Peer review process

All articles submitted for publication in the Journal of the EWMA are reviewed before publication by two individual peers. Authors may suggest the names of two reviewers for the manuscript. However, final selection of the referees will be determined by the Editor. The review process will take approximately 8 weeks.

When the review is complete, you will receive an email regarding the suitability of your article for publication in the journal and any suggestions for amendments. A final copy of the article, including any changes recommended by the editor and/or the reviewers, should then be submitted online.

The Editor requires that with each submission, the authors provide written assurance that the paper has not been previously published and that no other submission or publication will be made. Copyrights of all papers is vested in EWMA.

Abstracts for oral or poster presentations are not considered prior publication.
