Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding the acceptance or rejection of articles.
Cover letters are required for all submissions. They must include a statement of originality and confirmation that the paper has not been submitted to any other journals or conferences. Confirmation and any relevant details of permissions and any information regarding the funding of research should be clearly stated in the cover letter when submitting a paper to the TMI.

All illustrations, whether diagrams or photographs, are referred to as Figures. Upon submission of an article, authors are supposed to include all figures and tables in the PDF file of the manuscript. Figures and tables should not be submitted in separate files. If the article is accepted, authors will be asked to provide the source files of the figures. Each figure should be supplied in a separate electronic file. All figures should be cited in the paper in a consecutive order and figure caption should be cited under the figure. Figures should be supplied in either vector art formats (Illustrator, EPS, WMF, FreeHand, CorelDraw, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) or bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 300 dpi resolution at least, unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons. If a bitmap image has labels, the image and labels should be embedded in separate layers. Use the abbreviation (e.g., “Fig. 1.”) even at the beginning of a sentence. Do not abbreviate “Table. 1.”
(Fig. 1. Example of Fig)
