International Journal of Surgery opens archive of journal content

September 17, 2014

Oxford, UK, September 17, 2014 - The International Journal of Surgery (IJS) has announced that it has opened up its archive of previously published content: after 24 months published journal issues become available for all to read. A key aim of the IJS is to improve surgical knowledge and patient care and it is hoped that by making these articles available to all will improve efforts to achieve this.

Professor David Rosin, Editor-in-Chief of IJS said, "The journal has always been a great place for authors to publish and disseminate their research, but we believe that this new publication policy will give authors an even wider distribution of their research."

The Managing and Executive Editor of the Journal, Riaz Agha, said, "Opening up our archive means we will release a decade of content- over 1,000 articles- immediately to the world. This is a fantastic opportunity to boost exposure globally for our authors, to spread peer-reviewed knowledge and enhance patient care."

The articles are available through ScienceDirect: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/17439191.
