Focus and Scope

Annals of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (ACCLM) is an official Journal of Nepalese Association for Clinical Chemistry. ACCLM is a peer-reviewed, biannual journal. ACCLM includes original articles, review articles, short communications, letters to the editor, case studies, medical education and current issues.

The scope of ACCLM includes but is not restricted to clinical chemistry, molecular biology and genetics, immunology, therapeutic drug monitoring and toxicology, endocrinology and metabolism, laboratory management and quality assessment, medical education, laboratory medicine with the focus on analytical and clinical investigation of laboratory tests in humans used for diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and monitoring of disease.

Peer Review Process

Submitted papers will undergo full peer review, and written comments, when available, will be returned with all refereed manuscripts. Reports for provisionally accepted papers will include a review by a statistician which authors will be required to follow when revising their manuscript. The final decision on the acceptance or rejection of a manuscript will be made by the Editors.

Manuscripts are reviewed by two independent reviewers selected by the Editors. ACCLM aspires to notify authors about the decision within 3-4 weeks from submission date. When manuscripts are accepted subject to revision, the revised manuscript should be returned within approx. 6 weeks. Accepted articles are published online ahead of print approx. 3–4 weeks after acceptance.

Publication Frequency

The journal is scheduled to publish its issue two times a year; first issue in the month of March and another issue in the month of September.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
