INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF OZONE THERAPY is a clinical and practice journal documenting the current state of ozonetherapy practice. The journal publishes original clinical observations, descriptions of new techniques or procedures, case reports and articles on the ethical and social aspects of health care. Papers are accepted on the understanding that they are subject to peer review, editorial revision and, in some cases, comment by the editors. Manuscripts are examined by independent anonymous reviewers. All authors remain anonymous to the reviewers, in line with international standards. Manuscripts submitted in English will be edited and corrected if necessary. Articles and other material published in the journal represent the opinions of the authors and should not be construed to reflect the opinions of the publisher.
Submissions should be accompanied by a covering letter signed by all authors stating that a) the paper is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere; b) all authors have been personally and actively involved in work leading to the report and will thus hold themselves jointly and individually responsible for its content; c) all relevant ethical safeguards have been met in relation to patient protection; d) an acknowledgement of any financial support from commercial sources or pecuniary interest in such enterprises that could pose a conflict of interest including consultations for any product or process mentioned in the submission. Failure to make such disclosure in the covering letter will result in the manuscript being rejected. All manuscripts and correspondence should be sent to the Editor- in-Chief, Matteo Bonetti. Manuscript selection is based on peer review. The guidelines to authors are based on the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals (Ann Intern Med 108: 258-265, 1988).
The publishers will inform the author(s) in case they want to make use of their limited copyright. In case of sales of reprints or of other reproductions of the article in printed or electronic media, the publisher will compensate the authors financially or by other means.

Instructions for Submission of Electronic Illustrations
Illustrations
- Figures can be submitted as follows.
1) Via the internet (e-mail): elisabetta@centauro.it
• Digital images (originals or images acquired by scanner) must have the following parameters:
Black and white figures: Images must be acquired using the grey scale with a minimum resolution of 300 pixels per inch or 150 pixels per cm. Images must have a base of at least 8.1 cm for one item or a minimum base of 16.9 cm for several items.
• Colour figures: Images must be acquired using the full colour process CMYK method with a minimum resolution of 300 pixels per inch or 150 pixels per cm. Images must have a base of at least 8.1 cm for one item or a minimum base of 16.9 cm for several items. The RGB method is only recommended for video reproductions as the quality of printed figures is poor.
• Images must be saved in .tiff format. Images in .jpg format are not acceptable as they tend to lose scanning details even at high resolution.
Image definition also depends on the enlargement factor: a large low resolution image can be reduced for publication in proportion (+/- 24%) thereby obtaining optimal printing resolution. But enlargement of a small high resolution image will highlight all its flaws giving it a pixelled effect.
• Do not submit figures already paged in Word, .ppt or other documents or inserted in web pages as they are low resolution images unsuitable for printing.
• Figures in .dcm (Dicom) format can be submitted as .dcm and .tiff files and the editorial office will process the images for printing.
• Illustrations can be compressed using StuffIt, Aladdin or Zip programmes.
• Do not reduce image resolution to speed up electronic transmission times but submit compressed files as above.
2) If it is not possible to send figures via the internet, images can be sent by express courier in the following formats:
• Figures can be submitted on a CD-ROM or DVD, copied in ISO 9006 format legible on PC and MAC. Floppy Disks are not recommended.
