JEBIM is an open access, peer-reviewed journal. Each article accepted by peer review is made freely
available online immediately upon publication, is published under a Creative Commons license and will
be hosted online in perpetuity. Publication costs of the journal are covered by the collection of article
processing charges which are paid by the funder, institution or author of each manuscript upon
acceptance. There is no charge for submitting a paper to the journal.
If, after peer review, your manuscript is accepted for publication, a one-time article processing charge
(APC) is payable. This APC covers the cost of publication and ensures that your article will be freely
available online in perpetuity under a Creative Commons license.
An APC of $1,200 USD is payable upon acceptance.
Before submitting your manuscript to JEBIM, please ensure you have read the Aims & Scope.
All submissions (including invited material) are subjected to peer review. Authors are invited to
submit original articles of all types for consideration. The journal is currently accepting original
research articles, research reviews, brief communications, correspondences, editorials, and
Original Research: These are reports of original data and findings in a topic within the scope of
JEBIM. Original research must add to scientific knowledge on the subject and must be
completed in accordance with ethical principles. Research on humans or animals must have
applicable ethical approvals.
Research Reviews: Reviews should be a detailed examination of literature, which includes the
benefits, and drawbacks of a medicine, therapeutic technique, or anything else appropriate to
the journal. They are substantially composed of reports on previous research.
Brief Communications: This is a broad-scoped category for short papers discussing a topic
relevant to the journal.
Case reports can be submitted as brief communications. However, please note that case reports
are rarely published.
Correspondence: Letters to the editor can be submitted on any topic relevant to the journal and
are usually in response to an article published in the journal. They can suggest new subjects to
be incorporated by the journal or commend and review papers published in the journal. We
recommend that individuals considering submitting a letter to the editor should contact the
editor in chief first to discuss their manuscript. Authors should be aware that letters to the
editor are not always added to some databases/indexes.
Commentary: Commentaries are by invitation only. These are short summaries of significant
recent and forthcoming papers, published elsewhere, that provide additional insights, new
interpretations or speculation on the relevant topic. These manuscripts may include models,
which due to space limitations were not included or discussed in the original paper.
Commentaries may be written in free form, meaning that they do not need to be structured as a
research paper, however it must include an abstract of 150-200 words. They should be between
1000-2000 words and have no more than 25 references. Please include keywords for indexing
purposes. Figures are encouraged, but no more than three. Please give your commentary a brief
title and add the phrase “Comment on (citation to your original article).” underneath the
keywords. Commentary material may be peer reviewed at the editor’s discretion.
The SAGE Author Gateway has some general advice and on how to get published, plus links to
When writing up your paper, think about how you can make it discoverable. The title,
keywords and abstract are key to ensuring readers find your article through search
engines such as Google. For information and guidance on how best to title your article,
write your abstract and select your keywords, have a look at this page on the Gateway:
How to Help Readers Find Your Article Online
The journal’s policy is to have manuscripts reviewed by two expert reviewers. JEBIM utilizes a
double-blind peer review process in which the reviewer and authors’ names and information are
withheld from the other. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible, while maintaining
rigor. Reviewers make comments to the author and recommendations to the Editor-in-Chief
who then makes the final decision.
The Editor or members of the Editorial Board may occasionally submit their own manuscripts for
possible publication in the journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by
alternative members of the Board and the submitting Editor / Board member will have no
involvement in the decision-making process.
JEBIM is committed to delivering high quality, fast peer-review for your paper, and as such has
partnered with Publons. Publons is a third party service that seeks to track, verify and give credit
for peer review. Reviewers for JEBIM can opt in to Publons in order to claim their reviews or
have them automatically verified and added to their reviewer profile. Reviewers claiming credit
for their review will be associated with the relevant journal, but the article name, reviewer’s
decision and the content of their review is not published on the site. For more information visit
the Publons website.
Papers should only be submitted for consideration once consent is given by all contributing
authors. Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work contributed
to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors.
The list of authors should include all those who can legitimately claim authorship. This is all
(i) Made a substantial contribution to the concept or design of the work; or acquisition,
analysis or interpretation of data,
(ii) Drafted the article or revised it critically for important intellectual content,
(iii) Approved the version to be published,
(iv) Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public
responsibility for appropriate portions of the content.
Authors should meet the conditions of all of the points above. Each author should have
participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the
When a large, multicentre group has conducted the work, the group should identify the
individuals who accept direct responsibility for the manuscript. These individuals should fully
meet the criteria for authorship.
Acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of the research group alone
does not constitute authorship, although all contributors who do not meet the criteria for
authorship should be listed in the Acknowledgments section. Please refer to the International
Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) authorship guidelines for more information on
All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an
Acknowledgements section as well as in the title page. Examples of those who might be
acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who
provided only general support.
Individuals who provided writing assistance, e.g. from a specialist communications company, do
not qualify as authors and so should be included in the Acknowledgements section. Authors
must disclose any writing assistance – including the individual’s name, company and level of
input – and identify the entity that paid for this assistance. It is not necessary to disclose use of
language polishing services.
Any acknowledgements should appear first at the end of your article prior to your Declaration of
Conflicting Interests (if applicable), any notes and your References.
Please supply any personal acknowledgements separately to the main text to facilitate
anonymous peer review.
JEBIM requires all authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate
heading. Please visit the Funding Acknowledgements page on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway
to confirm the format of the acknowledgment text in the event of funding, or state: “This
research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or notfor-profit
It is the policy of JEBIM to require a declaration of conflicting interests from all authors enabling
a statement to be carried within the paginated pages of all published articles.
Please ensure that a ‘Declaration of Conflicting Interests’ statement is included both at the end
of your manuscript, after any acknowledgements and prior to the references as well as in your
title page. If no conflict exists, please state that ‘The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict
For guidance on conflict of interest statements, please see the ICMJE recommendations.
Medical research involving human subjects must be conducted according to the World Medical
Association Declaration of Helsinki.
Submitted manuscripts should conform to the ICMJE Recommendations for the Conduct,
Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals, and all papers
reporting animal and/or human studies must state in the methods section that the relevant
Ethics Committee or Institutional Review Board provided (or waived) approval. Please ensure
that you have provided the full name and institution of the review committee, in addition to the
For research articles, authors are also required to state in the methods section whether
participants provided informed consent and whether the consent was written or verbal.
Information on informed consent to report individual cases or case series should be included in
the manuscript text. A statement is required regarding whether written informed consent for
patient information and images to be published was provided by the patient(s) or a legally
Please also refer to the ICMJE Recommendations for the Protection of Research Participants.
All research involving animals submitted for publication must be approved by an ethics
committee with oversight of the facility in which the studies were conducted. The journal has
adopted the Consensus Author Guidelines on Animal Ethics and Welfare for Veterinary Journals
published by the International Association of Veterinary Editors.
JEBIM endorses the ICMJE requirement that clinical trials are registered in a WHO-approved
public trials registry at or before the time of first patient enrolment. However, consistent with
the AllTrials campaign, retrospectively registered trials will be considered if the justification for
late registration is acceptable. The trial registry name and URL, and registration number must be
included at the end of the abstract.
The relevant EQUATOR Network reporting guidelines should be followed depending on the type
of study. For example, all randomized controlled trials submitted for publication should include
a completed CONSORT flow chart as a cited figure and the completed CONSORT checklist should
be uploaded with your submission as a supplementary file. Systematic reviews and metaanalyses
should include the completed PRISMA flow chart as a cited figure and the completed
PRISMA checklist should be uploaded with your submission as a supplementary file. The
EQUATOR wizard can help you identify the appropriate guideline.
Other resources can be found at NLM’s Research Reporting Guidelines and Initiatives.
SAGE acknowledges the importance of research data availability as an integral part of the
research and verification process for academic journal articles.
JEBIM requests all authors submitting any primary data used in their research articles alongside
their article submissions to be published in the online version of the journal, or provide detailed
information in their articles on how the data can be obtained. This information should include
links to third-party data repositories or detailed contact information for third-party data
sources. Data available only on an author-maintained website will need to be loaded onto either
the journal’s platform or a third-party platform to ensure continuing accessibility. Examples of
data types include but are not limited to statistical data files, replication code, text files, audio
files, images, videos, appendices, and additional charts and graphs necessary to understand the
original research. The editor can also grant exceptions for data that cannot legally or ethically be
released. All data submitted should comply with Institutional or Ethical Review Board
requirements and applicable government regulations.
For further information, please contact the editorial office at email@example.com.
SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to
refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the
Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway.
JEBIM and SAGE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best
practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our authors and we
always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Equally, we seek to
protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked
with duplication-checking software. Where an article, for example, is found to have plagiarized
other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient
acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to
take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction);
retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author's
institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal action.
If material has been previously published, it is not generally acceptable for publication in a SAGE
journal. However, there are certain circumstances where previously published material can be
considered for publication. Please refer to the guidance on the SAGE Author Gateway or if in
doubt, contact the Editor at the address given below.
