Peer Review Process

The peer-review process and editorial scrutiny are the main mechanisms for ensuring the quality of published articles. To this end, the submitted articles are rigorously peer-reviewed to ensure the high quality submissions are accepted and published; these published articles reflect the up-to-date research findings, with reliable and sound results, objective and unbiased discussion of the results. The journal’s editorial board is composed of research scientists and medical specialists with rich research and publication experiences.

The single most important criterion for acceptance is the originality of the work. However, a decision to accept a manuscript is not based solely on the scientific validity of its content. Other factors may affect decisions, such factors are, but not limited to, the extent and importance of new information in the paper compared with that in other papers being considered, the Journal's need to represent a wide range of topics, and the overall suitability for Journal Clinical Medicine Research. Decisions on peer-reviewed papers are sent to the authors within an average of 3 weeks from the date of submission.

1.    Manuscript submitted via the journal online submission system.

2.    Primary manuscript check by the editorial assistants against the Check list, to check if components of manuscript are complete and conforming to the submission requirements, and cross-check if there is duplicate submission, plagiarism. If manuscript does not meet the submission requirements, then the manuscript will be returned to the authors for corrections and resubmission.

3.    If the manuscript meets the submission requirements, the editorial assistant will assign this manuscript to an editor from the editorial board after matching the subject of the article and the editor’s expertise.

4.    If the editor finds the article lacks sufficient quality or the topic is not well within the journal scope, the editor will reject the submission without further consideration.

5.    If the manuscript is found with sufficient quality worth further consideration, the editor will assign this manuscript to 2-3 external reviewers for peer-reviewing.

6.    The peer-reviewers will send back the review comments with their recommendations as: accepted unchanged; minor revision; major revision; or rejected.

7.    Based on the reviewers’ comments and recommendations, editors will make editorial decision.

8.    The peer-review process is single blinded with the reviewers aware of whom the authors of the manuscript are, the authors do not know who the reviewers are.
