Writing Rules

JEIMP publishes the article in the English language. English articles and English abstracts should be checked by a professional linguist before being submitted. The spelling and grammatical errors in the manuscript are considered by our English language consultant and editorial committee. If the language does not conform to a sufficient English linguistic structure, the editors may refer to an external person or foundation for correction of the English writing with certification.

After submission of the article, the name of the authors, the order of the authors, and the corresponding author are not allowed to change. If it is mandatory, the article should be withdrawn and the article should be resubmitted.

The authors should be in adherence to the following issues to make the process faster. Manuscripts are double-spaced with Microsoft Word, and titles (Abstract, Introduction, Material and Method, Results, Discussion, Conclusion(s), References, and Declarations) are written in 12 pt., other parts of articles are written in 11 pt., 2.5 cm space should be written at the top and bottom. The main title should be written in 14 pt. The writing style should be Times New Roman. “System International” (SI) units should be used. Figures, tables, pictures, and graphics should be referenced in the text. Abbreviations should be given in parentheses where the word first appears. English should be contiguous (50% is correct, 50 % is not), and a period (25.50) should be used in English manuscripts.

The authors should be adherent to the restrictions in word count according to the type of article. See in detail: https://jeimp.com/index.php/pub/about/submissions#authorGuidelines


Keywords are specific terms that define what your paper is about. Keywords are important for search engine optimization and enhance the discoverability of your work and its impact. They also help editors identify peer reviewers for your manuscript.

We ask authors to use Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) descriptors as keywords to optimize discoverability. MeSH provides two tools to help authors select MeSH descriptors as keywords:

  • MeSH on Demand – input text from an abstract to automatically identify related terms
  • MeSH Browser – search for related terms and descriptors using an existing list of keywords

You can start to type in a term and select from a list of suggested matches or search the full list of keywords. If your required MeSH descriptor is not available in the keyword list please contact the editorial office who will arrange for it to be added. You will be able to include this in the revision.

Original articles, case reports, medicine and public health, systemic review, and meta-analysis must contain at least 3 keywords. Keywords should be given in accordance with 'Medical Subject Headings (MeSH)' (www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/MBrowser.html). Keywords should be at the bottom of the abstract page.


Abbreviations: The first occurrence of the word in the text should be abbreviated in parentheses and the same abbreviations are used throughout the text. For internationally used abbreviations, the source of "Scientific Spelling Rules" can be consulted. Abbreviations cannot be used in the abstract. Words that are generally accepted by everyone and used in abbreviations (COVID-19, DNA, RNA, etc.) can also be used without being explicit.

Figures, Pictures, Tables, and Graphics: Figures, pictures, tables, and graphics should be numbered in accordance with the order in which they are processed in the article, and each should be sent on a separate page after the references section in the main paper. The places where figures, pictures, tables, and graphics are used in the text should be indicated at the end of the relevant sentence. Explanations should be added below for figures and pictures, and above for tables and graphics.

If the figures, pictures, tables, and graphics to be added to the Word file of the article are larger than 1 MB, they can be added to the system as a separate jpg or gif file. In this case, the jpg or gif file should be named according to the numbers in the word form of the article. Figures, pictures, tables, or graphics must be prepared with a resolution of at least 300 dpi and added to the system in order to ensure the standard in print quality.
Abbreviations used in figures, pictures, tables, and graphics should be specified in the description of the relevant image.

Figures, pictures, and graphics should be at most 16*20 cm, at least 8 cm in size, and should be sent undeformed by enlarging or reducing.
Written permission must be obtained if figures, pictures, tables, and graphics that have been previously published or published elsewhere are used. This permission should be stated in the description of figures, pictures, tables, and graphics.

References: References should be uniform and written in accordance with the AMA citation guide (download).
