High Customer Satisfaction
For authors
Most authors appreciate WMJH's rapid decision and immediate publication after acceptance.
Authors can recommend peer reviewers. We ask authors to recommend, as preferred reviewers, researchers in the same field who know them well, so that they can review colleagues' manuscripts from more a more personal perspective.
Upon acceptance, manuscript processing includes manuscript editing, English editing, and re-drawing of figures to ensure a more lucid, simple presentation. After publication, authors can see the article-level metrics such as the number of hits, downloads, and citations via Crossref metadata, Altmetric, and other databases.
When an article is cited in other articles, this information is sent to the corresponding author of the cited article.
If an article is supported by research funds from the US National Institutes of Health, which requires deposition of the published article in PubMed Central, it is automatically deposited to PubMed Central after publication.
WJMH participates in the Crossref Funder Registry, so any article supported by funds can be listed in the Funder Registry. Thus, the funding organization can easily trace its output through the Funder Registry.
For reviewers
The review procedure in the e-submission system is very simple and clear.
Reviewers can send comments to both the authors and editor.
The reviewer's opinion is strongly reflected in the editorial decision.
For readers
Readers can enjoy reading the article in PubReader or e-pub 2.0 format. These formats are convenient because of the consistent font size in all browsers or book-like reading interface. Printing in PDF format is also possible.
The “cited by” function for references allows readers to move to the digital object identifier (DOI) landing page, PubMed site, or PubMed Central site of a reference.
Readers can trace the most frequently cited and read articles.
Readers can easily check the present status of every article through “Check for updates” (CrossCheck), provided by Crossref. If errata, corrigenda, retractions, or other changes in articles occur, they are easy to trace.
The Crossref text and data mining function of each article are good sources for systematic reviews or meta-analyses. Readers can benefit from access to the full text of related articles.
We provide video interviews with the author on the journal web page.
Rapid Review Decision and E-pub ahead of Print after Acceptance
The submitted manuscript is immediately checked by the editorial office, so the decision regarding whether to circulate the manuscript is usually made within 48 hours.
The first-round peer review is usually completed within 4 weeks.
If the manuscript is accepted after review and revision, it is published on the journal webpage and in PubMed as an e-pub ahead of print with a watermark. This enables the rapid presentation of new findings or opinions to the world before the final publishing process, including manuscript editing, English editing, PDF formatting, and XML production.
Guaranteed Scientific Quality and Peer Review

If a manuscript does not pass the initial quality control assessment or does not fit the aims and scope of the journal, it is recommended that the author revise the manuscript accordingly or submit it to another journal before the review process.
During the review process, raw or processed data can be provided to peer reviewers, allowing reviewers to examine the data and check the scientific soundness of the paper more rigorously. Based on the open data policy, readers can reproduce the same results with the raw data, enabling the best scientific quality assurance for the articles.
