Instructions to Authors
Submission of Manuscripts
NEW: CrossCheck Plagiarism Software
We would like to inform our authors that we now detect plagiarism more easily through the use of CrossCheck plagiarism software.
Acceptance decisions are made rapidly; authors should receive reviewers' comments within 4 weeks of receipt of the manuscript. Papers which do not conform to the general criteria for publication in Haemophilia will be returned immediately to the authors without detailed review, to avoid unnecessary delay in submission elsewhere. When papers are accepted subject to revision, only a single revised version will be considered; it should be submitted within 3 months of the initial acceptance. The journal aims to publish articles within 4 months of acceptance in revised form.
Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/hae. Full instructions and support are available on the site. Submitting authors will need a user ID and password, which can be obtained on first use of the site. All files must be available in an electronic format, preferably generic rich text format (RTF) or Microsoft Word for text and GIF, JPEG, TIFF, EPS, PNG, Microsoft PowerPoint or Excel for figures. It is recommended that, where possible, figures be embedded into a single Microsoft Word document. Support can be contacted by phone (+1 434-817-2040 ext 167), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or go to http://blackwellsupport.custhelp.com. If you cannot submit online please contact the European Editorial Office. All papers will be refereed by at least two independent referees.
A covering letter must be included, signed by the corresponding author and stating on behalf of all the authors that the work has not been published and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Articles are accepted for publication at the discretion of the Editor(s).
OnlineOpen is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With OnlineOpen, the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley InterScience, as well as deposited in the funding agency's preferred archive. For the full list of terms and conditions, see http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/authorresources/onlineopen.html#OnlineOpen_Terms
Any authors wishing to send their paper OnlineOpen will be required to complete the payment form available from our website at:
Prior to acceptance there is no requirement to inform an Editorial Office that you intend to publish your paper OnlineOpen if you do not wish to. All OnlineOpen articles are treated in the same way as any other article. They go through the journal's standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.
NEW: Pre-submission English-language editing
Authors for whom English is a second language may choose to have their manuscript professionally edited before submission to improve the English. A list of independent suppliers of editing services can be found at www.blackwellpublishing.com/bauthor/english_language.asp. All services are paid for and arranged by the author, and use of one of these services does not guarantee acceptance or preference for publication.
NEW: Change to copyright procedures
Only accepted manuscripts must be accompanied by a completed Copyright Transfer Agreement form and Conflict of Interest Form. All authors must complete the Conflict of Interest Form. When authors receive notification that their paper has been accepted, they must send (faxed or scanned copies are acceptable) the completed forms to the Production Editor:
Jane Rochstad Lim
Wiley Services Singapore Pte Ltd
600 North Bridge Road
#05-01 Parkview Square
Fax: +65 6511 8288
Authors of all manuscripts are required to license copyright in their paper to Blackwell Publishing. Copyright licensing is a condition of publication and papers will not be passed to the publisher for production unless copyright has been licensed.
Note to NIH Grantees
Pursuant to NIH mandate, Wiley-Blackwell will post the accepted version of contributions authored by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central upon acceptance. This accepted version will be made publicly available 12 months after publication. For further information, see www.wiley.com/go/nihmandate.
Presentation of Manuscripts
The manuscript should be double-spaced with 30mm margins. Manuscripts must be numbered consecutively in the following sequence: Title Page; Abstract, if required; Main Body of Text; Acknowledgement; Reference List; Tables and Figure caption List.
1. Title page
The title page should contain the following information:
1. full title of the paper
2. the full names of all the authors
3. the name(s) and address(es) at which the work was carried out (the present addresses of the authors, if different from the above, should appear in a footnote)
4. the name, address, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address of the author to whom all correspondence and proofs should be sent
5. a running title of not more than 50 characters, including spaces; and six keywords for indexing.
A structured abstract of no more than 250 words is required for original or review articles, subdivided into the following sequential sections: Introduction; Aim; Methods; Results; Conclusion.
3. Main body of text
The text of original and review articles should be subdivided under the headings: Introduction; Materials and Methods; Results; Discussion and Conclusion. The Results and Discussion sections may be combined and may contain subheadings. The Materials and Methods section should be sufficiently detailed to enable the experiments to be reproduced. Trade names should be capitalized and the manufacturer's name and address given.
References in Articles
We recommend the use of a tool such as EndNote or Reference Manager for reference management and formatting. References must be numbered consecutively in the order in which they appear in the text and be identified by square brackets, e.g. [1, 5, 7-9]. Titles of journals should be abbreviated in line with Index Medicus. List all authors when seven or fewer; when more than seven give six, followed by et al. For style of References in the list, see a recent issue of Haemophilia.
Units and Spelling
Systéme International (SI) units should be used, as given in Units, Symbols and Abbreviations (4th edn, 1988), published by the Royal Society of Medicine Services Ltd, London. If special circumstances necessitate the use of other units these should be defined on first appearance in terms of SI units, e.g. mmHg. Spelling should conform to The Concise Oxford Dictionary (Oxford University Press).
6. Tables and figures
The preferred position of figures and tables in the text should be indicated in the left-hand margin.
Illustrations should be referred to in the text as figures using Arabic numbers, e.g. Fig. 1 etc., in order of appearance. Three copies of each figure must be submitted and each should be marked on the back with its number, together with the name(s) of the author(s) and the title of the paper. The top should be marked with an arrow. Photographs and photomicrographs should be unmounted glossy prints and should not be retouched. For electronic submission, illustrations should be embedded in the main document or uploaded in the recommended formats. Quality should be sufficient for on-screen viewing and desk-top printing. High quality versions will be accepted on acceptance.
Colour illustrations are acceptable when found necessary by the Editor(s), but the author may be asked to contribute towards the cost. Line drawings should be on separate sheets of white paper in black indelible ink or photographic prints thereof (dot matrix illustrations are not permitted). Each figure must have a separate legend; these should be grouped on a separate page at the end of the manuscript. All symbols and abbreviations must be clearly explained. Figures that have been created electronically should be saved using the 'normal' save process of the software program and also as a postscript or EPS file.
Tables should include only essential data. Each table should be typewritten on a separate sheet and must be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals, e.g. Table 1, and given a short caption. Vertical rules should not be used. Units should appear in parentheses in the column headings and not in the body of the table. All abbreviations should be defined in a footnote.
All tables and figures that are reproduced from a previously published source must be accompanied by a letter of permission from the publisher or copyright owner.
Types of articles
Original articles should be up to 2000 words and can have up to 40 references.
Review articles can be up to 3000 words with up to 60 references.
Letters to the Editor
These may include case reports, do not require abstracts, should be no more than 800 words and contain no more than 5 references. A right of reply will be extended to the original authors at the discretion of the Editors.

It is the policy of Haemophilia for authors to pay the full cost for the reproduction of their colour artwork.
Therefore, please note that if there is colour artwork in your manuscript when it is accepted for publication, Blackwell Publishing require you to complete and return a colour work agreement form before your paper can be published.
If you are unable to access the internet, or are unable to download the form, please contact the Production Editor (contact details given above) and they will be able to send a form to you.
Once completed, please return the form to the Production Editor.
Any article received by Blackwell Publishing with colour work will not be published until the form has been returned.
*To read PDF files, you must have Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you do not have this program, this is available as a free download from the following web address: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
Haemophilia is covered by Blackwell Publishing's Early View service, which means that, once we have received your corrections, your article will be published online without having to wait for inclusion in a print issue. Please note that the version of your paper that appears online is complete and final, except for volume, issue and page numbers, which are added upon print publication. Therefore, there will be no further opportunity to make changes to your article after online publication.
Authors' original materials
Unless specifically requested by a society or individual author, hardcopy and electronic materials will be retained for no longer than two months following publication of each issue. Any hardcopy and electronic material should then be disposed of or recycled. This includes original artwork, hardcopy text and any accompanying disks/CD-Roms. Any author wishing for any of their materials to be returned should alert the Production Editor via the Editorial Office at the submission stage, or at the latest to the Production Editor directly on receipt of proofs. No responsibility will be taken for author material being destroyed if there has been no indication given that it should be returned.
Page Proofs and Offprints
Page proofs must be returned to the Publisher within 3 days of receipt, by fax if convenient; only typographical errors can be corrected at this stage. Page proofs will be supplied as portable document format (PDF) files sent by e-mail, where possible.
