The editor reviewer shall send it anonymously to two reviewers, and at least send you your assessment and possible modifications. The editor will perform a final review of synthesis.

Ethical Guidelines and Malpractice Statement

Our ethic statements are based on Cope’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.
  • All studies on patients or volunteers and animal studies must have been approved by the authors’ Institutional Review Board. The relevant Eth­ics committee/institution review boards of the respec­tive institutions must approve the study. These should be documented in the paper.
  • Informed consent must be obtained for all participants, Case Reports, Clinical Pictures, and Adverse Drug Reactions. Authors should send a statement signed by Corresponding Author confirming that authors have obtained consent from the patient. It must be available if requested by the editorial staff.
  • Please include written consent of any cited individual(s) noted in acknowledgments.

An editor at any time evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Manuscripts submitted must not have been published as copyrighted material elsewhere. Manuscripts under review by the Journal should not be submitted for consideration by other publication as copyrighted material. By submitting a manuscript, the author(s) agree that the copyright will be transferred to Journal if the manuscript and associated multimedia are accepted for publication. The author(s) retain the rights to the fair use (e.g., teaching and nonprofit uses) of the published material.
