Publication Ethics 

 

Policy and Ethics: The author, in his/her cover letter, must declare that the work reported in the manuscript was performed according to the national and international institutional rules concerning animal experiments, clinical studies, and biodiversity rights. The importance of the study should also be provided in the cover letter. Authors should submit data that have arisen from animal and human studies conducted in an ethically-guided manner by following the guidelines set up by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Authors submitting papers are advised to read online WIPO and WHO guidelines on these subjects. (http://www.wipo.int/tk/en/consultations/draft_provisions/draft_provisions.html) http://www.who.int/medicines/library/trm/researchdocs.shtml). Authors should make sure that they have acquired appropriate "prior informed consent" (PIC) of patients or volunteers used in their clinical studies. This means that the onus is on the authors, and not on the journal, regarding this important ethical issue. Moreover, authors should state this as a part of the article before the references list (See author's guidelines). Papers that violate these ethical principles will neither be accepted nor considered for publication in the BPRMCS.

Author contributions: Each author should state his/her contribution to the article.

Declaration of conflict of interest: Authors must disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest, including any financial, personal, or other relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence their work.

Conflict of Interest disclosure is required for all manuscripts and will be published. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to ensure that all co-authors adhere to this policy.

Submission declaration and verification: Manuscript submission implies that the work has neither been published previously nor is under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication is approved by all authors, and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out; and that if accepted for publication in the BPRMCS, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or any other language, including electronically, without the written consent of the copyright holder.

The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that all authors have agreed to be listed and approved for the paper submission to the journal, and approved papers managing all communication between the journal and all co-authors, before and after publication. All manuscripts are checked for plagiarism using the iThenticate tool by BPRMCS. Authors should strictly avoid plagiarism, including self-plagiarism. Manuscripts with over 15% overlapping from the similarity report results exceeding 15% would not be considered for publication by the BPRMCS. Papers submitted to the BPRMCS must be original and not be published or submitted for publication elsewhere. 

The editorial board will thoroughly check submitted manuscripts to identify and prevent possible research misconduct regarding the publication of papers with BPRMCS. If research misconduct is identified, according to the Editor’s and reviewers’ feedback, the corresponding author is responsible for retracting or correcting articles.

Peer Review & Complaints Policy

Peer Review Policy: All content of  BPRMCS is subject to peer review. All articles published in  BPRMCS have undergone rigorous peer review (double-blind peer review), by members of the editorial board and the review panel. The  BPRMCS Editor first checks and evaluates the submitted manuscripts, examining their fit and quality regarding their significance, manuscript format, and research quality. If it is suitable for potential  BPRMCS publication, the editor directs the manuscript to two reviewers, both of them being experts in the field. After both reviewers' feedback, the editorial board decides if the manuscript will be rejected, accepted with revisions needed, or accepted for publication. A diagram that illustrates the review and publishing process can be seen below.

Reviewers are objective for all judgments in the peer-review process. Reviewers are assigned to have no conflict of interest. Reviewers might point out relevant published work which is not yet cited. Submitted manuscripts are treated confidentially before their publication.

Peer-reviewed feedback and results will be sent to the corresponding author for corrections (if necessary). Edits will be made available to corresponding authors before publishing. Edited/Revised papers should be returned to the publisher within three days.

The practice of peer review is to ensure that only good science is published. All manuscripts submitted to  BPRMCS are peer-reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

Initial manuscript evaluation: The Editors first evaluate all manuscripts. It is rare but possible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Manuscripts rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside of the aims and scope of the journal. Authors of manuscripts rejected at this stage will be informed within 2-3 weeks of receipt.

Type of peer review: This journal employs double-blind review, where the author and referee remain anonymous throughout the process.

How the referee is selected: Whenever possible, referees are matched to the paper according to their expertise. Our database is constantly being updated. We welcome suggestions for referees from the author though these recommendations are not necessarily used.

Referee reports: Referees are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

    • Is original
    • Makes a theoretical contribution to the study of Enterology or applied sciences
    • Is methodologically sound
    • Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
    • Has results that are presented and support the conclusions
    • Correctly cites previous relevant work

Language correction is not part of the peer review process, but referees may, if so wish, suggest corrections to the manuscript.

How long does the review process take? The time required for the review process is dependent on the response of the referees. However, the typical time for  BPRMCS is approximately 3 months. Should the referees' reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. In rare cases for which it is extremely difficult to find a second referee to review the manuscript, or when the one referee's report has thoroughly convinced the Editor, decisions at this stage to accept, reject, or ask the author for a revision are made based on only one referee's report. The Editor's decision will be sent to the author with recommendations made by the referees, which usually include verbatim comments by the referees. Revised manuscripts might be returned to the initial referees who may then request another revision of a manuscript.

A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the referees and may include verbatim comments by the referees.

The Editor's decision is final. Referees advise the Editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article.

Becoming a referee for  BPRMCS: If you are not currently a referee of  BPRMCS but would like to be considered as a referee, please contact the editorial office at editor@ BPRMCSetters.com. The benefits of refereeing for  BPRMCS include the opportunity to read, see, and evaluate the latest work in your research area at an early stage, and to contribute to the overall integrity of academic research and its published documentation.

Complaints Policy

We aim to respond to and resolve all complaints quickly and constructively. The procedures to investigate and resolve complaints followed by  BPRMCS aim to be fair and balanced for those making complaints and for those being complained about.

For Appeal against editorial decisions: If the authors disagree with the editorial decision on their manuscripts, they have a right to appeal.

Authors who wish to appeal an editorial decision should contact the Editor-in-Chief of  BPRMCS. In such cases, the Editor-in-Chief will review the manuscript, editorial, and peer reviewers' comments and give his/her decision for accepting or rejecting a manuscript. Editor-in-Chief may, if so required, send the manuscript to a new handling editor for a fresh editorial review and new referees for peer review. The decision of the Editor-in-Chief in such cases will be final.

Complaints related to policies, procedures, editorial content, and actions of the editorial staff:

The procedure to make a complaint is easy. The complaint can be made by writing an email. Ideally, the complaint should be made to the person with whom the complainant is in regular contact for the matter being complained about. If for any reason it is not appropriate or possible to complain to the contact person, please email [email protected] to send complaints.

All complaints will be acknowledged within three working days.

For all matters related to the policies, procedures, editorial content, and actions of the editorial staff, the decision of the Editor-in-Chief will be final. If the Editor-in-Chief is unavailable for any reason, the complaint will be referred to the Executive Editor of  BPRMCS.

Complaint Resolution: All efforts will be made to resolve the complaint as quickly as possible. In some cases, a delay in complaint resolution may occur if a response from any third person or organization is required. Until the complaint is resolved, a complaint resolution update will be provided to the complainant, every two weeks, until the complaint is finally resolved.

Conflicts of Interest Policy: Transparency and objectivity in research are essential for  BPRMCS. These principles are strictly followed in our peer review process and decision for publication. Manuscript submissions are assigned to reviewers to minimize potential conflicts of interest. The following relationships between reviewers and authors are considered conflicts and are avoided: Current colleagues, recent colleagues, recent co-authors, and doctoral students for which the editor served as their committee chair. After papers are assigned, individual reviewers are required to inform the editor-in-chief of any conflicts mentioned in the list above and any other conflicts that may exist.
