Aims and Scope 

Anatomical Science International (formerly titled Kaibogaku Zasshi) is the official English journal of the Japanese Association of Anatomists and publishes original research articles dealing with morphological sciences in animals, with a primary focus on humans and other mammals (although exceptions may be considered by the editor for other animals).
In addition to Original Research Articles on molecular, cellular, histological and gross anatomical studies on humans and on normal and experimental animals, as well as functional morphological, biochemical, physiological and behavioral studies if they include morphological analysis, the journal welcomes:
- Case Reports on gross anatomy, highlighting anatomically important data that analyze the process of morphogenesis. Reports merely describing variations will not be accepted
- Methods papers, describing new and useful techniques and their application in the above fields
- Review papers, which are usually invited by the Editors
- Miscellaneous items such as letters to the editor, essays, book reviews, and commentaries

Acceptance 

The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its significance to our readership. Except where otherwise stated, manuscripts are peer reviewed by two anonymous reviewers and the Editor. The Editorial Board reserves the right to refuse any material for publication and advises that authors should retain copies of submitted manuscripts and correspondence. Final acceptance or rejection rests with the Editorial Board.
  • Certification Form
A copy of the certification form, which is available at http://www.springer.com/12565, must be submitted to the journal’s editorial office by uploading it as a PDF via Editorial Manager. IMPORTANT: Upon receipt of Certification for Manuscript Submission, manuscripts are officially recognized as submissions.

Submission of Manuscripts 

All articles submitted to the journal must comply with these instructions. Failure to do so will result in return of the manuscript and possible delay in publication. Manuscripts should be written so that they are intelligible to the professional reader who is not a specialist in the particular field. Where contributions are judged as acceptable for publication on the basis of scientific content, the Editor or the Publisher reserves the right to modify typescripts to eliminate ambiguity and repetition and improve communication between author and reader. If extensive alterations are required, the manuscript will be returned to the author for revision.
Manuscripts must be submitted online at http://www.editorialmanager.com/ansi . Electronic submission substantially reduces the editorial processing and reviewing times and shortens overall publication times. Please follow the hyperlink "Submit online" on the right and upload all of your manuscript files following the instructions given on the screen.
Digital figures must be submitted in one of following formats: JPEG, TIFF, PDF or EPS. MS Office files are also acceptable. Halftone illustration requires a resolution of at least 300 dpi. Digital images supplied only as low-resolution files cannot be used.
  • Covering Letter
Papers are accepted for publication in the journal on the understanding that the content has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. This must be stated in the covering letter. The covering letter must contain an acknowledgment that all authors have contributed significantly, and that all authors are in agreement with the content of the manuscript. In keeping with the latest guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, each author's contribution to the paper is to be quantified.
Manuscripts submitted for publication must contain a statement to the effect that all human studies have been approved by the appropriate ethics committee and have therefore been performed in accordance with the ethical standards laid down in the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki and all subsequent revisions.
All investigations on human subjects must include a statement that the subject gave informed consent and patient anonymity must be preserved.
Any experiments involving the use of human embryonic stem cells and ooctyes must have been undertaken according to the legislation and ethical guidelines of the country in which the research was undertaken and have received the appropriate legislative and ethics approval to conduct the research.
Experiments using animals must adhere to internationally accepted guidelines for the use of animals in research. The purpose of the experiments must have been to obtain significant scientific information relevant to humans or other animals. Authors must declare whether or not prior approval for experiments was obtained from an animal experimentation ethics committee, animal care and use committee, equivalent committee or relevant body in the country of question. The name of the committee or relevant body must be included.
The use of wild animals for research must comply with relevant national regulations. Animals should not be taken from natural habitats unless animals bred in captivity are unavailable or unsuitable for the scientific purpose. Authors from Japan are particularly referred to the Wildlife Protection and Hunting Law and the Law for the Conservation of Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna.
Papers from countries where such committees are not established, or if such evidence is not provided, will be considered in the light of the Japanese national guidelines.
Anatomical Science International retains the right to reject any manuscript on the basis of unethical conduct of human, human embryo or animal studies.
Authors should declare any financial support or relationships that may pose conflict of interest.

Preparation of the Manuscript 

Submissions should be doubled-spaced, on A4 size (297x210 mm). The top, bottom and side margins should be 30 mm. All pages should be numbered consecutively, beginning with the title page. Indent new paragraphs. Turn the hyphenation option off, using only those hyphens that are essential to the meaning.
  • Word limits
・ Authors should note that the following word limits apply.
・ Review papers: no limits.
・ Original articles: no limits.
・ Case reports: maximum 2000 words including references. One table or figure may be included.
・ Methods Papers: maximum 3000 words (excluding the list of references). Numbers of tables and figures are not limited
・ Miscellaneous: maximum 1000 words (no references).
  • Style
The journal uses US spelling and authors should therefore follow the latest edition of the Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary. All measurements must be given in SI units. Abbreviations should be used sparingly and only where they ease the reader's task by reducing repetition of long, technical terms. Initially use the word in full, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses. Thereafter use the abbreviation. Upon its first use in the title, abstract and text, the common name of a species should be followed by the scientific name (genus, species and authority) in parentheses. However, for well-known species, the scientific name may be omitted from the article title. If no common name exists in English, only the scientific name should be used. Drugs should be referred to by their generic names, rather than by brand names.
  • Text formatting
- Manuscripts should be submitted in Word. Save your file in doc format. Do not submit docx files.
- Use a normal, plain font (e.g. 10-point Times Roman) for text.
- Turn the hyphenation option off.
- Take care not to use l (ell) for 1 (one), O (capital o) for 0 (zero) or ß (German esszett) for beta (Greek beta). Do not use double-byte characters.
- Do not use field functions.
- Use a table editor function, not spreadsheets, to make tables. Ensure that each data point is contained within a unique cell, i.e. do not use carriage returns within cells.
  • Parts of the Manuscript
Manuscripts should be presented in the following order: (i) title page, (ii) abstract and keywords, (iii) text, (iv) acknowledgments, (v) references, (vi) appendices, (vii) figure legends, (viii) tables (each table complete with title and footnotes) and (ix) figures. Footnotes to the text are not allowed and any such material should be incorporated into the text as parenthetical matter.
・ Title page
The title page should contain (i) the title of the paper, (ii) the full names of the authors and (iii) the addresses of the institutions at which the work was carried out together with (iv) the full postal and email address, plus facsimile and telephone numbers, of the author to whom correspondence about the manuscript, proofs and requests for offprints should be sent. The present address of any author, if different from that where the work was carried out, should be supplied in a footnote. The title should be short, informative and contain the major key words. A short running title (less than 40 characters, including spaces) should also be provided.
・ Abstract, mini-abstract and keywords
All articles must have a brief abstract that states in 250 words or fewer the purpose, basic procedures, main findings and principal conclusions of the study. The abstract should not contain abbreviations or references. In addition, a mini-abstract summarizing within 30 words the significant conclusion of the study should be submitted in the manuscript, to appear in the table of contents in the printed version. Five keywords (for the purposes of indexing) should be supplied below the abstract, in alphabetical order, and should be taken from those recommended by the US National Library of Medicine's Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) browser list (www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html).
・ Text
Authors should use subheadings to divide the sections of their manuscript for original articles: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgments, References.
・ Acknowledgments
The source of financial grants and other funding should be acknowledged, including a frank declaration of the authors' industrial links and affiliations. The contribution of colleagues or institutions should also be acknowledged. Thanks to anonymous reviewers are not allowed.
・ Disclosure of potential conflicts of interest
Authors must disclose all relationships or interests that could have direct or potential influence or impart bias on the work. Although an author may not feel there is any conflict, disclosure of relationships and interests provides a more complete and transparent process, leading to an accurate and objective assessment of the work. Awareness of a real or perceived conflicts of interest is a perspective to which the readers are entitled. This is not meant to imply that a financial relationship with an organization that sponsored the research or compensation received for consultancy work is inappropriate. Examples of potential conflicts of interests that are directly or indirectly related to the research may include but are not limited to the following:
  • Research grants from funding agencies (please give the research funder and the grant number)
  • Honoraria for speaking at symposia
  • Financial support for attending symposia
  • Financial support for educational programs
  • Employment or consultation
  • Support from a project sponsor
  • Position on advisory board or board of directors or other type of management relationships
  • Multiple affiliations
  • Financial relationships, for example equity ownership or investment interest
  • Intellectual property rights (e.g. patents, copyrights and royalties from such rights)
  • Holdings of spouse and/or children that may have financial interest in the work
In addition, interests that go beyond financial interests and compensation (non-financial interests) that may be important to readers should be disclosed. These may include but are not limited to personal relationships or competing interests directly or indirectly tied to this research, or professional interests or personal beliefs that may influence your research.
The corresponding author collects the conflict of interest disclosure forms from all authors. In author collaborations where formal agreements for representation allow it, it is sufficient for the corresponding author to sign the disclosure form on behalf of all authors. Examples of forms can be found
The corresponding author will include a summary statement in the text of the manuscript in a separate section before the reference list, that reflects what is recorded in the potential conflict of interest disclosure form(s).
See below examples of disclosures:
Funding: This study was funded by X (grant number X).
Conflict of Interest: Author A has received research grants from Company A. Author B has received a speaker honorarium from Company X and owns stock in Company Y. Author C is a member of committee Z.
If no conflict exists, the authors should state:
Conflict of Interest: The authors declare that they have no conflict of interest.
・ References
The Harvard (author, date) system of referencing is used. In the text give the author's name followed by the year in parentheses: Smith (2000). If there are two authors use 'and': Smith and Jones (2001). When reference is made to a work by three or more authors, the first name followed by et al. should be used: MacDonald et al. (2002).
In the list references should be listed in alphabetical order. Cite the names of all authors when there are six or fewer; when more than seven list the first three followed by et al. Names of journals should be abbreviated in the style used in Index Medicus.
Reference to unpublished data and personal communications should not appear in the list but should be cited in the text only (e.g. Smith A, 2000, unpublished data).

・ Tables
Tables should be self-contained and complement, but not duplicate, information contained in the text. Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals. Each table should be presented on a separate sheet with a comprehensive but concise title above the table. Tables should be double-spaced and vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Column headings should be brief, with units of measurement in parentheses; all abbreviations should be defined in footnotes. Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lowercase letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body. Statistical measures such as SD or SEM should be identified in the headings. The table and its title/footnotes should be understandable without reference to the text. Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table title.
・ Figures
All illustrations (line drawings and photographs) are classified as figures. Figures should be numbered using Arabic numerals and cited in consecutive order in the text. Figures should be sized to fit within the column (84 mm), intermediate (129 mm) or the full text width (174 mm). The publisher reserves the right to reduce or enlarge figures.
Magnifications should be indicated using a scale bar on the illustration. Figure parts should be denoted by lowercase letters. If illustrations are supplied with uppercase labeling, lowercase letters will still be used in the figure legends and citations.
Line figures should be supplied as sharp, black and white graphs or diagrams, drawn with a computer graphics package; lettering should be included and should be sized to be no larger than the journal text.
Photographs of human subjects need to be cropped sufficiently to prevent the subject being recognized, or an eye bar used. Individual photographs forming a composite figure should be of equal contrast, to facilitate printing, and should be accurately squared.
For more information about preparing your illustrations electronically, please follow the hyperlink to the artwork instructions on the right.
・ Figure legends
Type figure legends on a separate page. Legends should be concise but comphrehensive: the figure and the legend must be understandable without references to the text. Include definitions of any symbols used and define/explain all abbreviations used and units of measurement. Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the legend.
・ Electronic supplementary material
If Electronic supplementary material (ESM) is submitted, it will be published as received from the author in the online version only.
ESM may consist of
- information that cannot be printed: animations, video clips, sound recordings
- information that is more convenient in electronic form: sequences, spectral data, etc.
- large original data sets, e.g. additional tables, illustrations, etc.
- If supplying any ESM, the text must make specific mention of the material as a citation, similar to that of figures and tables (e.g., ". . . as shown in Animation 3.").
For details on formats and other information, please follow the hyperlink to the specific instructions for electronic supplementary material on the right.

Ethical Responsibilities of Authors 

This journal is committed to upholding the integrity of the scientific record. As a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) the journal will follow the COPE guidelines on how to deal with potential acts of misconduct.
Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which could damage the trust in the journal, the professionalism of scientific authorship, and ultimately the entire scientific endeavour. Maintaining integrity of the research and its presentation can be achieved by following the rules of good scientific practice, which include:
  • The manuscript has not been submitted to more than one journal for simultaneous consideration.
  • The manuscript has not been published previously (partly or in full), unless the new work concerns an expansion of previous work (please provide transparency on the re-use of material to avoid the hint of text-recycling (“self-plagiarism”)).
  • A single study is not split up into several parts to increase the quantity of submissions and submitted to various journals or to one journal over time (e.g. “salami-publishing”).
  • No data have been fabricated or manipulated (including images) to support your conclusions
  • No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the author’s own (“plagiarism”). Proper acknowledgements to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted.
    Important note: the journal may use software to screen for plagiarism.
  • Consent to submit has been received explicitly from all co-authors, as well as from the responsible authorities - tacitly or explicitly - at the institute/organization where the work has been carried out, before the work is submitted.
  • Authors whose names appear on the submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work and therefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.
  • Authors are strongly advised to ensure the correct author group, corresponding author, and order of authors at submission. Changes of authorship or in the order of authors are not accepted after acceptance of a manuscript.
  • Adding and/or deleting authors at revision stage may be justifiably warranted. A letter must accompany the revised manuscript to explain the role of the added and/or deleted author(s). Further documentation may be required to support your request.
  • Requests for addition or removal of authors as a result of authorship disputes after acceptance are honored after formal notification by the institute or independent body and/or when there is agreement between all authors.
  • Upon request authors should be prepared to send relevant documentation or data in order to verify the validity of the results. This could be in the form of raw data, samples, records, etc. Sensitive information in the form of confidential proprietary data is excluded.
If there is a suspicion of misconduct, the journal will carry out an investigation following the COPE guidelines. If, after investigation, the allegation seems to raise valid concerns, the accused author will be contacted and given an opportunity to address the issue. If misconduct has been established beyond reasonable doubt, this may result in the Editor-in-Chief’s implementation of the following measures, including, but not limited to:
  • If the article is still under consideration, it may be rejected and returned to the author.
  • If the article has already been published online, depending on the nature and severity of the infraction, either an erratum will be placed with the article or in severe cases complete retraction of the article will occur. The reason must be given in the published erratum or retraction note. Please note that retraction means that the paper is maintained on the platform, watermarked "retracted" and explanation for the retraction is provided in a note linked to the watermarked article.
  • The author’s institution may be informed.

Research Data Policy 

The journal encourages authors, where possible and applicable, to deposit data that support the findings of their research in a public repository. Authors and editors who do not have a preferred repository should consult Springer Nature’s list of repositories and research data policy.
General repositories - for all types of research data - such as figshare and Dryad may also be used.
Datasets that are assigned digital object identifiers (DOIs) by a data repository may be cited in the reference list. Data citations should include the minimum information recommended by DataCite: authors, title, publisher (repository name), identifier.
Springer Nature provides a research data policy support service for authors and editors, which can be contacted at researchdata@springernature.com.
This service provides advice on research data policy compliance and on finding research data repositories. It is independent of journal, book and conference proceedings editorial offices and does not advise on specific manuscripts.

After acceptance 

Upon acceptance of your article you will receive a link to the special Author Query Application at Springer’s web page where you can sign the Copyright Transfer Statement online and indicate whether you wish to order OpenChoice, offprints, or printing of figures in color. Once the Author Query Application has been completed, your article will be processed and you will receive the proofs.
  • Open Choice
In addition to the normal publication process (whereby an article is submitted to the journal and access to that article is granted to customers who have purchased a subscription), Springer now provides an alternative publishing option at an additional cost (€2,200): Springer Open Choice.
A Springer Open Choice article receives all the benefits of a regular subscription-based article, but in addition is made available publicly through Springer's online platform SpringerLink. We regret that Springer Open Choice cannot be ordered for published articles.
Springer Open Choice [http://springer.com/openchoice]
  • Copyright transfer
Authors will be asked to transfer copyright of the article to the Japanese Association of Anatomists. This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under copyright laws.
Open Choice articles do not require transfer of copyright as the copyright remains with the author. In opting for open access, they agree to the Springer Open Choice License.
  • Offprints/Reprints
Offprints can be ordered by the corresponding author.
  • Color in print
Online publication of color illustrations is free of charge. For color in the print version, authors will be expected to make a contribution towards the extra costs (€950 (plus VAT) per article). Otherwise the figures will be printed in black and white. Please note that, in such cases, it is authors’ responsibility to prepare figures to be illustrative enough to convey the necessary information even after they are converted into black and white.
  • Proofreading
The purpose of the proof is to check for typesetting errors and the completeness and accuracy of the text, tables and figures. Substantial changes in content, e.g. new results, corrected values, title and authorship, are not allowed without the approval of the Editor. After online publication, further changes can only be made in the form of an Erratum, which will be hyperlinked to the article.
  • Online First
The article will be published online after receipt of the corrected proofs. This is the official first publication citable with the DOI. After release of the printed version, the paper can also be cited by issue and page numbers. After online publication, further changes can only be made in the form of an Erratum, which will be hyperlinked to the article.

Open Choice 

In addition to the normal publication process (whereby an article is submitted to the journal and access to that article is granted to customers who have purchased a subscription), Springer provides an alternative publishing option: Springer Open Choice. A Springer Open Choice article receives all the benefits of a regular subscription-based article, but in addition is made available publicly through Springer’s online platform SpringerLink.
