4. Peer-review policy of HCCR portal:

Peer-review by HCCR portal is used to assess the quality of a manuscript before it is accepted thus increasing its transparency. Independent researchers in the relevant research area assess these submitted manuscripts in the HCCR portal for originality and validity of the accepted case. Previous versions of the manuscript submitted and all author responses to the reviewers are available by
contacting info@hccrportal.com. The peer reviewers and Editors are fully accountable for the decisions made, bias is reduced as reviewer reports are named, accepted reports can serve an educational purpose in helping facilitate training and research into peer review, and reviewers can get credit for their work.

Submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by two or more experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for acceptance. The reviewers will reach a decision based on these reports and, only then the case report will be accepted and displayed on the HCCR portal.

5. Submission of a manuscript to HCCR portal implies that the homoeopathic practitioner has read and agreed to its content and that the manuscript conforms to the portal’s policies.

6. Image and figures policy of the HCCR portal:

Photographs, video, or audio recordings that can reveal the identity of patients or study participants can only be included if they (or their next of kin if participants are deceased; parents or guardians if they are underage or considered to be vulnerable) have provided Consent to Publish. The author should be aware of any cultural sensitivities or restrictions associated with any images included in their manuscripts. Where images have been modified or enhanced in any way this must be stated with a full explanation within the manuscript as well as in the figure legend so as not to mislead readers about what the images show. Authors should be prepared to share the original, uncropped, unannotated and unprocessed images with HCCR portal editorial team upon request. Please note that
any modifications are only acceptable if these are minor in nature and have been applied to the whole image. Any modifications which can alter the scientific interpretation of the image are not allowed. HCCR portal will deal with cases of suspected manipulation according to COPE guidelines. Authors are reminded that enhancing an image for aesthetic reasons can obscure, eliminate or misrepresent the real data and can be perceived as an act of research misconduct. Author should be aware that software filters used to improve image quality are not generally intended for use on biological or medical images. If software filters are used it is advised this is noted either in the figure legend or the methods section of the article.
