Reviews

The journal publishes reviews of literature, including systematic reviews of clinical trials in different directions of traumatoogy and orthopedics and related areas.

The main purpose of a review manuscript should be a discussion of actual data or presentation the original author's view on a problem. It shouldn't be a simple enumeration of previously published data. Thus, the discussion is a mandatory part of the review manuscript (it can be isolated in a separate section or place systematically throughout the text).

Authors should indicate all the sources of primary information in the manuscript (names of the full-text and references databases, keywords and other search settings).

The manuscript of literature review should be structured into sections and contain graphic materials.

Original studies

The journal accept manuscript containing results of international and local clinical and experimental studies, and meta-analyzes in the area of traumatology and orthopedics and related specialties.

The journal is welcome for manuscripts with human subjects studies results, as well as results of experimental studies in vitro and animal studies. Journal does not publish experimental and clinical studies of dietary supplements ("bioactive adds to food").

Editorial board will select for publication only manuscripts of clinical and experimental studies which were conducted in accordance with international biomedical ethics and deontology principles. Editorial board asks the authors to describe that presented study was conducted in accordance with international GCP standards: voluntary signing of an informed consent by all of participants; approval of the study protocol by the local ethics committee (the distinct name of ethics committee, the meeting date and protocol number should be indicate in a manuscript), etc.

The detailed study protocol should be presented in the manuscript. Authors should give so many details of a study protocol as need for it fully replaying. In the case of meta-analyze authors should describe in details the procedure of information search: names of databases, filters and keywords, as well as any additional search settings for primary sources collecting.

In compliance with the ethics policy editorial board asks authors to indicate the source of funding of their work (study preparation, writing and publishing the manuscript, etc.), and declare of apparent or potential conflicts of interests. Please note that the presence of obvious or potential conflict of interest (including the financial interest of the authors) or affiliation of any organization (public or private) with conduction of the research is not a reason for a manuscript rejection. Rather, it gives additional advantages of manuscript under evaluation by reviewers and will cause more interest and trust from readers.

Short Messages

The journal is looking for manuscripts with case reports in the area of traumatology and orthopedics and related specialties.

Potential topics for case reports are:

  • diagnosis - new or rare trauma condition or unusual presentation of common condition, uncertain diagnosis situation, discussion of differential diagnosis, novel diagnostic procedures;
  • treatment - new treatments or established treatments in new situations, treatment of rare trauma-related conditions, unique technical procedures, unexpected outcomes or effects from routine or rare procedures, adverse events or unanticipated events;
  • special circumstances - highly individualized treatments, complex situations, integration of multiple therapies, ethical challenges, learning from errors, findings that shed new light on the possible pathogenesis of a disease or an adverse effect.

The main purpose of a manuscript should be a clinical case presentation in view of diagnostic approach, ethical or management challenge, or highlights new aspects of pathogenesis, pharmacology or histopathology. Manuscript should discuss accumulated facts and also compare new data with previously proven information.

We recommend all authors to hold the manuscript structure and chronologize all the facts, report common information about the patient’s disease. In case your manuscript is devoted to treatment challenge, describe the medication, its indications and usage specifications also with any potential side effects. A summary of data on the topic may be also presented. Briefly summarize the background of this case report. Describe the patient characteristics (such as the relevant demographics — age, gender, ethnicity, occupation) and their presenting concerns with relevant details of related past interventions. Also, present the medical, family, and psychosocial history including lifestyle and genetic information, other pertinent co-morbidities and interventions (other therapies including self-care).

Data structure for a case report should include the following sections:

  • symptoms of the disorder;
  • physical examination focused on the important findings including results from testing;
  • diagnostic methods (including laboratory testing, imaging results, questionnaires, referral diagnostic information);
  • diagnostic challenges (such as limited ability to complete an evaluation, patient availability, cultural) and diagnostic reasoning including other diagnoses considered;
  • interventions (such as pharmacologic, surgical, preventive, lifestyle, self-care);
  • administration and intensity of the intervention (including dosage, strength, duration, frequency);
  • prognostic characteristics.

Please describe the strengths and limitations of this case report including case management, and the scientific and medical literature related to this case report. Discuss the rationale for your conclusions such as potential causation and the ways this case might be generalized to a larger population. Finally, what are the main findings of this case report and what are the 'take-away' messages?

Peer Review Process

Procedure for peer reviewing the manuscripts submitted for publication in the journal

All the manuscripts submitted for publication in the journal are peer reviewed by two independent experts who are non-members of the Editorial Board of the journal.

The journal provides peer reviewing of all the submitted materials that are within the remit of the journal for expert evaluation. All peer reviewers are the acknowledged experts who specialize in the field relevant to the reviewed materials and have had publications relevant to the topic of the article being reviewed over the past 3 years. The peer reviews are stored in the publishing and editorial office for 5 years. 

The article is sent to reviewers without names or contact information of the authors (the so-called blind review).

Reviewers treat the article as confidential material and strictly follow the author’s right for non-disclosure of the data reported in the manuscript before the article is published. The reviewer may engage additional experts only with permission from the Editorial Board and on a confidential basis.

Reviewers’ comments are sent to the author without disclosing the reviewers’ identity. The Editorial Board makes a final decision whether to publish the manuscript or not after the peer reviews and authors’ answers were received. The Editorial Board sends copies of peer reviews or a substantiated rejection to the authors and also sends copies of the peer reviews to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation if a request has been received by the Editorial Board.

In some cases, the Editorial Board can send the article for an additional peer review, including statistical and methodological reviewing.

The Editorial Board constantly monitors the quality of peer review using the Russian version of the Review Quality Instrument questionnaire (Version 3.2), van Rooyen S., Black N., Godlee F. J Clin Epidemiol 1999;52:625-9.

The Editorial Board of the journal expects that the review process will help to:

  • prevent publishing poor-quality articles and reject the studies that have not been designed and conducted properly;
  • make sure that the data reported in the article are accurate, sufficient, and, where applicable, are presented in compliance with the current international standards CONSORT, STROBE, PRISMA, CARE, STARD (http://www.equator-network.org);
  • check whether the previous key studies in the corresponding field of science have been cited;
  • make sure that the authors have properly interpreted the data and drawn substantiated conclusions;

and, hence:

  • make a decision whether to publish an article or not and offer suggestions to the authors on how to improve the article (where necessary).

Publishing Ethics

Responsibilities of the Editorial Board

The Editorial Board of the journal complies with the ethical standards approved by the international scientific community. The Editorial Board uses the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors and recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Editorial decision-making

The Editorial Board is responsible for making decisions which of the submitted manuscripts will be accepted for publication. The Editorial Board makes the decision regarding a publication based on the journal’s policy, taking into account the current authors’ rights legislation and avoiding defamation and plagiarism. The editorial evaluation of the manuscript is independent of race, ethnicity and gender, religion, citizenship, or political views of the authors. Decision whether to publish an article or not is based exclusively on its scientific relevance, originality, clarity of presentation, and correspondence of the topic to journal’s specialization.

Confidentiality

All the Editorial Board members are responsible for disclosing any information about the submitted manuscript to individuals other than authors, peer reviewers, potential peer reviewers, or publishers.

Conflict of interest

The unpublished materials disclosed in the submitted manuscript cannot be used by the Editorial Board members for their own research without written permission from the authors.

Plagiarism, data falsification, and error correction

In case of an ethical complaint or a conflict situation regarding the manuscript or the published article, the Editorial Board should undertake reasonable countermeasures, together with the publisher, to restore the violated rights. If errors are revealed, the Editorial Board should assist in publishing corrections or refutations. Each reported case of unethical behavior will be considered, even if submitted several years after the article had been published.

Reviewer responsibilities

Contribution to editorial decision-making

The review process is aimed at facilitating the Editorial Board in editorial decision-making and may also help the author to improve the manuscript.

Timeliness (promptness)

If a reviewer selected by the Editorial Board does not feel competent for reviewing the manuscript or feels that it is not possible to meet the deadline of the review, he/she should promptly notify the Editorial Board and decline to perform the review.

Confidentiality

Any material under review should be regarded as confidential. The material should not be shared or discussed with anyone outside the review process unless approved by the editor.

Objectivity standards

Reviewing should be objective. Subjective critique of the author is not allowed. Reviewer’s opinion should be stated clearly and supported by arguments.

Confirmation of the resources

The reviewer is responsible for determining the cases when the relevant publications have not been cited in the manuscript or listed in the References section. Furthermore, the reviewer should determine whether all the statements, conclusions, and ideas borrowed from other publications had the corresponding references. If the reviewer detects that the manuscript under review significantly coincides with or is similar to another known publication, he/she should notify the Editorial Board.

Disclosure of information and conflict of interest

Non-disclosable information and ideas must be regarded as confidential and cannot be used for one’s personal advantage. Experts should not review manuscripts if they have any possible conflict of interest due to competitive, collaborative, or other relationships with the manuscript authors, as well as companies or institutions related to the manuscript.

Author responsibilities

Credibility and study standards

If the manuscript is based on an original study, the authors must submit the reliable results of their work and an objective discussion of significance of the study. The manuscript should contain all the key data, accurate description of the study details and references in order to ensure reproducibility of the results. Data falsification or the intentionally invalid statements in the manuscript are regarded as unethical and are inappropriate.

Data availability

The Editorial Board can request the authors to submit raw data in addition to the manuscript. The author must be ready to provide public access to these data, provided that public access to the data violates neither confidentiality of the research participants nor rights of an individual or a company owning these data.

Originality, plagiarism, and citing the sources

Authors must submit only original studies. Authors must properly and accurately acknowledge the work of others. Publications that had significantly contributed to preparing the study or underlied its design should also be acknowledged.

Multiple, duplicate, or competing publications

In general, materials describing the contents of the same study should not be published in more than one journal. Submitting the manuscript to more than one journal is considered unethical and inappropriate. Copyrighted materials that have already been published cannot be submitted to the journal. Furthermore, materials under consideration by the Editorial Board must not be submitted to be published elsewhere. When submitting an article, the author must inform the editor about all the previous presentations of the study that can be regarded as a duplicate publication. The author must notify the editor if the manuscript contains the information published by the author in previous reports or submitted for publication elsewhere. In this case, the new article should contain references to the previously published material.

Authorship criteria

Authorship is limited to the individuals that have made a significant contribution to 1) conception and design of the study; data acquisition and interpretation; 2) preparing the first draft of the article or editing the article to improve its quality; and 3) final approval of the manuscript for publication. Each author must participate in the study to an extent sufficient to take public responsibility for the corresponding part of the content of his/her article. Involvement consisting in funding or selecting material for the article is not sufficient reason for inclusion in the list of authors. General guidance of the research group is not sufficient for including in the list of authors.

All the authors must approve the final manuscript and its submission to the journal for publication.

Conflict of interest

When submitting an article to the journal, all authors must sign the form disclosing financial or any other substantive conflict of interest that can be considered to have influenced the study results or their interpretation. All funding sources of the submitted studies must be specified.

Involvement in the peer review process

After the peer review process, the article can be sent to the author for improvement. Authors should be actively involved in the review process: promptly answer the questions and, if necessary, correct the manuscript in accordance with the reviewer’s comments.

 

Editorial Board policy

When considering the received author's materials the editorial Board is guided by the following documents:

Preferably the journal publishes the results of studies conducted in accordance with the standard GCP (Good Clinical Practice).

Authors of manuscripts that do not meet our requirements receive a template email without detailing the claims.

If the manuscript is received again and again does not meet all the requirements for registration, it will be rejected without consideration.

After deciding on the proper design of the manuscript to all the requirements, the editorial Board decides on compliance or non-compliance of the manuscript to the profile of the journal.

The accepted manuscript will be sent to reviewers.

Publication of the article is possible only after receiving positive reviews.

Authors who have decided that their research meets the profile of the journal and agree with the policy of the editorial Board should prepare a manuscript in accordance with all the "requirements for manuscripts" and submit the manuscript to the editor through the electronic system of submission of articles on the journal's website.
