Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science (OAJBS) has a legal responsibility to ensure that its journals do not publish material that interfere with copyright or includes slanderous content. Manuscripts containing material that invades copyright or is potentially unfounded data will be rejected. Corresponding Author is responsible for all author for the compilation for copyright assignment. For readers it is free to read, share, download these articles for intellectual/research purposes as it is an open access journal. However, they will not copy blindly and copyrighted material in their work/manuscript/paper/lecture/seminar. Any reference from these manuscripts should be properly approved, or prior permission should be taken from the copyright holder. The publisher or any other party does not hold the copyright for the manuscripts.
In Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science (OAJBS) we ask that authors enter their funding status during the manuscript/article submission. We can use that information to determine whether it may be a CC BY NC license is mandated. Any subsequent reuse or distribution of content licensed under CC BY NC must maintain attribution for an author(s) and the published article's title, journal citation, and DOI.

Peer Review Process refers to a system, which is used to access Manuscript quality before it is published online. All the independent researchers/experts/professionals in the relevant field are subjected to assess the submitted manuscripts for validity, originality, and significance to help editors determine whether a manuscript should be published in their journal. Peer Review Process can also help to establish a method by which it can be evaluated and enhance networking possibilities within research communities and helps to validate the research works. Nevertheless, to say, Peer Review has widely accepted method for research validation. More information is available at Peer Review
Article Processing Charge
Publication of articles in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science (OAJBS) involves article processing charges/Fees will be paid by research funding institutions or the by the authors themselves from their own pocket. This processing fees includes manuscript peer-reviewing, formatting of an article, editing an article, publishing, archiving, DOI and other maintenance costs will be associated with the production and publication of the article charges/Fees. Under some circumstances Article Processing charge can be waived off up to 50% for the author (If author is from low income or developing nation). The author should pay the publication fees/charges by PayPal/ Credit Card Authorization form. More information is available at Processing Fee
Authors are allowed to post preprints of the Original Version, Accepted Manuscript, and Version of Record on preprint servers, authors' or institutional websites, and open forums for discussion between researchers on preprint commenting websites or community preprint servers. When submitting their work, authors who choose to make it available as a preprint should specify the preprint server and include the DOI or accession number. Once accepted, the manuscript will be made freely available online as soon as it is published. Authors must update all preprint server records with a journal reference (with DOI) and a link to the article's online version once it has been published.
A cover letter is welcomed to be submitted accompanying each manuscript. We suggest authors include the following contents in a cover letter.
Using Human Subjects
In the Declarations section of their publications, authors should include an Ethical Approval statement to confirm that any study involving human participants or samples has ethical approval and complies with the Declaration of Helsinki. The study had to be carried out in accordance with the approved protocol and legitimate research standards.
Acceptance of Participation
Participants should provide written informed consent before to participating in any study that uses human subjects. The written consent can be made accessible upon request, and authors should certify in writing that they have received and stored it.
Acceptance of Publication
The participants' permission to have their names published must be obtained by the authors of publications that raise privacy concerns, such as those that display personal information in photos or videos. The written consent can be made accessible upon request, and authors should certify in writing that they have received and stored it.
Any research using animals should follow the established methodology and appropriate research standards for animal experimentation, and it should be approved by an animal care and use committee. The ethical approval of the study by a specific animal care and use committee should be stated in an ethical statement provided by the authors at the conclusion of their articles.
Conflicts of Interest
In Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science (OAJBS) if manuscript has been submitted it must include a ‘conflict of interest’ section at the end of the manuscript. If funding is not available from the author's institution, this should be specified upon submission only. If authors working on any sponsored clinical trials or publications, should declare such works under conflict of Interest during submission.
Authorship states that an author must contribute considerably to a work’s: concept or design; data collection, analysis or explanation; academic content development or critical review; final version approval; and integrity, ensuring that issues related to the precision or completeness of any part of the work are properly investigated and resolved. Our assessment approves the authorship criteria defined by ICMJE. Individuals who meet the following criteria can be classified as authors. More information is available at Editorial Policies
The articles submitted by authors must contain a minimum of 80% unique content (Which should be unique and must not copy from any other web sites). The authors must maintain 100% uniqueness in the Results and conclusion part of the text. We will resend the articles, which have below 80% uniqueness to the authors for revision and asked for resubmissions with uniqueness (as per guidelines).
Our OAJBS publish only unpublished articles only, our journal does not allow to articles which are published in any other platform. If the article has published in other language author must mention in the cover letter. If authors using their past works, they have to provide a proper citation to it and they have to clearly state how the article is different from their past work. If author want to reuse the past work figures or considerable amounts of content, he/she must have to get a authorization from the original author and the authors are responsible for getting this. Our journal will consider the following omissions if acceptable and made transparent upon submission.
Our journal follows the synopsis of misconduct provided by WAME. Misrepresentation of data: Includes fabrication, misleading selective reporting of conclusions, exclusion of contrary evidence, and purposeful suppression and/or modification of data. More information is available at Editorial Policies.
Authors has to provide the proper literature details of where he/she inspired, or the previous works related to the current topic or research. Authors must cite appropriate literature to support any statement that relies on external sources of information in their articles.
Mistakes are a component of science and publishing, and ICMJE Recommendations state that when they are discovered, they must be corrected and published. It is our duty to fix typographical mistakes in previously published publications. More information is available at Editorial Policies.
Rarely, articles that have already been published may be withdrawn. According to OAJBS, the purpose of retractions is not to punish writers but rather to update the literature and inform readers of any papers that may have significant flaws or incorrect data, leading to questionable conclusions. Please take note that while articles will be retracted, they will not be removed from the public domain. There will be case-by-case discussion of each retraction. More information is available at Editorial Policies
Waiver and Withdraw
Waiver is applicable only upon the request of authors and priority will be given to authors who are from low-income countries as per the World Bank classification. It will be seen in publication charges/fees link.
Withdrawal Request If the author requests to withdrawal of manuscript in any stages of publication process like after review comments submission or after published in online; then authors should make a withdrawal penalty. However, they need to pay a minimal amount as withdrawal charge it will consider as a withdrawal penalty. After reading these points the author requested to fill all the details clearly in withdrawal request form which was provided in our website.Click here

After carefully reviewing the editorial process and decision-making, editors should let appeals to override earlier choices (for example, additional factual input by the authors, revisions, extra material in the manuscript, or appeals about conflicts of interest and concerns about biased peer review). During the peer-review process, editors should act as a mediator in all conversations between authors and peer reviewers. Editors may request feedback from additional peer reviewers before making a final choice. Following an appeal, the editor's decision is final. The author's complaint alone shouldn't sway judgement. The editor in charge of the journal will deal with complaints about the editorial procedure or publication ethics if they are submitted to the editorial office of the journal.
