Index Copernicus (ICV) 2020

Our Index Copernicus has risen from 115.07 points for 2019 to 120.63 for 2020. It’s a clear proof that our hard work and the efforts of the previous editorial board have measurable results – and that our contributions to the world of scientific journals are meaningful.

 

Changes in publication rules

Please note that since October 1, 2021 after the article is published as ahead of print, it cannot be changed (which encompasses also affiliations and authors’ order). Such stipulation stems from requirements set by scientific databases in which the papers published in Polymers in Medicine are stored.

If the article is already accessible online as registered preprint on any website or in any database, and has been already assigned with a DOI, such information, together with an URL of the registered preprint, has to appear in the cover letter.

 

IMPORTANT! 

Please read thoroughly and familiarize yourself with our new statistical guidelines.

 

Two new sets of guidelines

EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators of Scientific Articles to be Published in English

Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals
