Editorial policy

La Tunisie Médicale adheres to the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals developed by the ICMJE (International Commettee of Medical Journal Editors)
An article is reviewed for publication on the assumption that its contents have not been submitted simultaneously to another journal, have not been accepted for publication elsewhere and have not already been published; authors will be asked to confirm that this is the case during the electronic submission process.
Research ethics policy
The submitted manuscript must comply with the ethical recommendations of the Declaration of Helsinki. They must have been submitted, if required, either to personal data protection committee or to a national ethics committee.
La Tunisie Médicale applies the appropriate procedures and good practices in terms of conflict of interest and double publication published by COPE "Commettee on publication ethics".

Peer Review Process of La Tunisie Médicale

Each manuscript submitted to the journal is first checked by the secretariat to ensure compliance with authors’ instructions published on the site (references, number of words, structuring of abstracts, number of tables and figures, quality of figures, etc.).
The manuscript may be immediately refused by the editorial board if it does not meet the aim and scope of the journal or does not comply with the editorial and ethical policy of La Tunisie Médicale.
The manuscript is then anonymized and sent by the editor-in-chief to two reviewers who will proceed to a critical review.
The final decision of acceptance, rejection or revision is made by the editor in chief in consultation with the deputy-editor-in-chief concerned.

Duplicate Submission and Publication

Any attempt at dual publication will lead to automatic rejection, may prejudice acceptance of future submissions.
In general, if a manuscript has been peer-reviewed and published, any subsequent publication is duplication. Exceptions to this general rule may be:
a) Prior publication in meeting program abstract booklets or expanded abstracts must be referenced in the final manuscript.
b) A manuscript which extends an original database or which analyzes the original database in a different way in order to prove or disprove a different hypothesis. Previous manuscripts reporting the original database must, however, be referenced.

Fraudulent Publication

The following activities are examples of fraudulent publication practices:
a) Willful and knowing submissions of false data for publication.
b) Submission of data from sources not the author's (or authors') own.
c) Falsely certifying that the submitted work is original and has not been submitted to, or accepted by, another journal.
d) Sponsoring or vouching for a manuscript containing data over which the sponsor has no control or knowledge.
e) Allowing one's name to appear as an author without having contributed significantly to the study.
f) Adding an author's name to a manuscript to which he/she has not contributed or reviewed or agreed to in its current form.
g) Flagrant omission of reference to the work of other investigators which established their priority.
h) Falsification of any item on the copyright form.
i) Failure to disclose potential conflict of interest with a sponsoring agency.
These examples and guidelines should alert authors to potential problems that should be avoided when they are considering submission of a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal.
