Editorial policies
A preprint can be defined as a version of a scholarly paper that precedes formal peer review and publication in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal. Diabetes & Metabolism Journal (dmj) allows authors to submit the preprint to the journal. It is not treated as duplicate submission or duplicate publication. dmj recommends authors disclose it with DOI in the letter to the editor during the submission process. Otherwise, it may be screened from the plagiarism check program—Similarity Check (Crossref) or Copy Killer. Preprint submission will be processed through the same peer-review process as a usual submission. If the preprint is accepted for publication, authors are recommended to update the info at the preprint with a link to the published article in dmj, including DOI at dmj. It is strongly recommended that authors cite the article in dmj instead of the preprint in their next submission to journals.
