   The Journal of Current Psychosomatic Research, a franchise owned by Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences, requires all stakeholders involved in the journal, including reviewers, authors, and journal experts, to adhere strictly to publishing ethics in order to achieve the highest quality.
The submitted manuscript sent to the journal is received a code, which will be used during subsequent follow-ups.
 Initially, the manuscripts are checked by journal's experts for compliance with research ethical standards and the IRCT code. Articles from other countries are controlled for compliance with the Registry of Clinical Trials code and the journal's principal standards. Following this stage, experts examined the manuscripts using plagiarism checker software, which may take up to 10 days. Should any inconsistency or discrepancy arise in the above-mentioned issues, the author will be notified and given a maximum of five days to address them. If the author fails to respond, the journal reserves the right to reject the manuscript.
   After checking the above-mentioned issues, the manuscript is evaluated by a committee composed of two or more members of the editorial team. This stage aims to determine the alignment of the manuscript with the journal's objectives. This evaluation process lasts one week. In case of the manuscript's disapproval, the author will be notified of the reason for rejection. If the manuscript is approved, it will be forwarded to the reviewers (a minimum of three specialized reviewers and one statistical reviewer) designated by the evaluation team and the editor-in-chief. Reviewers are allotted up to 4 weeks to conduct their assessments. Ultimately, the review results are examined by the final reviewer, who will send a summary of their opinions to the author. This stage also spans one week. Thus, from the time of manuscript submission to review and final consolidation, the entire process takes a maximum of five weeks. While delays may sometimes occur, authors are advised to contact the journal at least six weeks after manuscript submission for follow-ups.
   Following sending back the manuscript, the authors are given a 10-day window to make necessary revisions. Authors are expected to respond to queries and submit the revised manuscript. Should additional time be required, authors must notify the journal. Without communication and response within the specified period, the journal issues a reminder, providing an extra three days for revisions. If there is still no response within the stipulated timeframe, the journal reserves the right to announce the rejection of the article.
   We will take every measure to preserve the confidentiality of the authors' identities throughout the manuscript review process, a double-blind process. However, it remains the authors' responsibility to ensure that their identities are not disclosed.
   After the revisions are sent, the manuscript will be sent to the final reviewer for reexamination, which takes two weeks.
   If further revisions are needed, the manuscript will be returned to the author. The author will be allotted ten days at this stage. If the revisions are accepted based on the journal's standards and the decisions of the editor-in-chief and editorial board, steps will be taken to proceed with the article's publication.
   The manuscript is sent to the editorial board for literary, technical, and scientific editing, as well as formatting, English translation, and translation verification. This process may take up to four weeks. After editing, the proof file is sent to the author for final approval. The authors have five days to review the file, make necessary changes, and submit it to the journal.
   The entire review process, from submission to publication, requires 12 weeks. However, if the manuscript is not accepted, the authors will be notified within six weeks.
    It should be noted that articles submitted by the staff and editorial board of CPRJ will also undergo the Peer Review Process. please refer to the following link.
