Publication ethics

Edizioni Minerva Medica has been publishing journals and books on medicine since 1909. Edizioni Minerva Medica’s objective is to contribute to the spread of scientific medical knowledge worldwide by supporting authors in the publication of their research, and to protect intellectual property and copyright. To this end, Edizioni Minerva Medica’s position is impartial and neutral without discrimination (whether religious, political, gender-based, sexually-oriented, ethnic or geographical) but at the same time objective and rigorous.
Edizioni Minerva Medica publishes some forty scientific journals which are indexed by the most important international bibliographic databases. Many of them are the official organs of important Italian and international medical societies. The peer-review process is fully documented and recorded at every stage and guarantees the accuracy and truthfulness of the scientific information published. The publisher guarantees ethical and quality standards will be complied with by the various actors involved in this process (authors, reviewers, editors, societies). Edizioni Minerva Medica complies rigorously with the rules of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICJME) and of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Our main expectations of editors, reviewers, and authors are summarised below.
