The IRPH Contributorsí FAQ:

 

 

WHAT KINDS OF MANUSCRIPTS DOES IRPH CONSIDER?

IRPH is interested in a wide range of manuscripts presenting original research and commentary in all areas of scientific research. For original research, the common thread is that the work should reveal novel concepts of broad importance to the scientific community. Categories of papers include Research Articles. 
For a more detailed description of the categories of manuscripts we consider, please see our general information for authors.

 

Regular articles: These should describe new and carefully confirmed findings, and experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. The length of a full paper should be the minimum required to describe and interpret the work clearly.

 

Short Communications: A Short Communication is suitable for recording the results of complete small investigations or giving details of new models or hypotheses, innovative methods, techniques or apparatus. The style of main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications are 2 to 4 printed pages (about 6 to 12 manuscript pages) in length.

 

Reviews: Submissions of reviews and perspectives covering topics of current interest are welcome and encouraged. Reviews should be concise and no longer than 4-6 printed pages (about 12 to 18 manuscript pages). Reviews manuscripts are also peer-reviewed.

 

HOW FAST CAN IRPH EVALUATE MY MANUSCRIPT?
IRPH is committed to speedy evaluation of manuscripts, and our record in this respect in recent years compares favorably with those of major competing publications. For most papers, reviewers are asked to return comments within 1 week; papers that call for particularly rapid assessment, owing to competition or other factors, can often be reviewed within 48 hours or less. Most papers are published online within 10 days of initial submission, www.irphouse.com

 

WILL MY MANUSCRIPT REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL?
Yes. IRPH treats all submitted manuscripts as confidential documents. IRPH also instructs and expects our Board of Reviewing Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as confidential material. Our peer review process is also confidential, and identities of reviewers are not released under any circumstances.

 

IS IRPH A GLOBAL PUBLISHER?
IRPH is not just a geographically localized publication house. We view IRPH as a global enterprise and want to publish the best papers in IRPH, from all countries and regions. We welcome submissions from authors around the world. 
We review most manuscripts electronically to facilitate the use of expert referees, regardless of location. Similarly, our readers come from all over the world.

 

WHAT IS IRPH'S PRESS EMBARGO POLICY? CAN I PROVIDE DATA TO OTHER SCIENTISTS OR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES? CAN I PRESENT MY WORK IN A SCIENTIFIC MEETING/CONFERENCE/SYMPOSIUM/PRESENTATIONS?
IRPH's press embargo policy is designed to ensure broad and accurate coverage of authors' published research by the press. Here are some guidelines:

 

IRPH strongly encourages scientists to share data or results with colleagues and officials in response to health, safety, environmental, or other emergencies. Our press embargo is not intended to interfere with the normal dissemination of information between researchers and government officials as is necessary to ensure that the best and most current data are available to advise policy and decision making. Any resulting press coverage will in no way affect our decision on a paper.

Scientists are welcome to present their results of their submitted or upcoming IRPH papers to colleagues at professional meetings and to share data with colleagues. Presentation at a meeting will in no way affect a decision on a manuscript. 

Comments to press reporters attending your scheduled session at a professional meeting should be limited to clarifying the specifics of your presentation. In such situations, we ask that you do not expand beyond the content of your talk or give copies of the paper, data, overheads, or slides to reporters.

 

WHAT'S THE POLICY ON PRIOR PUBLICATION OF RESULTS?

IRPH will only consider research papers that are reporting primary data and the main conclusions for the first time. Your cover letter should clarify how the IRPH submission is original. Any related manuscript that is under consideration or accepted in another journal but not yet published by any author on the manuscript should be sent to IRPH with your submission or revision (please send these to irpeditor@gmail.com and include your Paper Code Number (paper code is given to you upon your first time submission of paper, use this paper code for future reference) for reference. Discovery of a related paper by any author that is not disclosed may be cause for immediate rejection without appeal or editorial retraction after publication.
