Authors interested in submitting to JCP should follow the ICMJE Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals. All articles submitted to JCP must be original; the journal does not accept manuscripts whose content has been previously published elsewhere, in print or online.
Manuscripts may be submitted online. Authors should fill out the requested information and then upload their manuscript and supporting files (Cover Letter, Author Disclosure forms, Copyright form) in the required formats. Alternatively, authors may email their submissions directly to the Editors via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To facilitate blind peer-review of manuscripts, please do not include author names, affiliations, or contact information in the submitted manuscript document. Please provide this information separately in the Cover Letter submitted with the manuscript. The manuscript as well as the Cover Letter should be submitted as Microsoft Word files.
Disclosures of funding sources and financial conflicts of interest must be provided for all authors at the time of manuscript submission. Each author must complete and sign an Author Disclosure form. As a matter of editorial policy, we will not publish manuscripts that have been written by, or whose development was funded by, a pharmaceutical company, public relations agency, or similar outside source without full disclosure.
Authors must submit a completed Copyright Release form shortly after submission.
Authors are responsible for obtaining permission and paying fees to reproduce any tables, figures, or other illustrations that were originally published elsewhere; written documentation of this permission should be submitted with the manuscript.
For photographs in which patients are identifiable, authors must include a signed Patient/Parent Consent form. Permission and Consent forms can be requested via email at: email@example.com.
