Now, you can publish your articles at a comparatively faster rate with CIBNP’s channel with the Cureus Journal.

CIBNP and The Cureus Journal of Medical Science are now working together to make research publications hassle-free.

Through CIBNP’s channel at the Cureus, you can now publish your research papers for faster peer-reviewed publications in PubMed, PubMed Central, and Web of Science.

Limited rapid publication slots are available for the channel and will be filled on a first come first serve basis.

Each channel article requires payment at CIBNP’s website only. CIBNP students will not have to pay on Cureus’s website for the channel articles as all the articles that go through this channel are paid by CIBNP to Cureus later. The articles going through the channel will be provided with BASIC editing services by CIBNP (Basic grammar check, Basic spell check, and plagiarism % check). This BASIC REVIEW of the article is included in the channel fee that you pay at CIBNP. The articles that are not paid for at CIBNP, submitted via the channel will be deferred by CIBNP’s editor via channel until the payment is received at CIBNP.

All Students must agree to the CIBNP channel’s policy and procedure before purchasing any article slot. The rules for submitting an article on the channel are as per the following:


Please, read the following bullet points carefully before you proceed to buy the channel slot for your article.

Rules for publishing through the California Institute of Behavioral Neurosciences and Psychology’s Academic Channel.

o The cost is always per-article, and this cost will be told to you during the enrollment process for your TWO-MONTH TRAINING PROGRAM at CIBNP.

o Each student (and co-authors) submitting the article is required to create an account over the Cureus Journal’s website and submit the article on the Cureus Psychology (CiBNP’s) Channel on the website. CiBNP is not responsible for submitting any student’s article on his/her behalf

o Submitting author is required to follow the AUTHOR’S GUIDE that is available on the Cureus’s website and must follow all the instructions for each section of the article before submitting any manuscript. If the article does not follow these guidelines, the article will be deferred.

o The total number of authors for a Case Report and Editorial should not exceed more than five authors. However, a review article going through the channel can exceed the limit of five authors. Also for the original articles, the number of authors can exceed more than five authors per article.

o All the authors, including the first author and co-authors of any article, publishing through CiBNP’s channel should be enrolled students at CiBNP’s “BE A PUBLISHED AUTHOR, TWO-MONTH PROGRAM”. No other colleagues, co-workers, teachers, assistants will be allowed to publish through CiBNP channel. One exception would be if the author is a previously published author in the channel, and for the second or third article wants to add the colleagues from outside the CiBNP, this author is permitted to add others. However, if it is your first article via the channel then you must follow the instructions mentioned above.

o To submit your article via the CiBNP-Cureus Channel, the first author should be a current or past enrolled student at CiBNP.

o Any article not started and ended with CiBNP (any previously written articles without CiBNP’s supervision and guidelines) will not qualify for publication through the CiBNP’s Channel at Cureus even if the student intends to pay the full amount required by the channel.

o The submitting author must provide at least five different reviewers for peer-reviewing the article.. CiBNP is not responsible for providing reviewers for the articles.

o Authors submitting through CiBNP’s channel should only mention “California Institute of Behavioral Neurosciences and Psychology’ as their academic affiliation on their research. Any other affiliations found will result in a deferred article.

o ZERO TOLERANCE FOR PLAGIARISM! If the article is found to be plagiarized to any extent, CiBNP holds the right to ban the student from the Institute and to confiscate the channel fee.

o If there are any technical glitches/issues with the Cureus website, and your published article is temporarily unavailable on the website, CiBNP cannot intervene in a third-party website as Cureus is a separate entity.

o Each article that goes through this channel will be scrutinized through a robust process and is not guaranteed to be published if the quality does not meet the standards.

o Any scientific fraud, including but not limited to plagiarism, false data provision, any falsification, fabrication, violation of the HIPAA compliance, Photo/Figure manipulation, Ghostwriting, Self-Plagiarism will result in an automatic permanent ban from the Institute with no refunds offered.

o Co-authorship sequence should be decided before submission of the article. Once the article is submitted, you’ll lose the option to edit the authors.


o For the selection of Reviewers the student cannot invite the Editor-In-Chief of Cureus Medical Journal.

o The Program Director of Research at the California Institute Of Behavioral Neurosciences and Psychology Dr. Hassaan Tohid and Dr. Syeda Sidra Hasnain should not be added as the reviewers.

o If the authors don’t have the list of reviewers, they should contact CiBNP for further guidance.


Question 1:

I wrote an article during my two-month research training program: however, I cannot afford the Channel fee per article, can I bypass the channel and publish the article in the Cureus medical journal as a non-channel article?

• Any article that a student wrote with the CiBNP during the two-month training program, cannot be published in the Cureus journal without going through the CiBNP-Cureus channel. If the article is your independent article written as a second or third article after the training was completed with colleagues outside the CiBNP, then you have the option to either go with the channel (avail CiBNP’s help) or go without the channel (independent of CiBNP’s help)

Question 2:

I am an ex-student and I have written a new article on my own and now want to publish in Cureus on my own without the channel. Can I do that? Or I must still choose the Channel?

• All the future articles that you write afterward can be published without the channel because they are the students’ independent articles. However, the graduated students are most welcome to submit their future articles via the channel if they want the step-by-step guidance for deferrals through CiBNP’s team

Question 3:

If I write an article and submit to the journal without going through the channel, what are the consequences?

• Cureus and CiBNP are working together to help the students becoming published authors, therefore, the Cureus journal knows which article was written under the CiBNP affiliation. Therefore, any student deliberately trying to bypass the channel could be permanently banned by both organizations. This means the student cannot publish in Cureus ever and you cannot join any other CiBNP course in the future. and the certificate for the two-month training will be confiscated
