Guidelines for manuscript preparation, submission, and manuscript format: Field of vision
Highly influential scientists are invited to write field of vision commentaries on recent perspectives of seminal articles, on hot topic articles, or the latest articles in the research field in order to keep readers at the forefront of research and increase the impact of their clinical research. Seminal (classic) articles are papers that are included in the Web of Knowledge and which have received a large number of citations (ranking in the top 1%) after being published for more than 3 years, reflecting the article’s quality and impact on the field. Hot topic articles are papers that are included in the Web of Knowledge and have received a large number of citations after being published for no more than 2 years, reflecting their representation of cutting-edge trends in scientific research. Latest articles are the most recently published high-quality papers that are included in PubMed and which reflect the latest trends in their research field. In general, these commentary type articles will focus on the status quo of the overall research in the field, highlighting the most important research topics, the problems that have now been resolved and remain to be resolved, and the future research directions that may maximize the practical impact on a field. The basic information for the article that is the subject of these types of commentaries will be clearly stated at the beginning of the new article and will include author names, article title, journal name, year, volume, and inclusive page numbers.
