IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT. Indexing in MEDLINE: Journal of Comorbidity needs your help

By Martin Fortin, Jane Gunn, Stewart W. Mercer, Susan Smith, Marjan van den Akker
At the Journal of Comorbidity, we recognize the importance of publishing high-quality work in a timely manner, and publishing work that can be discovered by the wider community in bibliographic databases. One of the premier databases that many authors and readers turn to is MEDLINE®, the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) database containing over 20 million citations of biomedical literature. Indexing in MEDLINE is therefore key to helping any journal seeking the widest dissemination of their published content.
Although the Journal of Comorbidity is indexed in many databases, it currently does not meet the minimum requirements for MEDLINE indexing. The journal is therefore increasing its efforts to achieve this as soon as possible – but first, we need your help.
In order to be considered for MEDLINE indexing, we have to meet a set of minimum requirements, particularly with regard to the quantity of published articles. And this is where we ask for your help. We are inviting all researchers, clinicians and other healthcare professionals with an interest in comorbidity/multimorbidity to submit their work to the Journal of Comorbidity. (refer to the online author guidelines for preparing your article: http://www.jcomorbidity.com/index.php/test/about/submissions#authorGuidelines). We are currently seeking publications – original research papers, but also critical reviews and study protocols – to meet our target. We believe that indexing in MEDLINE will help to increase our visibility, increase access to our content, and will encourage more authors at all levels of experience and expertise to publish their work in the journal.
With your help, we can make the Journal of Comorbidity grow, and enhance its impact in this niche field and beyond.
We would like to thank all members of our editorial board, reviewers, readers, and our contributors, who together have shaped the journal into its current form and who have provided articles of great interest.
We look forward to a continued collaboration in further developing this journal into an authoritative resource on comorbidity/multimorbidity.
