The authors are responsible for the scientific content of the material to be published. The Journal reserves the right to request any research materials on which the paper is based.

Printed copies of the journal are distributed during scientific and practical activities (live events), presented in all leading scientific institutions and medical libraries in Ukraine. All articles are also available in PDF, HTML format on the journal website (URL), websites of  National Library of Ukraine (URL), Ukrainian Scientific Citation Index (URL) and are made freely available immediately upon publication. Health of Woman is published in Ukrainian, Russian and English 10 times a year.

The Editorial Board of the Health of Woman and the Publisher adheres to the principles of the International Council of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE, http://icmje.org/)

 

Mission

Health of Woman mission is to distribute original medical data of the highest value for a diverse audience of those that participate in pediatric care: practicing and general pediatricians, academic general and subspecialty physicians and clinicians, researchers, educators, pharmacists, social workers, nutritionists and others. Supporting and continuously deepening knowledge and practical skills of pediatric healthcare professionals, the journal contribute to improving the quality of care and the health of infants, children, and adolescents.

Health of Woman believes that high quality and ethical publication will lead to the progressive development of medical sciences and healthcare in Ukraine.

 

Open Access Policy

Women's Health Magazine provides open access to its content immediately upon publication, based on the following principle: Open access to research results ensures the free dissemination of scientific information, facilitating broad knowledge sharing. Articles may be read, copied, printed, and distributed provided that their use is not for commercial purposes and the authors and publisher have the appropriate rights. All articles in this journal have the status of Free Open Access and do not affect the financial interests of both funding bodies and academic institutions.

 

Conflict of interest policy

All participants in the peer-review and publication process (authors, referees, editors, members of editorial board)  must disclose to the editor-in-chief any conflict of interest related to personal, family, financial, political or religious issues as well as any competing  interest while fulfilling their roles in the process of article review and publication and must disclose all relationships that could be viewed as potential conflicts of interest. If editorial staff, referees have a conflict of interest and/or believes that it is not appropriate to be a referee, or an editor for a given manuscript, the referee or the editor should resign from the assignment.

The Editorial Board members of the journal, who treat submissions and recommend their opinions to the Editor-in-chief may also submit their own manuscripts to the journal because  all of them are leading researchers and scientists. However, they cannot participate at any stage on the editorial decision of their manuscripts in order to minimize any possible bias. They will be treated like any other author, and if any, final acceptance of such manuscripts can only be made by the positive recommendation of at least two external reviewers, who are not the members of decision-making Editorial Boar.

When authors submit a manuscript of any type or format they are responsible for disclosing all financial and personal relationships that might bias or be seen to bias their work. Authors must declare any such conflict in the cover letter accompanying the manuscript and in the acknowledgments section of the manuscript itself. The corresponding author or all authors should be asked to sign the manuscript on the last page regarding potential conflicts of interest at the time of acceptance. Where authors have no conflict of interests, the statement should read “The author(s) declare(s) that they have no conflict of interests”. This policy applies to all submitted research manuscripts and review material.

All necessary information regarding the process of a manuscript can be obtained from the editorial office. However, the names of the handling editor and the reviewers are not given to the author(s). Due to the Health of Woman double-blinded review principles, the names of authors and reviewers are not known to the each other.

 

Plagiarism policy

The journal Health of Woman strives for the highest standards of research and publication ethics, and does not allow any form of plagiarism. All submitted manuscripts are screened with plagiarism software at least two times during the evaluation process to detect instances of overlapping and similar text

The Journal defines plagiarism as a case in which a manuscript reproduces another work having with 10% and more similarity scores and without attribution. If evidence of plagiarism is found before/after acceptance or after publication of the article, the author will be offered a chance for rebuttal. If the arguments are not found to be satisfactory, the manuscript will be retracted and the author sanctioned from publishing articles for a period to be determined by the responsible Editor(s).

In any case while an ethical misconduct is suspected, the editorial of the journal will act in accordance with the relevant international rules of publication and research ethics (COPE guidelines, ICMJE Recommendations, CSE White Paper on Publication Ethics, WAME resources, WMA policies and ORI).

 

Acknowledgement of authorship

All persons designated as authors should qualify for authorship. Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content. Authorship credit should be based only on substantial contributions to

– conception and design, or analysis and interpretation of data;

– drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content;

– final approval of the version to be published. Conditions 1, 2, and 3 must all be met.

Participation solely in the acquisition of funding or the collection of data does not justify authorship. General supervision of the research group is not sufficient for authorship. Any part of an article critical to its main conclusions must be the responsibility of at least one author. Editors may ask authors to describe what each contributed; this information may be published.

All members of the group who are named as authors, either in the authorship position below the title or in a footnote, should fully meet the above criteria for authorship. Group members who do not meet these criteria should be listed, with their permission, in the Acknowledgments or in an appendix. The order of authorship should be a joint decision of the coauthors. Authors may wish to explain the order of authorship in a footnote.

Increasingly, multicenter trials are attributed to a corporate or corresponding author. The corresponding author ensures that all contributing co-authors and no uninvolved persons are included in the author list. The corresponding author will also verify that all co-authors have approved the final version of the article and have agreed to its submission for publication

The authors are responsible for the content of the article and for the fact of its publication. The editorial staff reserves the right to shorten and edit the articles submission.

 

Publishing licenses, archiving and self-archiving policy

The policy of the Journal “Health of Woman” are compatible with the vast majority of funders' open access and self-archiving policies. The journal does not require authors of original (primary) research papers to assign the copyright of their published contributions. Authors grant the journal an exclusive licence to publish the papers, under a creative commons attribution-noncommercial 4.0 international license (СС BY-NC), which allows others to freely distribute the published research with the obligatory reference to the authors and the first publication of the original work in this journal. Copyright of the manuscripts is retained by the authors, after publication authors retain rights to reuse their papers in their future printed work without first requiring permission from the publisher of the journal and share their own published articles.

The journal supports the self-archiving process. Prior to publication in the journal, authors may post a copy of their manuscript in preparation or submitted to the journal in recognized non-commercial preprint servers, public websites.  Authors also are encouraged to archive their final author version of the manuscript in their institution's repositories and, if they wish, on their personal websites. Authors should cite the publication reference and DOI number on the first page of any deposited version, and provide a link from it to the URL of the published article on the journal's website.

To facilitate self-archiving of original research papers and help authors fulfil funder and institutional mandates, the journal deposits manuscripts in National Library of Ukraine by V.I. Vernadsky, Scientific periodicals of Ukraine database and different international scintificd database on behalf of authors who opt-in to this free service during submission. The journal provides depositing of articles on official website of the publisher. The full text access to published papers is free.

 

Editorial process

All manuscripts submitted for publication are strictly reviewed for their originality, methodology, importance, quality, ethical nature and suitability for the journal. Health of Woman uses a common standard scheme for the evaluation process. The editor-in-chief has full authority over the editorial and scientific content of the journal and the timing of publication of the content.

The whole editorial process consists of the successive steps.  Immediately after submission, technical review is carried out by editorial staff (editor-in-chief, associate editors or editorial board member) to assess suitability of the manuscript to the journal: topicality and importance of the subject, the clarity of presentation, and relevance to the audience of the journal in question. Submissions that fully do not conform to the requirements of the publication will be rejected. In cases where only minor revisions are recommended, the author is usually requested to revise the paper. Authors whose articles are accepted will be notified accordingly and the article will undergo further processing.  Technical reviews are typically processed in a few days after submission.

Any submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents. Editor(s) and editorial staff are obliged not to disclose any information about a submitted paper to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate. The journal operates a rigorous peer-review process. Review is performed on a double-blind basis – the identities of peer reviewers and authors are kept confidential. They must not be disclosed to or discussed with others except as authorized by the Editor-In-Chief.

At least two review reports are collected for each submitted article. Suggestions of reviewers can be made by the Editor-In-Chief during technical reviews. Alternatively, editorial staff can use qualified Editorial Board Members, qualified reviewers from the journal database, or new reviewers identified by web searches for related articles.

To assist academic editors, editorial staff of the journal handle all communication with reviewers, authors, and the external editors. Reviewers are given three – four weeks to write their review. For the review of a revised manuscript, reviewers are asked to provide their report within one week. In both cases, extensions can be granted on request.

The peer review is followed by a final acceptance/rejection decision by the Editor-in-Chief, or another academic editor approved by the Editor-in-Chief. When making an editorial decision the Editor-in-Chief or academic editor checks the suitability of selected reviewers, adequacy of reviewer comments and author response, overall scientific quality of the paper. The editor can select the follows: accept, reject, ask author for revision of the paper, ask for an additional reviewer. If there is any suspicion that a paper may contain plagiarism, the editorial office will check using plagiarism detection software to screen the manuscript. Peer reviewers complete a referee report form to provide general comments to the editor and specific comments to the author. Editors-in-Chief are free to disagree with their views. If they do so, they should justify their decision, for the benefit of the authors.

The publication process after submission may take 4 to 6 months.

However, all accepted manuscripts are assigned with a DOI number following their acceptance. The journal carries out production on all manuscripts, including language editing, copy editing and conversion to PDF or XML.

The journal “Health of Woman” is a member of International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and follows its procedures for dealing with potentially unethical behaviour by authors, reviewers or editors.

BIOETHICS, INFORMED CONSENT POLICY AND CONFIDENTIALITY

For all research studies the journal's policy requires an approval of research protocols by an appropriate ethics committee in accordance with international agreements “WMA Declaration of Helsinki – Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects (last updated: October 2013, Fortaleza, Brazil)” , «Guide for the care and use of laboratory animals (8th edition, 2011)» and/or “International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research Involving Animals (2012)”.

When reporting research involving human data, authors should indicate whether the procedures were conducted in accordance with bioethical standards and assessed by the local ethics committee or national bioethics commission. The same applies to researcher involving laboratory animals. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should indicate whether all necessary procedures were carried out in accordance with national and international standards for the care and use of laboratory animals.

If the submitted manuscript does not include ethics committee approval, it will be reviewed according to COPE's guideline (Guidance for Editors: Research, Audit and Service Evaluations). If the study should have ethical approval, authors will be asked to provide ethical approval in order to proceed the review process. If they cannot provide ethical approval, their manuscript will be rejected.

If the study does not need ethics committee approval after the editorial board’s review, the authors will be asked to provide an ethics committee approval or a document given by a related independent committee that indicates the study does not need ethics committee approval according to the research integrity rules in their country. If the authors provide either an approval or a document showing that ethics approval is not needed, the review process can be continued. If the authors cannot provide either documents, the manuscript may be rejected.

Approval by a local ethics committee does not preclude editors from forming their own judgment whether the conduct of the research was appropriate.

For articles concerning experimental research on humans, a statement should be included that shows informed consent of patients and volunteers was obtained following a detailed explanation of the procedures that they may undergo. The journal may request a copy of the Ethics Committee Approval received from the relevant authority. Informed consent must also be obtained for case reports.

Patients have a right to privacy that should not be violated without informed consent. Identifying information, including names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, or pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that an identifiable patient be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should disclose to these patients whether any potential identifiable material might be available via the Internet as well as in print after publication.

Patient consent should be written and archived with the authors at the institution where research was conducted. The authors provide the journal with a written statement that attests that they have received and archived written patient consent. The requirement for informed consent should be included in the journal's instructions for authors. When informed consent has been obtained it should be indicated in the published article.

The manuscript must include in the section «Materials and methods» a statement identifying the institutional local ethics committee approving the experiments, including any relevant details For experiments involving human subjects, authors must identify the local ethics committee approving the experiments, and include with their submission a statement confirming that informed consent was obtained from all subjects. 

REVIEW PROCESS, INSTRUCTIONS FOR REVIEWERS

Criteria for publication

Journal receives many more submissions than it can publish in each edition. It is therefore important that manuscripts are critically evaluated for compliance with the following criteria:

  • Strong evidence for the conclusions that are drawn
  • Novelty (abstracts, meeting proceedings, preprints are not considered to compromise novelty)
  • Broad clinical significance
  • Importance to the specific field

 

Review process

Once a manuscript is submitted for publication as a hard copy by mail, it is registered (date of registration) and is subject to double blind peer review, neither the authors nor the reviewers do not know each other. All submitted manuscripts are assessed by the editor(s) for suitability for the review process. The average time of the reviewing process is 4 – 6 months.

Manuscripts that are sent for formal review typically go to 2 referees who are appointed by the editorial board. The referees are asked for their opinion about the suitability of the paper for publication. Based on their advice, the editor decides to:

– accept the manuscript, with or without minor revision

– invite the authors to revise the manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached

– or reject the manuscript, typically on grounds of specialist interest, lack of novelty, insufficient conceptual advance or major technical and/or interpretational problems.

The result of the review is based on the offered recommendations of the reviewers and decision of the editor on publication of the article is final. In the case of a positive result of the review, the manuscript is sent to the editor for further processing and publication. If necessary, the manuscript is sent to the author for revision in accordance with the recommendations of the reviewer(s). Revised manuscript sent for re-review. In the case of the negative results of the review, the author receives the information that the article is not accepted for publication with motivated refusal. The manuscript is not returned to the author.

Journal editors treat the submitted manuscript and all communication with authors and referees as confidential. Authors must also treat communication with the journal as confidential: correspondence with the journal, reviewers' reports and other confidential material must not be posted on any website or otherwise publicised without prior permission from the editors, whether or not the submission is eventually published.

 

Selecting referees

Referee selection is critical to the review process, and our choice is based on many factors, including expertise, reputation, specific recommendations, and our previous experience with the referee. We avoid using referees who are chronically slow, sloppy, too harsh or too lenient. We invite referees and only on acceptance of the invitation will a referee have access to the full paper.

 

Upon receiving a manuscript to referee

To avoid unnecessary delays in processing manuscripts, please do the following immediately upon receipt of a manuscript for review:

  • check thoroughly the deadline to ensure that there have been no misunderstandings
  • in regarding to timing, contact the editorial office immediately if you anticipate any difficulties
  • read the editor's letter carefully and be sure to note any points specific to the manuscript that the editor may have requested your opinion on
  • skim the manuscript and consider whether there might be a conflict of interest for you (with the authors, their institution, their funding sources) and whether you can judge the article impartially
  • consider whether the topic seems to fit the scope of the journal and is likely to be of sufficient general interest for publication.

 

Confidentiality

Referees should treat the review process as being strictly confidential, and should keep the following guidelines in mind:

– refereed manuscripts for the Journal should not be discussed with anyone not directly involved in the review process

– if colleagues or experts are consulted, they should be identified to the editors

– referees should, as a rule, not disclose their identities to the authors or to other colleagues since they may be asked to comment on the criticisms of other referees and may then find it difficult to be objective. Should they feel strongly about making their identities known to the authors, they should do so via the editor. We strongly disapprove of any attempt by authors to determine the identities of referees or to confront them, and encourage referees to neither confirm nor deny any speculation in this regard.

 

Writing the report

The main purpose of referee reports is to provide the editors with the information that they need to reach a decision, but they should also instruct the authors on how to strengthen their manuscript if revision is a possibility. Referees are asked to submit both confidential comments to the editor and those that can be directly transmitted to the authors. We recommend the following division of the report:

While transmitting comments to the authors, referees are asked to maintain a positive and impartial, but critical, attitude in evaluating manuscripts. Criticisms should remain dispassionate; offensive language is not acceptable. As far as possible, a negative report should explain to the authors the weaknesses of their manuscript, so that they can understand the basis for a decision to ask for revision or to reject the manuscript. The report for authors should not include a recommendation regarding publication, which is regarded as confidential information since the final decision regarding acceptance, revision or rejection rests with the editor.

 

Timing

The Journal is committed to rapid editorial decisions and publication as efficiency in this process is a valuable service both to our authors and the scientific community as a whole. We therefore ask that referees respond promptly or inform us if they anticipate a significant delay, which allows us to keep the authors informed and, where necessary, find alternative referees.

 

Conflicts of interest

In order to ensure fairness in the referee process, we try to avoid referees who: have recent or ongoing collaborations with the authors, have commented on drafts of the manuscript, are in direct competition, have a history of dispute with the authors, or have a financial interest in the outcome. Because it is not possible for the editors to know of all possible biases, however, we ask referees to draw our attention to anything that might affect their report, including commercial interests, and to decline to referee in cases where they feel unable to be objective. We do not find it necessary to exclude referees who have reviewed a paper for another journal; the fact that two journals have independently identified a particular person as well qualified to referee a paper does not decrease the validity of her/his opinion in our view.

 

Publication policy and ethical considerations

In spite of the journal best efforts to identify breaches of publication policy or ethical conduct, such as plagiarism or author conflict of interest, the referees who are more familiar with the field are more likely to recognise such problems and should alert the editors to any potential problems in this regard.

AUTHORS GUIDELINES

These guidelines are designed for authors in accordance with the requirements of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which aims to use best practices and ethical standards in research and their publication in medical journals.

The journal accepts articles on the results of research, including dissertations, review articles, case reports, comments and other materials.

The authors are responsible for the accuracy and originality of the materials provided (facts, quotations, surnames, names, research results, etc.).

The editorial staff provides peer review of articles, performs specialized and literary editing, and reserves the right to reduce the volume of articles. The refusal of the authors to publish the article can be done without explaining its reasons and not be considered as a negative conclusion about the scientific and practical importance of the work.

Non-compliant articles are not reviewed and returned to authors.

Directing the article for publication

The manuscript is sent to the publisher by mail or e-mail alexandra@zdr.kiev.ua. The manuscript is accompanied by an official letter from the research institution signed by the organization's management; the opinion of the expert committee of the institution, as well as the cover page of the manuscript signed by the head of the organization, certified by the seal of the institution.

In addition, there must be a statement that the manuscript has not yet been published, accepted or is under consideration by another publisher. Simultaneous submission of the manuscript to different publishers, as well as duplication of articles (even if the article is published in another language) is not allowed.

Expert opinion of the institution for publication. Each research institution has an expert commission. The main purpose of the expert committee is to provide a preliminary conclusion on the possibility of publishing an article that indicates compliance with ethical and publication standards, the conclusion of the local ethics committee, confidentiality, innovation of the article, conflict of interest, etc. The result of the peer review is a positive decision to send an article for publication, which is sent to the journal together with a cover letter and manuscript.
