1. Website

The URL address of the official journal website is http://www.jtraumainj.org. The Journal of Trauma and Injury (JTI) team endeavors to make a good website. JTI website demonstrates that care has been taken to ensure high ethical and professional standards. It does not contain any misleading information, including any attempts to mimic other journal/publisher websites.

2. Name of journal

The official journal title is Journal of Trauma and Injury. The abbreviated title is J Trauma Inj.

3. Peer review process

JTI has an online submission and peer review system at https://submit.jtraumainj.org. All papers, including those invited by the Editor, are subject to peer review. A manuscript is first reviewed for its format and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal. If the manuscript does not fit the aims and scope of the journal or does not adhere to the Instructions for Authors, it may be returned to the author immediately after receipt and without a review. Before reviewing, all submitted manuscripts are inspected by Similarity Check powered by iThenticate (https://www.crossref.org/services/similarity-check/), a plagiarism-screening tool.

All manuscripts from editors, employees, or members of the Editorial Board are processed the same way as other unsolicited manuscripts. During the review process, they will not engage in the selection of reviewers nor the decision process. Editors will not handle their own manuscripts even if they are commissioned ones.

The journal uses a double-blind peer-review process: the reviewers do not know the identity of the authors, and vice versa. All manuscripts undergo peer review by at least two reviewers with relevant expertise selected by the Editorial Board. A third reviewer will be assigned if there is a discrepancy between two reviewers. Authors will receive notification of the publication decision, along with copies of the reviews and instructions for revision, if appropriate, within two months after receipt of the submission.

The Editorial Board has the right to revise and edit the styles and structures of submitted manuscripts within the context if necessary. Once the decision on publication as accept, revision, or reject is made, it is directly notified to the corresponding author. After the final draft of manuscripts are proven to be appropriate according to the publication policies and styles of the journal, the decision of publication is finalized and expected publication date will be given. Rejected manuscripts are not to be considered again.

The decision to publish will be made by the Editorial Board of the journal after the peer review. JTI셲 average turnaround time from submission to decision is 4 to 8 weeks. The Editor is responsible for the final decision whether the manuscript is accepted or rejected.
