Editorial and Publishing Procedures

Peer Review Process

Our Editorial Team will review all submitted articles for compliance with the journal's goals, scope, and manuscript formatting. The editor will submit the manuscript to two eligible reviewers for review if it meets the criteria. Reviewers are chosen from a pool of experienced peers in various scientific fields or related academic fields. The editor's decision on whether to approve or reject a paper based on the comments of the referees is final. Invited Essays, Invited Commentary, Media Reviews, Short Communications, Conference Abstracts, and Editorial Papers will be published solely on the editor's discretion, with no peer review.

Final Decision: The journal editor or editorial board acknowledges the peer reviewers' input before making a decision.

Editors' Responsibilities

The editor of Frontiers in Medical Case Reports (FMCR) is responsible for determining which papers should be published in the journal. The editor may be directed by the editorial board's policy and bound by any applicable legal standards for libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism at the time. In making this decision, the editor can consult with other editors or reviewers. All information about manuscripts submitted by authors must be kept secret by the publisher and all editorial staff. They must only share information about a submitted manuscript with the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisors, and the publisher, as required. Without the author's express written permission, the editors could not use the unpublished materials for their own study.

Reviewers' Responsibilities

The peer-reviewing process helps the editor and editorial board make editorial decisions, and it can also help the author improve the article. Any referee who feels unqualified to review the research mentioned in a manuscript or recognises that a timely review is unlikely should inform the editor and withdraw from the review process. Any manuscripts sent to for review must be regarded as confidential documents. They must not be shared or discussed with someone else unless the editor has given permission. Reviews should be done critically. It is not permissible to criticize the author personally. Referees should express their opinions clearly and with evidence to back them up. Reviewers should look for situations where specific published work referenced in the paper is not cited in the reference section. They can specify whether or not conclusions or arguments taken from other publications are followed by a reference to the original source. Any significant resemblance or correlation between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper about which the reviewers have personal knowledge will be reported to the editor. Confidential knowledge or suggestions gained through peer review must be kept private and not used for personal gain. Reviewers do not include manuscripts in which they have competing, collaborative, or other partnerships or associations with any of the writers, businesses, or organizations involved in the articles.

Authorship of the Manuscript

The corresponding author guarantees that the author list includes all contributing co-authors. The corresponding author may also ensure that all co-authors have signed off on the final version of the paper and committed to its publication. All writers should provide a disclaimer outlining any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that could be interpreted as influencing their manuscript's findings or interpretation. All sources of funding for the project should be made public. When an author finds a substantial mistake or inaccuracy in his or her own published work, it is the author's responsibility to inform the journal editor or publisher as soon as possible and to comply with the editor in having the paper retracted or corrected in the form of an erratum.
