Notes for Authors
Contributors submitting their work to Sanitas Magisterium should be informed that articles should include the following:
- Quantitative, qualitative, or mixed research methods,
- Comprehensive literature reviews, meta-analysis, or meta-synthesis,
- Model proposals, clinical experimental research model, or original writings of similar quality.
Sanitas Magisterium gives priority to current studies using advanced research and statistical methods and techniques. The Journal’s main criteria for publication are original contribution to the field and competency in methodology.
Manuscripts are first assessed by the Editorial Board for purpose, topic, content, presentation style, and mechanics of writing. During this preliminary assessment, the Editorial Board guidelines are as follows:
For Quantitative Research
- Quantitative research based on a single variable or that mainly analyses frequency, percentage, difference, and correlational statistics is usually assessed in a preliminary assessment according to its contents. Quantitative research including multiple regressions, path and cluster analysis, or other advanced research and statistical methods is given priority.
For Studies Developing a Measurement Tool
- The authenticity, scope, quality of the group worked on, and efficiency of the reliability and validity of studies are taken into consideration to decide whether the measurement tool can be published independently.
- The Editorial Board encourages contributors to send their manuscripts if the developed measurement tool is used in a study in which the findings are reported.
For Experimental Research
- Findings must be supported, detailed, and further elaborated on with qualitative data.
For Qualitative Research
- The reliability and validity studies and in-depth analysis of the data is of utmost importance.
For Descriptive Studies
- The journal aims to publish analytical studies identifying and proposing solutions to the key issues related to health education and administration. However, such studies should not resemble a book chapter based only on a literature review.
Mixed Research Designs
- Such studies have a higher likelihood of being published. Mixed research design studies should justify why and how the author adopted the research design used. Qualitative and quantitative sections are analyzed separately and are expected to meet the criterion described above.
- The editors emphasize that Sanitas Magisterium articles should not include studies based on very frequently used measurement tools or on research topics that have been overly examined, unless they propose an innovative approach to the topic in question.
- Manuscripts based on thesis-related research should include all data used in the thesis. Sanitas Magisterium does not publish any article including unethical practices such as sliding.
- Sanitas Magisterium believes that the data collection process for original research should have been done in the last 5 years.
Authors of manuscripts that do not meet the general publication criteria or the criteria specified above will be notified of the decision along with the reasons for it and will not proceed to the referee review process.
- Authors bear responsibility for the content of their published articles.
- Authors are assumed to have conformed to an ethical code of conduct during research. Ethical problems that may arise after publication are binding for authors only.
- Sanitas Magisterium is not responsible for the content and opinions expressed in the published articles and these do not necessarily reflect the opinions of EDAM, being the author entirely responsible for the scientific content in the paper. The publisher/editor of Sanitas Magisterium is not responsible for errors in the contents or any consequences arising from the use of information contained in it. The opinions expressed in the research papers/articles in this journal do not necessarily represent the views of the publisher/editor of the journal.
