Editorial Policy

Editorial Guidelines


Pakistan Journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research is a Pakistan-based international biomedical journal. We publish items of interest to practitioners and scientists in the area of medicine as a whole. For publication, articles reporting novel qualitative, quantitative, human/animal clinical, or laboratory investigations are considered. All articles should be understandable to the general reader and contribute to better clinical practise, medical education, research, and policy decisions. Case reports, case series, descriptive and analytical studies with clinical trials, brief reports, special communications, and letters to the editor are all examples of articles. Clinical conference abstracts, special issues, papers on innovation, research methodologies, and reporting are also published. Secondary research, such as narrative reviews, systematic reviews, evidence-based articles, meta-analyses, and practise recommendations, will be accepted for publication as well. Invited pieces are published on occasion. Manuscripts must be original and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.


The Pakistan Journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research has committed to accept and publish submissions in compliance with the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and the Committee on Publication Ethics guidelines (COPE). ICMJE and COPE information may be found at http://www.icmje.org/ and http://publicationethics.org/.

 

ICJME Authorship Statement

 

All people labelled as writers must meet the criteria for authorship, and those who do must be listed. Each author should have contributed enough to the work to accept public accountability for relevant sections of the text. One or more writers should accept responsibility for the overall integrity of the work, from conception to publication.

 

Authorship should be based solely on:

 

Significant contributions to idea and design, data collecting, data analysis and interpretation

drafting the paper or critically reviewing it for essential intellectual substance; and

Final approval of the published version. Conditions 1 through 3 must all be satisfied.

Acquisition of funds, data gathering, or general supervision of the study group do not, on their own, support authorship.

 

Authors should describe what they contributed, and editors should publish that information. All people who contributed to the work but are not writers should be acknowledged, and their contributions should be specified.

 

The authors must write a conflict of interest and funding statement at the time of submission.
