Getting your manuscript prepared
Submissions should be done using the online submission system found at the journals's site or imedpub.com/ojs.
Alternatively, if you experience any problem uploading your manuscript via OJS, you could also submit it using next form:
When you altered your paper in light of the peer reviewers’ comments and you have written a covering letter to the editor explaining the changes you made or refuting the reviewers’ comments, you are ready to resubmit. This is done electronically via the iMedPub website. You will receive instructions on this with your decision email. Try to resubmit as soon as you can. Generally, this makes it easier to do as the paper is still fresh in your mind. The scientific world moves very quickly so you want your work published before someone else produces similar work. Once you have resubmitted you will see the status of the paper change. If you don’t see this or don’t get acknowledgment of your resubmission, check with the Editorial staff that they have received it.
Once the Editor has received your revised paper, they will decide if the changes are acceptable. Occasionally they will send it back to one of the reviewers to see if they are happy with the changes. Once the Editor is satisfied, you will be notified that the paper has been accepted and will be prepared for publication. Kindly read your manuscript before it is sent to layout. We always try to publish an error free papers in iMedPub Journals, so it is mandatory for Authors to proof read their papers meticulously, before they are copyedited.
iMedPub is an hybrid publisher; we publish both under subscription (free for authors) and open access (with charges) models. Once your manuscript has been accepted by the Editor-In-Chief you will be contacted from our editorial office for enquiring the model you choose for your paper. You will also get instructions to pay the charges.
Depending on production schedules you will receive a typeset galley proof of your paper within a few days of acceptance. It is EXTREMELY important that you check these carefully as this will be your last chance to correct any errors prior to publication. Please note the word ‘errors’ in the last sentence, the proof stage is NOT a time to alter data, conclusions, or add an author. These late, significant modifications will not be accepted. Check the paper carefully; look for errors of layout, spelling, references, and figures. Please remember that once you are happy with it, this is the form it will remain in for posterity. Correcting typo errors after publication is technically possible but an extremely laborious task and authors will be charged with a minimum of 60€ per round of corrections. See here a brief guidelines explaining how to notify to the iMedPub office corrections on proofs for articles.
Only when iMedPub have received your approved proofs will they be paginated and published on the website of the appropriate journal.
