Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • The submission file does not include any spaces in the file name (i.e., My_Article_Name.doc instead of My Article Name.doc).
  • The author's name has been removed from the document's “Properties,” which in Microsoft Word is found in the “File” menu.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • Use of terms specific to a brand or company product or term is not allowed unless first cleared with the Editor in Chief. This is to avoid confusion and perception that the Journal is promoting a specific brand or product.
  • Please refer to the AMA Manual of Style: A Guide for Authors and Editors for the format and style of reporting for your manuscript submission.

Author Guidelines

Welcome and thank you for considering the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention (IJDRP) as a venue for your work. 

The mission of this open-access, medical journal, is to improve human health through better nutrition and lifestyle, effectively reversing and preventing chronic disease. The Journal strives to accomplish this goal through publishing research aimed at 1) increasing the understanding of how diet influences health from molecular to population levels; 2) developing nutritional strategies, guidelines, and education; 3) informing government and corporate policy; 4) educating researchers and practitioners; and, 5) disseminating accurate and timely nutrition information to health professionals and the public.

ALL articles must contain "disclosures." "conflicts of interest," and "relationships with industry." If there are none - none may be sited.

Disclosures refer to the act of revealing information about potential biases or relevant financial or personal interests that may influence a decision or action. Disclosures can be made voluntarily or may be required by law, policy, or ethical guidelines. The purpose of disclosures is to ensure transparency and to allow others to make informed judgments about the credibility and objectivity of the individual or organization making the disclosure.
Conflicts of interest refer to situations in which an individual or organization has competing interests that may influence their judgment or decision-making. Conflicts of interest can arise from financial relationships, personal relationships, professional obligations, or other factors. 
The key difference between disclosures and conflicts of interest is that disclosures reveal information about potential biases or interests, whereas conflicts of interest refer to actual or perceived conflicts that may compromise objectivity or impartiality.
Relationships with industry. These are generally conflicts of interest if there is a corporate entity involved with the research or the researcher. Relationships with industry unrelated to the research or the topic of and editorial would not be conflicts and would not need to be disclosed.  

The focus and the topics of IJDRP are outlined below along with requirements for submission/publication.
