The Review and Publication process

Editor-in-Chief and Co-Editors accept submitted manuscripts with the understanding that the authors cooperate in a timely manner to the review/publication process, including response to future correspondence from the Clinician and Technology journal.

All manuscripts submitted to the Clinician and Technology journal are subjected to peer review. The Editor relies on evaluations by at least 2 members of the Editorial Board and outside experts in deciding whether submitted manuscripts should be accepted for publication, revised for further peer review, or rejected. A paper, which is accepted by the reviewers for publication and which meets the Clinician and Technology journal style is usually published within six months. Corresponding authors will receive electronic galley proofs, with all figures and tables in place in PDF format. Complete instructions will be provided for revision. Proofs should be reviewed carefully by more than one person and returned, preferably by email, to the Publisher within 48 hours of receipt to avoid delay in publication. Otherwise, manuscripts will be published with staff corrections only. Changes that have been made to conform to the Journal style will stand if they do not alter the Authors’ meaning. Only the most critical changes to text will be accepted. Style changes or rewording of previously accepted material are discouraged.

Authors may submit original research articles only; the journal does not publish other types of articles (review, educational and similar articles) except for the articles as editorials written by invitation only.

Articles may be written in English, Czech or Slovak language; nevertheless, English is the preferred language of the journal. All articles must contain concise and well structured summary in English.

All articles must be submitted through this editorial system. Please, Check the instruction for authors before submitting your article.

There is no article processing fee in 2016. The journal is available in a paper form and the full version is published in .pdf format as well. The journal is distributed free of charge.
