Dear authors,

As the Editor in Chief of the Cyprus Journal of Medical Sciences, while we greet the new year I would like to inform you about our journal’s new policy on clinical trials.

Being a journal that follows the ICMJE recommendations, we aim to keep up with the developments both in science and scientific publishing. As a result, as of 2020 clinical trial studies are required to be registered in a publicly accessible registry to be evaluated for publication in the Cyprus Journal of Medical Sciences.

Clinical trial policy will be valid for the articles submitted from 1 February 2020.

For the guideline of the journal, you may visit https://cyprusjmedsci.com/en/instructions-to-authors-109.We sincerely thank you for your valuable contributions to Cyprus Journal of Medical Sciences.

Best regards,

Sonuç Büyük
Editor in Chief
