Review system

All manuscripts should be submitted only through the online submission system of Journal of Trauma and Injury (http://www.jtraumainj.org/submission/Login.html/), where all the review and editing processes are performed. The homepage offers the ways to solve the technical problems regarding manuscript submission and review process. Only the first and corresponding authors can submit a manuscript through the online submission system. It is always allowed to check the review process and the relevant questions and answers regarding the online submission system. In addition, whenever any change occurs in any review process, the relevant information is transmitted to the first and corresponding authors. When asked to make final correction on a galley-proof, an author should submit the corrected galley-proof within one week.

Review and action

Two or more experts are asked to review every manuscript, and the Editorial Board decides whether to publish it or not on the basis of review results, and asks its authors for any revision or supplementation, if a decision for publication is made. The author submits a revised manuscript file again through the online submission system along with a file which shows how correction has been made to any issues pointed out by reviewers. At this time, the author’s corrections are marked in red.
Unless there is any special reason, it is considered as the abandonment of publication not to submit a revised manuscript file, including the answers to the issues pointed out by reviewers and board members, within 30 days, and review process is finished.
In principle, review is finished after the second review. If any further procedure is requested by any reviewers, the Editorial Board can decide whether to perform additional review process or not.
Reviewers and board members may ask the author to improve the English used on the manuscript as well as the content to a sufficient level, and the author should follow such request. If authors submit the certificate that can warrant the level of English issued by the official institution, the Editorial Board will approve it.
