Publication information and editorial policies
CLINICS is an electronic journal that publishes peer-reviewed articles in continuous flow, of interest to clinicians and researchers in the medical sciences. Registered with PubMed Central (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/journals/795/) and SciELO (http://www.scielo.br/clinics), CLINICS complies with the policies of funding agencies which request or require deposition of the published articles that they fund into publicly available databases. CLINICS supports the position of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) on trial registration. Please Visit http://www.icmje.org/ for further details and http://www.who.int/ictrp/network/en/ for the WHO's list of approved registries.
Gold Open Access Journal: Articles become freely accessible as soon as they are published.
Plagiarism and Duplication: All articles are checked through Similarity Check/iThenticate (http://www.ithenticate.com) to ensure originality.
Please make sure to submit your manuscript in the exact format that is described below. Failure to do so will cause the submission to be returned to you during the preliminary examination by the Editorial Office.
CLINICS uses a business model whereby expenses are partly recovered by charging the authors, or research sponsors, a publication fee for each published article. Original Articles and Review Articles: US$ 1,700.00 (International authors) and R$ 3.000,00 (Brazilian authors). There are no charges for Invited Reviews, Editorials and Comments.
Waiver Policy: Most institutions and funding agencies have set up funding sources to cover Article Publication Costs. Unfortunately CLINICS cannot grant fee waivers.
ORIGINAL ARTICLES: Complete original studies should be submitted in this category. Original studies must conform to the following format:
REVIEW ARTICLES: Review articles should cover themes that are relevant to medical practice. Spontaneously submitted reviews are welcome; however, potential authors should bear in mind that they are expected to have expertise in the reviewed field. The sections should be arranged as follows:
Abstract: Abstracts are limited to 250 words and should not be divided into sections. Please make sure to always include your Abstract in the main document file.
EDITORIALS: Editorials should cover broad aspects of medical or biological sciences. Such manuscripts are not submitted to peer review and are published at the discretion of the editor. No publication fee is charged for this class of manuscripts.
COMMENTS: Comments on a paper or relevant issues are welcome and will be published at the discretion of the editor. No publication fee is charged for this class of manuscripts.
A copyright transfer form, signed by all authors, must be uploaded as a complementary file as soon as the manuscript is submitted. Click here to download the Copyright Transfer Form.
