In parallel to the developments in the digital technologies, the publication and communication media have been revolutionized. Medical publishing, which is the mainstay for the healthcare communication, has been also evolved. Unfortunately, time is over for the publications and research techniques which are unfit for digital technologies. The merit of easy-to-access to information of these technologies has increased the competition among the medical publishers. Let’s say, some publications have hundreds of thousands readers, while some have only a few. Briefly, none of publications which do not use mobile technologies or social media can achieve success in today’s world.
Today, preliminary scientific researches are often conducted via social media. Once the subjects reply the questions via mobile phones, collected data are published in a manuscript and can be read by many readers across the world. All these advancements lead the conventional publishing to lose favor in recent years.
E-journals, which are published electronically with the aim of easy-to-access, have many advantages in today’s medical publishing. These journals powered by mobile technologies offer the readers to access information irrespective of the time and space. Furthermore, they allow the readers to engage into the articles, as opposed to the previous non-active position of the readers.
Currently, it is possible to ascertain how many times the article reads or what kinds of comments have been made. The number of read, like, share, and comments, as well as the content of the comments are a new aspect for scientific manuscripts.
Furthermore, e-journals are not distanced or static. Media tools are also close followers of scientific researches, bringing them into the newscast, even. All these information sometimes make a path for excitement and debate in not only the medical community, but also in the society. Therefore, we should revise the medical publishing.
Within this scope, e-Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine aims to evaluate and publish all manuscripts related to cardiovascular surgery and cardiology, as well as complementary subspecialties in a rapid and effective manner.
The Editorial Board of the journal will assess and publish the manuscripts in accordance with the recent tech-based publishing concept and share with the international health care media. All manuscripts will be shared in an effective social media platform. Outstanding researches will be evaluated in an interactive platform and discussed in online conferences, if required.
In other words, e-Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine is expanding the horizon for its researchers and readers.
