Introducing the “Clinical and Medical Images”: Call for papers

Medical images play an important role in many areas of medicine and are central to some medical specialities, such as radiology and pathology.

Starting in 2024, Acta Biomedica welcomes the submission of high-quality articles in various fields of clinical and medical images to offer a platform to share leading expert experiences centred on patient care.

Clinical and Medical Images are simply well-organized graphical representations of a specific case description.

The title should be short, specific and informative. An abstract is not required, but providing 3 keywords may allow the article searching. Images are limited to one, single or multi-paneled, with a maximum of  400 words for case description, diagnosis and discussion, and 3-5 references.

Additional article structure includes: conflict of interest statement, funding, ethical approval (if no approval is required, this must be stated), and acknowledgements/dedication.

Details that might disclose the identity of the subjects under the study should be omitted. A document enclosing the patient’s agreement to publish all the necessary information must be obtained. If the participant has died, then consent for publication must be sought from the participant's next of kin. This documentation must be made available to Editors on request and will be treated confidentially.

Manuscripts should be double-spaced. Please number each page. Authors (not more than 3) should upload separate files for the title page and the manuscript. Each author's full first name and surname should be followed by his or her department, institution, city and country. It is editorial policy to list only one author for correspondence. Only original, high-quality images will be considered for publication, provided they do not contain material that has been submitted or published elsewhere. All articles will be carefully selected and peer-reviewed.

Article structure in brief:

- Title and authors  list (maximum 3)
- Abstract: Not required.
- Keywords: 3
- Words limit (case description, diagnosis and discussion): 400
- References: 3-5
- Images are limited to one, single or multi-panelled (3 images or 2 images+1 table)
- Conflict of interest statement, funding and ethical statement/consent.

We hope this new editorial initiative will interest you and look forward to your contributions. The Editorial Office of Acta Biomedica (Dr Valeria Ceci;  E-mail: [email protected] ) is available for further information.

Sincerely yours

Maurizio Vanelli
Editor-in-Chief of Acta Biomedica
