The International Journal of MCH and AIDS (IJMA), one of the two scholarly journals published by GHEP, has been accepted for indexing in PubMed and PubMed Central, two prestigious journal indexing and abstracting services and databases of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
This means that the full text of all articles published in IJMA will become available on PMC and PubMed effective immediately. For authors this means greater discoverability, potentially increased readership and citations in the field of research.
With its acceptance, IJMA joins the league of other prestigious global health journals who use the PubMed and PMC platforms to disseminate their work to millions of readers around the world who rely on the integrity of NLM and NIH who curate these indexing services following intense scrutiny and pre-acceptance technical and academic reviews.
Dr. Romuladus Azuine, IJMA Editor-in-Chief, said that he was excited about the tremendous visibility that the PubMed and PMC indexing would bestow upon the journal, adding that he looks forward to pushing forward in his efforts to distinguish the journal and its acceptability to the wider research community.
“Our indexing in these two services also sets the stage for the next phase of the journal’s development in the dissemination of pioneering work in the field of MCH and AIDS, as well as global health,” Dr. Azuine said while reacting to the news in Washington, DC, USA.
GHEP’s second scholarly journal, the International Journal of Translational Medical Research and Public Health (IJTMRPH) is currently reviewing manuscripts for its first volume set to publish in mid-to late Fall 2016. Readers can read more about the journals by clicking on IJMA and on IJTMRPH.
PubMed Central® (PMC) is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM)sections are noted with plus and minus signs so that you can add and subtract content blocks.
In keeping with NLM’s legislative mandate to collect and preserve the biomedical literature, PMC serves as a digital counterpart to NLM’s extensive print journal collection. Launched in February 2000, PMC was developed and is managed by NLM’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Readers can learn more by clicking on the PMC link.
PubMed comprises more than 26 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites sections are noted with plus and minus signs so that you can add and subtract content blocks.
PubMed also provides access to additional relevant web sites and links to the other NCBI molecular biology resources. PubMed is a free resource that is developed and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
