Can I translate/reprint the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals (URMs)?
The ICMJE welcomes organizations to reprint/translate the URMs into languages other than English for non-profit purposes. However, the ICMJE does not have the resources to translate, to back translate, or to review or approve reprinted/translated versions of the document. Thus, any reprints/translations should prominently include the following statement:
"This is a (insert language name) language translation/reprint of the ICMJE Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals. (insert name of organization) prepared this reprint/translation with support from (insert name of funding source, if any). The ICMJE has not endorsed nor approved the contents of this reprint/translation. The official version of the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals is located at www.ICMJE.org. Users should cite this official version when citing the document.”
The ICMJE asks that anyone who reprints/translates the Uniform Requirements notify the ICMJE of that reprint/translation by sending an e-mail to the ICMJE secretariat office: email@example.com
