Place the number of the references at the end of the sentence to which the reference is related. Use commas to separate multiple reference numbers. For example:

"Bond strength of composite resin to dentin is influenced by the presence of a smear layer.4,5,8-15

If more than one reference is contained in a sentence, then number the reference immediately following the text that refers to the reference. For example:

"Bailey2 found that 46% showed signs of metastasis while Varner3 found only 28%."

FIGURES AND LEGENDS

Photographs must be in color; in focus, free of distracting artifacts, and consistent in exposure. Place any required labels or arrows on images prior to uploading. Images must be at least 600 by 450 pixels (proportional height) in size when in landscape orientation with a resolution of at least 300 pixels per inch. Graphs should be approximately 500 pixels wide so that all labeling can be read with data points clearly visible. Substantially larger images must be avoided to prevent file transmission and electronic manuscript processing errors. Radiographs, drawings, and graphs can be in black and white but color images are preferred.

File names for images must be clearly labeled according to the order in which they appear, (fig-01, fig-02 etc.). Images can only be submitted in TIFF, PSD, and JPEG file formats. If images are produced in PowerPoint, then they must be saved as a JPEG file before uploading during the submission process.

All images are to be placed in numerical order following the reference list and accompanied by a legend describing the content of the image as follows:

Figure

Figure 9. Histologic features demonstrating perivascular eosinophilic condensation and hyalinization (H&E stain at 20x magnification).

Call outs must be placed in the body of the manuscript to indicate where an image is to be located. Example:

"The giant cells were seen multifocally rather than evenly dispersed throughout the background stroma. Of particular note, blood vessels within the stroma showed a prominent condensation and hyalinization of the peripheral collagen (Figure 9)."

TABLES

Tables are placed in numerical order at the end of the manuscript following the list of figures. A legend is to accompany all tables and call outs are to be placed in the body of the text to indicate where the table is to be located in the article.

The tables function in Microsoft Word is to be used to create data tables rather than using columns of tabbed information. Example:

Title page must be placed as the first page of the manuscript text file and should contain the following information:

Table 2. Baseline demographic characteristics of subjects who completed the study.
