Graphical abstracts

Beginning with the 1/2023 issue, the journal Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine requires also visual abstracts (also known as graphical abstracts) for papers accepted for publication.

Such abstract is a single, concise, pictorial and visual summary of the main findings of the article. It should be a figure that is specially designed for the purpose, which captures the content of the article for readers at a single glance. Authors must provide an original image that clearly represents the work described in the paper. Graphical abstracts should be submitted as a separate file in the submission system as Figure 0. For ease of browsing, the graphical abstract should have a clear start and end, preferably "reading" from top to bottom or left to right. Try to reduce distracting and cluttering elements as much as possible. No additional text, outline or synopsis should be included. Any text or label must be part of the image file. Please do not use unnecessary white space or a heading “graphical abstract” within the image file. The text within the graphical abstract should be used sparingly. The graphical abstract for a paper should not include data items of any type; all the content should be in a graphical form.

Allowed data formats: for VECTOR graphics (charts, diagrams, etc.) – pdf, eps, ai, cdr (if the graphic was created using MS Office programs, source files of a given program are very helpful: doc, docx, ppt, pptx, xls, xlsx); for BITMAP graphics (photos, screenshots) – tif, jpg, png, bmp (min. 1200 pixels of the base in the drawing with the width of one column and 2400 for the width of two columns). The minimal resolution of tif, jpg and png files is 300 dpi. Regarding text within the graphical abstract, its size should be 12–16 points (smaller fonts will not be legible online).

The editorial office of Adv Clin Exp Med does not offer graphical or DTP services – the authors have to provide graphical abstracts in a finished form. Neither one of the figures from the manuscript (e.g., a graph or diagram) nor a PRISMA diagram cannot simultaneously serve as a graphical abstract).

Editorial System crash

On August 23, 2022, one of the Editorial System servers crashed. The failure forced the recovery of data from the last backup, which was made on the night of August 18 to August 19.

We hope that due to the weekend time there was a little activity by the editorial office. Unfortunately, all operations performed in the system between 19.08 and 22.08 have to be performed again. Due to the monitoring of system messages, we have information about the submitted manuscripts and reviews at that time - we will notify these authors and reviewers in individual messages.

If you provided a revision of the manuscript or a review between 22:00 GMT on August 18 and 8:00 GMT on August 23, please resubmit it – such action has not been registered in the system and the uploaded files have been lost.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this situation.

 

New call for submissions

Application of stem cells in human medicine – from basic science research to clinical trials

Medicine in the twenty-first century is closely associated with stem cell research, based on advanced in vitro analyzes, the use of model animals, and their application in clinical trials. Experimental research requires understanding the physiological and morphological properties of stem cells and analyzing their ability to divide and differentiate into other cell types. The best-known stem cells are those derived from bone marrow and umbilical cord blood. However, in recent years, stem cells have been discovered in, for example, adipose tissue and Wharton jelly. Stem cells isolated from these tissues, once properly differentiated, are increasingly used for the treatment of bone and neurodegenerative diseases. In recent years, the number of therapies using stem cells has increased significantly. The ability of stem cells to differentiate makes them an increasingly common therapeutic tool in regenerative and reconstructive medicine.

New Scopus CiteScore

We proudly inform that our Scopus CiteScore has risen from 2.7 for the year 2020 to 3.0 for the year 2021. This positive change is a results of our constant striving for excellence in scientific publishing – but also of the activity of authors who cite papers published in Advances in Clinical in Experimental Medicine. Thank you so much – this is our joint success!

 

DOAJ

The editorial office of Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine proudly informs that the journal has been accepted into Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and is indexed in this database. This fact confirms our integrity regarding publication ethics and clear rules for authors.

 

Research letter

A Research letter is a brief, but scientifically important study which is basically a shorter form of Original paper. The text structure (Background – Objectives – Material and methods – Discussion – Limitations – Conslusions) remains the same. Research letters are peer reviewed and subject to stringent editorial review as well. They are also indexed in all databases, including PubMed and Scopus, and the number of points assigned for such publication is identical as for original papers. But a research letter contains a maximum of 1500 words, as opposed to 3500 words in an original article, and at most 2 tables or figures (2 tables and 2 figures at most in one paper). The number of authors and the number of references are not limited.


It is important to note that:

1) research letters are priority papers in our journal and the waiting time for publication is shorter;

2) the article processing charge is twice lower than that for an Original paper (350 EUR/1500 PLN instead of 700 EUR/3000 PLN). 

 

Our support for Ukraine

The 19th-century Ukrainian Romantic poet, Taras Shevchenko (1814–1861), wrote this poem in 1845:

 

Як умру, то поховайте
Мене на могилі
Серед степу широкого
На Вкраїні милій,
Щоб лани широкополі,
І Дніпро, і кручі
Було видно, було чути,
Як реве ревучий…

When I die, let me rest
Buried in a grave
On the wide steppe
In my dear Ukraine,
Where the broad-rimmed fields
And the Dnipro, and cliffs
Are visible, so I can hear
How the roaring roars.

 

Shevchenko’s “Testament” remains an anthem for Ukrainian national sentiment. It’s a poem of longing, written by a man who is separated from his native rivers, cliffs, and steppe. It shows off the alliterative power of the Ukrainian language.

 

After a Russian-language Odessa poet, Boris Khersonsky, began to write poems in Ukrainian in solidarity with the 2013–2014 Maidan “Revolution of Dignity,” he wrote a version of “Testament.”

 

Як умру, то не ховайте
мене на могилi.
Хай несуть мене до неба
полум’янi хвилi.
Хай розвiє сiрий попiл
повiтряна сила,
бо йому, щоб полетiти,
не потрiбнi крила.
Бо нема землi на свiтi,
щоб назвав своею.

When I die, don’t let me rest
Buried in a grave
Let the waves of fire carry
Me up to the sky.
Let the windy powers dispel
The gray ash, let it scatter
For, no wings are necessary
For this ash to fly.
For no land in all the world
Can be called my own.

Changes in publication rules

Please note that since October 1, 2021 after the article is published as ahead of print, it cannot be changed (which encompasses also affiliations and authors’ order). Such stipulation stems from requirements set by scientific databases in which the papers published in Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine are stored.

If the article is already accessible online as registered preprint on any website or in any database, and has been already assigned with a DOI, such information, together with an URL of the registered preprint, has to appear in the cover letter.
