Brief Report

Brief Reports are submissions that will document original research in a more concise manner. These studies are ideal for studies/research that are in earlier phases, pilot studies, studies with inconclusive findings or statistically non-significant results, or simply concise studies. Research abstracts may also be considered for submission in this category, given that the study was completed and provides final results. Brief reports are similar in structure to original articles and will have the same sections, but will be written in a more concise manner.

Please see the author guidelienes tab for information on requirements for this category of submission.
