Peer Review Process

The submitted manuscripts are scanned by the Editor for their originality and importance to the journal readers. Those not responding to these conditions or those who are subject to plagiarism are automatically rejected. 
The accepted for review are sent to Associated Editors who assign them to at least three referees. 
Once the reviews are achieved, Editorial comments are sent to the author who is expected to reply by performing the adequate corrections.
The final decision to accept or to reject the manuscript depends on the answers  provided by the authors to reviewer comments and the established corrections in the revised manuscript.

The journal follows the practice of single blind review keeping reviewer identities anonymous to the authors.  

Direct submissions are accepted from all researchers. Authors do not need to have any connection with the editorial members to publish in Mediterranean Journal of Biosciences. The Editors are due to treat all authors with fairness, objectivity, honesty and transparency.

Submissions that do not conform to the general criteria for publication will be returned to the authors without detailed review, typically within 1 to 3 days. Otherwise, manuscripts will go through the revision process and a first decision will be sent to the authors within 4 weeks, on average.

The possible decisions on a manuscript are:

  • Accept submission
  • Revisions required
  • Resubmit for review
  • Decline submission

If minor revision is required, authors should return a revised version within 15 days. If other experiments are necessary, authors may ask for a derogation.

Once accepted, the revised papers can be made immediately available online. If the review process takes more time due to special circumstance, authors will be informed by email. 

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

Widrawal Policy

Some authors may present a withdrawal request signed by all the authors of the manuscript within 2 days after submission. A request made after the reviewers comments have been sent to the authors, implies a waste of the tremendous effort made in the processing of the paper and will cost a penalty of 75% of the article publication charges levied on the authors.

The journal publishes in a first time only the abstract with assigned pages number, the withdrawal if requested as indicated above, may occur within 2 days. In this case the authors will have to pay the totality of the publication charges.

Furthermore, the author may purchase the open access of the manuscript in order to be displayed as full text in our journal.

Once you have submitted your manuscript to Mediterranean Journal of Chemistry, you are invited to not subsequently post the paper on other journals. However, if your manuscript receives a final reject decision from the journal or if you withdraw in due time, this restriction is no more valid.

Once you have submitted your manuscript to Mediterranean Journal of Biosciences, you are invited to not subsequently post the paper other journals. However, if your manuscript receives a final reject decision at Mediterranean Journal of Biosciences or if you withdraw it from review, this restriction is no more valid.

 

Revised manuscripts deadline

Once the reviewer’s comments have been sent, the authors have 2 weeks to return the revised manuscript. If further experiments are needed, the authors may ask for a derogation. During this period the authors are committed to the journal and not allowed to address their manuscripts to other journals for review neither to use the received comments to submit elsewhere.

If no compelling and unavoidable reasons for the delay are presented or if the above policy is not respected the editor will be in the obligation of involving our juridical service.

 

Publication fee and payment Policy

 

After submission; a free of charge procedure; your manuscript will be evaluated by experts in your field. Your manuscript may be accepted directly for publication or some revisions may be required before publication. In these two cases, a publication fee of $70  per article must be paid which covers a portion of the costs for the journal maintenance and the acquisition of open access to your article. 

In the first step, you will receive the publication fee to pay; then, editorial comments, in order to make the request corrections. The full text of your work will be displayed only once you pay the due fee. You will receive a printable receipt by email and you may pay directly through your bank or by other payment Modes (Western Union, MoneyGram, Paypal...).

If your article submission receives a negative decision (decline manuscript), no fees are required.
