Dear authors of the journal!

Since January 1, 2021, scientific articles are sent to the editorial office of the journal "Medical Education and Professional Development" in electronic form ONLY through an online form available on the journal's website - SEND AN ARTICLE.

Articles received by e-mail to the editorial office will not be considered. Thank you for understanding!

Each author of our journal must register on the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) website - an open index system for scientists and researchers (registration is free).

Instead of filling in personal data in countless electronic forms related to publishing articles or receiving grants, the researcher can simply enter his ORCID number - various fields will be filled in automatically using data from databases of articles, citations, grants and contact information.

ORCID helps to distinguish authors with the same name.

ORCID solves the problem of different spelling of authors' names - your data can always be clarified on ORCID, thus your personal citation index increases.
