The original undoctored photograph showed a gorilla named Mjukuu, or "Jookie," examining one of the posters. The image appeared in a 2009 article published by CNN entitled "Girl gorillas go ape for French pinup hunk":
Haematologica is the main tool through which the Ferrata-Storti Foundation, a non-profit organization, promotes the dissemination of new knowledge in the field of hematology. A high quality of articles, immediate free access to everything published and the lowest possible cost for authors are the principles that inspire Haematologica's management.
Original articles. There is no limit to the number of authors, but this must be commensurate with the complexity of the study. The manuscript should be divided into sections under the following subheadings: Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, and References.
Original articles reporting randomized trials must follow CONSORT recommendations, meta-analyses and guidelines PRISMA recommendations, observational studies STROBE recommendations, and studies of diagnostic accuracy STARD guidelines.
Review articles. As a rule, Reviews are by invitation. However, authoritative researchers can submit reviews on topics for which they have demonstrated competence. The maximum number of authors is usually limited to three. Review articles are a maximum 5,000 words long (excluding abstract, tables, figure legends and references) and do not have a specific structure. The reviews should contain an unstructured abstract of a maximum of 250 words (abbreviations only for terms that occur at least twice), and have a maximum of 100 references. Authors are encouraged to describe the methods used for locating, selecting, extracting, and synthesizing data; this is mandatory for systematic reviews (see PRISMA guidelines). The use of tables and figures is strongly encouraged (no limit to their number). When deemed appropriate by the publisher, a graphic artist will redesign submitted figures.
Spotlight Review articles. These brief reviews are by invitation only and are intended to discuss recent advances that have transformed or will transform the hematology field. They are a maximum 3,000 words long (excluding abstract, tables, figure legends and references), have an unstructured abstract of a maximum of 250 words, and a maximum of 40 references. The use of figures summarizing the topics discussed is very welcome.
Perspective articles. The format and editorial guidelines for this type of article are the same as for Reviews article. The perspective articles differ from Reviews articles because they do not require a systematic and exhaustive analysis of the literature, but allow authors to use literature data to freely express their personal opinion on topics and controversies relevant to hematology.
Editorials. Editorials that comment on Haematologica articles are by invitation and are published in the same issue as the commented paper. However, submission of Editorials by authoritative researchers on debated topics or important news is welcome.Editorials have a free structure (no abstract), contain about 1,500 words (excluding tables and references), up to 20 references and may contain two display items (figures and/or tables). No more than two authors are permitted. The use of a figure is strongly encouraged. When deemed appropriate by the publisher, a graphic artist will redesign the submitted figure.
Guideline articles. These should be produced by an international group of experts. These articles are up to 5,000 words long (excluding tables, figure legends and references), and the authors are free to give the text the structure that best suits their purposes. The articles should contain an unstructured abstract of maximum 250 words, can include all the figures and tables that the authors deem necessary, and have a maximum 100 references. We recommend following the PRISMA recommendations for this type of article.
Letters to the Editor. This type of article is dedicated to the publication of original data that can be reported and discussed in no more than 1,500 text words (excluding tables, figure legends and references). Letters have no abstract, no headings, a maximum of three tables and/or figures, and no more than 15 references. Letters should start with a paragraph summarizing the rationale for the study and the major conclusions. When appropriate, the reporting recommendations detailed for Original articles should be followed. Letters can be accompanied by three additional figures/tables/videos (three items overall) in an online supplementary. The use of text in online Supplementary data is not foreseen except for the legends of the figures and the titles of the tables (no Methods).
Comments. This format is used to discuss a recently published article in Haematologica, or cutting edge ideas or developments in the broad field of hematology. Papers containing new data cannot be published with this format. Comments have no abstract, a maximum of 1,000 words in the text and 10 essential references. Comments should not include figures or tables. Please start the comment with a paragraph summarizing the rationale for the comment, citing the article or articles that form the basis for the comment. No more than two authors are allowed.
Protection of human individuals in research. When reporting studies (prospective or retrospective) involving people, medical records, and human tissues, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2013. Authors should also declare that any research involving people, medical records, and human tissues was approved by the relevant institutional review boards or ethics committees and that all human participants gave written informed consent (Haematologica reserves the right to ask the authors or the institution they indicated for a copy of the document). Patients have a right to privacy that should not be violated. Identifying information, including names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published. Photographs and any data that can lead to patient identification can be published only if this is essential for scientific purposes and the subject has signed a specific written informed consent.
A summary (unstructured) of 250 words is required only for Original articles, Reviews, Perspectives, and Guidelines. Do not include references. See Manuscript style for abbreviations and acronyms.
Subheadings. In the types of articles that require structuring of the main text into different sections, we discourage the use of more than one level of subheadings within each section. The style of the different subheadings levels must be consistent.
10.2. Citation of Figures and Tables. References to tables and figures in the same article should be presented in brackets and should specify 'Table' or 'Figure' and the relevant identification number. When reference is made to more than one table or figure, please follow these examples: Figures 1 and 2; Tables 1 and 3; Figures 2-4 and 6; Tables 2, 4 and 6. References to figure panels and subpanels should be presented by adding a capital letter in alphabetic order immediately after the identification number (for example: Figure 1A, Figure 1B). When reference is made to more than one figure panel or subpanel, follow these examples: Figure 2B, C; Figure 3B-D). For references to Figures, Tables or Movies in the Supplementary data, add an S to the number of Figure-Table-Movie (e.g. Movie S1).
The maximum number of figures and tables is indicated above in Types of articles.The authors are strongly encouraged to present only the tables and figures that are essential to understand the meaning of their study in the main text, placing the other data (such as patients' characteristics and primer sequences) in the Supplementary data when this is allowed for that type of article.
11.1.4. Complex, multipanel figures. Multi-paneled figures must be supplied as one file, with each panel clearly labeled. Avoid giving a header to each panel, but give this information in the figure legend. The size and style of letters and labels of different panels must be uniform within each figure and, whenever possible, between figures. See paragraphs 11.1.2 and 11.1.3 for additional technical details. The choice to reduce the number of figures by creating complex panels with a number of items is discouraged. We suggest that authors do not use more than six, simple panels for each figure. As a rule, the figures are to be published on a single page with vertical (portrait) orientation. Please take this into account when structuring your figures to avoid publishing delays resulting from our request to change them. Please, consider placing figures that are very large or do not fit on a single vertical page in the Supplementary data when this is allowed for the type of your article.
The figure below has only four panels, but it contains too many items, which are not always clearly indicated. The writing is too small and difficult to read even when the image is displayed as a full page on a large screen. Furthermore, different sizes and types of characters are used for similar writing. Figures of this type discourage the reader from reading (and therefore citing) the article.
11.1.5. Reproductions and adaptations. The author must obtain written permission for the reproduction and adaptation of material that has already been published. Permission should be obtained from the copyright holder or publisher. Before a manuscript is accepted, Haematologica will need to receive a copy of the written permission. All material presented from other sources should be identified and should be accompanied by a specific reference in the legend confirming that permission for its use had been obtained, for example: 'Adapted from Berger et al. Leukemia 2003, 17, 1820-1826; with permission.' 350c69d7ab
