The editors reserve the right to determine the suitability of submissions. For additional information, please contact the editors.
The UC Journal of Medicine does not have article processing charges or article submission charges.
All peer review processes will strive to be transparently described and well managed. The journal will provide training for editors and reviewers and have policies on diverse aspects of peer review, especially with respect to adoption of appropriate models of review and processes for handling conflicts of interest, appeals and disputes that may arise in peer review. Recruitment of new peer reviewers will be drawn from the recommendation of editors and previous authors, followed by verification of qualifications, publication history research / academic / clinical focus at their institutions. Given that the current journal submissions are enlisted from University of California Irvine (UCI), each submitted manuscript will have at least two peer reviewers not associated with UCI.
Plagiarism will be managed using Grammarly.
Once published, a journal article cannot generally be revised or removed. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. Please be aware, however, that even after the removal of a work, a citation to the work will remain in our system, along with a URL.
If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact the editors.
Once manuscripts are published, we are generally unable to revise them. If a significant error or omission is discovered, contact the editors.
