Focus and Scope

To ensure wider readership, Medphoenix, Journal of National Medical College (JNMC) encourages articles of general interest as well as scientific articles, based on topics relevant to our region. Our journal allows free access (Open Access) on its contents and permits authors to self-archive the final accepted version of the articles.

The journal is particularly interested and welcomes papers in basic and clinical medical sciences, medical education, public health, hospital and healthcare management.
Peer Review Process
All articles received are duly acknowledged. Once the manuscripts are received, they will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that they are being submitted only to MED PHOENIX and have not been submitted elsewhere simultaneously, published, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. First, the Editors will review all submitted manuscripts and then subsequently send them to expert peer reviewers blinded to author(s) identity and vice-versa.
Articles with insufficient originality, serious scientific and technical flaws, or lack of a significant message, plagiarised matter, and not following the guidelines appropriately are rejected or if good article are written poorly then author are requested to re-submit after the revision according to the journal’s format.
Editorial board is the final authority to accept or reject the article after reviewing article and following reviewer’s feedback. The corresponding author will be informed about the reviewers’ comments and acceptance/rejection of manuscript. The contributors should clarify the comments and resubmit the revised manuscript to the editor in stipulated time. Articles accepted would be copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author, which has to be returned within one week. Failure to respond within stipulated time may delay the publication of the article or may even get rejected.

When reporting studies on human, indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional or regional) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (available at http://www.wma.net/e/policy/17-c_e.html). Do not use patients’ names, initials, or hospital numbers, especially in illustrative material. When reporting experiments on animals, indicate whether the institutions or a national research council’s guide for, or any national law on the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.
Evidence for approval by a local Ethics Committee (for both human as well as animal studies) must be supplied by the authors on demand. Animal experimental procedures should be as humane as possible and the details of anesthetics and analgesics used should be clearly stated. The ethical standards of experiments must be in accordance with the guidelines provided by the CPCSEA (animal) and ICMR (human). The journal will not consider any paper which is ethically unacceptable.
