Background World Journal of Meta-Analysis (WJMA, World J Meta-Anal) is a high-quality, online, open-access, single-blind peer-reviewed journal published by the Baishideng Publishing Group (BPG). WJMA accepts both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts. Articles published in WJMA are high-quality meta-analysis and systematic review articles by established academic authors as well as new researchers. The paramount objective of WJMA is to showcase and promote distinguished research in the fields of clinical medicine, to help advance development of this field. The types of articles published in WJMA include Editorial, Minireview, Review, Meta-analysis, Meta-regression, Systematic review, and Evidence-based medicine. 
Aim The primary aim of WJMA is to provide scholars and readers from various fields of clinical medicine with a platform to publish high-quality meta-analysis and systematic review articles and communicate their research findings online. In order to ensure the quality, timeliness, fairness, and transparency of publication, WJMA has implemented a variety of measures as follows:
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 WJMA must undergo rigorous cross-international peer review. WJMA peer reviewers come from different countries, chosen independently by artificial intelligence technique or our editorial office, and not by the authors, to ensure fairness and integrity of the peer review.
Third, designation of co-first authors and/or co-corresponding authors is not permitted.
Fourth, WJMA accepts a manuscript for publication based on its novelty, innovativeness, data accuracy, image reliability, clear language expression, and ethical requirements.
Of note, peer reviewers are advised to complete their 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 agreement, institutional ethics committee approval document, informed consent document(s), conflict-of-interest statement, CrossCheck detection report, authors’ personal ORCID numbers, funding information, language editing certificate, and other relevant documents will be published online along with the article to allow for an open and transparent publishing process.
