- Research involving human participants and/or animals
Journal of Bionic Memory adopt ICMJE Recommendations on Protection of Research Participants. For more information, click here!
In addition to ICMJE recommendations, we also support 3Rs principals (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) for humans and animals usage in research. Briefly 3Rs are mentioned below, and more information can be accessed here!
Replacement: approaches which avoid or replace the use of animals
Reduction: approaches which minimise the number of animals used per experiment
Refinement: approaches which minimise animal suffering and improve welfare
All work should be done with the permission of local human subjects or animal care committees (institutional and national) and clinical trials should be registered to legislation. The official numbers from these committees must be found in the Materials and Methods section (or text describing the experimental procedures).
1) Statement of human rights
The studies involving human participants should state that the research has been endorsed by the institutional and / or national research ethics committee and that it is conducted in accordance with the ethical standards set out in the Helsinki Declaration of 1964, and that subsequent changes are also met (1).
2) Statement on the welfare of animals
If you have done experimental research on animals, authors should indicate whether the international, national and / or institutional guidelines for the care and use of the animals are followed, and whether the work has been approved by an institutional research ethics committee.
- Informed consent
If manuscripts report the results of an experimental research of human subjects, all authors must fulfill the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) requirements on confidentiality and informed consent from patients and study participants. Therefore;
1- Informed consent is obtained from all participants before they are included in the work.
2- Distinguishing details of the participants examined (name, date of birth, identification numbers and other information) should not be published in print, photographs and genetic profiles.
3-Where someone is deceased, please make sure that you have written permission from the family or estate.

If the decision conflicts between two reviewers, it will be send to third peer reviewer. The typical review will take in 2-4 weeks. When the manuscript is received from peer reviewer there will be one of the following outcome: 1) accepted manuscript without revisions, 2) invite authors to resubmit the manuscript after minor or major changes while the final decision is kept pending, 3) or reject the manuscript. When the manuscript is returned for revision prior to acceptance, the revised manuscript must be submitted within 30 days after the author's receipt of the referee's reports. Revised article: Accept/Reject/Re-revise. The final decision is sent to the authors.
