All authors are asked to read and agree to the standards outlined in the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors document, entitled Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals (found here: http://www.icmje.org/icmje-recommendations.pdf). It is our expectation that our authors, in their research and writing, act in accordance with these standards.

No Acceptance rate information available.

Each paper, after passing our mandatory plagiarism check, is sent to the Editor, who invites reviewers from our carefully selected International Program Committee (IPC). These reviewers are selected based on their expertise. When the paper has received 3 reviews, the Editor then takes a final look at the feedback of all reviewers before deciding whether to publish the paper, request revisions, or reject the paper.

Papers requiring revisions are given a short time to make the requested changes and resubmit, at which point the Editor will decide whether or not the changes are sufficient to warrant publication. If the changes are insufficient, the paper will be rejected. Any paper which does not pass our plagiarism check will not be put forward for peer-review.
