Open Access Journals And Healthcare Information: Indexing And Archiving

Press Release | OMICS Group International | August 30, 2013

Strive for the best sources for indexing and archiving medical research.

HENDERSON, NV, August 30, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The main function of peer reviewed open access publishing platforms is to powerfully present the content online, making it available to all, and link this information with useful scientific data. The purpose is to increase public interest and make them available at one's disposal. The emergence and expansion of low quality/toll access indexing and archiving services has raised the active interest of open access publishers in the context of searching for the best service to index their resources and information.

The editorial team of OMICS Group Scholalry Journals, consisting of professors, researchers and the institutional heads, recommended a selective list of OMICS Group journals to be indexed in quality databases. The list of recommendations for indexing journals in PubMed Central is available online.

OMICS Group International founded by Dr. Gedela S. Babu, an 'Open Access Publisher', publishes around 300 peer reviewed journals in different fields of medical, pharmaceutical, clinical and life sciences. With the help of 25,000 qualified and strong editorial systems, OMICS Journals strictly adhere to the standards of scholarly publishing. Pleased with the quality of articles published in a set of OMICS Group journals, the editorial team recommended the journals to be indexed in different free access healthcare databases.

Out of more than 25,000 medical journals only 6000 journals have been indexing (abstracts only) in the Medline database. PubMed Central (PMC) gain popularity from 2008, is a free digital database which serves as a platform for presenting the free access to full length healthcare research. However, PMC has never been out of controversy regarding the discrimination and its co-operation with eLife. Some recent disclosures concerning PMC eLife controversy suggest that how it has supported the launch of eLife and skipped its application and review processing for inclusion in databases of PubMed and PubMed Central, which is otherwise conflicting their ways of conduct and review process. These revelations have raised questions and eyes in the interests of PMC.

Simple and easily accessible Google Scholar is the finest and foremost trusted indexing platform? Few more quality and specific open access medical research indexing platforms are required to handle and disseminate the knowledge.
