Aims and scope
The European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology is a distinguished international journal that publishes original clinical reports and clinically relevant experimental studies, as well as short communications presenting new results of special interest. Founded in 1864, the journal has continued to serve as a source of useful clinical information and as a stimulus for scientific discussion for more than a century. With peer review by a respected international editorial board and prompt English-language publication, the Archives provides rapid dissemination of clinical and clinically related information by authors from throughout the world. This particular feature makes the Archives the journal of choice for readers who want to be informed about the continuing state of the art concerning basic sciences and the diagnosis and management of diseases of the head and neck on an international level.
Manuscripts should be submitted to the Editorial office electronically via EditorialManager (see "Instructions for authors").
Manuscripts submitted for publication must contain a statement to the effect that all human studies have been reviewed by the appropriate ethics committee and have therefore been performed in accordance with the ethical standards laid down in an appropriate version of the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki. It should also be stated clearly in the text that all persons gave their informed consent prior to their inclusion in the study. Details that might disclose the identity of the subjects under study should be omitted.
