RPMESP receives manuscripts in Spanish and English, related to public health or experimental medicine, that have not been published partially or totally, and that have not been submitted simultaneously to other scientific journals. Manuscripts deposited in certified preprint servers are eligible to be evaluated for publication in RPMESP.
The corresponding author is responsible for the registration and submission of the documents.
Steps for submitting an article to RPMESP:
- Start the registration process by selecting the “Register” button in the upper right corner of the web page. Then you must fill out the form in order to complete the registration process.
- If you are already registered, log in with your username and password in the “Login” option in the upper right corner of the web page.
- Once you have accessed the OJS platform, select the type of article and complete the checklist.
- Upload your manuscript as well as the required documentation and supplementary files (step “2. Upload submission”).
- Enter the article data (title, abstract and authors) (step “3. Enter metadata”).
- Finalize the submission (step “4. Confirmation”).
Check the status of your submission through the OJS system by logging in with your username and password.
Each uploaded file should not exceed 10 MB in size.
Submissions that do not include the required documentation will not be accepted; if so, the corresponding author will be informed.
Upon registration, RPMESP will assign a unique identification code to each article, which will be used throughout the editorial process.
Our submission instructions are also available as a PDF file.
NOTE - If you experience problems during the submission process, please contact us at email@example.com.
The following documents must be submitted:
- Sworn statement
- Tables and figures
- Approval by ethics committee (if necessary)
- Supplementary Material (if necessary)
- Copy of the letter from the General Director (in case the author is from INS)
All authors must register in the RPMESP OJS system. The ORCID number of each author must also be included in the system. If the system reports the following error: “The ORCID you have specified is not valid”, this message should be omitted; in that case the ORCID number will only be included on the First page of the article.
The Sworn Statement must be properly completed and signed by the corresponding author. The document must be read thoroughly before being submitted. The submitted Sworn Statement must be in PDF format.
Authors affiliated with the INS of Peru must submit a scanned copy of the document certifying that their research and its possible publication is known to the General Director of their center or office.
If the research involves humans and/or animals (the types of articles that require ethical approval can be found in our Ethics section), the code or document of approval from an institutional research ethics committee must be attached. This should be specified in the Ethical Aspects subsection of the Materials and Methods section of the manuscript.
Observational and experimental research on tuberculosis or COVID-19, carried out in Peru, must be registered in the Health Research Projects platform (PRISA). The registration code must be included in the Materials and Methods section of the manuscript.
Peruvian clinical trials must be registered in the platform of the Peruvian Registry of Clinical Trials (REPEC). Clinical trials from other countries should be registered in one of the primary registries of the World Health Organization Registry Network or registries approved by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - ICMJE. In both cases, the registry code should be included in the Materials and Methods section of the manuscript.
The sworn statement includes the title of the manuscript, the type of article, ethical statements, authorship statement, funding statement, conflicts of interest statement, preprint statement, and the statement related to whether the manuscript has been previously published in a scientific event or is part of a thesis. We recommend reading each statement thoroughly. The document is available for download as an editable Microsoft Word file; however, the Sworn Statement must be in PDF format when submitted.
