After medical officers forward us the material, we seek the help of the Senior Medical Editor in reviewing it. In this regard, the Senior Medical Editor may give his valuable comment in making the content reader-friendly. In that case, we ask our physicians to revise it according to the comments. The management at achawaqat.com is responsible for the management of the workflow. So, in the end, the medically sound and reader-friendly articles make it to the achawaqat.com.

Stage I | Development of the Content

This is the first step in the editorial process. In this step, we ask our medical writers, senior medical editors, and medical illustrators to develop the content. If they are using any previously published material then we ask for different types of additions or required deletions. Our competent medical illustrators often help in converting the textual knowledge into image form. After all these steps are fulfilled, we initiate the second stage of the editorial process.

Stage II | Reviewing of the Content by MRB

We have linage with the Medical Review Board (MRB). MRB comprises medical experts. We send the final articles, blogs, news, alerts, etc to these members. These members check the material for medical facts. They enter their comments in the online working editorial system. If they suggest accepting the content, we start stage three, otherwise, we go for the corrections as they suggested. In this case, there can be four chances. Members of MRB can either do any of the four actions. They are

  • Direct acceptance
  •  Minor revisions
  • Major revisions
  • Reject and resubmit option
  • Complete rejection

Stage III | Reviewing of the Content by Editorial Team

After clearance of stage two, we switch to stage three. The editorial team at achawaqat.com check the content. In this regard, there is a fast check and updating of the references. We have given this responsibility to the senior medical editors and our medical writers. The content checking is done for consistency, grammatical errors, and style.

Stage IV | Producing of the Content

After clearing the previous stages, the content is ready to enter the production stage. At this stage, we do the feeding of the content in the editorial management system. Also, we do coding, tagging and presentation related tasks. We do a quality check for technical and quality aspects in this stage also.

Stage V | Publication of the Content

In the final step of the editorial procedure, we hand over the content to WordPress experts. They set the content as required and publish it on achawaqat.com.

So, now you can understand, how much effort is exerted behind every blog, article, description, news, alert etc that you see on achawaqat.com.

The Policy of the Simple Language

Well, if you are a medical practitioner or a PhD in the field of medicine then you may understand the technical language. Rather, you must have authored the books and research items too. However, we at achawaqat.com are aiming to use the simple language possible. This is because our audience is not just experts and PhDs but there are readers from undergraduate levels. In fact, we aim for making this material understandable by lay readers. That is why you see all the content very easier and visually pleasing. However, with this, we never compromise the quality of the material.
