Author Guidelines

ARIS2 Journal - Submission Guidelines


Any manuscript submitted to ARIS2 must be original and undergo a double-blind review process. The manuscript, or substantial parts of it, must not be under consideration by any other journal/publisher with a maximum length of 18 pages.

In any case, where there is the potential for overlap or duplication, transparency from the authors is mandatory. Any potentially overlapping publications should be declared on submission and, where possible, uploaded as additional files with the manuscript. Any overlapping publications should be cited. The Editors of ARIS2 reserve the right to judge potentially overlapping or redundant publications on a case-by-case basis.

Research Format

Most articles published in ARIS2 will be organized into the following sections: title, authors, affiliations, abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, references, acknowledgments, figure legends, and table captions. Uniformity in format will help readers and users of the journal. We recognize; however, this format is not ideal for all types of studies. If you have a manuscript that would benefit from a different format, please contact the editors to discuss this further. Although we have no firm length restrictions for the entire manuscript or individual sections, we urge authors to present and discuss their findings concisely, along with maintenance of a logical flow.

Research Title

The title should be specific to the study yet concise and should allow sensitive and specific electronic retrieval of the article. It should be comprehensible to readers outside your field. Avoid specialist abbreviations if possible. Titles should be presented in title case, meaning all words except for prepositions, articles, and conjunctions should be capitalized. If the paper is a randomized controlled trial or a meta-analysis, this description should be in the title. Examples: “Faulty Information Systems Effects on Factories and Dens in the Upper Chao Phraya River and the Lower Ping and Nan Rivers, Thailand”. Please also provide a brief "running head" of approximately 40 characters.

Research Authors and Affiliations

Provide the first names or initials (if used), middle names or initials (if used), surnames, and affiliation details, including department, university or organization, city, state/province (if applicable), and country for all authors. One of the authors should be designated as the corresponding author. It is the corresponding author’s responsibility to ensure that the author list and the summary of the author's contributions to the study are accurate and complete. If the article has been submitted on behalf of a consortium, all consortium members and affiliations should be listed after the Acknowledgments.

Research Abstract

The abstract is divided into the following four sections with these headings: Title, Background, Methods and Findings, and Conclusions. It should contain all the following elements except for items in square brackets, which are only needed for some study types. Please use the same format for abstracts submitted as pre-submission inquiries.

Background: This section should clearly describe the rationale for the study being done. It should end with a statement of the specific study hypotheses and/or study objectives.

Methods and Findings: Describe the participants or what was studied (e.g., cell lines, patient group; be as specific as possible, including numbers studied). Describe the study design/intervention/main methods used/what was primarily being assessed, e.g., primary outcome measure and, if appropriate, over what period. [If appropriate, include how many participants were assessed out of those enrolled, e.g., what was the response rate for a survey.] [If critical to the understanding of the paper, describe how results were analyzed, i.e., which specific statistical tests were used.] For the main outcomes, provide a numerical result if appropriate (it nearly always is) and a measure of its precision (e.g., 95% confidence interval). Describe any adverse events or side effects.
It is always preferable that the authors describe the main limitations of the study.

Conclusions: Provide a general interpretation of the results with any important recommendations for future research. [For a clinical trial, provide any trial identification numbers and names (e.g., trial registration number, protocol number, or acronym).]

Research Introduction

The introduction should discuss the purpose of the study in the broader context. As you compose the introduction, think of readers who are not experts in this field. Include a brief review of the key literature. If there are relevant controversies or disagreements in the field, they should be mentioned so that a non-expert reader can delve into these issues further. The introduction should conclude with a brief statement of the overall aim of the experiments and a comment about whether that aim was achieved.

Research Methods

This section should provide enough detail for the reproduction of the findings. Protocols for new methods should be included, but well-established protocols may simply be referenced. Detailed methodology or supporting information relevant to the methodology can be published on our Web site. This section should also include another section with descriptions of any statistical methods employed. These should conform to the criteria outlined by the Uniform Requirements, as follows: "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 quantitative information. Discuss the eligibility of research participants. Give details about randomization. Describe the methods related to the success of any blinding of observations. Authors should report complications of treatment whenever necessary. It is mandatory for the authors to provide a number of observations. Data loss during analysis or observation (such as dropouts from a clinical trial) should be reported by the authors. References for the design of the study and statistical methods should be provided from the standard works when possible (with pages stated) rather than to papers in which the designs or methods were originally reported. Specify any general-use computer programs used."

Research Results

The results section should include all relevant positive and negative findings. The section may be divided into subsections, each with a concise subheading. Large datasets, including raw data, should be submitted as supporting files; these are published online alongside the accepted article. The results section should be written in the past tense. As outlined in the Uniform requirements, authors that present statistical data in the Results section should "...specify the statistical methods used to analyze them. Restrict tables and figures to those needed to explain the argument of the paper and assess its support. Use graphs as an alternative to tables with many entries; do not duplicate data in graphs and tables. Avoid nontechnical uses of technical terms in statistics, such as "random" (which implies a randomizing device), "normal," "significant," "correlations," and "sample." Define statistical terms, abbreviations, and most symbols."

Research Discussion

The discussion should be concise and tightly argued. It should start with a summary of the main findings. It should include paragraphs on the generalizability, clinical relevance, strengths, and, most importantly, the limitations of the study.
You may wish to discuss the following points also. How do the conclusions affect the existing knowledge in the field? How can future research build on these observations? What are the key experiments that must be done?


The IEEE Guidelines offer guidance to authors in ARIS2 publication. The permitted style for references is based on the IEEE. 


People who contributed to the work but did not fit the criteria for authors should be listed in the Acknowledgments, along with their contributions. You must also ensure that anyone named in the acknowledgments agrees to be so named.
Details of the funding sources that have supported the work should be confined to the funding statement. Do not include them in the Acknowledgments.


This section should describe sources of funding that have supported the work. Please also describe the role of the study sponsor(s), if any, in study design; collection, analysis, and interpretation of data; writing of the paper; and the decision to submit it for publication.

Competing and conflicting Interests

It is important to consider this carefully. If you don’t declare a conflict of interest and you are subsequently found to have one, your paper will lose credibility. Conversely, full disclosure of conflict of interest does not prevent a paper from being published but does allow you to be open with your readers. This section should list specific competing interests associated with any of the authors. If authors declare that no competing interests exist, we will print a statement to this effect.


Please keep abbreviations to a minimum. List all non-standard abbreviations in alphabetical order, along with their expanded form. Define them as well upon first use in the text. Non-standard abbreviations should not be used unless they appear at least three times in the text.


The use of standardized nomenclature in all fields of science and medicine is an essential step toward the integration and linking of scientific information reported in published literature. We will enforce the use of correct and established nomenclature wherever possible: We strongly encourage the use of SI units. If you do not use these exclusively, please provide the SI value in parentheses after each value.

Technologies names should be italicized (e.g., HTML - Hypertext Language Markup ), and the full name must be written out in full, both in the title of the manuscript and at the first mention of a protocol in a paper.

All appropriate datasets, images, and information should be deposited in public resources. Please provide the relevant accession numbers (and version numbers, if appropriate). Accession numbers should be provided in parentheses after the entity on first use.


If the article is accepted for publication, the author will be asked to supply high-resolution, print-ready versions of the figures. Please ensure that the files conform to our Guidelines for Figure and Table Preparation when preparing your figures for production. After acceptance, authors will also be asked to provide an attractive image to highlight their papers online. Figures may be published under a Creative Commons Attribution License, which allows them to be freely used, distributed, and built upon as long as proper attribution is given. Please do not submit any figures that have been previously copyrighted unless you have express written permission from the copyright holder to publish under the CCAL license.

Figure Legends

The aim of the figure legend should be to describe the key messages of the figure, but the figure should also be discussed in the text. An enlarged version of the figure and its full legend will often be viewed in a separate window online, and it should be possible for a reader to understand the figure without switching back and forth between this window and the relevant parts of the text. Each legend should have a concise title of no more than 15 words. The legend itself should be succinct while still explaining all symbols and abbreviations. Avoid lengthy descriptions of methods.


All tables should have a concise title. Footnotes can be used to explain abbreviations. Citations should be indicated using the same style as outlined above. Tables occupying more than one printed page should be avoided, if possible. Larger tables can be published as online supporting information. Tables must be cell-based; do not use picture elements, text boxes, tabs, or returns in tables. Please ensure that the files conform to our Guidelines for Figure and Table Preparation when preparing your tables for production.
Requirements for figures and tables

  1. When you submit an article, tables and figures must be submitted as separate files.
  2. Tables must be in Word.doc format.
  3. Line Graphs should be in or .tif or eps formats and have a resolution of 900-1200 dpi. If you are unsure about this, please send us the graph in Microsoft excel format, and we will convert it into eps or .tif formats.
  4. Photographs containing no text must be in jpg or .tif formats with a resolution of 500+ dpi. If you do not have .tif or eps, please submit as jpg.
  5. Images that contain a combination of text and picture elements must be in jpg or .tif or eps formats with a resolution of 500-1200 dpi. If you do not have .tif or eps, please submit it as jpg.
    **** Generally, we will NOT accept any images with resolutions below 300 dpi. You must submit it at least in jpg format; that way, we can change it into any other format accordingly.
    **** Please note that all images must be big (greater than the intended size) and of high resolution.


Article submissions should be made using the online Editor Manager System or through E-mail IDs provided at the respective journal’s site.

Submitted articles are published immediately after the process of submission, review, and camera ready. All articles are included in Editions, and these are published biannually in a unique volume.


When you have altered your paper in light of the peer reviewer’s comments, and you have written a cover letter to the editor explaining the changes you made or refuting the reviewer’s comments, you are ready to resubmit.
Try to resubmit as soon as you can. Generally, this makes it easier to do as the paper is still fresh in your mind. The scientific world moves quickly, so you want your work published before someone else produces similar work. Once you have resubmitted, you will see the status of the paper changed within a specific span of time. If you don’t see this or don’t receive any acknowledgment of your resubmission, please check with the Editorial staff and confirm the receipt of the article by the Editorial Office.

We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.

Technical and regulatory information

Logging practices

ARIS2 automatically records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors. The IP address is a unique number assigned to every computer on the internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, the IP address that we collect may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because, with some broadband connections, your IP address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer.

As well as recording the IP addresses of users, ARIS2 may also keep track of sites that users visited immediately prior to visiting the ARIS2 website and the search terms they used to find them. We keep track of the pages visited on the ARIS2 website, the amount of time spent on those pages, and the types of searches done on them. Your searches remain confidential and anonymous. ARIS2 uses this information only for statistical purposes to find out which pages users find most useful and to improve the website.

ARIS2 also captures and stores information that you transmit. This may include:

  • Browser/Device type/version
  • Operating system used
  • Media Access Control (MAC) address
  • Date and time of the server request
  • The volume of data transferred

External links behavior

Some ARIS2 websites link to other sites created and maintained by other public- and/or private-sector organizations. ARIS2 provides these links solely for your information and convenience. When you transfer to an outside website, you are leaving the ARIS2 domain, and ARIS2 information management policies no longer apply. ARIS2 encourages you to read the privacy statement of each external website that you visit before you provide any personal data.

Cookies and web beacons

Cookies and web beacons are electronic placeholders that are placed on your device by websites to track your individual movements on that website over time. ARIS2 uses both session-based cookies (which last only for the duration of the user's session) and persistent cookies (which remain on your device and provide information about the session you are in and wait for the next time you use that site again). 

These cookies and web beacons provide useful information to ARIS2, enabling us to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's access to and use of our sites, allow us to track usage behavior, and balance the usage of our websites on all ARIS2 web servers. 

Tracking cookies, third-party cookies, and other technologies such as web beacons may be used to process additional information, enable non-core functionalities on the ARIS2 website, and enable third-party functions (such as a social media "share" link). We may also include web beacons and other similar technology in promotional email messages to determine whether the messages have been opened. 

Do Not Track (DNT)

The online advertising industry has self-regulatory initiatives designed to provide consumers a choice in the types of ads they may see online and to conveniently opt-out from online behavioral ads served by some or all of the companies participating in these programs. Our websites do not respond to DNT consumer browser settings.

Collaboration with authorities

ARIS2 has appointed and mandated a Data Protection Officer by NRMC.PT represents the regulatory authorities inside the ARIS2 Journal and in return, represents the ARIS2 organization to regulatory authorities.

The ARIS2 Data Protection officer will ensure proper communication with the relevant regulatory authority for privacy. The privacy officer will lead investigative action, complaint handling, and data breach notification. The privacy officer will also monitor regulatory changes and consult the regulatory authority where implementation of a regulatory or technological change leads to doubt. 

Transfer of information to other countries 

As a global organization, ARIS2 engages in a number of international activities.  In connection with the management of those activities, ARIS2 may transfer information to other countries. By submitting your information to ARIS2 via the websites, or in connection with your interactions with ARIS2 offline, you consent to such transfers and to the processing of this information in other countries.

Responses to legal requests

ARIS2 reserves the right to share your information to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law. 

In the event of bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this privacy policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

Your data rights

ARIS2 complies with all applicable data privacy laws and regulations including, but not limited to, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Under these laws and regulations, you may have certain rights to your data. Should you wish to exercise any of these rights, please send an email request to with "Data Privacy Request" in the subject line, and in the email, please identify the specific privacy right you request assistance with. Please note additional information may be requested prior to fulfilling a request and that ARIS2 reserves the right to charge a fee, where permitted, to cover the cost of certain requests. 

How do I contact you if there is an issue?

If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy or about the use of your personal information, please feel free to contact us by email at
