Research Studies Accepted for Publication
Man of Heal Journals accept editorials, case reports, experiences, and letters to the editor. These studies must be adherent to their specific guidelines provided by our journal within this page, and on the template documents you will fill out. All submissions must include a completed Cover Letter Template which can be found directly below.
Four types of manuscripts may be submitted:
Editorials should present an interesting, unique idea that can be explained using published scientific literature to explain your viewpoint. The goal of inspiring thought in scientists, as well as entertaining the general public. You are trying to prove or disprove a point using your evidence from the literature.
Case reports are intended to inform the reader about a single patient’s condition. Major aspects to cover include presentation, history, management, and literature review about the condition. Case rarity and hyper-specialization are not necessary. The editor may accept duplicate cases if the reasoning is sufficient, which is deemed by our editorial board.
Experiences are a chance for students to share their medicine stories in academics and volunteering, research, etc. The student must de-identify all other people mentioned within the experience.
Letter to the Editor
Letters to the Editor are typical responses to a published work, though they are welcome even if they are a new idea. The manuscript should be written as though the writer was talking to the editor. The main goal is to draw attention to a new idea clearly and concisely or show a difference of opinion on a topic the student holds dear.
Introduction: The Introduction should clearly state the problem or idea. General background information should be provided showing the importance of the topic and the gaps in the literature. Do not get carried away in the Introduction. Often the shorter and sweeter the Introduction, the better.
Discussion: The Discussion is essentially the findings you found about your topic from within the literature. This is where you validate your point. Though not all manuscript types require you to explain your search results, it often helps explain what others have found that goes against your viewpoint to show a decreased bias.
Conclusion: The Conclusion section typically is a short version of the entire paper. There is a built point or two from the introduction and a few major takeaways from the Discussion. It is also highly suggested that the author state the future of research on this topic to strengthen their argument about why their research topic and manuscript are so important.
