Peer Review Process
GMJ is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and endorses the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) Policy Statement on Geopolitical Intrusion on Editorial Decisions. GMJ also endorses the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals.
The articles are primarily evaluated by our statisticians and internal screeners who check the articles for any methodological flaws, format, and their compliance with the journal’s instructions. Then a submission code will be allocated, and all the future contacts should be based on this code. All received manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least two international reviewers and two of authors' suggested reviewers if he/she meets our minimum requirements and accepts our invitation.
The manuscripts will be assigned to one of our section editors; the general condition and abstract of the manuscript will first be evaluated by three of our editors related to the subject. The manuscript will be sent to the reviewers if it meets the selection criteria of our journal. All reviewers are asked to fill in the review form, write down their opinion and rate the manuscript. The editorial board will then make their verdict according to the reviewers' comments. The final review process will be discussed in regular editorial board sessions and on the basis of the comments, and the journal’s scope, the Editors will decide which articles should be published.
GMJ will inform the authors within a maximum of 6-8 weeks of submission of the first decision.
