Posted in June 25, 2019

1. Website

i. The URL address of official journal web site: https://www.jpmph.org/.

ii. ‘Aims & Scope’ statement: Journal of Preventive Medicine & Public Health (JPMPH) is a peer-reviewed journal published bimonthly by the Korean Society for Preventive Medicine. JPMPH aims to advance research, policy, education, and practice in the field of preventive medicine and public health by publishing papers of high scientific quality. It publishes articles in the disciplines of epidemiology, health policy, and environmental and occupational health. The journal encourages submission of papers on the determinants of health, health promotion, disease prevention, community health interventions, health services research, health systems, environmental risks, and workplace safety. The journal provides a forum for sharing timely and up-to-date knowledge in improving population health worldwide.

iii. Readership: It is primarily for researchers who seek tailored information about preventive medicine and public health, and medical statistics, but its readership can be expanded to other positions; Researchers have access to recent public health research topics and detailed research methods; Clinicians in the field have access to new information and recent preventive medicine and public health; Medical teachers are able to access and adopt a variety of medical education data; Allied health professionals, including nurses, have access to recent information concerning the care of subjects with preventive medicine and public health; Medical health students can learn about recent trends in the field and read about interesting topics; Policymakers are able to reflect on the article results and apply them in nationwide healthcare policies for subjects under public health. The scientists will be able to read the advancement in the evaluation study of undergraduates, graduates, and continuing education so that they have a confidence in the training courses of future health professionals.

iv. Authorship criteria: https://www.jpmph.org/authors/authors.php
According to the ICMJE guidelines, the authors of the paper must have met all of the following criteria: (1) Substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, and/or analysis and interpretation of data; (2) Drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; (3) Final approval of the version to be published; (4) Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved. Authors should meet these 4 conditions. All those designated as authors should meet all four criteria for authorship, and all who meet the four criteria should be identified as authors. Those who do not meet all four criteria should be acknowledged as contributors not be authors.
The addition of an author to a manuscript under review is possible only with the editor’s approval. Changes in authorship cannot be made after the manuscript is accepted for publication.
Corresponding author and first author: JPMPH does not allow multiple corresponding authors for one article. Only one author should correspond with the editorial office and readers for one article. JPMPH does accept notice of equal contribution for the first author when the study was clearly performed by co-first authors.

v. Duplicate submission and redundant publication: https://www.jpmph.org/authors/authors.php
Submitted manuscripts must not have been previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. No part of the accepted manuscript should be duplicated in any other scientific journal without the permission of the Editorial Board. Submitted manuscripts are screened for possible plagiarism or duplicate publication by CrossCheck (http://www.ithenticate.com/) upon arrival. If plagiarism or duplicate publication related to the papers of this journal is detected, the manuscripts may be rejected, the authors will be announced in the journal, and their institutions will be informed. There will also be penalties for the authors. A letter of permission is required for any and all material that has been published previously. It is the responsibility of the author to request permission from the publisher for any material that is being reproduced. This requirement applies to text, figures, and tables.

vi. pISSN: 1975-8375 eISSN: 2233-4521

2. Name of journal

The official journal title is Journal of Preventive Medicine and Public Health. Abbreviated title is J Prev Med Public Health.

3. Peer review process: https://www.jpmph.org/authors/authors.php#sec2

Double-blind peer review: Upon submission of a manuscript, the board of editors for the JPMPH will review the paper for appropriateness of content. Articles can be rejected at this initial review process. Articles that pass this preview are then reviewed by two or three experts in the field. The authors’ names and affiliations are removed during peer review. Double-blind peer review averages 2 months to complete. The board of editors reserves the right to edit a manuscript for phrasing, style, and overall length at any stage prior to publication, while maintaining the scientific accuracy of the manuscript. Based on comments from reviewers and editors, authors may be asked to revise their manuscript. Authors are required to submit a letter of explanation regarding how they dealt with all comments and questions raised by reviewers and editors. If revisions cannot be submitted within one month, author(s) may request a one-month grace period. If the revised manuscript is not submitted within the required period, the manuscript will automatically be rejected. Manuscripts will not be returned after submission.
