All of the manuscripts which are sent to JMEST will be reviewed by experts in related disciplines (peer review) and the editorial team. Authors may be required to revise their manuscripts for reasons of any aspect. Manuscripts with excessive errors in any aspect may be returned to authors for retyping or may be rejected. The published manuscript must be approved by an ethics committee or consider the ethical aspects of research that can be accounted for. Moreover, for clinical research with humans as the subjects, the certificate of approval from the ethics committee must be attached.
