4. Editorial Policies

The structure of our journal editorial office mirrors that of many other academic journals including a managing editor, editorial associates, software specialist and administrative coordinators. The tasks performed in the editorial office include, but are not limited to:

  • Management of the peer review process – ensure manuscripts progress smoothly through peer review; reviewers have all the information they need; authors receive a review that improves the quality of their manuscript
  • Issue compilation – assembling issues on time
  • Editing – copyediting and proof-reading manuscripts; reformatting manuscripts to conform to journal style
  • Queries – handling problems; assisting with submissions; answering general questions about the journal such as requests for information on time from submission to acceptance.

The roles and responsibilities of editorial offices are evolving rapidly, in response to the trend of online-based workflows. Editorial office staff constantly analyzes data such as citation levels, usage, and author submission behavior to determine content that would enhance readership by a variety of different criteria. The editorial office should balance commercial aspirations with editorial direction and policies.

5. 1 Informed Consent

Identifying information, including names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, or pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent is required for Case report, original/research articles and visualized surgery. The statement should be included in the footnote.

It may be possible to publish without explicit consent if the report is important to public health (or is in some other way important); consent would be unusually burdensome to obtain; and a reasonable individual would be unlikely to object to publication (all three conditions must be met).

5.2 Human and Animal Rights

When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the ethical standards, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.

5.3 The individuals responsible for the scientific quality of your publications

The reviewers, Editorial Board Members, Deputy Editor-in-Chief and Editor-in-Chief of each journal are responsible for the quality of the publications. It is stated in the “review process” section of the author instruction, see an example of “Quantitative Imaging in Medicine and Surgery” here: http://qims.amegroups.com/public/addition/qims/qims-instruction-for-authors.pdf.
