Editorial and Peer Review Processes generally follow these steps:
- 1. We follow and request from authors, reviewers and editors the "ICJME Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly work in Medical Journals".
- 2. When an article is submitted to International Medicine, the Editor makes the first check of submitted articles (structure, plagiarism, scientific quality).
- 3. Article may be rejected, sent back for structural revision, or sent to at least two reviewers for peer review.
- 4. After peer review process, articles may be rejected, sent back for revision requested by reviewers or accepted for publication.
- 5. Revised articles by authors may be accepted, resent to reviewers, resent to authors for additional corrections/revision or rejected.
- 6. Authors could not see reviewers’ information. The editor may make authors’ information available to reviewers or not.
- 7. Accepted articles are forwarded to publishing process.
- 8. The Editor(s) may require additional materials or changes from authors during copy editing, composing, grammatical editing and/or proof reading steps.
