How to publish in International Conference on Family Planning

Submit your Research
Posters and slides
Posters and slides are published immediately on submission; they are fully citable and are assigned a permanent DOI after an editorial check. These content types are not peer reviewed.
Please see the Posters and Slides Guidelines for more details.
Articles are published rapidly as soon as they are accepted, after passing a series of prepublication checks to assess originality, readability, author eligibility, and compliance with Gates Open Research’s policies and ethical guidelines. Peer review by invited experts, suggested by the authors, takes place openly after publication. An article remains published regardless of the reviewers’ reports. Articles that pass peer review are indexed in Scopus, PubMed, Google Scholar and other bibliographic databases.
Authors are encouraged to respond openly to the peer review reports, which are published with the article, and can publish revised versions of their article, if they wish. Read more about Gates Open Research’s peer review model.
See the Article Guidelines for information about submitting different article types. Track your submissions via My Account.
Before you submit an article, please ensure that:
  1. The work is original. The manuscript (or substantial parts of it) must not have been published previously, or be under consideration or review by another journal. Manuscripts that were previously posted on a preprint server such as ArXiv or BioRxiv are welcome.
  2. At least one author must be formally affiliated with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (for details, see our Publication criteria). On submission authors will be asked for the grant number *OPPID that funded the research.
  3. The reported study meets all applicable research and publication standards. We strongly recommend that you consult our editorial policies for more detail on reporting guidelines and ethical requirements.
  4. All methodological details and relevant data are made available to allow others to replicate the study, and that the manuscript adheres to appropriate reporting guidelines and community standards. For more detail, please see our policies and Data preparation guidelines.
  5. All authors have understood Gates Open Research’s policies for article publication and its author-led publishing model, which requires authors to actively suggest suitable peer reviewers for their article until at least 2 reports have been received.
  6. Your manuscript includes full author and affiliation information, and a conflict of interest statement.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is a member organization of ORCID and supports the use of ORCID iDs where possible. For this reason, it is mandatory that the submitting author completes their submission using an ORCID iD. The process of getting an ORCID iD is quick, easy and incurs no cost. This can be set up during the article submission process, or via your details section on the My pages at any time. Additionally, co-authors are given the opportunity to connect their ORCID iDs via a link we send on the publication of the article.
What is ORCID?
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. It provides a persistent identifier for humans, similar to that created for content-related entities on digital networks by digital object identifiers (DOIs).
Why is ORCID good for you?
  1. ORCID allows identification beyond names. Globally, names can be very common, they can change, they can be transliterated into other alphabets and so reliably linking researchers with their research and organizations can be difficult - this is solved through a unique ORCID iD.
  2. An ORCID iD also allows you to keep a constantly updated digital curriculum vitae. Individuals decide to register, which research activities to connect to their ID, which organizations to allow access, what information to make publicly available, what to share with trusted parties, and what to keep private. Individuals can control their profiles and can change these settings and permissions at any time.
What happens after you connect your iD to Gates Open Research
Once you have connected your ORCID iD to Gates Open Research and given the necessary permissions, all work that is published with you named as an author, whether an article or a peer review report, will automatically be added to your ORCID account, removing the need for you to do this each time. In addition, wherever your name appears as an author or reviewer, we will link out to your ORCID account via an ORCID badge and your iD number, ensuring maximum exposure of all your research activities to other users of the platform (or those you choose to make public).
How we integrate with ORCID
Gates Open Research complies with ORCID’s integration and engagement program, Collect & Connect:
  • we collect and store authenticated ORCID iDs for authors and reviewers
  • we publicly display the iDs with the iD icon for those authors and reviewers, linked to their ORCID account
  • we connect to the user's ORCID record and update it with new published works
