Online Submission
ELEFTHO uses the online system "Editorial System" for manuscript submission, peer review and editorial handling. Submissions received by e-mail will not be considered.
Within the submission system the corresponding author will have the ability to upload a cover letter and will also be able to select pre-identified statements related to the originality of the work, the potential conflicts of interest, authorship and the role of funding sources in manuscript preparation. Additional information may be requested by the Editorial Board so as to ensure the integrity and ethics of the manuscript.

Receipt of a manuscript is acknowledged via 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 be in contact with the editorial office, on behalf of all of the manuscripts authors.
