Study Protocols

​​Medicine® is excited to announce that we will now consider Study Protocols for publication to help improve the standard of medical research. Study protocols enable more information to be available on current studies, while promoting collaboration and helping to prevent unnecessary duplication of work. Medicine® will charge an article publishing fee (APC) of $1050 to publish a Study Protocol under the CCBY license. Study protocols will be published without peer review if the study receives ethics approval and the clinical trial is registered in an approved registry.

Study Protocols must abide by the following criteria in order to be considered for publication:

Study Protocols are fully-citable and will be available freely online. Publishing your Study Protocol in Medicine® does not commit you to submitting any additional or final publications of the study to the journal.

More information on study protocols can be found on the Study Protocol FAQ page.
