First, authors must prepare their articles according to the appropriate international publication recommendations, including the STROBE Statement, CONSORT 2010 Statement, PRISMA 2009 Checklist, and CARE Checklist – 2016: Information for writing a case report.
Second, articles published in the WJCID must undergo rigorous cross-international peer review, where peer reviewers and authors come from different countries and independent peer reviewers are chosen by the editorial office, not by authors, to ensure the fairness of peer review.
Third, designation of co-first authors or co-corresponding authors is not permitted.
Fourth, the WJCID accepts a manuscript based mainly on its novelty, innovativeness, data accuracy, picture reliability, clear language expression, and ethical requirements. Of note, peer reviewers will complete the peer review within 7 days, providing a comprehensive evaluation of the scientific and linguistic quality of the manuscript.
Fifth, BPG adopts a 7-day publishing management policy. This means that each step of the publishing process, including manuscript preview, peer review, manuscript revision by authors, final acceptance, language editing, and production and release, must be completed within 7 days.
Finally, the peer review report, author’s response to the
peer review report, biostatistics review certificate, copyright license

ORCID numbers, funding information, language editing certificate, and other
