The manuscript should be ordered as follows:
1. Abstract: 200-250 word single paragraph in Spanish or English Languages and
2. Text (with title, author(s), email and institutional affiliation or
address), should not exceed 20 pages in length (10,000 words).
4. Bibliographics References.
5. Tables (with captions).
6. Figures (separate page to contain figure captions).
All manuscripts are to be double-spaced, with a 1-inch margin on all
sides of the page, on one side of good quality 8½-x-11 inch paper. Each
page should be numbered in the upper right corner. Two spaces should
follow the period at the end of a sentence. Underlining should be used
only where the material is to be set in italics, and then only if an
italics font is not available. End notes are not encouraged, but can be
inserted between the text and acknowledgments if required. Footnotes and
appendices are to be avoided. If material is important enough to be
included, it should be incorporated into the text.
Upon acceptance for publication, authors are to submit the final version
of the paper via email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or using
Central System for directly Article of Reflections, Case
Reports, Original Articles, Short Communication, Subject Revision,
Legislation and An Image in Forensic Oral Pathology. We use
Microsoft Word for Windows as our primary word-processing software, but
our IBM-compatible equipment can read all popular word processing files.
Please do not submit disks in lieu of the required original manuscript
and two copies.
Headings: Primary heads should be flush left and typed in all capital
letters. Secondary heads should be flush left, with initial capital
letters on all significant words, and set in italics. Tertiary heads
should be part of the paragraph, indented, with initial capital letters
on all significant words, and italicized.
Metric System: All measurements must be in metric units. Specific
measurements should be abbreviated without periods (6 km). If used to
begin a sentence, or in general terms, measurements are written out.
Some metric measurements, such as hectares and kilometers, remain
obscure to many readers. If English equivalents (e.g., acres and miles)
seem required for clarity, they should be indicated parenthetically
following their appearance as metric measures.
Numbers and Dates: Numbers from one to twenty are spelled out in the
text. Numbers from 21 upwards are written as numerals except for numbers
used in an approximate sense, or when beginning a sentence. Ordinal
numbers (first, second, etc.) are always spelled out. These rules are
modified to impose consistency in sentences where their strict
application would lead to a mixture of forms. Dates should be expressed
in the following forms: 1980s, twentieth century, 1980-1990, January 13,
1990. Mathematical notations and radiocarbon dates are to be given
according to the style used by American Antiquity, except that B.P.
dates will be allowed as substitutes for B.C. dates so long as the
conversion of 1950 years is used. Lab numbers must always accompany
radiocarbon dates and any corrections made to the date(s) reported by
the laboratory must be listed in addition to (not instead of) the
reported date(s). Old Style (Julian) dates must be accompanied by New
Style (Gregorian) equivalents.
Quotations: Quotations of five lines or more should usually be set off
from the text and indented. Shorter quotations should not be set off.
Authors are responsible for accuracy, correct attribution, and legal
permissions to publish any material submitted. In other matters
concerning quotations, the uses of italics, capitalization, hyphenation,
abbreviations, ellipses, and accents, refer to The Chicago Manual of
Special Usages: The Forensic Oral Pathology Journal - FOPJ (eISSN 2027-7628) will adopt the practice of referring to individuals of tribal,
ethnic, or linguistic groups by the normal English or Spanish plural (e.g.,
"six Penobscots"). When used as adjectives or when referring to the
proper names of such entities, they may remain in singular form. Foreign
words are italicized, but foreign words that have come into common usage
in Spanish or English (e.g., in situ) are not. Foreign place names are
not italicized. Insert a comma before the "and" in a series of three or
Citations in Text: Citations must appear parenthetically, as has become
the custom in anthropological literature. If two or more citation dates
appear together for one author, separate them in calendrical order with
commas. If two or more references by the same author(s) are listed with
the same year, use a, b, c, etc. to distinguish them. If three or more
authors are listed, use "et al." following the first author's name. If
two or more citations appear within one set of parentheses, separate
them with semicolons, listing authors alphabetically first, and
chronologically, second: (Able 1984:23; Baker 1983, 1985; Clinton 1996).
Use a colon to separate date of publication from additional information,
such as pages, figures, or tables specified. Provide the date of
completion for an unpublished manuscript, rather than using "n.d."
Provide the date of submission for a manuscript that is in press. Works
submitted but not accepted should be treated as unpublished manuscripts.
Personal communications should be cited as such, with a date if possible.
However, they are not listed in the reference section.
Tables: A short descriptive title or heading should be placed above each
table. Any explanatory material essential to the understanding of the
table should be incorporated into the text or placed as footnotes in the
table, using superscripts a, b, c, etc. All tables must be mentioned in
the text and numbered sequentially in the order cited in the text (see
Guidelines for Artwok for more info).
Figures: All illustrative material will be designated figures and
numbered consecutively. All figures must be mentioned in the text.
Figure numbers and captions must be submitted on separate sheets to
allow typesetting. Both photographs and line drawings must be of high
quality. Freehand or typewritten lettering is not acceptable. Authors
are responsible for supplying both photographs and line drawings at
sizes that will allow them to be printed with a caption in an area no
larger than 6 x 8 inches. Photographs must be submitted with a glossy
finish. Line drawings should be reduced to the required format by
photographic, photostatic, or other high-quality means. Authors not
having access to reducing equipment may submit original drawings for
reduction by special arrangement with the editor. The figure number
should be printed lightly, in pencil, on the back of each illustration.
Notations should be made in the left hand margin of the text as to the
preferred location of figures (see Guidelines for Artwok for more info).
Bibliographics References: Authors are responsible for the accuracy and
completeness of the references cited. All references cited in the text (except
for personal communications) must be included in the list, and all
references in the list must be cited in the text. Citations should be
presented at the end of the manuscript in "as and when they appear in
the text" order (Vancouver
System). Author names are inverted: surname
first followed by initials. All authors should be quoted up to a maximum
of six followed by et al. Use initials for first and middle names. Title
of medical periodicals should he abbreviated according to Index Medicus.
When referring to authors, use last name and initials. When referring to
publishers, do not include words such as "Company, Inc., Publishers."
For book references, list the name of the publishing company and the
place of publication. If the city of publication is not well known,
include the state. Use initial capital letters on all significant words
in a title. Capitalization of foreign titles follows the custom of the
language of the citation. Edition of the book within paranthesis For e.g.:
(3 Ed.) The volume number and first and last page numbers for each
reference should be provided. Papers in press may be simply referred to
in the text. Authors must obtain permission from the individual
concerned to quote his or her unpublished work.
Proofs. Proofs will be sent to authors for correction of typographical
and editorial errors. The letter do not include copy editing changes
made in the manuscript to bring it into conformity with the specific
style requirements of the Forensic Oral Pathology Journal - FOPJ (eISSN 2027-7628) No changes or additions in content may be made. Corrected
proofs must generally be returned to the editor within one week of
Reprints. Up to 20 reprints may be purchased by authors at a cost of U$
10.00 per page. Most leaves count as two pages, and the number of pages
per article will be multiplied times the number of reprints requested in
calculating charges. An opportunity to order reprints is provided when
page proofs are returned.
