Focus and Scope
original experimental and clinical investigations, case reports, letters, book reviews and editorial comments. The IPS editors endorse the principles embodied in the Helsinki Declaration and expect all research involving humans to be conducted in accordance with these principles. For animal
experimentation reported in the Journal, it is expected that investigators will have observed the Interdisciplinary Principles and Guidelines for the Use of Animals in Research, Testing and Education issued by the New York Academy of Sciences’ Adhoc Committee on Animal Research. All human and animal research must gain acceptance of the local ethical committee, which acceptance should be indicated in the manuscript.
