  1. Keywords: Authors should provide a list of 3-5 keywords that describe the main topics of the article.


  1. Introduction: The introduction should provide background information and explain the significance of the research question.


  1. Methods: Authors should describe the methods used to conduct the study, including the sample size, data collection procedures, and statistical analysis.


  1. Results: Authors should present the main findings of the study in a clear and concise manner. Tables should be clearly included in the result section.

  1. Conclusion: The conclusion should summarize the main findings and provide recommendations for future research.


  1. References: Authors should follow the citation style recommended by the journal and provide a list of references at the end of the article.

The Vancouver style is a citation style used for citation. It is a numeric citation style, meaning that references are numbered in the order in which they appear in the text, and the corresponding numbers are used in the reference list.

When citing articles with a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), the DOI should be included at the end of the reference. Here's an example of a Vancouver style reference with a DOI:

  1. Leabi, O., Abed, A., Daway, A. Thyroid Functions in Females with Anal Diseases. Basrah Journal of Surgery, 2023; 29(1): 55-60. doi: 10.33762/bsurg.2023.138515.1046

In this example, the reference number is 1, and the DOI is included at the end of the reference after the page numbers. The DOI is preceded by "doi:" and followed by a space before the actual DOI number.

The article titled "Thyroid Functions in Females with Anal Diseases" was authored by Leabi, O., Abed, A., and Daway, A. and published in the Basrah Journal of Surgery in 2023, volume 29, issue 1, pages 55-60. The article has a DOI of 10.33762/bsurg.2023.138515.1046.

In order to get the correct DOI you can submit the reference list using the cross reference website

  1. Ethics: Authors should ensure that their research has been conducted in an ethical manner and that they have obtained the necessary approvals.


  1. Conflict of Interest: Authors should disclose any potential conflicts of interest that may have influenced their research.
  2. Falsification and fabrication: Falsification and fabrication of data are serious ethical violations in academic research and publishing. Falsification refers to the manipulation of research materials, equipment, or processes, or the changing or omitting of data or results such that the research is not accurately represented. Fabrication involves making up data or results and recording or reporting them as if they were real.

In the context of academic publishing, including in journals such as the Basrah Journal of Surgery, data falsification and fabrication are considered unacceptable practices and can result in severe consequences. Authors are expected to adhere to the highest standards of research integrity and ethics.

If an author is found to have falsified or fabricated data, the journal may reject the manuscript, retract a published article, and may report the incident to the author's institution or relevant authorities. Additionally, it can damage the author's reputation and have long-term consequences for their career in academia and research.

It's crucial for authors to conduct their research with integrity, honesty, and transparency, and to adhere to the ethical guidelines and standards set forth by the journal to which they are submitting their work.
