ScientiFIT accepts articles for publication. The process for submission and publication are provided below.

 

Review Process (Invited authors are exempt from this process)

Article submission includes the following steps:

  • The author submits an article
  • The editorial board reviews the article
  • The editorial board submits its comments back to the author
  • The editorial board makes the final decision regarding publication
  • The editorial board contacts the author with the decision

Submission Process (Applies to all authors)

Submission Guidelines (Applies to all authors)

  • The article must fall within the scope of ScientiFIT, which is to promote better understanding of health
  • The article should be written in the “lay” language
