Editorial Policies

IJO editorial office responsibilities include:

·                     Managing the peer review process. This involves providing reviewers with all the information they need, to ensure authors receive comments that improve the manuscript.

·                     Compiling issues, making sure they are delivered on time.

·                     Editing and reformatting manuscripts to a high quality and conform to the journal style.

·                     Providing assistance with submissions and handling problems.

For publishing and ethical standards, we follow the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly work in Medical Journals (http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/) issued by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and the Cope of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (http://publicationethics.org/files/Code_of_conduct_for_journal_editors.pdf) issued by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
