Author Guidelines

  1. Acceptance Criteria

The manuscript needs to be scientifically important, original, and interesting to the scientific audience for acceptance in the journal. According to the editorial policy, all submitted manuscripts undergo an in-depth double-blind peer review. The review procedure document is provided on the journal website.

  1. Types of content 

Contemporary advancement of technology in many areas made possible new methods in the Applied Medicine. Besides, our society has been introduced many new, complex elements which brought new challenges, habits and addictions. Human interference to the environment is much faster than the research done for the new health problem arisen. Climate change now is a major issue threatening public health. Therefore, Medicine cannot be thought isolated from other disciplines such as Natural Sciences.  An interdisciplinary approach is required to provide multi-aspect solutions to the issues overcoming the limitations of traditional single-disciplinary academic approach.

European Journal of Natural Sciences and Medicine (EJNM) welcomes and acknowledges recent, high-quality theoretical and empirical original research papers in the areas of Natural Sciences and Medicine, case studies, review articles, literature reviews, book reviews, conceptual frameworks, analytical and simulation models, surveys, direct observations, person-based experiments, case studies, and systematic reviews from researchers, academicians, professional and practitioners from all over the World.

  1. Topics

As a contribution to the field, EJNM aims to be a broad range of multidisciplinary platform in the related fields with all aspects of theory and practice, where researchers and scientists share discuss, and build a constructive discussion around interdisciplinary interventions with their significant recent findings to the scientific community and the audience worldwide.

Our main emphasis is given to “identification and prevention”.
