Women’s Health Bulletin (WHB) is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal, published by Health Policy Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. The journal considers articles on all aspects of the health and wellbeing of adolescent girls and women, with a particular focus on the physical, mental, and emotional health of women. The journal welcomes submissions on women's public health issues, health behaviors, breast cancer, gynecological diseases, mental health and health promotion. WHB publishes Review Articles, Research articles, Short Communications, Editorials, Commentaries, and Letters to the Editor.
Moreover, all submissions to the WHB undergo a fair, supportive and double anonymized peer review process. We follow the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals, issued by International Committee for Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), as well as the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) code of conduct for editors.
To facilitate a speedy turn-around when a rapid decision is required, Women's Health Bulletin offers a review model in which selected peer reviewers may be paid to deliver high-quality and speedy peer-review reports. This is optional - if you do not wish to pay for a fast-track peer review process, just submit your paper normally as described before in the instruction for authors. If you opt for fast track review, you are guaranteed: a rapid editorial decision and peer-review comments within 10 working days after submission and payment of the fee.
Review will no guarantee a manuscript to be accepted but it makes the judging process faster than the routine review process.
Fast Track Fee: 2,000,000 Rials
