PEER REVIEW PROCESS
The acceptance criteria for all papers are based on the quality and originality of the research and its clinical and scientific significance. An initial decision will normally be made within 4 weeks of receipt of a manuscript, and the reviewers comments are sent to the corresponding authors by e-mail. Revised manuscripts must be submitted online by the corresponding author. The corresponding author must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the referees' comments item by item. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within 8 weeks of the editorial decision is regarded as a withdrawal.
All published papers become the permanent property of the Korean Association of Internal Medicine, and must not be published elsewhere without written permission. A copyright transfer form should be submitted to the editorial office by fax or regular mail on acceptance.
A minimum of 50 off-prints will be provided on request, at the author's expense. An off-print order form outlining the cost will be sent to the corresponding author with the page proofs.
