The Editorial Processes
A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to International Journal of Pure Medical Research alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review.
Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the International Journal of Pure Medical Research readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.
General Guide Lines:-
A single file to be uploaded on the website should consist the following content/checklist before submission. Not fulfilling the check list may entitle to reject/return the submission.
A note on plagiarism (please read before submission): There is a zero-tolerance policy towards plagiarism (including self-plagiarism) in our journal. Manuscripts are screened for plagiarism before, during, and after publication, and if found they will be rejected at any stage of processing. In case that a paper is already published in our journal and appears in various directories but plagiarism is still detected, it will be retracted from our journal and the authors' institutions and department heads will be notified to take actions.
Manuscripts that are judged to be of insufficient quality or unlikely to be competitive enough for publication are rejected during initial screening. The remaining manuscripts go through a single-blind peer review process with two or more reviewers. In single-blind review, reviewers' identities are hidden from the authors but not vice versa. Possible decisions after review are: accept as is, minor revision, major revision, or reject. Authors should submit back their revisions within 1 month in the case of minor revision, or 3 months in the case of major revision. To submit a revision shall be communicated to the authors as and when required. Manuscripts with significant results are typically reviewed and published at the highest priority.
This journal uses single blind peer review - the reviewers identities are not known to the authors while the authors' details are shown to the reviewers.
