Manuscript Submission

Online Manuscript Submission

The Journal of Neuro-Oncology has a fully web-enabled manuscript submission and review system.

This system offers authors the option of tracking in real time the review process of their manuscripts.

The online manuscript and review system offers easy and straightforward log-in and submission

procedures. It supports a wide range of submission file formats, including Word, WordPerfect, RTF, TXT and LaTeX for article text and TIFF, EPS, PS, GIF, JPEG and PPT for figures. PDF is not a recommended format.

Manuscripts should be submitted to:

http://neon.edmgr.com Authors are requested to download the Consent to Publish and Transfer of Copyright form from this system. Please send a completed and signed form either by mail or fax to the Journal of NeuroOncology Office.

NOTE: By using the online manuscript submission and review system, it is NOT necessary to submit the manuscript also as printout + disk. In case you encounter any difficulties while submitting your manuscript online, please get in touch with the responsible Editorial Assistant by clicking on "CONTACT US" from the toolbar.

Electronic figures Electronic versions of your figures must be supplied. For vector graphics, EPS is the preferred format.

For bitmapped graphics, TIFF is the preferred format. The following resolutions are optimal: line figures dpi; photographs - 300 dpi; screen dumps - leave as is. Colour figures can be submitted in the RGB colour system. Font-related problems can be avoided by using standard fonts such as Times Roman, Courier and Helvetica.

Colour figures Colour figures may be printed at the author’s expense. Please indicate at submission which figures should be printed in colour, the number of colour pages you prefer and to which address we can send the invoice. In addition, please specify if figures are to appear together on a colour page. Our charges are USD 750 for the first page and USD 500 for each subsequent page. In the journal's web version, colour images are published free of charge. Therefore, please indicate at submission which figures should only appear in colour in the web version.

Language The journal's language is English. British English or American English spelling and terminology may be used, but either one should be followed consistently throughout the article.We appreciate any efforts that you make to ensure that the language is corrected before submission. This will greatly improve the legibility of your paper if English is not your first language.

Ethics When reporting experiments on human subjects, indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional or regional) or with the Helsinki Declaration (1964, amended in 1975 and 1983) of the World Medical Association. Do not use patients‘ names, initials, or hospital numbers, especially in any illustrative material. When reporting experiments on animals, indicate whether the institution‘s or the National Research Council‘s guide for, or any national law on, the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.

Manuscript Presentation Please double-space all material, including notes and references. Quotations of more than 40 words should be set off clearly, either by indenting the left-hand margin or by using a smaller typeface. Use double quotation marks for direct quotations and single quotation marks for quotations within quotations and for words or phrases used in a special sense.

Number the pages consecutively with the first page containing:

• running head (shortened title)

• title

• author(s)

• affiliation(s)

• full address for correspondence, including telephone and fax number and e-mail address Abstract Please provide a short


of 100 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.

Key words Please provide 5 to 10 key words or short phrases in alphabetical order.

Abbreviations Abbreviations should be explained at first occurrence. For all measurements standard abbreviations should be used (see ``Style Manuals'' below).

Article types The journal welcomes original reports dealing with both Laboratory Investigations and Clinical Studies related to tumors of the nervous system. Letters to the Editor may also be considered. Letters should follow the general rules, except that a separate title page and summary are not required. A table or figure may be included; if references are needed, they should follow the format given below.

Occasionaly the journal will also publish Review articles on selected topics. The section Images in Neuro-Oncology publishes original and instructive images of diagnostic findings (magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, pathology and others) in patients with primary or secondary brain tumors or neurological complications of cancer. Images should be accompanied by a brief description of the case and the demonstrated findings.


All photographs, graphs and diagrams should be referred to as a 'Figure' and they should be numbered consecutively (1, 2, etc.). Multi-part figures ought to be labelled with lower case letters (a, b, etc.).

Please insert keys and scale bars directly in the figures. Relatively small text and great variation in text sizes within figures should be avoided as figures are often reduced in size. Figures may be sized to fit approximately within the column(s) of the journal. Provide a detailed legend (without abbreviations) to each figure, refer to the figure in the text and note its approximate location in the margin. Please place the legends in the manuscript after the references.


Each table should be numbered consecutively (1, 2, etc.). In tables, footnotes are preferable to long explanatory material in either the heading or body of the table. Such explanatory footnotes, identified by superscript letters, should be placed immediately below the table. Please provide a caption (without abbreviations) to each table, refer to the table in the text and note its approximate location in the margin.

Finally, please place the tables after the figure legends in the manuscript.

Section Headings First-, second-, third-, and fourth-order headings should be clearly distinguishable but not numbered.

Appendices Supplementary material should be collected in an Appendix and placed before the Notes and Reference sections.

Notes Please use footnotes rather than endnotes. Notes should be indicated by consecutive superscript numbers in the text. A source reference note should be indicated by means of an asterisk after the title.

This note should be placed at the bottom of the first page.

Cross-referencing In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the reference number in square brackets. When there are more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by et al.


Winograd [1] Bullen and Bennett [2] Acknowledgements Acknowledgements of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the References.
