Review Process

The submitted manuscripts will be assessed from editorial points of view, at first. Should the manuscript meet the basic editorial requirements; it will enter the peer-review process. The manuscript will then be sent to one in-office and two out of office referees for review. The corresponding author will then be informed to the referee's remark.


Papers may be returned to authors for modification of the scientific content and/or for short-ening and language corrections. Revised paper and a letter listing point-for-point response to the reviewers must be submitted to the Editor and must be accom-panied by a copy of the original version.
Suggestion by the Editor about resubmission does not imply that a revised version will necessary be accepted. If a paper that is returned to the authors for modification is not resubmitted within two months it will be regarded as having been withdrawn and any revised version received subsequently will be treated as a new paper and the date of receipt will be altered accordingly. Authors who resubmit a paper that has previously been rejected must provide the original manuscript and a letter explaining in detail how the paper has been modified. The right is reserved to incorporate any changes deemed necessary by the Editor to make contributions harmonize with the editorial standards of the journal. Accepted manuscripts become the property of Journal of family & Reproductive Health.


Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author to be checked for only typographical errors and other essential small changes. Major alternations to the text cannot be accepted at this stage. Proofs must be returned to the Editor within 3 days of receipt.
