  • If your article meets the requirements set by the Author Guidelines and a first review by the editor in chief, it will be reviewed by at least two peer reviewers with expertise in this or a related topic. This peer review will result in:
    • acceptance as is
    • acceptance only upon completion of major revisions based on reviewers’ comments
    • outright rejection
    • acceptance with minor changes
  • Rejected articles may be resubmitted for consideration after corrections are made in response to feedback by peer reviewers.
  • Author(s) retain their intellectual property rights governing future use of published materials after one year. If the article is reprinted, "permission granted by MJAOM, etc." must be inserted after the byline. MJAOM retains the right to publish the author’s article in the printed version of the journal and online.
