Author Guidelines

The Journal of Wound Management. Official journal of the European Wound Management Association (short form: JWM) publishes original, double blind, peer-reviewed material including Review articles, Research papers, Clinical studies, Letters where our Editorial Executives comment on interesting case scenarios, and “Clinical Challenges” – discussing difficult or complex cases.

The JWM also welcomes articles that provide the reader with a thorough understanding of a specific methodology or technique pertinent to wound healing studies. These articles will be subjected to the same peer review process as regular research articles.

The journal’s editorial board does not enter into negotiations concerning a manuscript. The Editor’s decision is final.

Submissions are only accepted which match the profile of the journal, are currently not under consideration by any another journal, and if the author (or team of authors) hold all copyrights for the submitted manuscript and corresponding material. The author accepts full responsibility for the originality of the work, for its scientific and formal accuracy. Redundant publication, the inappropriate division of study outcomes into more than one article (salami slicing), may result in rejection or a request to merge submitted manuscripts, and the correction of published articles. The journal does not support duplicate publication - submitting the same study to two journals or publishing more or less the same study in two journals.

Submitted research articles may be either short or long: short-format manuscripts should be up to a maximum of 2,000 words with 2 to 4 figures. These shorter papers may be published as Reports. Long-format manuscripts should be up to a maximum of 4,000 words with 5 to 8 figures. Exceptions can be discussed with the Editor and the Editorial Board.

English is the language of the journal and all submissions should be made in english and submitted through journal electronic submission system.

Please follow the instructions on the website. If you have any difficulties with online submission, or with any of the guidelines below, please discuss the matter with the Journal of Wound Management Secretariat, tel: +45 70 20 03 05.
