  • PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS 
    Manuscripts must be in "Times New Roman" font-size 10, with double spacing. Please arrange the manuscript as follows: Title page, abstract, introduction, methods, results and discussion, and references, tables, figure captions and figures. Number all pages consecutively at the bottom, beginning with the title page. Figures and tables must be cited in the manuscript.
    It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the word processor used. The text should be in single-column format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Most formatting codes will be removed and replaced on processing the article. In particular, do not use the word processor's options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts etc. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs and not spaces to align columns. The electronic text should be prepared in a way very similar to that of conventional manuscripts. Note that source files of figures, tables and text graphics will be required whether or not you embed your figures in the text. See also the section on electronic artwork. To avoid unnecessary errors, you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor. Lines must be numbered consecutively throughout the manuscript and all pages must be numbered.
     
    MANUSCRIPT STRUCTURE
    Subdivision - Numbered Sections: Divide the article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering for internal cross-referencing also: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.
    Introduction: State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
    Material and methods: Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
    Results and discussion: Results should be clear and concise. Discussions should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
    Conclusion: The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.
    Appendices: If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.
     
    Title page information
    • Title: Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. A short running title not exceeding 40 characters must be provided.
    • Author names and affiliations: Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name. The journal reserves the right to ask for the contribution of each author to an article.
    • Corresponding author: Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that telephone and fax numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address. Contact details must be kept up to date by the corresponding author.
    • Present/permanent address: If an author has moved since the work described in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a 'Present address' (or 'Permanent address') may be indicated as a footnote to that author's name. The address at which the author actually did the work must be retained as the main, affiliation address. Superscript Arabic numerals are used for such footnotes.
     
    Abstract: A concise and structured abstract is required under the headings like objectives, methods, results, and conclusions. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References and non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. The abstract should not exceed 250 words.
    Graphical abstract: A Graphical abstract is required for this journal. It should summarize the contents of the article in a concise, pictorial form designed to capture the attention of a wide readership online. Authors must provide images that clearly represent the work described in the article. Graphical abstracts should be submitted as a separate file in the online submission system. Image size: Images should be clear enough and of appropriate size (5 inch × 7 inch or larger) for better reproduction. If scanned, they should be scanned at minimum of 300 dpi. Color images must be CMYK. Line art drawing must have a minimum resolution of 1200 dpi. Permission to reproduce any borrowed image must be obtained from the author and the publisher. Preferred file types: TIFF, and JPEG files.
    Keywords: A maximum of 5 keywords are required after the abstract.
    Acknowledgements: Acknowledgements should be given in a separate section at the end of the article before the references.

Title: Awareness on the use of neutral zone technique for fabrication of complete dentures
Section: Research Article
Category: Pharmacology
Country: India
View Article

Background: The stability of complete dentures is influenced by the surrounding neuromuscular system and amount of residual alveolar bone available in the oral cavity. The retention and stability of complete denture become unfavorable when ridge resorption gets more severe, especially in the mandible. The neutral zone technique is an alternative approach for the construction of stable mandibular complete dentures. It is most effective where there are a highly atrophic ridge and a history of denture instability. The technique aims to construct a denture that is shaped by muscle function and is in harmony with the surrounding oral structures. The technique is by no means new but is a valuable one. Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the knowledge and awareness among dental students on the use of neutral zone technique for the fabrication of complete dentures. Materials and Methods: A self-administered questionnaire containing 10 questions will be prepared and circulated among 100 dental students belonging to two different colleges. Data collection and analysis were done based on frequencies and percentage values. Results: Among 100 participants, 13% think that neutral zone is not important for the fabrication of complete dentures, 52% think that that it is important for the complete denture fabrication whereas 35% are not sure about its importance in fabrication. About 10% practice the neutral zone fabrication technique for the complete denture, 75% do not practice this technique whereas 15% are not sure. Conclusion: From the results obtained in this survey, the knowledge and awareness about the neutral zone technique seems to be just above average and hence there is reduced incidence of practice of this technique. Thus, there is still in need for continued education about the technique and a need for motivation to adopt it in practice.

Title: An investigation of the knowledge and attitude of residents at Arak University of Medical Sciences on the principles of medical recording and medical malpractices
Section: Research Article
Category: Pharmacology
Country: India
View Article

Background and Objectives: Given that, medical records contain important and essential information about patient care and are also considered a rich asset in medical science, this study sought to assess the knowledge and attitudes of residents at the Arak University of Medical Sciences as effective people in the quality of filing the records concerning principles of medical recording and medical malpractices. Materials and Methods: The present research is a descriptive study that evaluates the knowledge and attitude of 83 staff members working at Arak University of Medical Sciences. The required data were collected using a researcher-made questionnaire. Furthermore, data analysis was performed using descriptive and inferential methods in SPSS software version 21. Results: A total of 30.8% of the residents in the 1st and 2nd years (hereafter, postgraduate year [PGY]-1 and 2) and 45% of the residents in the 3rd and 4th years (hereafter, PGY-3 and 4) considered themselves as fully informed of medical malpractice rules. About 36.5% of PGY-1 and 2 had no information about the release sheets. The level of awareness and knowledge of PGY-1 and 2 on nursing reports was 38.5%, whereas in PGY-3 and 4, it was 41.9%. Moreover, 69.2% of PGY-1 and 2 and 48.4% of PGY-3 and 4 agreed that correct medical recording would help improve the quality of the diagnosis. Conclusion: Given that, the knowledge and attitudes of the residents toward the principles of medical recording and legal rules are weak, it is recommended that workshops be held in the field of recording and professional medical rules.

Title: Stressors of clinical education in operating room students
Section: Research Article
Category: Pharmacology
Country: India
View Article

Introduction: It is important to recognize clinical stressors to improve and enhance the learning level of trainees and interns and the importance of learning clinical education. This study was conducted to evaluate the stressors of clinical education in operating room students of Zahedan School of Nursing and Midwifery in 2017. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional descriptive-analytic study was performed on 78 students of Zahedan Nursing and Midwifery Faculty who had passed at least five training units. The questionnaire was used by Raji et al. and Sarvey et al., and its validity and reliability were confirmed. For data analysis, SPSS 20 was used, and descriptive statistics, mean, standard deviation, Spearman test, and t-test were also used. Results: In this study, semester four students had more unpleasant emotions than semester six and eight students, but in the stressful areas of humiliating experiences, clinical environment, and interpersonal communication, semester six and eight students experienced more stress. In relation to sex, females in all domains had more stress than males, and in the 21-year- old age group and younger, unpleasant emotions and humiliating experiences compared to those over 21 years were higher, but clinical environment stressors and interpersonal communication in 21-year-old age group and older experiences more stress than 21-year-old age group and younger. Conclusion: The study showed that students have moderate levels of stress, and according to the stress areas in the questionnaire and information obtained, it is necessary for colleges, universities, and training hospitals to plan to reduce the stress level of students and eliminate stressors as much as possible.
