PUBLISHING PRINCIPLES

General Guidelines

Structure and Flow: At Openventio, we recognize the value of organized and logical presentation in research articles. While the modern AIMRAD format (Aims, Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion) serves as a strong foundation, we understand that flexibility is key. We encourage authors to adapt the structure to best suit their research and ensure clear communication of findings. Different article types like meta-analyses or case reports may benefit from non-linear structures, and we welcome innovative approaches that enhance reader understanding.

Embracing the Power of Technology: The digital age has opened doors for enriching research publications. Authors can enhance their work by incorporating supplementary materials, interactive elements, and cross-linking to relevant resources. It is important to note that all supplemental materials should be submitted alongside the primary manuscript for peer review.

Reporting Guidelines

Rigor and Transparency: Openventio upholds accurate and detailed reporting for all research published in our journals. We advocate for authors to adhere to relevant reporting guidelines like Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) for trials, STrengthening the Reporting of OBservational studies in Epidemiology (STROBE) for observational studies, Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) for systematic reviews, STAndards for the Reporting of Diagnostic accuracy studies (STARD) for diagnostic accuracy studies and Meta-analysis Of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (MOOSE) for for reporting meta-analyses of observational studies. These guidelines offer structured frameworks that ensure essential information is presented, allowing for thorough evaluation by editors, reviewers, and readers.

Review Manuscripts with Confidence: Authors crafting review manuscripts should actively document their search methodology, including data source selection, extraction, and synthesis processes. This level of transparency is crucial, especially for systematic reviews, to build trust and enable readers to effectively assess the evidence presented.

Valuable Resources: Seeking guidance on reporting guidelines? Explore resources like the EQUATOR Network and the NLM’s Research Reporting Guidelines and Initiatives. These platforms offer invaluable tools and expertise to help authors adhere to best practices and deliver high-quality research publications.

STYLE GUIDE: CRAFTING CLARITY AND CONSISTENCY

This section outlines essential stylistic guidelines for authors contributing to our publication. Adhering to these guidelines ensures clarity, consistency, and professional presentation throughout your manuscript.

Grammar

  • Clarity and Conciseness:¬†Strive for clear and concise sentences that effectively convey your message.¬†Avoid overly complex sentence structures and ambiguous wording.
  • Subject-Verb Agreement:¬†Ensure your subject and verb agree in number and tense.
  • Tense Consistency:¬†Choose a consistent tense for your work,¬†shifting only when necessary for clarity or emphasis.
  • Active Voice:¬†Generally,¬†prioritize the active voice over the passive voice for clearer and more engaging writing.


Punctuation

  • Commas:¬†Use commas judiciously to set off introductory phrases,¬†clauses,¬†and non-restrictive appositives.¬†Follow established guidelines for comma placement in dates,¬†titles,¬†and academic degrees.
  • Hyphens:¬†Hyphenate compound words as specified in guidelines,¬†such as noun-adverb combinations and compound adjectives before nouns.
  • Ellipses:¬†Use ellipses sparingly and correctly to indicate omitted material at the beginning or end of a passage.


Capitalization

  • Specificity:¬†Capitalize proper nouns and specific entities.¬†Use lowercase for general terms and concepts.
  • Titles:¬†Capitalize titles before names but not after.¬†Follow guidelines for capitalization in headers and titles,¬†including hyphenated words.


Numbers and Dates

  • Numerals vs. Words:¬†Primarily use numerals for numbers,¬†except for numbers at the beginning of a sentence,¬†titles,¬†common fractions,¬†or idiomatic expressions.
  • Date Format:¬†Express full dates as “August 21,¬†2001” within the text and references.
  • Number-Word Combinations:¬†Use numerals for large rounded numbers combined with words for clarity.
  • Fractions:¬†Write common fractions as words,¬†using hyphens only when they function as adjectives.


Abbreviations and Acronyms

Define all abbreviations and acronyms upon first use, and use them consistently thereafter.

Non-English Elements

Italicize non-English words and phrases, and provide translations upon first use if necessary. Use appropriate accent marks.

Medical Indexes

Follow the AMA Manual of Style guide for referencing medical indexes and terminology.


TERMINOLOGY

  • Drug Nomenclature:¬†Prioritize the use of generic names for drugs,¬†devices,¬†and other products,¬†reserving brand names solely for situations where the specific trade name holds direct relevance to your discussion.
  • Microorganism Identification: Adhere to taxonomic conventions:¬†kingdom,¬†family,¬†and genus levels appear in Roman type,¬†while individual species and subspecies names are italicized and begin with a capital letter.¬†Each taxonomic designation,¬†down to the genus level,¬†can be used independently.


Abbreviations & Acronyms:

  • Acronym Clarification:¬†Introduce each acronym with its full name within parentheses during its first appearance in the text.¬†Subsequently,¬†use only the acronym.¬†Opt for writing out uncommon or cumbersome acronyms throughout the manuscript unless they appear frequently.
  • Strategic Abbreviation Usage:¬†Avoid introducing acronyms in subheadings.¬†Instead,¬†spell out the term followed by the acronym in parentheses within the subsequent text.
  • Plural Acronyms: Write the plural form of an acronym without an apostrophe (e.g., Master of Business Administration programs, not MBA’s programs).
  • Location Abbreviations: Spell out state, territory, and possession names when used alone. When following a city name, use the abbreviation without periods (e.g., New York, NY). Only use state postal codes with ZIP codes followed by country.
  • Latin Abbreviations:¬†Limit the use of Latin abbreviations like etc.,¬†e.g.,¬†et al.,¬†and i.e.¬†to references and citations.
  • Date and Month Formats:¬†Generally,¬†write out months and avoid abbreviations.
  • Publication Title Abbreviations:¬†Follow the American National Standard for Information Sciences guidelines for abbreviating specific words in titles (e.g.,¬†Ct for Court,¬†Hwy for Highway).
  • State Abbreviations:¬†Spell out state names when used alone; abbreviate them when used with city names.


UNITS OF MEASUREMENTS: ENSURING PRECISION AND CONSISTENCY

Openventio emphasizes the use of the International System of Units (SI) for reporting quantitative data within your manuscript. This standardized system promotes clarity and global understanding across diverse scientific disciplines. Here are some key principles to adhere to:

  • SI Unit Preference:¬†Prioritize expressing quantitative values using SI units.¬†Familiar examples include meters (m) for length,¬†kilograms (kg) for mass,¬†and seconds (s) for time.
  • Unit Case and Abbreviations: Generally,¬†write SI units in lowercase (e.g.,¬†kilogram).¬†However,¬†an exception exists for the degree Celsius (¬įC).¬†Abbreviations for units typically follow lowercase conventions,¬†with some exceptions noted in relevant style guides.
  • Exponent Usage:¬†For denoting area or volume,¬†favor exponents (e.g.,¬†m¬≤) over abbreviations like “cu” or “sq.” This enhances readability and consistency.
  • Pluralization:¬†Although SI units themselves are not pluralized,¬†their expressions remain unaltered for plural quantities.¬†For instance,¬†both singular and plural masses are expressed as “kilograms.”
  • Drug Dosage:¬†Traditionally,¬†express drug dosages in conventional metric mass units,¬†primarily milligrams (mg).


QUANTITATION: RIGOR AND CLARITY IN DATA PRESENTATION

Study Design and Statistics

Openventio prioritizes the transparency and accuracy of statistical methodology and data analysis within your manuscript. To ensure robust research findings and effective communication, adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Clear Description: Provide a comprehensive description of your study design, including sample size, participant characteristics, randomization procedures, and blinding protocols. Clearly outline the specific statistical methods employed for data analysis, justifying your choices and referencing relevant statistical tests.
  2. Data Presentation: Present your quantitative findings clearly and concisely. Utilize tables and figures effectively to summarize and illustrate key results, ensuring clarity and avoiding redundancy with the text. Employ descriptive statistics appropriately, and focus on presenting measures of central tendency and variability relevant to your research question.
  3. Statistical Significance: Report findings of statistical tests accurately, interpreting p values and confidence intervals with caution. Avoid overstating the significance of results or drawing unwarranted conclusions based solely on statistical significance.
  4. Power Analysis: Consider incorporating a power analysis into your research design and reporting its results within your manuscript. This demonstrates the ability to detect statistically significant effects with the chosen sample size, enhancing the credibility of your findings.


Mathematical Composition

Openventio encourages the use of mathematical equations and formulas to enhance the precision and clarity of your manuscript. For consistent and professional presentation, follow these guidelines:

  1. Equation Numbering:¬†Number all equations consecutively using Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses,¬†placed to the right of the equation at the bottom line.¬†Refer to equations within the text using their corresponding numbers (e.g.,¬†“as shown in Equation 3”).
  2. Formatting: Clearly define all symbols and variables used in equations within the text or a dedicated symbol list. Ensure proper spacing and alignment within equations, using parentheses, brackets, and braces judiciously for clarity.
  3. Font and Style: Use a standard mathematical font for equations, distinct from the regular text font. Italicize variables and constants, and employ boldface for vectors and matrices when applicable.
  4. Software and Notation: Specify the software or program used to generate equations or mathematical symbols, if relevant. Adhere to established notation conventions within your field of study to maintain consistency and understanding.
