References and Citation Control
Scientific research builds upon previous studies. In new studies, references and attributions to the previous studies are provided within the framework of certain rules. Intentional or unintentional mistakes in scientific studies harm the reliability of the study and publication. International Journal of Medical Justice [IJMJ], in accordance with its publication ethics, considers it to be an obligation for the accepted manuscripts to have correct and complete references and attributions. Therefore, each study, after acceptance, is checked in terms of bibliography, referencing and attribution by a company chosen by the editorial board. Incurring costs lie with the author(s).
The full texts of the accepted manuscripts are processed for bibliography, referencing and attribution check in the following steps:
Bibliography is prepared according to the format of the “Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals” (“Vancouver” style, as outlined in the ICMJE sample references).
The in-text references of the references given in the bibliography should be in line with rules and regulations, and mistakes are corrected.
Attributions of the in-text references are checked. The author(s) is asked to provide the missing ones, and the incorrect ones are corrected.
For the manuscripts the English rules and regulations of referencing are used.
REFERENCES: Data and manuscript not published yet should not be included among the reference list. These should be stated in the main text as "author(s), unpublished data, year". Reference numbers should be indicated at the end of the sentences in the text where numbers are enclosed in [square brackets] on line with the text (not superscript) and references should be numbered consecutively in the order they are mentioned in the text. References should be typed in consistence with the following examples.
EndNote style for International Journal of Medical Justice [IJMJ] is compatible with JAMA style.
