JAFIB publishes original articles related to the diagnosis, management and research of atrial fibrillation. The content of the JAFIB is determined by the Editors.
JAFIB, the Publisher, and the Editors of its publications assume no responsibility for the statements expressed by the contributors (and/or authors) of the articles.
The manuscript which is submitted to the journal must not contain previously published material or material under consideration for publication elsewhere. Accepted manuscripts become the property of JAFIB and may not be republished.
All manuscripts will undergo peer review. A final review and a subsequent decision relative to publication will then be made by a JAFIB editor.
Each author thus also acknowledges responsibility for the integrity of the manuscript, assures the originality of the manuscript, and guarantees that duplicate or redundant publications or submissions have not occurred. The Editors reserve the right to request the original data obtained in the investigation. Authors are responsible for all statements made in the text.
These instructions are based in part on recommendations in the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journal [Ann. Intern. Med. 1997; 126: 36-47]. Variations from guidelines in this publication reflect the individual style of JAFIB.
The authors should submit the manuscript as a complete file.

Organize the manuscript as follows: title page, abstract, introduction, material and methods, results, discussion, conclusion, acknowledgments, references, figure legends, and tables.

While the journal encourages the submission of full-length original articles, it will consider the publication of concise case reports. These should be unusually educational and medically important. In addition to a title page (formatted as described above), include a summary (150 word) describing the essence of the report, an introduction (two or three sentences of background information); a case report (written in the past tense) or a description of the technique, and a discussion highlighting the educational value of the case or the technique. References should be limited (no more than 10 preferred) to only those that give essential background material. References, figures, and legends follow the guidelines described above in 'Original Articles.'
Letters to the Editor may be used to describe in an extremely brief manner either an observation of interest to our readers, an opinion relative to the JAFIB, or constructive observations or criticisms of published material.

Letters are published at the discretion of the journal and are subject to editing.
Publishers and authors who wish to have their titles considered for review should send review copies to . Unsolicited book reviews are not considered for publication.
