About the Journal

Journal Title:

Translation: The University of Toledo Journal of Medical Sciences

ISSN: 2469-6706

DOI: 10.46570/utjms.2469-6706

Focus and Scope

The journal will publish original articles of basic or clinical research, case reports, and reviews in all aspects of medical sciences. In most cases, a decision on acceptance will be made within 2 weeks of receipt. The manuscript will be evaluated based on the results presented in its original submission. There will be no publication charges. This will provide an opportunity for medical students, graduate students, residents, fellows and faculty to publish relatively modest but important observations in a timely manner.

Peer Review Process

One reviewer from UT and one outside the institution will typically review each manuscript.  The reviewers are asked to comment on novelty of the research, adequacy of design in answering the experimental question, appropriateness of the data collected and its analysis, and overall communication style.  Typical review time is expected to be 2 weeks.  Potential conflicts of interest will be identified and managed in recruitment of reviewers from UT with appropriate expertise for evaluation of the work.
