Review Process

Articles submitted for publication will go through three stages of review, namely: Desk review, Anti-plagiarism check, and Double blind peer-review. Because BJMC takes academic integrity very seriously, articles that return above 15% similarity index on the Turnitin anti-plagiarism software will be rejected. Authors are advised not to run their papers on Turnitin before submission as this may increase the similarity percentage returned when we run it. This is very important.

Where an article is recommended for publication by our reviewers, required corrections (whether minor or major) are expected to be THOROUGHLY and ADEQUATELY effected by the author(s), otherwise, such articles WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED. Hard copies are dispatched in the last week of April.
