2.1 General remarks

When preparing manuscript file for NEW submission authors should make sure that their manuscript DOES NOT contain names of authors, their affiliations, addresses, acknowledgement and similar information that would reveal identity of authors to the reviewers. Authors are strongly advised to check Ensuring a Blind Review for guidelines how to anonymize manuscript file(s) before submission. All submissions that fail to comply with this request will be rejected without consideration.

Authors should submit their manuscript as one Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx or .rft) file following strictly specified layout of manuscript structural elements as outlined below. Main manuscript file should be carefully checked for all needed structural elements. Do not add any additional elements or data in your main manuscript file except the ones specified in guidelines! Do not break your main manuscript file in more files!

In text, avoid “one sentence – one paragraph” writing. Integrate your sentences in continuous text and sensible paragraphs.

Type the whole manuscript double-spaced!

Apart from chapter titles and subtitles avoid any kind of formatting (bold, underline) in the main text of the manuscript or table contents.

Tables with headings and footnotes should be put each on a separate page. As for figures, pictures, graphs and other graphics, they all, if possible, should be included in the main manuscript file, each on a separate page with appropriate heading below. All other graphic material should be submitted separately but then, the last separate page of the manuscript should contain Figure headings only of figures submitted separately.


2.1.1 Language

Language quality is author\'s responsibility. Therefore authors should let a native speaker or fluent English speaker check their manuscript. There are professional lectors who can help with that. Please make spell and language check before sending back your manuscript or find a competent person to do that. Croatian authors should also do spell check for additional summary in the Croatian language.


2.1.2  Length of the manuscript 

The manuscript should not exceed the maximum length of 8 pages as printed in Collegium, which is roughly 30 A4 pages of double-spaced text. Altough submissions exceeding 8 page limit will still be considered, additional pages represent extra expence for the Journal. Please, see Donations and Payments for additional details.

 

2.1.3 Printing in color

If your manuscript contains figures or tables in color, note that printing in color is also an extra expence for the Journal. Please, see Donations and Payments.

 



2.2 Title

In the title authors should include all information that will make electronic retrieval of the article both sensitive and specific.

Check spelling and language of your title. The title should be in Titlecase, written in upper- and lowercase letters (initial uppercase for all words except articles, conjunctions, short prepositions no longer than four letters...) so that first letters of the words in the title are in caps. Exception are words like: articles (the, a), and, or, between etc. The word following a colon (:) or a hyphen (-) in the title is always capitalized.

 

Example:

Effects of Socio-Economic and Behavioral Characteristics in Explaining Central Obesity – A Study of Adult Asian Indians in Calcutta, India

 



2.3 Type of publication

Authors should suggest the type of their submission. Collegium Antropologicum publishes original scientific papers, reviews, case reports, professional papers and short reports.

 



2.4 Running head

Short running title should not exceed 50 characters including spaces.

 

Example:

Carabelli’s Trait in Slovenes

(Title: Carabelli’s Trait in Contemporary Slovenes and Inhabitants of a Medieval Settlement (Središče by the Drava River))

 



2.5 Abstract

The abstract should provide the context or background for the study and should state the study’s purposes, basic procedures (selection of study subjects or laboratory animals, observational and analytical methods), main findings (giving specific effect sizes and their statistical significance, if possible), and principal conclusions. It should emphasize new and important aspects of the study or observations.

It is recommended that abstract should not exceed one typed double-spaced page, written in English and in italics.

Since abstract is independent part of a paper, all abbreviations used in the abstract should also be explained in it. If an abbreviation is used, the term should always be first written in full with the abbreviation in parentheses immediately after it.

Abstract should NOT have any special headings (Aim, Results…). Abstract should be written as a continuous text and consists of one paragraph only!

Citing literature in abstract should generally be avoided but if necessary it should be done the same way as in the rest of the text.

 



2.6 Key words

Authors should provide at least 5 key words or short phrases that capture the main topics of the article. These will assist indexers in cross-indexing the article and may be published with the abstract. Terms from the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) list of Index Medicus should be used. There are other subject headings lists available on the Internet like Sociology and Anthropology Subject Headings.

Key words should be placed right below the abstract in English, written in italic as shown in the following example.


Example:

ABSTRACT

Results of the analysis of…………………………….

Key words: newborns, anthropometrics, percentile curve, growth chart, Zagreb, Croatia


2.7 Manuscript sections and titles

Style of the journal prescribes only 2 types of sections within manuscript: main section titles and subtitles.

Main section titles – written in bold and in titlecase (initial uppercase for all word except articles, conjuctions, short prepositions...). The word following a colon (:) or a hyphen (-) in the title is always capitalized.

 

Example:

Methods of Analysis – An Overview


Subtitles – all other titles within one section. They are written in italic and in normal sentence case (only the starting word of a title begins with first letter in caps.

 

Example:

Geographical position of the research site

 

Note that ONLY titles but NOT the subtitles are written in titlecase!

Do not put a full stop or any other sign at the end of the title.

Depending on the type of publication main manuscript chapters may vary. The general outline is: Introduction, Materials, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgements. If not needed, Acknowledgements may be omitted. Conclusion can be part of Discussion. Materials and Methods can be (if authors want to) united in one chapter and titled «Materials and Methods». Results and Discussion can be united in one chapter and titled accordingly. Subjects and Methods or Patients and Methods can also be used as a chapter title. For example, a case report might have the following titles : Introduction – Case Report – Discussion – Conclusion – Acknowledgements

However, this scheme may not be suitable for reviews or publications from the area of cultural anthropology or ethnology. Authors should then adjust their chapters accordingly.

 

2.7.1 Introduction

Introduction provides a context or background for the study (i.e. the nature of the problem and its significance). It states the specific purpose or research objective of, or hypothesis tested by the study or observation; e.g. keep in mind that the research objective is often more sharply focused when stated as a question. Both the main and secondary objectives should be made clear, and any pre-specified subgroup analyses should be described. Only strictly pertinent references should be given without data or conclusions from the work being reported.

 

2.7.2  Materials (subjects, patients etc.) and Methods

The Materials and Methods section should include only information that was available at the time the plan or protocol for the study was written. All information obtained during the conduct of the study belongs to the Results section.

 

2.7.3 Statistics

Describe statistical methods with enough detail to enable a knowledgeable reader with access to the original data to verify the reported results. When possible, quantify findings and present them with appropriate indicators of measurement error or uncertainty (such as confidence intervals). Avoid relying solely on statistical hypothesis testing, such as the use of p-values, which fails to convey important information about effective size. References for the design of the study and statistical methods should comply to standard works when possible (with pages stated). Define statistical terms, abbreviations, and most particularly symbols. Specify the computer software used.

 

2.7.4  Results

Present your results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and illustrations, giving the main or most important findings first. Do not repeat in the text all the data in the tables or illustrations; emphasize or summarize only important observations. Restrict tables and figures to those needed to explain the argument of the paper and to assess its support. Use graphs as an alternative to tables with many entries; do not duplicate data in graphs and tables. Avoid non-technical uses of technical terms in statistics, such as “random” (which implies a randomizing device), “normal”, “significant”, “correlations”, and “sample.”

 

2.7.5 Discussion and Conclusion

Emphasize the new and important aspects of the study and the conclusions that follow from them. Do not repeat in detail data or other material given in the Introduction or the Results section. For experimental studies it is useful to begin the discussion by summarizing briefly the main findings, then explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings, compare and contrast the results with other relevant studies, state the limitations of the study, and explore the implications of the findings for future research and practice.

Link the conclusions with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not adequately supported by the data. In particular, authors should avoid making statements on economic costs and benefits unless their manuscript includes appropriate economic data and analyses. Avoid claiming priority and alluding to work that has not been completed. State new hypotheses when warranted, but clearly label them as such. Authors can also separate Conclusion chapter from Discussion.

 

2.7.6 Acknowledgements

Authors should acknowledge help and support (financial, advisory etc.) from any institution, organization, group or a individual who have contributed to the production of the article.

 



2.8 References

References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are mentioned in the text.

All information needed for each type of reference (journal article, book, book chapter, internet source etc.) MUST be present as specified in guidelines.

Authors are responsible for accuracy of each reference. Use authoritative source for information such as databases Current contents, Web of Science, Medline or PubMed to check the validity of journal article citation.

Journal abbreviations - titles of journals should be abbreviated according to their official abbreviations.

 

2.8.1 Reference list

Reference list is a highly structured part of the text where each comma, space, colon, etc. counts. Authors are kindly asked to be very careful and strict when editing this part of the text. Following are some general rules and examples that should help authors.

In the reference list, references should be listed one after another (without line break) separated with a dash (see an example of a reference list below).

Please note that names of journals should be given in their official (Medline, Pubmed, Index medicus) abbreviated form. (example: American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry - Am J Geriatr Psychiatr – DO NOT CREATE YOUR OWN ABBREVIATION – CHECK IT!)

All authors of the cited source should be quoted (et. al. cannot be used in the reference list). Accuracy and content of the references are author’s responsibility, so make sure you provide correct references.

The following conventions are used for references:

2.8.2 DOI (Digital Object Identifyer) numbers

Authors are also obliged to provide DOI numbers for all referenced items that have DOI numbers. All cited articles as listed in the   References should have DOI numbers added at the end of each cited article by using the following format:

BEAMAN CP, Current Anthropology, 51 (2010) S27, DOI: 10.1086/650297.

DOI numbers are usually displayed on the front page of an article and can therefore be obtained from the publisher or can be looked up by using search engine provided by CrossRef, a global agency that keeps the register of DOI numbers (http://www.crossref.org/guestquery/ ). Please note that some journals, older articles, books and book chapters may not have DOI numbers assigned. In such case DOI numbers do not have to be provided. However, it is extremely important that authors provide DOI numbers for all the references that have them.

 

2.8.3 Personal communication

Avoid citing a “personal communication” unless it provides essential information not available from a public source, in which case the name of the person and date of communication should be cited in parentheses in the text. For scientific articles, authors should obtain written permission and confirmation of accuracy from the source of a personal communication.

 

2.8.4 Examples for the reference list

(Please note how references are separated with a long dash and NOT a line break!)

2.11 Tables

All tables should be included in the main manuscript file, each on a separate page right after the abstract in Croatian. Number tables consecutively in the order of their first citation in the text and supply a brief title for each.

Tables and table headings should be completely intelligible without reference to the text. Give each column a short or abbreviated heading. Authors should place explanatory matter in footnotes, not in the heading. All abbreviations appearing in a table and not considered standard MUST be explained in a footnote of that table (see Abbreviations).

Tables should be presented as standard MS Word tables, NOT as pictures or other graphic material. Do not use simple text editing to create a table, but the table option instead. If you are not familiar with using MS Word please find a colleague to help you.

All text appearing in tables should be written beginning only with first letter of the first word in caps (only the initial word of all text should be capitalized), i.e. all words for variable categories, column headings etc. in tables should start with the first letter in caps.

Avoid any formatting (bold, italic, underline) in your tables and their headings. Avoid any shading or coloring in your tables. Avoid any border formatting in your tables. Put plain borders, no additional graphic editing is necessary.

Be sure that each table is cited in the text.

If you use data from another published or unpublished source, obtain permission and acknowledge them fully.

The format of tables should not exceed A4. Only exceptionally the format A3 will be accepted.

 

Example:

                                  TABLE 3

PRESENTATION OF RADIOGRAPHIC PARENCHYMAL

 PATTERNS RELATED TO LOCALIZATION

 

Parenchymal consolidation

RLL (N)

RML (N)

RUL (N)

Segmental consolidation

6

RLL - right lower lobe, RML - right middle lobe,

RUL – right upper lobe

 

Example for table citation:

….exhibit greater variance than the year before (Table 2). Therefore…

 

2.11.1 Table heading

Table heading should be written above the table, in caps and without a full stop at the end of the heading.

 

Example:                                                                    TABLE 3

PRESENTATION OF RADIOGRAPHIC PARENCHYMAL PATTERNS RELATED TO LOCALIZATION

 

2.11.2 Table footnote

Footnotes should be written below the table.

 

Examples:

 *p>0.001, **p>0.05, ELISA - enzyme-linked immnosorbent assay, CFT - complement fixation test

 not: ELISA = enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, CFT = complement fixation test

but: ELISA - enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, CFT - complement fixation test

 

2.11.3 Table citation

In the text, tables should be cited as full words. Some examples are given below.

 

Examples:

Table 1 not table 1 (first letter in caps)

Table 1 not Table 1. (no full stop)

…(p<0.05, Table 1). not ...(p<0.05). (Table 1)

....as shown in Tables 1 and 3. (citing more tables at once)

... result shown (Tables 1-3) that... (citing more tables at once)

....in our results (Tables 1, 2 and 5)... (citing more tables at once)

 

2.11.4 Subtables

Use this only if there is no other solution. It is preferred that you brake subtables in two independent tables or merge them into one.

 

Examples:

heading for a subtable: TABLE 1a

citation of a subtable: .... (Table 1a)

 



2.12 Figures and graphs

All graphic material should be digitalized first. Avoid sending photographs or similar. All graphic materials should be of sufficient quality for print (300 dpi, or more if necessary).

Figures should be numbered consecutively according to the order in which they appear in the text. If a figure has been published previously, acknowledge the original source and submit a 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. If photographs of people are used, either the subjects must not be identifiable or their pictures must be accompanied by written permission to use the photograph. Whenever possible permission for publication should be obtained.

Figures and figure headings should be completely intelligible without reference to the text. All abbreviations appearing in a figure or its heading not considered standard MUST be explained in a figure heading (see Abbreviations).

The format of figures should not exceed the size of A4 paper. Only exceptionally the format A3 will be accepted.

Avoid using any formatting (bold, underline) in figures or figure headings.

Be sure that each figure is cited in the text.


2.12.1 Graphs

All graphs and other Microsoft Office material should be placed in the main manuscript file each on a separate page and be accompanied by a corresponding figure heading.

All words for variable names should be capitalized.

All abbreviations are to be explained in the footing of the figure. For expample, if you have «Number of….» then put the whole word NOT «No. of……».

Axis titles in your figures should have no formatting (bold, italic etc.). After the title of the axis there should be a unit of measure in parentheses for example: Age (years). While the first letter of the axis title is capitalized, unit of measure is not. Whenever possible, all axis titles should be put in the middle of the axis.

Take care about the colors on your graphs. The graphs shall be printed in gray unless otherwise specified in the new submission form and paid for accordingly.

Decimal numbers on your axis should have a decimal full stop, NOT a comma.

 

2.12.2 Figure heading

Figures should not contain footnotes. All information, including explanations of abbreviations must be present in figure heading. Headings of the figures like graphs and other MS Office material submitted in the main manuscript file should be presented together with their corresponding figures. Headings of the figures submitted separately should be presented on the last separate page of the main manuscript file.

Figure headings are written in italics and begin with “Fig.” followed by figure number and a full stop. 

 

Examples for figure heading:

Fig. 2. Changes in median values of eight aspects of quality of life measured before and after surgery. MH - mental health, RE - role-emotional, *p>0.001, **p>0.05.

Fig. 5. Cell layers of the pre-primitive streak rat egg cylinder. Ep – epiblast, Hy – hypoblast, VYS - visceral yolk sac endoderm.

 

2.12.3  Figure citation

All graphic material (graphs, pictures, drawings etc.) should be referred to as Figures in the text. Figures are cited in the text as full words.  

 

Examples for figure citation:

….exhibit greater variance than the year before (Figure 2). Therefore…

Figure 1 not figure 1 (first letter in caps)

Figure 1 not Figure 1. (no full stop)

- …(p<0.05, Figure 1). not ...(p<0.05). (Figure 1)

....as shown in Figures 1 and 3. (citing more figures at once)

... result shown (Figures 1-3) that... (citing more figures at once)

....in our results (Figures 1, 2 and 5)... (citing more figures at once)

  

2.12.4 Subfigures

If there is a figure divided in several subfigures, each subfigure should be marked with a small letter followed by parenthesis, starting with a), b), c).... The letter and parenthesis should be marked for each subfigure in a logical and consistent way.

If a figure consists of several subfigures, all of them should be referred to in the main figure heading (see example).  

 

Example:

Fig. 1. a) Morphologic characteristics of the...... b) Sources of the.... c) The last segment...

 

Subfigures should be cited in the text as follows: 

 

Examples:

Figure 1c not Fig. 1 C

... in Figures 1a and b we can...

...data represent (Figures 1a-d)...

 



2.13 Additional requirements


2.13.1 Numbers, units of measurement, variables and values

In Collegium all units of measures should conform to the International System of Units (SI).

Decimal places in English language are separated with a full stop and NOT with a comma. Thousands are separated with a comma

Temperatures should be expressed in degrees Celsius. Blood pressures should be expressed in millimeters of mercury, unless other units are specifically required by the journal. 

 

Examples:

 percentages and degrees:

10% but NOT 10 % (NO space in between)

10o but NOT 10 o (NO space in between)

 

all other units of measure:

10 kg but NOT 10kg (a space in between)

 

ratios:

12:2 but NOT 12 : 2 (NO space in between)

 

decimal numbers:

0.056 NOT: .056 (there should be a zero in front of decimal full stop)

SD=3.5 but NOT SD = 3.5 (NO space in between)

X=45±3.4 but NOT X=45 ± 3.4 (NO space in between)

45±3.4 but NOT 45 ± 3.4 (NO space in between)

NOT: Mean±SD but: X±SD (use standard abbreviation)

p<0.005 but not p < 0.005 (NO space in between)

0.001<0.005 but NOT 0.001 < p < 0.005 (NO space in between)

?2 but NOT chi square or X2 or X2 (use the greek letter)

?2=2345 but NOT ?2 = 2345 (NO space between)

it’s p NOT P (not capitalized)

 

2.13.2 Abbreviations

Use only standard abbreviations; the use of non-standard abbreviations can be extremely confusing to readers. Avoid abbreviations in the title. A full explication of a term for which an abbreviation stands should precede first use the abbreviation in the text unless it is a standard unit of measurement.

All abbreviations should be explained ONLY the first time they appear in text in the following way:

 

Example:

 …. following the main sample (MS). Therefore……….

 

Note that abstract, each figure and table is considered a separate and independent part of the text and all abbreviations should be also explained there despite the fact that you may have already explained it text. If you have abbreviations that are repeated through tables and figures they should be explained in each figure and in each table (in heading or in footnote).

 

2.13.3 Latin names

Latin names of species, families etc. should be written in italics (even in titles). If you mention Latin names in your abstract they should be written in non italic since the rest of the text in abstract is in italic. The first time the name of a species appears in the text both genus and species must be present, later on in the text it is possible to use genus abbreviations.

 

Example:

first time appearing: Escherichia coli

abbreviated: E. coli

3.1 Authors

In one line list all authors with full names separated by a comma (and space). Last author should be separated with the word "and". Only the first name, initial of a middle and family name of authors should be given. Avoid any abbreviations of academic or professional titles. If authors belong to different institutions, following a family name of the author there should be a number in superscript designating affiliation (see the next section on Affiliations).

 

Example:

 Barbara Lynn Brown1, John Smith1,2, Marko Jurišić3 and Ana Pavić-Jukić4


 

3.2 Affiliations

Affiliation consists of the name of a department(s) and institution(s), city and country to which the author(s) belong and to which the presented / submitted work should be attributed.

List all affiliations (each in a separate line) in the order corresponding to the list of authors. Affiliations must be written in English, so carefully check the official English translation of the names of institutions and departments. Do not translate yourself – check the information since Editorial Board does not have any way of checking these.

 

Affiliations should be written as follows:

name of department(s), name of institution(s), town, state

Only if there is more than one affiliation, should a number be given to each affiliation in order of appearance. This number should be written in superscript at the beginning of the line, separated from corresponding affiliation with a space. This number should also be put after corresponding name of the author, in superscript with no space in between (see example).

If an author belongs to more than one institution, all corresponding superscript digits, separated with a comma with no space in between, should be present behind the family name of this author.

In case all authors belong to the same institution affiliation numbering is not needed.

Whenever possible expand your authors\' affiliations with departments, or some other, specific and lower levels of organization.


Example:

Barbara Lynn Brown1, John Smith1,2, Marko Jurišić3 and Ana Pavić-Jukić4


University of Ohio, Department of Anthropology, Ohio, USA

University of Manchester, School of Medicine, Department of Anatomy,  UK

3 Institute for Anthropological Research, Zagreb, Croatia

University of Zagreb, School of Medicine, “Andrija Štampar” School of Public Health, Department of Medical Statistics, Epidemiology and Medical Informatics, Zagreb, Croatia

 



3.3 Corresponding author's address

Corresponding author's name with full postal address in English and, if possible, e-mail address should be placed, in italics, at the end of the manuscript between reference list and abstract in Croatian. It is preferred that submitted address is institutional and not private.

Author\'s name should include only initials of the first and middle names separated by a full stop (and a space) and the full surname. Postal address should be written in the following line in sentence case. Parts of the address should be separated by a comma instead of a line break.

 

 Example:

 A. B. Jukić-Pavić

 

University of Zagreb, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Department of Genetics, Klaićeva 7, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia

e-mail: anapavic@zg.uni.hr


 

3.4 Corresponding author's e-mail

E-mail (if possible) should be placed in the line following the postal address.
