Instructions to reviewer

General principles

We ask the reviewer to primarily evaluate the news value and scientific quality of the submission and to motivate any major criticism conveyed to the authors. We do not expect or request detailed language checking, but appreciate information on the quality of the English. If revisions are needed, we may return the paper for correction. The quality and necessity of figures/photos should preferably be commented on as well as the need for Tables.

Acta Dermato-Venereologica prefers succinct reports without repetitions in Introduction, Results and Discussion.

Specific comments

Case reports: Only reports of high originality and an extensive work up of the case will be considered for publication as full reports (with abstract). Most case reports will, if accepted, be presented as Short Communications (without abstract). Please inform the Editor if you feel that the paper is strong enough to be a full report. A Short Communication should fit within 2 printed pages, including figures and tables. However, e-supplements may additionally be accepted. Occasionally, a case report with little news value but a high educational value may be accepted as Quiz.
