Why should Medicine authors choose open access?
The effectiveness of mass communication is measured by how generously the information is distributed; by this, I mean the availability of general user access.
The open access journal is a solution in widening the circle of communication without a cost to the readers.
One important addition to the open access journal family is SpringerPlus, my journal, which launched in January 2012. This scientific peer-reviewed journal is a wide medium for various aspects of science and medicine covering all disciplines of science for publication.
We as editors appreciate the effort of scientists, clinicians, and educators for time spent in research and for presentation of their valuable data for sharing with others; we will make every effort to ensure such information is reviewed, presented and shared with the rest of scientific community in a timely fashion.
The journal is indexed by SCIE (ISI Web of Science), PubMed and Scopus and is being tracked for its first Impact Factor, expected in June of next year.
Please join me and the SpringerPlus team in celebrating this valuable group of subject areas by reading our most popular articles in the Medicine Section:
