Scope and policy

CES Medicine is for staff and administrative care health institutions, students and professors of Medicine and related areas, and in general all who have an interest in the issues of the journal. CES Medicine publishes manuscripts discriminated under the following headings: scientific or technological research, review articles, discussion paper, short article, case report, topic review, letters to the editor, editorial, translation, literature review and documents not derived from research. For publication in the journal CES Medicine, we accept papers in Spanish, Portuguese or English.

The manuscripts received undergo a selection process through peer review. In a first review, the editorial board determines whether the manuscript meets the general criteria. A second review examines the scientific value of the document and the usefulness of its publication, which is in charge of peer experts in the field and evaluates the manuscript independently. In a third review, based on the general criteria, the scientific value of the article, the usefulness of its publication, and the opinion of experts, the Editorial Board makes a decision that may be: denial, conditional acceptance or final acceptance. Upon conditional acceptance, the revised text undergoes a new review to verify that you have met the recommendations requested, and if so, is definitively accepted, otherwise rejected. At are the criteria we use for evaluation of manuscripts.
