Scientific Note

The authors must justify in the cover letter the appropriateness of presenting their data as a Scientific Note. The length of such notes will be strictly restricted to 3 pages (i.e about 9,000 characters, spaces excluded, if only text and references) and publication will depend on the availability of space in the journal and general interest to readers of HNMJ.
