HOME FOR AUTHORS EDITORIAL BOARD ABOUT WJOMI


UWAGA! Prace można nadsyłać w języku polskim - zostaną nieodpłatnie przetłumaczone na język angielski!


Submission process:

We accept short manuscripts presenting medical cases, original articles, brief description of research, diagnostic or scientific methods (please see the full scope of the Journal in About WJOMI menu). We welcome all works with graphic material, including figures, photos and films. Comments or letters to the editor about previous manuscripts are also accepted. The content of the text is sole responsibility of the author(s).

In the manuscripts, please follow the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations, the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing, or similar international or local publishing standards. Regarding transparency please include a statement on Conflict of Interest, and also bioethical statements regarding Human and Animal Rights, and Informed Consent (if applicable).

The peer-review takes up to 2 weeks. Each Managing Editor for the given manuscript would finally decide for or against publication by analysing 2 peer reviews (please click here to see the peer review form). Any difficult decisions may be consulted with the Editor-in-Chief. The decision about acceptance/correction/rejection is sent by e-mail to the corresponding author. The decision of acceptance or rejection is based on scientific value, novelty of data, interesting and state-of-the art procedures or methodology, unique and/or interesting medical cases, excellent graphic depictions of medical conditions, novel therapeutic and managment approach. As WJOMI has no financial targets, we do not try to squeeze in as many articles as possible. Any corrections will be published immediately online in Editorials or specific Letters to the Editor. Retractions will be visible as there would be a formal information of article withdrawal online. Expression of editorial concern could be indicated directly in a link to the given article.

NB! World Journal of Medical Images, Videos and Cases is free of any advertising, purely educational and non-profit!

PLEASE NOTE! THERE ARE NO PUBLICATION CHARGES FOR THE AUTHORS WHATSOEVER! THERE ARE NO CHARGES FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS OR ACCESS TO ARTICLES FOR THE READERS, EITHER! THE JOURNAL IS FREE! We therefore use a new term for our journal, i.e. "FULL OPEN ACCESS".
