Ceklist Prepare for Publications

  1. Does your manuscript comply with minimum standards? (written in English; submitted paper length of at least 4 pages and no more than 16 pages; use of tools such as EndNote, Mendeley, or Zotero for reference and format management, and choose Vancouver style)
  2. Is your manuscript written in the format of a Health Scientific Journal (JPMIM)? At this stage, you must follow every detail of the format of the Health Scientific Journal (JPMIM). Try to follow the format as closely as possible.
  3. is your title adequate and is your abstract written correctly? The title of the paper is a maximum of 10 words, without Acronyms or abbreviations. The abstract (MAX 200 WORDS) should be informative and fully clear (no citations in the abstract), provide a clear statement of the problem, approach or proposed solution, and indicate the main findings and conclusions.
  4. Authors are advised to present their articles in the structure section: Introduction - Proposed Method/Algorithm/Procedure specially designed (optional) - Results – Discussion –
  5. The author must place the paper in the proper context by citing the relevant paper. At least 5 references (recent journal articles) are used in this section.
  6. Method part: the presentation of experimental methods should be clear and complete in every detail that facilitates reproducibility by other scientists.
  7. Results and discussion section: The presentation of results should be simple and straightforward in style. This section reports the most important findings, including the results of appropriate statistical analyses and comparisons with other research results. The results given in the figure do not have to be repeated in the table. This is where the author has to explain in words what he found in the study. It must be laid out clearly and in a logical order. This section should be supported by appropriate references.
  8. Conclusion section: Summarize the sentences of the main results of the study in a paragraph. Are the claims on this section supported by the results, does it make sense? Have the authors indicated how the results relate to expectations and previous research? Does the article support or contradict previous theories? Do its conclusions explain how research has moved the body of scientific knowledge forward?
  9. Please ensure that the manuscript is up to date. It is expected that 10 to 20% of references are for recent papers.
  10. Is the script clearly written? Was the article interesting? Does the content flow well from one section to another? Try to keep your manuscript at the right level. It should be easy for qualified professionals to understand, but at the same time please avoid describing already known facts (use proper references instead). Often manuscripts receive negative reviews because the reviewer cannot understand the manuscript and this is the author's (not the reviewer's) fault. Note, that if the reviewer is having difficulties, then other readers will face the same problem and there is no reason to publish the manuscript.
  11. Do you have enough references? We will typically expect a minimum of 10 to 25 references especially for journal papers, depending on the length of the paper. Citations from textbooks should be used very rarely and citations to web pages should be avoided. All cited papers should be referenced in the text of the manuscript.
