Dementia & Neuropsychologia-Instruções para autores

Dementia & Neuropsychologia is a journal that follows the guidelines of the ICMJE, (International Committee of Medical Journal: Uniform requirements for manuscripts submitted to biomedical journals Editors October 2005 update; www.icjmje. org).
Follow these instructions:

• TITLE PAGE - include article's title and authors' names. Title should be concise and descriptive, with essential information on the article's content. Name of the author should include the first name. At the bottom of that page indicate: the name of the department and institution, city and country in which the study was done; the graduate degree of each author and their institutional affiliation; grant supports acknowledged; name and address (postal and electronic) for mail.

• ABSTRACT - Abstract of original papers or short communications should be structured and should contain these items: background, objective(s), methods, results and conclusions. Abstracts of case reports or reviews may be unstructured. Abstracts may contain up to 250 words.

• KEY WORDS - following the Descriptors for Health Sciences (http://decs.bvs.br/), add key words or short phrases after the abstract.

• TEXT - up to 3,000 words containing: introduction and objectives; methods (material and/or subjects; statistical methods; bioethical approach with the name of the Ethics Committee that approved the study and the patients' Informed Consent); results; discussion (which should include the conclusions); acknowledgements. Data presented in the tables and illustrations should not be repeated in the text. Observation: Short communication and case report: up to 1500 words for text.

• TABLES - up to 5 in original papers (up to 2 in short communication or case report), each presented in a separate sheet, with its title, legend and sequence number. Vertical lines should not be used for separating data within the table. Type or print out each table double spaced on a separate sheet. Do not submit tables as photographs. Number tables consecutively in the order of their first citation in the text and supply a brief title for each. Give each column a short or abbreviated heading. Place explanatory matter in footnotes, not in the heading. Explain in footnotes all nonstandard abbreviations that are used in each table. For footnotes use the following symbols, in this sequence: *, †, ‡, §, ||, ¶, **, ††, ‡‡, etc.

The editor, on accepting a paper, may recommend that additional tables containing important backup data too extensive to publish be deposited with an archival service, such as the National Auxiliary Publication Service in the United States, or be made available by the authors. In that event an appropriate statement will be added to the text. Submit such tables for consideration with the paper.

ILLUSTRATIONS - Up to 3 figures, graphics or photos, with their title and legend in separate sheets (up to 2 illustrations in short communication or case report). The back of each figure must include the sequence number and the proper orientation. Illustrations taken from other sources should be accompanied by permission of the publisher and the author. Color illustrations are accepted; the authors should cover their publication costs. Submit the required number of complete sets of illustrations, or "figures." Figures should be professionally drawn and photographed; freehand or typewritten lettering is unacceptable. Instead of original drawings, x-ray films and other material, send sharp, glossy, black-and-white photographic prints, usually 127 × 173 mm (5 × 7 in) but no larger than 203 × 254 mm (8 × 10 in). Letters, numbers and symbols should be clear and even throughout and of sufficient size that when reduced for publication will still be legible. Titles and detailed explanations belong in the legends, not on the illustrations themselves.

Each figure should have a label pasted on its back indicating its number, the first author's name and the top of the figure. Do not write on the back of figures or scratch or mar them by using paper clips. Do not bend figures or mount them on cardboard.

Photomicrographs should have internal scale markers. Symbols, arrows or letters used in photomicrographs should contrast with the background.
If photographs of persons are used, either the subjects must not be identifiable or their pictures must be accompanied by written permission to use the photographs (see Protection of Patients' Rights to Privacy).

Figures should be numbered consecutively according to the order in which they have been first cited in the text. If a figure has been published, acknowledge the original source and submit written permission from the copyright holder to reproduce the material. Permission is required irrespective of authorship or publisher, except for documents in the public domain.
Type or print out legends for illustrations double spaced, starting on a separate page, with arabic numerals corresponding to the illustrations. When symbols, arrows, numbers or letters are used to identify parts of an illustration, identify and explain each one clearly in the legend. Explain the internal scale and identify the method of staining in photomicrographs.
Units of measurement

Measurements of length, height, weight and volume should be reported in metric units (metre, kilogram, litre etc.) or their decimal multiples.

Temperatures should be given in degrees Celsius. Blood pressures should be given in millimetres of mercury.

All hematological and clinical chemistry measurements should be reported in the metric system in terms of the International System of Units (SI). Editors may request that • •

Abbreviations and symbols
Use only standard abbreviations. Avoid abbreviations in the title and abstract. The full term for which an abbreviation stands should precede its first use in the text unless it is a standard unit of measurement.
