Occasionally, we may publish an open discussion on a selected article (opinions from the readers and/or invited experts together with the author's reply).
Your contribution should be written in either Slovenian or English. If Slovenian is used, English title and abstract should be included on the first page.
Occasionally, we may publish articles in German, Italian, Croatian, Bosnian, Serbian or Montenegrin language; like the Slovenian ones, they must include the title and abstract in English.
Figures should be prepared in grey-scale and included in line with text (layout). For their layout style "IMS Figure Content" should be used. Their width should be equal to the column width: 79 mm for two-columns and 167 mm for a single column. In the latter case a continuous section break should be used just before the figure and immediately after the figure caption. To layout the caption "IMS Caption" style should be used. For "Figure X" labels together with their consecutive numbers "IMS Figure Label" style should be used.
Exceptionally, you may submit the figures in separate files which should be named "FigX.TIF" where X represents the consecutive figure number. Figures may be prepared in GIF, JPG, TIF or PNG formats.
Only printed and other publicly available literature should be referred to. Literature should be formatted similarly as used in Index Medicus by US National Library of Medicine. Journal names should be abbreviated as in Index Medicus. For up to 3 authors all their names should be listed; if there are more, the first three should be listed followed by "et al." If the author is not known, "Anon." should be used in its place. References to yet unpublished, but already excepted work should include information on the journal; instead of page numbers "in press" should be used. Personal communications and unpublished work should not be included in the literature. Literature should be stated in the same language as it was written and originally published.
You may use Endnote to format the literature using the following style: IMS.ens. To use it, copy the file into "\Program Files\Endnote\Styles" folder.
