3. Aim & Scope

Journal of Health and Medical Research strives to publish highest quality articles pertaining to clinical research, which are freely accessible to one and all. The scope of the journal encompasses topics including disease prevalence, risk factors, public health intervention outcomes as well as healthcare economics and medical research topics including etiology of disease, prognosis, management and treatment, functional aspects of human physiology, mechanisms of health improvement and reduction in the burden of disease etc.

In order to create highly impactful and original content, the Journal of Health and Medical Research has gathered an expert Editorial Board, comprising of illustrious scientists who ensure that each manuscript is fairly, but stringently peer-reviewed. The decision on all submitted manuscripts will be taken independent of nationality, academic degree and relationship of the author with the journal. Papers will be published approximately 7 days after acceptance.

4. Types of Manuscripts

4.1. Research

Research papers are based on novel researches. A research paper is a primary source of knowledge which includes the methods and results of a new study done by the authors. The kind of study may differ (it could have been an experiment, survey, interview, etc.), but in all cases, raw data have been achieved and analyzed by the authors, and conclusions drawn from the results of that analysis. Research articles follow a particular format.

7. Medical Ethics

7.1. Informed consent

In general, informed consent assumes that authors are legally able to make their own decisions. For informed consent to take place, the information that’s given must be understood. The informed consent process is meant to give patients ongoing explanations that will help them make informed decisions about whether to start or stay in a clinical trial. The most important part of this process is their everyday interaction and discussions with the research team and other medical staff before, during, and after the trial. The consent form can be a great tool to help get this conversation started. This is all done so that patients can make the best decision for him/her, and to be sure that they are able to choose freely whether to enroll in or stay in the study. Much of this information may be on the consent form itself, which also regularly describes that they can withdraw from the study at any time without penalty. Before, during, and even after the clinical trial, patients will have the chance to ask questions and voice their concerns. Informed consent for clinical trials goes on for as long as the research lasts, and even afterward. Also Lexispublisher and Journal of Health and Medical Research confirmed and followed WMA Declaration of Helsinki - Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects.

7.2. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval

The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act is the basic food and drug law of the U.S. With many revisions, it is the most extensive law of its kind in the world. The law is planned to assure the user that foods are pure and healthy, safe to eat, and produced under healthy conditions; that drugs and devices are safe and effective for their proposed uses; that cosmetics are safe and made from suitable ingredients; and that all labeling and packaging is truthful, informative, and not deceptive. The authors should only use FDA approved products for medical studies on humans.

7.3. Animals in Medical Researches

Authors should take approval from relevant national or international bodies for experiments involving animal models. A copy of the approval letter must be submitted along with the manuscript or it should be clearly mentioned in the original manuscript.

8. Authors’ contribution

A statement of contribution make available validation for the order of authorship and it also assigns proper credit for academic contributions to the reported results. This is especially important where large research teams or multiple divisions within a company are involved in collaborative research.
