Editorial Policies

Magazine Home

  • If manuscript or substantial parts of it by any other journal, which is submitted to the journal must not be under consideration..
  • Submission of a manuscript to PharmaTutor implies that all authors have read and agreed to its content, and that any experimental research that is reported in the manuscript has been performed with the approval of an appropriate ethics committee. Manuscripts may be rejected if the editorial office considers that the research has not been carried out within an ethical framework, e.g. if the severity of the experimental procedure is not justified by the value of the knowledge gained.
  • Authors publishing results from in vivo experiments involving animals or humans should state whether due permission for conduction of these experiments was obtained, from the relevant ethics committees, in the Materials and Methods section. In addition, authors wishing to publish research work involving human studies should also send a notary verified letter of approval from the Ethics Committee or the Institutional Review Board .
  • The PharmaTutor is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices. All authors submitting their works to the PharmaTutor magazine for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their authors' contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works. The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it. In the same manner, the PharmaTutor Magazine is committed to objective and fair double-blind peer-review of the submitted for publication works and to prevent any actual or potential conflict of interests between the editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any departures from the above-defined rules should be reported directly to the Editors, who is unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such a type of problems.
  • Scientific development requires the exchange and discussion of data and ideas. PharmaTutor Magazine  is a unique publication dedicated to presenting the results of scientific and technical research from Science and Pharmacy discipline in an open-access background. The peer review of each article concentrates on objective and technical concerns to determine whether the research has been sufficiently well conceived, well executed, and well described to justify inclusion in the scientific evidence. Then, after publication, all papers are opened up for interactive discussions and evaluation in which the whole scientific and research community can be involved. Unlike many journals or magaines which attempt to use the peer review process to determine whether or not an article reaches the level of 'importance' required by a given magazine, PharmaTutor uses peer review to determine whether a paper is technically sound and worthy of inclusion in the published scientific record. Once the work is published in PharmaTutor, the broader community is then able to discuss and estimate the significance of the articles.
  • PharmaTutor staff does not copyedit the text of accepted manuscripts; it is therefore important for the work, as presented, to be intelligible. Perfect, stylish English is not essential but the language must be clear and unambiguous. If the language of a paper is poor, PharmaTutor reviewer should recommend that authors seek independent editorial help before submission of a revision. Poor presentation and language is a justifiable reason for rejection.
  • Please note the authors when submitting an article, all authors are asked to indicate that they have not submitted a related manuscript for publication elsewhere. If similar or related work has been submitted elsewhere, then a copy must be included with the article submitted. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the overlap between related submissions.
  • Before submitting your manuscript, please collect information on the sources of funding that have supported the work. When you submit, you will be required to provide a statement in the online submission system or in manuscript text declaring the funding sources, and also stating the role of the study sponsor(s), if any, in study design; collection, analysis, and interpretation of data; writing of the paper; and decision to submit it for publication. Please also include the following statement, if pertinent: "The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript." If this statement is not correct you must amend it as needed.
