Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

In Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science (OAJBS) Publication Ethics for all manuscripts that include figures or videos relating to individual participants must be relevant. We will follow COPE (Committee of Publication Ethics) guidelines to ensure the journal quality and maintain high standards for our OAJBS publications.

All the authors who submit their manuscripts will be reporting from a clinical trial to register the trials registries.

Board members have to involve continuous progress about our journal and update them with new ideas for citation development. Our Board members are independent experts responsible for deciding whether or not a manuscript should be published in our journal. Board members have to keep their vision that the topic matter of the manuscripts reflects any changes of direction in the field of study to include futuristic work, this may require inviting manuscripts or special issues. If any misdemeanors/abuse of the rules or records, the board will interrupt the clarity of the published or the unpublished manuscript until the issue is convincingly work out. Due to high number of submissions and the quality of the journal being broad it might be not possible for one board member to make informed choices about submissions in all subject areas.
