Manuscripts are evaluated on the basis that they present new insight into the investigated topic and are likely to contribute to research progress or a change in clinical practice. It is understood that all authors listed on a manuscript have agreed to its submission. The signature of the corresponding author on the letter of submission signifies that these conditions have been fulfilled. Received manuscripts will initially be examined by the IJAC editorial office and those deemed to have insufficient grounds for publication may be rejected without external evaluation. Manuscripts not prepared in the advised style described below will be sent back to authors for correction. The authors will be notified with the reference number once the manuscript has been assigned to an Editor. The assigned manuscripts will be sent to 2-4 independent experts for scientific evaluation. The evaluation process commonly takes an average of 1-2 months.
