Abstract

In order to determine the trend and characteristics of the manuscripts received and rejected in the Peruvian Journal of Experimental Medicine and Public Health (RPMESP), the manuscripts that followed the editorial process from 2011 to 2017 were analyzed, according to the type of manuscript, characteristics of the corresponding author, and rejection decisions. An increase in manuscripts received was found, from 283 in 2011 to 495 in 2017. Corresponding authors from abroad, from the provinces of Peru, and females presented an increase in the total contribution of manuscripts, as well as originals. The global average rejection was 63.1%: 55.8% in 2011 and 74.7% in 2017. The non-acceptance of original manuscripts prior to peer review was mainly due to deficiencies in style and format (51.5%). There is an increase in the reception of manuscripts, with differences according to the characteristics of the corresponding author.
