Aims and Scope

Journal of Current and Advance Medical Research (J Curr Adv Med Res) is a leading, open access, peer-reviewed scientific journal on medical science for publication of articles. The journal provides quick initial decisions followed by a high quality medical editing service and an excellent publishing service to its authors. Papers are published open access without a page charge. This journal has been launched from January 2014 and is still continuing. J Curr Adv Med Res is published 2 times per year. Articles include original research papers, reviews, case report and short research communications. Submissions of basic and clinical research are both considered. Articles involving human/animal specimen, patients/volunteers, patient images, or case reports: Studies on these subjects require ETHICAL APPROVAL from Institutional Review Board/Local Ethical Committee and PATIENTS CONSENT. If the patient has died, then consent for publication must be sought from the next of kin of the patient. Both ETHICAL APPROVAL and PATIENTS CONSENT statements should be documented in the article, if appropriate.

Focus and Scose of Journal

This journal aims to publish scientifically written, evidence-based articles from all disciplines of medical sciences and clinical practice, and nursing, preventive medicine, epidemiology and healthcare research. This is a multidisciplinary medical journal. Manuscripts should present novel findings addressing significant questions in clinical medicine research and practice, in the form of original article, editorial, review, short communication, case report, letter to the editor, and others. In addition to that J Curr Adv Med Res publishes studies performed by multi-center groups in the various disciplines of medicine, including clinical trials and cohort studies from large patient populations, specifically phase I, phase II, and phase III studies performed under the auspices of groups such as general clinical research centers, cooperative oncology groups, and the like. Reports of patients with common presentations or diseases, especially studies that delineate the natural history and therapy of important conditions are also published. Reviews oriented to the practicing internist and diagnostic puzzles, complete with images from a variety of specialties are also published. Careful physiological or pharmacological studies that explain normal function or the body's response to disease as well as analytic reviews such as meta-analyses and decision analyses using a formal structure to summarize an important field are acceptable to publish.

Objectives of the Journal:

1. To publish original, well documented, peer reviewed clinical and basic science articles.

2. To inculcate the habit of medical writing.

3. To enable physicians to remain informed in multiple areas of medicine, including developments in fields other than their own.

4. To share the experience and knowledge for benefit of healthcare providers.

5. To document medical problems pertinent to community as diabetes, leishmaniasis, heat stroke, smoking, obesity, prevention of road side accident.

6. To achieve the highest level of ethical medical journalism and to produce a publication that is timely, credible, and enjoyable to read


Peer Review Process

Journal of Current and Advance Medical Research is a peer reviewed, multidisciplinary, open access, international, scientific medical journal with a rigorous editorial screening and assessment process made up of several stages. The editors make decisions on submissions based on scientific rigor, regardless of novelty.

1. Initial Checks after submission of manuscript by Author: A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to Journal of Current and Advance Medical Research alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. All submitted manuscripts received by the Editorial Office will be checked by a professional in-house Academic Editor to determine whether they are properly prepared, declared the competing interests and whether they follow the ethical policies of the journal, compliance with editorial policies and ethical standards including those for human and animal experimentation. Manuscripts that do not fit the journal's ethics policy or do not meet the standards of the journal will be rejected before peer-review. Manuscripts that are not properly prepared will be returned to the authors for revision and resubmission. The handling Academic Editor is usually a member of the Editorial Board. After these checks, the Academic Editor will consult the journals’ Editor-in-Chief, Managing Editor or Associate Editor to determine whether the manuscript fits the scope of the journal and whether it is scientifically sound. No judgment on the potential impact of the work will be made at this stage. Reject decisions at this stage will be verified by the Editor-in-Chief.

2. Double Blind Peer-Review Process: Once a manuscript passes the initial checks, it will be assigned to at least two independent experts for peer-review. The handling editor selects reviewers based on expertise, publication history, and past reviews, and invites them to provide feedback on the manuscript. After agreeing to review, external peer reviewers typically have 10 days to submit their review. The journal office will follow up with late reviewers and inform the corresponding author if there is any delay. A double-blind review is applied, where authors' identities are unknown to reviewers and the authors do not know the reviewers as well. Peer review comments are confidential and will only be disclosed with the express agreement of the reviewers. Reviewers should not have published with any of the co-authors during the past two years and should not currently work or collaborate with any of the institutions of the co-authors of the submitted manuscript. The reviewers should not be affiliated with the same institutes as the contributor/s. However, the selection of these reviewers is at the sole discretion of the editors

3. Final Editorial Decision and Revision of Manuscript: All the articles, reviews and communications published in Journal of Current and Advance Medical Research go through the peer-review process and receive at least two reviews. The handling Academic Editor or Staff editor makes the final decision on each manuscript. The time to render a first decision averages about 43 days, but times vary depending on how long it takes for the editor to receive and assess reviews. The editor will communicate the decision to the authors, which will be one of the following:

  • Accept after Minor Revisions: The paper is in principle accepted after revision based on the reviewer’s comments. Authors are given five days for minor revisions.
  • Reconsider after Major Revisions: The acceptance of the manuscript would depend on the revisions. The author needs to provide a point by point response if some of the reviewer’s comments cannot be revised. Usually, only one round of major revisions is allowed. Authors will be asked to resubmit the revised paper within a suitable time frame, and the revised version will be returned to the reviewer for further comments.
  • Reject and Encourage Resubmission: If additional experiments are needed to support the conclusions, the manuscript will be rejected and the authors will be encouraged to re-submit the paper once further experiments have been conducted.
  • Reject: The article has serious flaws, and/or makes no original significant contribution. No offer of resubmission to the journal is provided.

All reviewer comments should be responded to in a point-by-point fashion. Where the authors disagree with a reviewer, they must provide a clear response. Decisions are communicated to the corresponding author in a formal letter, along with reviewer feedback and any other requirements from the journal office. If the editor feels that the submitted manuscript has the potential to be published, but requires changes, the authors will be invited to revise it and will give 45 days to resubmit the revised manuscript for both a major or a minor revision.

4. Production and Publication of Article: Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. The whole process of submission of the manuscript to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online. Finally the articles will be published on the Journal of Current and Advance Medical Research (https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/jcamr) website.

Article Withdrawal Policy

Submission of an article to J Curr Adv Med Res implies that the work has NOT been published or has not been submitted elsewhere, therefore, the journal is strongly against unethical withdrawal of an article from the publication process after submission. Once the article is submitted, the author grants the editorial board full publishing rights and it is the absolute right of the editorial board to decide on article withdrawals. For genuine withdrawal, the corresponding author should submit a request which must be signed by all co-authors explaining the reason of withdrawing the manuscript. The request will be processed by the editorial board and only serious genuine reasons will be considered if possible. The decision of the editorial board will be final and not negotiable. Unethical withdrawal or no response from the authors to editorial board communication will be subjected to sanction a ban of 4 years to all authors, and their institute will also be notified.
