Rapid Publication

We believe that publication of all clinical trials should be expedited so that authors work can be read worldwide without any delay. Typical time from submission to online publication is 4-6 weeks. We publish fast, but can also be flexible to your timelines. Please see the journal websites for details on how we can help you achieve your publication goals. Our rapid publication and personalized service is funded by article processing charges (please see details on the journal websites and instructions to authors).

Open access options

Open access is becoming increasingly important and it complements the need to be more transparent in the publication of clinical trial data. All our journals are either fully open access or have an open access option.

Enhanced features

On speaking to our authors, we realized that many had supplementary article material with nowhere to publish it. Every article is published with a summary slide, for an easy-to-digest article synopsis. We also publish peer-reviewed slide decks, videos, animations, and interactive learning resources. You can submit your enhanced features with your article, or we can work with you to create appropriate enhanced features to complement your article data. All enhanced features undergo the same peer review process as the article, to ensure they remain an accurate scientific representation of the manuscript data. All sponsorship and disclosures are cited within the enhanced feature, to ensure complete transparency and adherence to good publishing practices.

Return on investment

It is important to know that the time invested in creating your article does not go to waste, and we will provide data to assure you of this in the form of metrics on journal and article usage, citations, and social media outcomes. Article-level marketing raises awareness of your article pre- and post-publication.

Personalized author care

We understand how frustrating poor communication channels can be between authors and the journals, and because of this we provide personalized in-house production processes. All articles are assigned a personal contact from submission through to post-publication to ensure that peer review, editing, and production runs smoothly and quickly. This means you never need to wonder what stage your article is at – we keep you updated throughout, or you can simply call or email us for status updates. We can also submit manuscripts, help style your paper, and request permissions on your behalf.

High visibility

We have thought about alternative ways we can present your data to increase readership and understanding, and to encourage a broader audience. Alongside your peer-reviewed article we have created features that provide a quick overview for physicians, and a simple summary for patients.

Forward thinking

With the increasing investment being made in electronic tools and iPads, we feel there are plenty of new and exciting opportunities available to explore to present data supporting peer-reviewed articles in innovative ways.

Several members of our team are CMPP qualified and we are committed to providing integrity, excellence, and transparency in all our publications. We have clear editorial policies that comply with medical publication standards of best practice.
