Instructions to Authors

International Journal of Recent Innovations in Medicine and Clinical Research (IJRIMCR) is an Open Access, Peer Reviewed, Abstracted and Indexed Journal Published Quarterly (January to March; April to June; July to September and October to December).

Types of Paper

Full-length papers

Full-length papers should: (a) be divided into sections (Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion); (b) contain an Abstract, not exceeding 200 words, at the beginning of the paper, followed by 3-6 keywords; (c) not exceed 12-14 printed pages (approximately 20 typewritten pages) including the space required for figures.

Short Communications

Not exceeding 1500 words or equivalent space including figures and tables. These must be brief definitive reports and not preliminary findings. Short communications need not be divided into Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, instead, Materials and Methods may be described in the text or, if appropriate, in figure legends or table footnotes.

Review Papers

Reviews will be published following invitation from Editors or by the suggestion of authors.

Special Issues

Special Issues on highlighted aspects of Medicine and Clinical Research are also published. Special Issues may contain selected contributions (invited lectures) from international conferences, or a collection of papers on a specific.

Policy Papers

The purpose of the policy paper is to provide a comprehensive and persuasive argument justifying the policy recommendations presented in the paper, and therefore to act as a decision-making tool and a call to action for the target audience. We advise a length of 3000-4000 words, plus 3-4 figures and/or tables, and 15-20 key references.

Commentaries

Short, focused, opinion articles on any subject within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually related to contemporary issues, such as recent research findings, and are often written by opinion leaders.

Methodology articles

Present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may be new, or may offer a better version of an existing method.

Case Reports

Reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an important adverse reaction. All case report articles should indicate that informed consent to publish the information was granted from the patients or their guardians.

Letters to the Editor

These can take three forms: a substantial re-analysis of a previously published article or a substantial response to such a re-analysis from the authors of the original publication, or an article that may not cover 'standard research' but that may be relevant to readers.

Submission of Manuscript

Manuscript should be written in English language. The text should be in Times New Roman font, size 12, 1.5 line spaced throughout the manuscript. It is recommended to submit the manuscript in all respect tables, figures and graphs in single word file at: [email protected] for quick evaluation process.

It is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out. If accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, including electronically without the written consent of the copyright-holder.
