Peer Review Process

 

Universa Medicina publishes peer-reviewed articles and is committed to ensuring ethics in publication and the quality of articles. Integrity in research publication has become a major issue of debate over the past years. To assure the highest standards for published articles, all parties involved in the publishing process (authors, editors, and reviewers) agree to meet the  responsibility of standard publications ethics.

 

The editors will decide upon the publication or rejection of submitted manuscripts based only on their originality, significance and relevance to the domains of the journal, and will respect the confidentiality of any information pertaining to the submitted manuscripts. The editors will take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper. The editors will ensure that the comments and recommendations of the reviewers are sent to the author(s) in due time and that the manuscripts are returned to the editors, who will take the final decision to publish them or not.

 

Authors should ensure that their work is entirely original and that data sources are appropriately acknowledged. Authors should warrant that the submitted article or a modified version thereof has not been previously published or is under review in another journal, and that they have obtained an agreement from any co-author(s) prior to the manuscript’s submission. Plagiarism in all its forms, including self-plagiarism, is unacceptable. Authors should make certain that the manuscript meets the terms of the Manuscript Submission Guideline.

 

The reviewers will treat any submitted manuscripts as confidential documents. Reviews should be conducted objectively and any observations should be supported by clear arguments, for use by the authors in improving their manuscript. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the manuscript or cannot provide a prompt review, should in due time send a notice of withdrawal from the review process to the editors. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest connected to the papers.
