Hypothesis is an open access peer-reviewed journal. Our Editorial Team is comprised of volunteers from the Medical Library Association and other Professional Associations. We are excited to work with new, up-and-coming, and established Health Science researchers.

We currently publish one issue in August each year, but we plan to publish a second issue in the future. We offer four peer reviewed and three editorial reviewed submission categories.

Author(s) are asked to use the Vancouver citation style and to use superscripts for all in-text citations.

If you have ideas about who should submit to Hypothesis or a topic that Hypothesis should feature in a future issue, consider emailing hypothesisj@protonmail.com.

August Issue Submission deadlines

Peer Reviewed submissions should be uploaded to the website no later than 01 May and Editorial Reviewed submissions should be uploaed to the website no later than 01 June. 

We ask authors to contact the Editorial Team at any time with questions.

Submission-to-Production Timeline:

From submission-to-notification, the Peer Review process takes between 4-8 weeks. Please adhere to the Author Guidelines and Submission Preparation Checklist to ensure timely review of your submission.

Once the author completes the requested revisions, the submission moves to copy editing. Copy editing takes about 2-4 weeks. Author(s) will receive a Copy editing proof and they are asked to review and to submit changes within 2 weeks time.

Finally, the Galley is created and sent to authors, who get one week to review and to make changes.
