The editors must be faculty members and well-known researchers in their field , and have an excellent record of publication in peer-reviewed journals and reviewing manuscripts. Please note that Editorial Board Members (EBM) does not have any advantage in publishing their own manuscripts on our journal. 

Our policy for EBM-authored articles is the same as other submissions, which is the fair blinded peer-review as transparent and rigorous as possible; so reviewer doesn't know the identity of the author, and vice-versa. To minimize any potential bias in the review process, we follow the advice of the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE) that clearly suggests “having another associate editor handle the peer review procedure independently of the editor”. In reviewing manuscripts submitted by one of our editors we deliberately exclude the editor in question from all aspects of the review process. 

We believe that our policy is fair to other authors competing for journal space and to our editors and their colleagues. As a publisher of medical research, we strive to be thorough and honest to maintain standards for the peer-review system of our journal and to protect it from any potential / systematic abuse by anyone, including our editorial board members.

Ethics of Publishing Case Reports: Do We Need Ethics Approval and Patient Consent?

An editorial by Dr. Mehrdad Jalalian

Read more.

The worldwide spread of COVID-19 as an emerging, rapidly evolving situation, and the dramatic need of urgent medicine or vaccine, has rapidly brought new hypotheses for pathophysiology and potential medicinal agents to the fore. It is crucial that the research community provide a way to publish this research in a timely manner.


To contribute to this important public health discussion, the Electronic Physician Journal is excited to announce a fast-track procedure to help researchers publish their articles on COVID-19 related subjects that fall under the broad definition of public health, internal medicine, and pharmacology. We are especially welcome to all hypotheses about the pathological basis of the COVID-19 infection and the possible characteristics of potential medicine and vaccine. Submit your manuscript here
