Scope of journal

MJSBH is all-specialty medical journal and accepts articles from a wide range of medical specialties including medical education, medical sociology and clinical specialties.

Peer Review Process

The manuscripts will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that they are being submitted to one journal at a time and have not been published, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. On an average, 25-30% of the manuscripts are rejected by the editors before a formal peer-review starts.

MJSBH follows double blinded peer review. Average time period from submission of article to final decision is one to two months.

Please ensure that the entire text of the manuscript except the title page is blinded and doesn't contain any information that identifies the author/s or their affiliated institutions.

The Editors review all submitted manuscripts initially. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific and technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are rejected or if a good article is written poorly then authors are requested to re-submit after the revision according to MJSBH format. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged.

Manuscripts are sent to two expert reviewers without revealing the identity of the contributors to the reviewers. Each manuscript is meticulously reviewed by the MJSBH editor based on the comments from the reviewers and takes a final decision on the manuscript. The contributors will be informed about the reviewers' comments and acceptance/rejection of manuscript.

Articles accepted will be copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author, which has to be returned within three days. Non response to proof copy may delay the publication of the same article or may even get rejected from the journal.

Publication Frequency

MJSBH is published biannually.
