Peer Review Guidline


Why Peer Review?

  • For authors: Quality of their publications and quality of the scientific record will be improved.

  • For Editors and journals: They can make a good decision for accepting or rejecting a paper.

  • For reviewers: Reviewers become a better reviewer! It can be a learning by doing process.


Our Mission

  • Our aim is to improve worldwide health results and share clinical information with case reports. We also want to support healthcare professionals for making the best possible care of patients. In addition clicase can be a reservoir of case reports and clinical hypothesis for teaching and proposing new approaches of medicine and also for conducting secondary researches.


Peer review process

  • After confirmation by editor in-chief, Associate editor suggests some reviewers and also one chief reviewer for a paper. Then technical editor send the paper for those reviewer.

  • If the reviewer thinks that he/she is unable to provide a review (due to conflict of interest or scheduling problems) she should say it to the technical editor as soon as possible.

  • Finally after completing the review process, technical editor sends the comments of reviewers to the authors.

  • In clicase final decision is made by associate editor and editor in-chief based on the results of the review process. The paper can be accepted, rejected, accepted with minor revision or accepted with major revision.

  • At the end , authors revise their articles and send them back to the technical editor and the review process restarts.
