The copyright of all published materials is owned by the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine. All authors must sign and submit the Transfer of Copyright Agreement when the paper is accepted for publication. The papers will not be published until the copyright transfer is complete.
B. Open Access Policy
CEEM is an open access journal distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/), which permits unrestricted non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited. Thus, when using the tables or figures of CEEM in other journals or books for scholarly and educational purposes, permission from the publisher of CEEM is not necessary. All articles are available on the journal’s website to all users immediately upon publication and at no cost to readers or authors as CEEM is a platinum open access journal.
C. Data Sharing
CEEM encourages data sharing wherever possible, unless this is prevented by ethical, privacy, or confidentiality matters. Authors wishing to do so may deposit their data in a publicly accessible repository and include a link to the digital object identifier (DOI) within the text of the manuscript.
CEEM adheres to the data sharing statement policy in ICMJE Recommendations for Clinical Trials (http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/browse/publishing-and-editorial-issues/clinical- trial-registration.html). Authors may also refer to the editorial, “Data Sharing Statements for Clinical Trials: A Requirement of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors,” in JKMS vol. 32, no. 7:1051-1053 (https://doi.org/10.3346/jkms.2017.32.7.1051).
D. Archiving Policy
CEEM provides the electronic backup and preservation of access to the journal content in the event the journal is no longer published by archiving in PubMed Central (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/journals/3081/) and the National Library of Korea (https://www.nl.go.kr).
E. Preprint Policy
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. CEEM allows authors to submit preprints to the journal. It is not treated as duplicate submission or duplicate publication. CEEM recommends that authors disclose the existence of a preprint with its DOI in the letter to the editor during the submission process. Otherwise, a plagiarism check program may flag the results as containing excessive duplication. A preprint submission will be processed through the same peer review process as a usual submission. If a preprint is accepted for publication, the authors are recommended to update the information on the preprint site with a link to the published article in CEEM, including the DOI at CEEM. It is strongly recommended that authors cite the article in CEEM instead of the preprint in their next submission to journals.
F. Article Sharing
Authors can share their submitted/accepted/publisher version (PDF) for any non-commercial uses.
