Manuscript Submission

IJUH asks authors to only submit unpublished materials and they work to ensure that their manuscript meets the journal’s formal requirements as concerns presentation, formatting, and other accompanying documentation upon submission. In the event that papers do not fulfill these formal requirements, the editorial staff will “unsubmit” the manuscript. Authors will be asked to either upload files as needed or correct/revise the paper accordingly. Peer review will not commence until all requirements have been met. Please submit via the email portal of the submissions link on the home page.

The cover letter should also contain any other information about the manuscript or the authors that might be pertinent for the review process, including the DOI of the paper if it has been posted on a non-commercial preprint server. Please introduce the original nature of your work and address the following questions:

  • What is the hypothesis of the study?
  • How do these findings relate to the present state of the field?
