The Publications Committee will be able to make a decision on a manuscript when at least three peer reviews have been submitted.  The peer review process may take as long as 3 to 12 months for completion.  The Publications Committee updates all authors on a monthly basis, as peer reviewers are reminded to review as often as every two weeks.

The West Virginia Medical Journal is printed quarterly in March, June, September and December. An online version of each edition is sent via email to members and posted to the Member-Only portion of the WVSMA website.
