American Journal of Advances in Medical Science

Publication process

Publication model and process

At present, we are following a traditional editorial workflow in which all the submitted articles are processed in accordance with journals publication process and accepted articles are collated into archival issues. From Vol-2: No-3: 2014 on wards we are moving to Continuous Publication model

What is Continuous Publication model ?

In Continuous Publication model, the articles accepted for publication are published in their final form as soon as they are ready instead of waiting for complete issues.

Why are we switching to Continuous Publication model ?

American Journal of Advances in Medical Science is an online open access journal and hence the editorial team feels there is no need to wait for the issue building because unlike print, we don't need to gather articles together until a time when they can all be published at once.

What are the advantages of Continuous Publication model ?

We moved to Continuous Publication model to minimize the (often long) delay between First-on-Online  and issue publication. Continuous Publication model ensures faster publication of articles for authors, fast accessibility of accepted articles for readers, researchers will have full citation details available to them immediately as soon as their articles are accepted for publication and each day there is new content on journal website.

Our journal website will now be updated regularly with the latest articles and we will continue to collate published articles into archival "issues" (4 issues per year) regularly.
