How to make a submission

"Psychosomatics and general practice" is a scientific periodical, which accepts for publication original research (randomized controlled clinical trials, observational studies, case-control studies, etc.), systematic reviews, descriptions of clinical cases and research letters.

Articles can be submitted upon registration online through editorial manager.

More detailed guidelines about submission process can be found here (in Ukrainian).

Copyright

Copyright after the publication of the material remain with the authors. The authors are solely responsible for the accuracy of published data.

Licensing conditions

All publications are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Licence, that allows free sharing, copying and adaptation of the material for any purpose, even commercially, but with providing appropriate reference to the source, indicating the authors, title of the article and the journal in which the article was published (including volume number, issue and electronic identification number of the article). By submitting an article authors must agree to these terms.

Peer review

All research articles, reviews and clinical cases which the journal recieves undergo a peer review. This process is provided by the external (in regard to the journal editorial team and editorial board) reviewers, specialists in the article's research field. Reviewers after evaluation recommend to the assigned editor (from the journal staff or editorial board) whether the manuscript should be accepted, revised or rejected.

The peer review process is double blind. Both the reviewer and the author are anonymous for each other. But we are planning to publish a list of our reviewers every year. The list for 2016-2017 will be available online at the end of 2017. 

Publication and submission fees

We do not collect any submision or publication fees. All articles are published without any payment. Although this can be changed in the future.

Plagiarism policy

We discourage any form of plagiarism, including self-plagiarism. All submitted manucripts are subjected for plagiarism detection. For this purpose editorial staff uses search engines for article text (string matches) and similarities in bibliography with other articles.

Possible reasons for article rejection

The article has no scientific quality, was previously published in this or others journals, didn't pass plagiarism check or was not appropriatly formated according to guidelines for authors
