Dear WIP Member,
As we move forward toward the migration of PAIN Practice to a digital-first publication in 2017, we wanted to share some details on new exciting initiatives available for readers, authors, and reviewers of the journal.
As of September of this year, PAIN Practice has adopted an Accepted Article workflow whereby articles will be posted online shortly after their acceptance for publication in the journal. This initiative will allow authors and readers to stay up-to-date with the latest content as soon as it is available and will reduce time to publication in the journal by six weeks or more. Accepted articles are fully citable and discoverable in PubMed upon their initial publication. Please view the first batch of Accepted Articles here.
In order to stay on top of the publication output for PAIN Practice we encourage everyone to sign up to receive regular content alerts. You can choose to be alerted via email whenever a new issue is published and you can easily add Early View and Accepted Article alerts so you’re alerted as soon as articles appear online. Instructions on how to sign up for e-alerts for PAIN Practice are available by clicking here.
PAIN Practice has also recently adopted Publons as a way for peer reviewers to get recognition for their contributions (without breaking reviewer anonymity) in a format they can include in promotion and funding applications. Instructions on how to receive this recognition are included via email once a review has been completed. More information on Publons can be found here.
For those members who wish to retain a print subscription to the journal, these will be available via Sheridan Press’ Print-on-Demand service. The cost will be equivalent to a regular annual online-only subscription. Members will be able to set up their subscriptions shortly and more information will be provided soon.
