Please e-mail your manuscript, tables and figures to editor@actaodontologicalat.com  Authors are advised to keep a copy for their files.

Authors are responsible for all statements made in their papers. The manuscript shall be sent together  with the “Author Agreement”, with the e-signatures of all the authors.

In view of the considerations expressed in our Editorial Policy, papers will be published in English. In addition to the scientific review, AOL will conduct a technical review and a language review.

To facilitate the work of the authors, AOL offers a manuscript translation service from Spanish or Portuguese.

Current fees can be consulted at the time of submission. AOL may correct the language in papers submitted in English, and authors will be billed according to how much correcting the manuscripts require. The translation/correction service will only be performed if the paper has been accepted for publication, after scientific review.

Manuscripts should be double spaced and organized as follows: running head – no more than 40 letters; full title in English; authors separated by commas including the full name used for indexing and the rest with initials; affiliation(s) in English, indicating each author’s affiliation by means of a superscript; 150-300 word abstract; keywords (no more than six, which must be listed in PubMed’s MeSH); title in Spanish or Portuguese, abstract in Spanish or Portuguese and keywords in Spanish or Portuguese.

The text should include the following headings: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgments, Contact Information (name, mailing address and e-mail address of the corresponding author), references and legends for figures.

References should be indicated in the manuscript with superscripts and numbered consecutively according to the order in which they appear in the text. Format and punctuation should match the following example:

1. Ghiabi M, Gallagher GT, Wong DT.  Eosinophils, tissue eosinophilia and eosinophil-derived transforming growth factor alpha in hamster oral carcinogenesis. Cancer Res 1992; 52:389-393.

Journal names should be abbreviated as in MEDLINE/PubMed. If abstracts are cited, [Abstract] should be added after the title.
Book citations should include, in this order: author(s) of the book and chapter, book title and the chapter title, where applicable, city  and country, publisher, year of publication, pages.

Photographs should be sent in separate files, without their legends, in *.tiff ,*.jpg or *.epf format, resolution 300dpi, size 100 %, and numbered consecutively according to their appearance in the text. Diagrams, graphs and tables should have proportions that render them legible, in the width of one or two columns of the printed journal (7.5 or 16.5 cm), and be designed on Excel or Power Point. Photographs, diagrams and graphs should be indicated as Fig. (figures) and numbered with consecutive Arabic numerals according to their order of appearance in the text. Tables should be numbered with a separate series of Arabic numerals, have a title, and any abbreviations should be explained in a footnote. Legends for figures should be included at the end of the manuscript.
