Guide To Authors

A grammatically sound and well-written manuscript in all manners should be submitted either via online submission system or email to editor.cmdr@gmail.com.
The authors will be notified immediately after receiving a manuscript.
Please note that Curr Med Drug Res is an open access journal and the manuscripts are freely available to download. As the publisher is not receiving any financial support from any source, hence, the production cost of the journal is covered from its valued authors.
The publication charges are very nominal (INR 2500/ USD 50 per article) and can be waived off partially on request. The publication charges will be only paid in case a manuscript is accepted for publication.
The acceptance of the manuscript will be subjected to the reviewers’ comments.
The author using animals or human subjects for their studies must be provided approval/ license number from Institutional/ National/ International pre-clinical/ clinical ethical committee. In the case, if approval number is not provided under the experimental section, the manuscript will be summarily rejected.
The experiments on animals and humans must be performed strictly as per "CPCSEA" and "ICMR" respectively. These guidelines are online available at cpcsea.nic.in and icmr.nic.in.
The manuscripts send to reviewers those have expertise in the area of the manuscript for which they are inviting to. Once agreed for the review of a manuscript, a reviewer submits the comments/ suggestion within 7 days. In selected cases, additional time can be given to complete the review. It should be understood that there are no conflicts/ association between the reviewer and the author(s), if any, one must be informed to Editor. The decision of a reviewer is unbiased.
