Clinical and Experimental Medicine (CEM) is a multidisciplinary journal that aims to be a forum of scientific excellence and information exchange in relation to the basic and clinical features of the following fields: hematology, onco-hematology, oncology, virology, immunology, and rheumatology. The journal publishes reviews and editorials, experimental and preclinical studies, translational research, prospectively designed clinical trials, and epidemiological studies. Papers containing new clinical or experimental data that are likely to contribute to changes in clinical practice or the way in which a disease is thought about will be given priority due to their immediate importance. Case reports will be accepted on an exceptional basis only, and their submission is discouraged. The major criteria for publication are clarity, scientific soundness, and advances in knowledge. In compliance with the overwhelmingly prevailing request by the international scientific community, and with respect for eco-compatibility issues, CEM is now published exclusively online. Following submission via Editorial Manager®, articles are peer-reviewed and, if accepted, are rapidly published, resulting in immediate international exposure through PubMed/MEDLINE indexing.
Manuscripts submitted for publication must contain a statement to the effect that all human studies have been reviewed by the appropriate ethics committee and have therefore been performed in accordance with the ethical standards laid down in an appropriate version of the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki and the subsequent amendments. It must also be clearly stated in the text that all persons gave informed consent prior to inclusion in the study. Details that might disclose the identity of participants under study should be omitted. Reports of animal experiments must state that the “Principles of Laboratory Animal Care” (National Institute of Health publication 82-23, revised in 1985 and further implemented in 1996) were followed, as well as specific national laws (e.g., the current version of the “German Law on the Protection of Animals”) where applicable.
The editor-in-chief reserves the right to reject manuscripts that do not comply with the above-mentioned requirements. Author(s) are accountable for the completeness and accuracy of their reports and will be held responsible for false or faulty statements or for failure to fulfill such requisites.
