"By 'open access' to this literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited."

SUBMISSION POLICY

International Journal of Biological & Medical Research (IJBMR) , developed submission policies by adopting policies for overlapping publications from IJBMR. Submission of the manuscript in EA publication implies.

  • 1. that the work described has not been published previously with singed copyright form attached (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis)
  • 2. that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere
  • 3. that it will not be submitted to other publication until under consideration by this publication
  • 4. that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out.

However, we accept submissions that have previously appeared on preprint servers (preprint website should have a clear policy for subsequent publication); have previously been presented at conferences (With 30% additional work) and not published in the journal. Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference and a link to the published articles on the appropriate journal website upon publication. Various acceptable and non-acceptable submissions are described below- No other mode will be accepted.

SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSION

Authors should not submit the same manuscript, in the same or different languages, simultaneously to more than one journal. Before submitting the manuscript, author(s) should make sure the complete withdrawal from the previous publisher. Such behavior wastes precious editorial resources as two or more journals will unknowingly and unnecessarily undertake the work of peer review, edit the same manuscript, and possibly publish the same article which will later undergo removal procedure. Making simultaneous submission will be considered as author misconduct which may result in blocking author for a certain period from all Biomedscidirect publications as well as informing the author’s institution.

REVIEW POLICY

International Journal of Biological & Medical Research uses double-blind review, in which the identity of both the reviewer and the author are unknown to each other. This ensures impartiality and helps every paper get an unbiased review.

DUPLICATE/REDUNDANT PUBLICATION

Duplicate or redundant (overlapping) publication is the publication of a paper that overlaps substantially with one already published, without clear, visible reference to the previous publication. Readers should be able to identify that what they are reading is original unless there is a clear statement that the author and editor are intentionally republishing an article.

When authors submit a manuscript reporting work that has already been reported in large part in a published article or is contained in or closely related to another paper that has been submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere, the cover letter should be clearly mentioned it and the authors should provide copies of the related material to help the editor decide how to handle the submission.

Authors who attempt duplicate publication without such information will be considered as a violator of our submission terms and such submission will be considered as plagiarized. Any such attempt of duplicate submission or submitting already published work (own or others) will be considered as serious author misconduct. The author(s) should expect serious action for such misconduct which may include informing their institution as well as various forums, making a public post and blocking the author for certain period from all Biomedscidirect publications.

If the editor was not aware of the violations and the article has already been published, then the article might warrant retraction (along with above action) with or without the author's explanation or approval.
