The Authors agree to transfer the ownership of copyright to Translational Medicine @ UniSa in the event the manuscript is published. Submission of the manuscript means that the paper is original and has not yet been totally or partially published and, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere.

All manuscript will be reviewed by Editorial Board members who reserve the right to reject the manuscript without entering the review process in the case that the topic, the format or ethical aspects are inappropriate.

Manuscripts are expected to comply with the instructions to authors which conform to the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Editors by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (www.icmje.org). Articles not conforming to international standards will not be considered for acceptance.

All illustrations should be original. Illustrations taken from other publications must be accompanied by the publisher's permission. For all articles that include information or clinical photographs relating to individual patients, written and signed consent from each patient to publish must also be made available if requested by the editorial staff.
