Submitting Your Manuscript
MJM accepts blinded manuscripts with the exception of the author’s name and affiliation. Manuscript submissions must follow the guidelines in the Uniform Requirement for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors. MJM will not consider manuscripts that are simultaneously being considered by other journals, or that are redundant or duplicate in nature. Please see MJM submission form includes the following required fields: for additional requirements. All submissions will be processed according to the steps outlined at this link: "Steps to Submit Manuscript"
MJM has no general rules regarding the formatting of articles upon initial submission. There are, however, rules governing the formatting of the final submission. See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details. Although bepress can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to produce an electronic version of the article as a high-quality PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) file, or a Microsoft Word, WordPerfect or RTF file that can be converted to a PDF file.
MJM follows a double blind review process. Prior to an article begin placed in review, an originality check is conducted using Turnitin software and may reject manuscripts that are not original work.
The Marshall Journal of Medicine aligns itself with the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). ICMJE Recommendations in the peer review process are found at http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/Peer Review
