How to submit

Online Submission
TID uses the online system "Editorial System" for manuscript submission, double blind peer review and editorial handling. Submissions received by e-mail will not be considered.

Receipt of a manuscript is acknowledged via an automated email from the online submission system. This includes a manuscript tracking number, which should be provided in all correspondence with the editorial office with regards to that manuscript. We kindly request that only the corresponding author is in contact with the editorial office, on behalf of all of the authors of the manuscript.

Submission conditions
During submission, you will need to accept and confirm the following four conditions:

1) All authors of the manuscript meet the ICMJE criteria for authorship. All authors must have read and agreed to its content and are accountable for all aspects of the manuscript. The ICMJE recommends that authorship be based on the following 4 criteria:

Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work.
a) Drafting the work or reviewing it critically for important intellectual content.
b) Final approval of the version to be published.
c) Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.
d) In addition to being accountable for the parts of the work done, an author should be able to identify which co-authors are responsible for specific other parts of the work. In addition, authors should have confidence in the integrity of the contributions of their co-authors.

2) The article must be original, must not already been published in a journal, and is not currently under consideration by another journal (prior publication as a conference abstract or in an abstract book is allowed).

3) You agree to the provision of Creative Commons International Attribution 4.0 License (CC BY 4.0) or the Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License (CC BY-ND 4.0), unless another license is mandated by employers (for instance where Crown Copyright applies or researchers are US government employees).

4) You agree that an article-processing charge (APC) will apply for each article accepted for publication in Tobacco Induced Diseases. Authors from LIC are automatically provided full waivers to publish free of charge. Waivers for manuscripts from Low Middle-Income Countries are evaluated on a case by case basis. As tobacco use is a global public health issue our vision is that it is imperative to aid regional tobacco control research from developing countries and hence our belief is that Article Processing Charges from High and High Middle-Income Countries are to be used to support the publication of research from Low and Low Middle-Income countries

The APC for an article will be determined from the date on which the article is accepted for publication. Should no waiver be applied the APC is 2400 Euro. No taxes are included in this charge. If you are based in the European Union, Value-Added Tax (VAT) at the rate applicable in the respective country will be added. VAT charge may also be recorded under the EU reverse charge method, in this case, institutions are required to supply us with their VAT number. Editorials, corrections, and Letters-to-the-Editor do not have any APC.

For all transactions, a legal invoice is issued according to European and National Tax legislation. A Proforma invoice can be requested at the time of acceptance should that be needed by the administrative services of the author's institution.
