Author Guidelines

DEVELOPMENTAL MEDICO-LIFE-SCIENCES is a monthly journal that publishes scholarly material (original paper, reviews, case reports, short communication, letter to editors, and editorial) based on the author's opinion and does not reflect official policy. All rights reserved. Reproduction or transmission without permission is strictly prohibited. All material submitted for publication should be sent exclusively to the Developmental Medico-Life Sciences. Work that has already been reported in a published paper or is described in a paper sent or accepted elsewhere for publication should not be submitted. However, a complete report is following publication of the preliminary report, usually in the form of an abstract, or a paper that has been presented at a scientific meeting. If not published in full in a proceedings or similar publication, may be submitted. Press reports of meetings will not be considered as breach of this rule, but such reports should not be amplified by additional data or copies of tables and illustrations. In case of doubt, a copy of the published material should be included with a manuscript to help the editors decide how to deal with the matter.

Peer-Reviewing Process:

The double-blind peer review process utilized by Developmental Medico-Life Sciences is a cornerstone of its commitment to academic integrity and rigorous scholarly standards. In this system, both the authors and the reviewers are kept anonymous, eliminating biases related to the identity, affiliation, or reputation of either party. When a manuscript is submitted, the journal's editorial team ensures that any identifying information is removed before the paper is sent to expert reviewers in the relevant field. These reviewers evaluate the manuscript based on its originality, methodological rigor, clarity of presentation, and contribution to the field, unaware of the authors' identities. Similarly, the authors do not know who reviews their work, allowing them to receive and respond to feedback without prejudice. This process helps maintain a focus on the quality and significance of the research, promoting a fair and constructive review experience that is essential for advancing knowledge in developmental medico-life sciences.
