Open Access Policy

TMR is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.

That the author(s) acknowledge that all articles published by Hong Kong Gold Orchid Science and Technology Co., Limited are selected by an in-house editor and fully peer-reviewed by external reviewers. Hong Kong Gold Orchid Science and Technology Co., Limited applies the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC BY-NC 4.0) license, which permits others to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial.

 
Peer Review Policy

TMR follows a double blind peer review process, to ensure impartial editorial decision-making. All submissions to TMR are assessed by an editor, who will decide whether they are suitable for peer review. If an editor is on the author list or has any other competing interest regarding a specific manuscript, another member of the Editorial Board will be assigned to assume responsibility for overseeing peer review.

Submissions felt to be suitable for consideration will be sent for peer review by appropriate independent experts. Editors will make a decision based on the reviewers’ reports and authors are sent these reports along with the editorial decision on their manuscript. Authors should note that even in light of one positive report, concerns raised by another reviewer may fundamentally undermine the study and result in the manuscript being rejected.

 

Peer Reviewers

Authors may suggest potential reviewers if they wish; however, whether or not to consider these reviewers is at the editor's discretion. Authors should not suggest recent collaborators or colleagues who work in the same institution as themselves. Authors who wish to suggest peer reviewers can do so in the cover letter and should provide institutional email addresses where possible, or information which will help the editor to verify the identity of the reviewer.

Authors may request exclusion of individuals as peer reviewers, but they should explain the reasons in their cover letter on submission. Authors should not exclude too many individuals as this may hinder the peer review process. Please note that the editor may choose to invite excluded peer reviewers.

Intentionally falsifying information, for example, suggesting reviewers with a false name or email address, will result in rejection of the manuscript and may lead to further investigation in line with our misconduct policy.

 

Confidentiality

Reviewers are therefore required to respect the confidentiality of the peer review process and not reveal any details of a manuscript or its review, during or after the peer-review process, beyond the information released by the journal. If reviewers wish to involve a colleague in the review process they should first obtain permission from the journal. The editor should be informed of the names of any individuals who assisted in the review process when the report is returned.

 
Article Processing Charges (APCs)

In 2017, Articles processing charges and submission charges are free. All accepted papers will be published free-of-charge. Moreover, Traditional Chinese Medicine Inheritance Funds will independently decide on adwards which include  Distinguished Contribution Award with $5,000, first prize with $2,000, second prize with $500, and third prize with certificate.
