Editorial Independence

Although the CBJ is sponsored financially by the Cardiovascular Research Center of Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences, it benefits from editorial freedom. The Editor evaluates and accepts articles based only on significance, originality, validity, and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal.

Our editorial policy is consistent with the principles of editorial independence presented by the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME).



Scientific and Initial Screening

CBJ staff would check the structure and content of manuscripts to ensure compliance with standard structures (based on the type of study), the Journal’s scope, standard guidelines, quality, novelty, and adherence to ethical issues. In this step, articles would be screened in the shortest possible time. This step helps the Editorial Board and the Editor to make fair final decisions, and improves the final quality of published articles.
