Submit Article
MEDIMAA accepts articles submitted on the case that they have not been published anywhere else and are not currently under consideration by another journal published by Medimaa or any other publisher. The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that the articles publication has been approved by all the other coauthors.

MEDIMAA journals completely follow the double blind peer review process, which makes sure that no compromise and alteration is done with the quality of the articles. In peer review process, expert scholars in the relevant fields examine the scholarly work from every aspect, which includes its writing, word limits, the accuracy of its content, its documentation, and its impact on and significance to the discipline. On a minimum, two potential review comments are required by editors to judge about the publication of manuscript. After getting the required review comments, the manuscript-handling editor makes the final decision call in which various possibilities can be there like:

  • Accept, with or without editorial revisions
  • Invite the authors to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached
  • Reject, but indicate to the authors that further work might justify a resubmission
  • Reject outright, typically on grounds of specialist interest, lack of novelty, insufficient conceptual advance or major technical and/or interpretational problems

MEDIMAA journals accept original research articles, reviews, abstracts, addendums, announcements, article-commentaries, book reviews, rapid communications, letters to the editor, annual meeting abstracts, conference proceedings, case-reports, news, hypotheses and analyses.

Open access publishing model allows the wide range of readers to view, download, print and redistribute PDF version of any article without taking charges and provides worldwide and barrier-free access to the full text of all published articles. In an open access model, the publication cost of an article is paid by corresponding author, or by their supporting institution, in the form of "Article Processing Charges"€. Authors who publish in our open access journals retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a "Creative Commons Attribution License",€ enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited. The author need to pay the Article Processing fees only and after the article gets accepted for the publication, apart from the Article Processing Charges, there are no extra charges like submission charges, withdrawing charges, page charges or color charges.

The fees to be paid after the acceptance of an article are indicated in the table below:

Manuscript Type Article Processing Charges
Research Article, Review Article, Mini Review $500
Case Reports, Short Commentaries, Letter to Editors, Book Reviews and other formats $300

All submissions should be accompanied by a 500 words or less cover letter briefly stating the significance of the research, agreement of authors for publication, number of figures and tables, supporting manuscripts, and supplementary information.
The title should be limited to 25 words or less and should not contain abbreviations. The title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper.
Complete names and affiliation of all authors, including contact details of corresponding author (Telephone, Fax and E-mail address).
The abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The abstract should summarize the manuscript content in 200 words or less. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. The preferable format should accommodate a description of the study background, methods, results and conclusion. Following the abstract, a list of keywords (3-10) and abbreviations should be included.
The introduction should set the tone of the paper by providing a clear statement of the study, the relevant literature on the study subject and the proposed approach or solution. The introduction should be general enough to attract a reader’s attention from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
This section should provide a complete overview of the design of the study. Detailed descriptions of materials or participants, comparisons, interventions and types of analysis should be mentioned. However, only new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address.
The results section should provide complete details of the experiment that are required to support the conclusion of the study. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the author's experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results and discussion may be combined or in a separate section. Speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the results but should be put into the discussion section.
This section includes acknowledgment of people, grant details, funds, etc.

Only published or accepted manuscripts should be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: "... now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the manuscript are in the correct order for the relevant journal before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the manuscript.

Please use the following style for the reference list:

These should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text.

Figure Legends: These should be typed in numerical order.
