Maintenance Note

On Friday, August 31, 2018 at 12:00 pm Eastern Time, JMIR will be completing a server migration to improve site stability and user experience. We expect to be back online Friday, August 31, 2018 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time. Should any problems arise our technical team will be using the weekend to resolve them, and users will be able to access our site by Sunday, September 2, 2018 at 1:00pm Eastern Time.

Author Guidelines


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.

  1. Paper adheres to JMIR Instructions for Authors

  2. To be eligible for the discounted ($950) Article Processing Fee: If this is a already reviewed GRANT-FUNDED grant proposal or protocol, authors select an "article section" with the word "(funded)" in it AND upload the existing peer-review reports (e.g. from the funding agency) as publishable Multimedia Appendix. It may be necessary to explain if the submitted proposal/protocol already took into account reviewer comments.

  3. If a proposal/protocol has not been funded OR if no peer-review reports are available/publishable, the paper will undergo external peer-review, and authors agree to pay the full APF ($1900) on acceptance. Early results, formative evaluations etc. are also in this category.
