The following document provides a quick overview of the preferred forms of citation in Thieme journals:

If you are working with citation management software (Endnote, Zotero, Mendeley), please use the output style "Thieme-German". It is available in the relevant software or can be downloaded from our authors' lounge.

Figures

Unfortunately, we cannot accept images that have already been published in books, journals, or electronic products of other publishers. That is because it is almost impossible to obtain the necessary rights of use even when licensing fees are paid. Therefore, please do not pay any licensing fees (e.g. to "RightsLink" / Copyright Clearance Center). Standard license contracts from "Creative Commons" are unfortunately also insufficient for our purposes. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the use of images.

We cannot accept or store illustrations that include personal data of third parties. Please submit only images in a completely anonymous form, free of all personal data. This refers not only to data directly visible in the image (e.g., a patient name or a date of birth on an X-ray image) but also to information included in the metadata of the image that is accessible with the appropriate software. It includes data that may have been obscured by a cropping feature (such as in PowerPoint or Word) but can still be made visible. If you have questions about data protection regulations, please contact us before submitting your manuscript.

• Text and tables: MS Word (*.doc, *.docx)
