Archiv Euromedica is an open access, peer-reviewed journal. Its mission is to contribute to the exchange and share of scientific knowledge in various areas of medicine and other health sciences, with an interdisciplinary focus and with national and international scope.
The Journal aims at promoting exchange of information between scientists and doctors from different countries, in educating of doctors throughout their professional lives and, thereby, to contribute to improving the health of the public. Journal Archiv EuroMedica highlights researches on all aspects of medicine and particularly applied fundamental researches in medicine, latest developments and methods of treatment and prevention as well as new technologies in medical education and postgraduate education of medical professionals.
It is presently indexed in ESCI (Web of Science, Clarivate Analytics), eLIBRARY.RU, Google Scholar.
We state that our Journal follows the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/
This journal provides free immediate access to all articles. We are proud to make the research freely available and to contribute to a greater interchange of global knowledge.
Whenever a relationship exists between authors and any public or private organisation, which may generate a conflict of interest, this possibility must be communicated and it will be included in the article. In case that a conflict does not exist, it should also be mentioned in the title page.
Editors should set and regularly monitor a conflict of interest policy for editors, reviewers, editorial board members, editorial staff, and authors.
Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as coauthors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be named in an Acknowledgement section. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors (according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
Authors should observe high standards with respect to publication ethics as set out by ICMJE recommendations for reporting about patients.
Identifying information should not be published in written descriptions, photographs and pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) has given written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires the patient be shown the manuscript to be published.
There are might be following complaints as stated below:
All complaints will be acknowledged (within three working days if by email). If possible a definitive response will be made within a week. If this is not possible an interim response will be given within two weeks. Interim responses will be provided until the complaint is finally resolved. If the complainant remains unhappy, complaints should be escalated to the editor, whose decision is final.
Please write your complaint with journal title, vol. no., issue no., paper ID, paper title, page no. preferably in writing by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are fully support the Data Sharing Policies of the International Council for Science:
All who produce, share, and use data and metadata are stewards of those data, and have responsibility for ensuring that the authenticity, quality, and integrity of the data are preserved, and respect for the data source is maintained by ensuring privacy where appropriate, and encouraging appropriate citation of the dataset and original work and acknowledgement of the data repository.
As we deal with reproducible research data according to Reproducibility Guide - The rOpenSci Project there are 2 basic considerations. The first is to show evidence of the correctness of your results. The second reason to aspire to reproducibility is to enable others to make use of our methods and results. Adopting a reproducible workflow means publishing our code and data in order to allow our colleagues to extend our approach to new applications with a minimum of effort. This has the potential to save a great deal of time in transmitting knowledge to future researchers.
Ethical oversight should include, but is not limited to,
The objectives of this policy are to ensure the protection of patient confidentiality while at the same time seeking to facilitate the serious communication of medical information. We believe that consent takes place in the context of the doctor–patient relationship, and it is the doctor’s duty, as author, to ensure that consent is fully informed and freely given. It is the author’s duty to protect the patient’s rights and the journal’s duty to uphold best practice by encouraging authors to comply.
Patient anonymity should be preserved. Photographs need to be cropped sufficiently to prevent human subjects being recognized or an eye bar should be used.
Vulnerable populations are defined as groups who are at increased risk of receiving a disparity in medical care on the basis of financial circumstances or social characteristics such as age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, spirituality, disability, or socioeconomic or insurance status.
Medical research is subject to ethical standards that promote respect for all human beings and protect their health and rights. Source: http://www.wma.net/e/policy/b3.htm].
Journal “Archiv Euromedica” retains the right to reject any manuscript on the basis of unethical conduct of either human or animal studies. All investigations on human subjects must include a statement that the subject gave informed consent.
Researchers must have respect for animals' worth, regardless of their utility value, and for animals' interests as living, sentient creatures. Researchers must be respectful when choosing their topic and methods, and when disseminating their research. Researchers must provide care that is adapted to the needs of each laboratory animal.
Researchers are responsible for studying whether there are alternatives to experiments on animals. Alternative options must be prioritised if the same knowledge can be acquired without using laboratory animals. Source: Ethical Guidelines for the Use of Animals in Research
A researcher must consider all possible consequences of the research and balance the risks for human subjects with proportionate benefit. Confidentiality and anonymity are closely connected with the rights of beneficence, respect for the dignity and fidelity and should be granted without compromise.
Good confidentiality practice in research might be defined as a balance between the contemporary public concerns against the benefits of using data for research.
Ethical business/marketing practices
As editors of Journal Archiv Euromedica we attempt to strike an appropriate balance between protecting authors’ rights and providing flexible reuse rights for readers. To this end, Copyright Notice, our Open Access Policy and Creative Commons licensing (CC BY-NC-ND 4) are addressed.
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the
author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal’s Editor-in-Chief or publisher and cooperate with

All articles published in our journals are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services we provide. It is implemented by means of an article-level APC in the amount of 650,00 euros for each published article.
