All manuscripts submitted to JPMA initially undergo internal / desk review. A manuscript not found suitable for publication as regards to the topic or poor writing, breach of ethical principles, or conflict of interest issues, is likely to be rejected on the initial internal editorial review stage.
After the internal / desk review, the manuscript is sent for external peer reviews. This is a double-blind process. Research articles are reviewed by two reviewers.
Original articles authored by the editorial board are also externally peer reviewed.
Editorials and obituaries authored by the editor-in-chief will not be subjected to an external peer review
