only if they have been registered retrospectively with clinical trial registry that allows unhindered online access to public without charging any fees.

 Authorship Criteria Top

Authorship credit should be based only on substantial contributions to each of the three components mentioned below: 

  1. Concept and design of study or acquisition of data or analysis and interpretation of data;
  2. Drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and
  3. Final approval of the version to be published.

Participation solely in the acquisition of funding or the collection of data does not justify authorship. General supervision of the research group is not sufficient for authorship. Each contributor should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content of the manuscript. The order of naming the contributors should be based on the relative contribution of the contributor towards the study and writing the manuscript. Once submitted the order cannot be changed without written consent of all the contributors. The journal prescribes a maximum number of authors for manuscripts depending upon the type of manuscript, its scope and number of institutions involved (vide infra). The authors should provide a justification, if the number of authors exceeds these limits.

 Contribution Details Top

Contributors should provide a description of contributions made by each of them towards the manuscript. Description should be divided in following categories, as applicable: concept, design, definition of intellectual content, literature search, clinical studies, experimental studies, data acquisition, data analysis, statistical analysis, manuscript preparation, manuscript editing and manuscript review. Authors' contributions will be printed along with the article. One or more author should take responsibility for the integrity of the work as a whole from inception to published article and should be designated as 'guarantor'. 

 Conflicts of Interest/ Competing Interests Top

All authors of must disclose any and all conflicts of interest they may have with publication of the manuscript or an institution or product that is mentioned in the manuscript and/or is important to the outcome of the study presented. Authors should also disclose conflict of interest with products that compete with those mentioned in their manuscript.

 Submission of Manuscripts Top

All manuscripts must be submitted on-line through the website http://www.journalonweb.com/joah. First time users will have to register at this site. Registration is free but mandatory. Registered authors can keep track of their articles after logging into the site using their user name and password. Authors do not have to pay for submission, processing or publication of articles. If you experience any problems, please contact the editorial office by e-mail at editor [AT] jahjournal . org

The submitted manuscripts that are not as per the “Instructions to Authors” would be returned to the authors for technical correction, before they undergo editorial/ peer-review. Generally, the manuscript should be submitted in the form of two separate files:

[1] Title Page/First Page File/covering letter:

This file should provide

  1. The type of manuscript (original article, case report, review article, Letter to editor, Images, etc.) title of the manuscript, running title, names of all authors/ contributors (with their highest academic degrees, designation and affiliations) and name(s) of department(s) and/ or institution(s) to which the work should be credited, . All information which can reveal your identity should be here. Use text/rtf/doc files. Do not zip the files.
  2. The total number of pages, total number of photographs and word counts separately for abstract and for the text (excluding the references, tables and abstract), word counts for introduction + discussion in case of an original article;
  3. Source(s) of support in the form of grants, equipment, drugs, or all of these;
  4. Acknowledgement, if any. One or more statements should specify 1) contributions that need acknowledging but do not justify authorship, such as general support by a departmental chair; 2) acknowledgments of technical help; and 3) acknowledgments of financial and material support, which should specify the nature of the support. This should be included in the title page of the manuscript and not in the main article file.
  5. If the manuscript was presented as part at a meeting, the organization, place, and exact date on which it was read. A full statement to the editor about all submissions and previous reports that might be regarded as redundant publication of the same or very similar work. Any such work should be referred to specifically, and referenced in the new paper. Copies of such material should be included with the submitted paper, to help the editor decide how to handle the matter.
  6. Registration number in case of a clinical trial and where it is registered (name of the registry and its URL)
  7. Conflicts of Interest of each author/ contributor. A statement of financial or other relationships that might lead to a conflict of interest, if that information is not included in the manuscript itself or in an authors' form
  8. Criteria for inclusion in the authors’/ contributors’ list
  9. A statement that the manuscript has been read and approved by all the authors, that the requirements for authorship as stated earlier in this document have been met, and that each author believes that the manuscript represents honest work, if that information is not provided in another form (see below); and
  10. The name, address, e-mail, and telephone number of the corresponding author, who is responsible for communicating with the other authors about revisions and final approval of the proofs, if that information is not included on the manuscript itself.

[2] Blinded Article file: The main text of the article, beginning from Abstract till References (including tables) should be in this file. The file must not contain any mention of the authors' names or initials or the institution at which the study was done or acknowledgements. Page headers/running title can include the title but not the authors' names. Manuscripts not in compliance with the Journal's blinding policy will be returned to the corresponding author. Use rtf/doc files. Do not zip the files. Limit the file size to 1 MB. Do not incorporate images in the file. If file size is large, graphs can be submitted as images separately without incorporating them in the article file to reduce the size of the file. The pages should be numbered consecutively, beginning with the first page of the blinded article file.

[3] Images: Submit good quality color images. Each image should be less than 2 MB in size. Size of the image can be reduced by decreasing the actual height and width of the images (keep up to 1600 x 1200 pixels or 5-6 inches). Images can be submitted as jpeg files. Do not zip the files. Legends for the figures/images should be included at the end of the article file. 

[4] The contributors' / copyright transfer form (template provided below) has to be submitted in original with the signatures of all the contributors within two weeks of submission via courier, fax or email as a scanned image. Print ready hard copies of the images (one set) or digital images should be sent to the journal office at the time of submitting revised manuscript. High resolution images (up to 5 MB each) can be sent by email.

Contributors’ form / copyright transfer form can be submitted online from the authors’ area on http://www.journalonweb.com/joah.

It is the responsibility of authors/ contributors to obtain permissions for reproducing any copyrighted material. A copy of the permission obtained must accompany the manuscript. Copies of any and all published articles or other manuscripts in preparation or submitted elsewhere that are related to the manuscript must also accompany the manuscript. The material should be sent to any of the two addresses given above.

 Types of Manuscripts Top

Review articles:

Authors are invited by the Editors-in-Chief for submission of review articles which should focus on recent scientific or clinical advances in an area of interest to those in the field of Hematology. Authors wishing to submit an unsolicited Review Article are invited to contact the Editor-in-Chief prior to submission, in order to screen the proposed topic for relevance and priority. Review articles must be concise and critical and should include appropriate references to the literature. All Review Articles, including those solicited by the Editors, are rigorously peer reviewed before a final publication decision is made.

Review articles should not exceed 4,000 words in length, must include an abstract of 200 words or fewer, and may not have more than 100 references. The use of tables and color figures to summarize critical points is encouraged.

Original articles:

Journal of Applied Hematology accepts original articles with a maximum length of 5000 words not counting the abstract, table and figures. The sections of an Original Article should be well-arranged in Abstract, Introduction, Methods (must include sufficient information to allow readers to understand the article content), Results, Discussion, Acknowledgements, Authorship Contributions and Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest, References, Tables, Figure Legends, and Figures. The Abstract should not exceed 250 words and should be constructed a single paragraph with no subheadings. Supplemental data - to be published online only - may include additional information regarding methodology, supplemental figures or tables, or primary data sets; and it must be submitted with the original manuscript submission so that it can be peer reviewed.

All clinical submissions must have been approved by an ethics committee or institutional review board. Any involvement of medical writers/researchers, particularly those employed or supported by the pharmaceutical industry, in the writing of an article must be clearly defined and disclosed in the Authorship and/or the Acknowledgements section(s) as appropriate. This type of involvement must also be disclosed to the Editor-in-Chief in the Cover Letter. For more information, see “conflict of interest disclosure” and the “authorship information” sections below.

Original research articles of exceptional scientific importance may be considered for designation as “Plenary Paper”. The decision to highlight an article as a Plenary Paper rests entirely with the Editors. Sometimes the Editors may invite experts in the field to write brief commentaries introducing and placing into context selected original research articles included in the issue.

Image in Hematology:

Journal of Applied of Hematology welcomes submission of photo images along with brief case descriptions to serve as a regular teaching feature. We place importance to the value that the microscope adds to the history and physical examination. One photograph (peripheral smear, or views of blood forming tissue) is preferable, but two views are also acceptable (one of those may be a related clinical or radiology or laboratory preparation image). Each submission must contain a single, high-resolution figure formatted as a TIFF (minimum 300 dpi) and a discussion of up to 200 words describing the clinical case linked to the image. Each submission should have no more than three authors and maximum of two references if unavoidable. When submitting a manuscript for review, image file formats accepted for uploading are GIF, JPEG (.jpg), PDF, and EPS. The total file size of the PDF for peer review should not exceed 5 MB.

Letter to the Editor:

 

Constructive comments related to published articles or other current topics in Hematology may be published as letter to the editor. Letters should include no more than 1000 words of text, 5–10 references, and 1 figure or table. No abstract is needed, but a brief title is required. Letter may also contain significant new primary data and/or the inclusion of a figure to make very important points. Stand-alone brief communications on basic or clinical topics in hematology may also be considered for publication as a Letter to the Editor, based on priority and interest to readership as evaluated by peer review. Authors of published articles are encouraged to respond with their own comments to those Letters that have been sent in reference to their articles. Letters that are not directly related to a published article, that duplicate points similar to those of already published comments, or that are characterized by blasphemy, personal attacks, unprofessional tone or content, or offensive, abusive or defamatory language will not be entertained.

Case Report:

Journal of Applied Hematology welcomes welldescribed reports of one or more cases of informative clinical observation (maximum 2000 words).

Case reports submitted should make a contribution to medical knowledge and must have educational value or highlight the need for a change in clinical practice or diagnostic/prognostic approaches. See details in “Instructions for Authors” online in “instructions and forms” at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jahem.

These reports should include relevant positive and negative findings from history, examination and investigation, and can include clinical photographs, provided identifiable photographs are accompanied by written consent to publish from the patient(s). Case reports should preferably include an up-to-date brief review of all previous cases published in the field.

Authors are encouraged to describe how the Case report is rare or unusual as well as its educational and/or scientific merits in the covering letter that will accompany the submission of the manuscript. Case report submissions will be assessed by the Editors and will be sent for peer review if considered appropriate for the journal. Authors should seek written and signed consent to publish the identifiable information from the patients or their guardians prior to submission. The submitted manuscript must include a statement to this effect in the Consent section. When needed the editorial office may request copies of the informed consent documentation.

Test Development/Validation:

Author can report the results of a newly developed test or results of a test that has been scientifically validated and has clinical application. Assay validation results should be accompanied by an appropriate measure of the precision of the estimates like the standard deviation, standard error of the mean, coefficient of variation, or 95% confidence limits. It maybe necessary to include data relating to within-assay and between assay variability.

In presenting results for new assays, it may be necessary to include data on the following: 1) within-assay variability; 2) between-assay variability; 3) slope of the dose-response curve; 4) mid-range of the assay; 5) least-detectable concentration; 6) data on specificity; 7) data on parallelism of standard and unknown and on recovery; and 8) comparison with an independent method for assay of the compound.

Short Communication:

The journal of Applied Hematology will consider short manuscripts documenting either experimental results or informative clinical observations for publication in this category. Short Communication are not intended to allow publication of incomplete or preliminary findings. The review process is similar to Original Articles. Short Communication may not exceed 1,200 words of text not counting the abstract, figure legends, and references; and the abstracts must not exceed 200 words and should be a single paragraph with no subheadings. Only 2 figures/tables and up to 25 references may be included. The sections of a Short Communication should be ordered as follows: Abstract, Introduction, Methods sufficiently informative to allow reproduction of the data, followed by a combined “Results and Discussion” section, Acknowledgements, Authorship Contributions and Conflict of Interest Disclosure, References, Tables, Figure Legends, and Figures.

References
References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Identify references in text, tables, and legends by Arabic numerals in superscript with square bracket after the punctuation marks. References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure. Use the style of the examples below, which are based on the formats used by the NLM in Index Medicus. The titles of journals should be abbreviated according to the style used in Index Medicus. Use complete name of the journal for non-indexed journals. Avoid using abstracts as references. Information from manuscripts submitted but not accepted should be cited in the text as "unpublished observations" with written permission from the source. Avoid citing a "personal communication" unless it provides essential information not available from a public source, in which case the name of the person and date of communication should be cited in parentheses in the text.
The commonly cited types of references are shown here, for other types of references such as newspaper items please refer to ICMJE Guidelines (http://www.icmje.org or http://www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/uniform_requirements.html).
