Journal of Biomedical & Laboratory Sciences
**Instructions to Authors**


Scope:

Journal of Biomedical and Laboratory Science seeks to publish Original Articles, Review Articles, Brief Communications and Letters to the Editor describing original investigations in all fields of clinical laboratory sciences with an application to medicine. The journal includes seven major sections: clinical studies in chemistry, serology and immunology, hematology and transfusion medicine, virology, bacteriology, clinical microscopy analysis, and quality control or other laboratory administration issues. The journal is issued quarterly and is published by Taiwan Society of Laboratory Medicine.


Submission of manuscripts:

Authors should submit all manuscripts online. Manuscripts should include a cover letter indicating the suitable section of the manuscript and stating the consent of all authors to publication of the manuscript as well as the following copyright transfer statement, signed by all authors: "In consideration that the Journal of Biomedical and Laboratory Sciences will review the submitted manuscript and edit it if it is accepted, the undersigned authors hereby transfer, assign, or otherwise convey all copyright ownership to Taiwan Society of Laboratory Medicine in the event that the manuscript is published in the Journal of Biomedical and Laboratory Sciences".


Consideration for publication:

All articles will be assessed on the basis of originality , scientific quality and fulfill the scope of the journal to determine their acceptability for publication. Manuscripts written in English or Chinese are both acceptable. An extra page of English title and abstract must be attached if the whole manuscript is written in Chinese, and vice versa. Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.


Preparation of manuscripts:

The manuscript, tables, legends, and footnotes should be double spaced and typed on one side of white bond papers, 8.5 x II inch (21.6 x 27.9 cm) or ISO A4, with all margins of at least one inch (2.5 cm). The right margin should not be justified. When possible, text should be printed with a laser printer.


Title page:

The title page should be the first page and include a concise title of the article, full names and affiliations of the authors, an address for correspondence and a telephone or fax number of the corresponding author. The title page should include a running title of not more than 45 English characters or 30 Chinese characters.


Abstract:

Each manuscript must be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 200 words in length (less than 100 words for brief communication). The abstract should state the objectives of the study, the techniques used, and the principle conclusions. Three to five key words should be provided.


Text:

The text of original articles should be organized under the following headings: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgments and References. The text should describe the equipment and methods in sufficient detail to permit other researchers to reconstruct the experimental procedures. Equipment and pharmaceutical trade names as well as company's name, place and country should be listed. Trade names of medicine should be stated with generic names. Do not use section headings in the body of the Brief communication; combine methods, results, and discussion in a single section.


Figures:

Glossy photographs, submitted in triplicate, should have good contrast. A label should be affixed on the back of each photo indicating the figure number, the first author, and an arrow indicating the top of the photo. Legends for each illustration should be double spaced. Magnification and staining information should be included for all photomicrographs. All illustrations and tables taken from other publications must be accompanied by written consent to reprint from the original publishers. Photos must be of sufficient color for reproduction. Figure legends should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet of paper.


Tables:

Tables should by typed double spaced on separate sheets. All tables will be reset to conform with the style of the journal. Tables should be used sparingly and should avoid duplication of information in the text. For brief communication, please only submit one table and one figure.


References:

All references should be cited at the end of the paper and listed consecutively in the order in which they appear in the text. The following are formats and examples for citing references:

Review and publication procedure:

Manuscripts are acknowledged upon receipt in the editorial offices. All manuscripts are subject to review by two independent referees chosen by the Editor. If revision is necessary, the author is asked to promptly submit three copies of the revised manuscript incorporating his responses to the suggestions and recommendations of the referees. When it is necessary to reject a manuscript, the editorial office will not return any materials. The authors are advised to keep an original copy of any important materials for further use. Reasons for rejection are generally stated. The author of an accepted manuscript will be notified. He/ she will then receive galley proofs for proofreading. Responsibility for accuracy in the final copy lies with the author. The proofs should be checked and returned within three days after receipt.
