Editorial and Publishing Standards, Policies and Practices
The Community Eye Health Journal (CEHJ) follows the ‘Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing’ joint statement produced by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) and the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME). The CEHJ also follows the recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals produced by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). The standards, policies and practices outlined here should be read and interpreted in conjunction with the joint statement and ICMJE guidelines.
The CEHJ has an Editorial Committee which advises the Editorial Management Team on the content of the CEHJ and consists of members with relevant expertise and knowledge. This committee proposes and discusses content of the journal as well as helping to maintain quality. The Editorial Committee meets twice a year. Members of this Committee and its Terms of Reference can be found below.
The Editorial Committee meetings are also supported by a number of members of staff at the ICEH including, but limited to, the Editorial Management team.
The CEHJ also has an advisory Strategy Group which provides guidance to the Editorial Management team on the strategic direction and planning of the journal. The Strategy Group is composed of regular, substantial charitable funders to the journal, representatives of other versions of the journal and other individuals or groups with relevant experience or expertise. Members of this Group and its Terms of Reference can be found below.
