Key Criteria for Publication

Four criteria are necessary for a recommendation of acceptance for publication.

  • NOVELTY, is it new science or a new approach to established science?
  • QUALITY, is the technical content accurate and well written?
  • APPROPRIATENESS, is the manuscript complete in and of itself, and within the scope of TMI?
  • IMPACT, will the work reported have a significant impact on the field or does it describe an incremental step?
