Shipping Policy

The submission of your work to the Omedics website implies that the materials included will be freely available to Omedics, without violating the confidentiality of the participants.

At Omedics we follow the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) standards:

Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results, which could damage confidence in the journal, the professionalism of scientific authorship and, ultimately, the entire scientific endeavor. Maintaining the integrity of the research and its presentation is aided by adherence to standards of good scientific practice, which include*:

The manuscript should not be submitted to more than one journal for simultaneous consideration.

The work submitted must be original and must not have been published elsewhere in any form or language (in part or in whole), unless the new work is an extension of the previous work. (Please be transparent in the reuse of material to avoid concerns about recycling of texts (“self-plagiarism”).

The same study should not be divided into several parts to increase the number of submissions and submitted to several journals or to the same journal over time (i.e., “salami-slicing/publication”).

Simultaneous or secondary publication is sometimes justified, provided certain conditions are met. Examples: translations or a manuscript intended for a different readership.

Results should be presented clearly and honestly, and without fabrication, falsification or improper manipulation of data (including image-based manipulation). Authors must respect the specific rules of their discipline for the acquisition, selection and processing of data.

No data, texts or theories of others shall be presented as if they were the author’s own (“plagiarism”). Due acknowledgments must be given to other works (this includes material copied verbatim (almost verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks (to indicate words taken from another source) are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are obtained for copyrighted material.

Ethical approval

When reporting a study involving human subjects, their data or biological material, it is assumed that the study by the authors was approved (or granted a waiver) by the appropriate institutional and/or national research ethics committee (including the name of the ethics committee) and that the study was conducted in accordance with the ethical standards set forth in the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki and its subsequent amendments or comparable ethical standards.

*Before submitting the paper, authors should be aware that the submission of the paper may not lead to the desired publication due to the possible lack of papers on the topic in question or variability among the different studies, even on the same topic.
