Abstract

Coronavirus infection disease 2019 (COVID-19) does not seem to be available, and hence medical practitioners and governments are vying for any useful information on the treatment and management of this outbreak. Research journals have played their part by promoting research related to COVID-19. However, journals could intervene to reduce the noise created by contrived research by suggested protocols by this letter.

Keywords: COVID-19, Publication noise, Journal
