(Toronto, Feb 4th, 2016) We are pleased to report that JMIR Human Factors (JHF) has been accepted for indexing in PubMed Central and PubMed. The staff at PubMed Central is currently finalizing the setup and we expect all articles published since Vol 1 / Iss 1 to be in PubMed Central and PubMed within the next couple of weeks. The acceptance is the result of a rigorous scientific and technical evaluation by the US National Library of Medicine's (NLM’s) Library Operations Division, which decided that the scientific and editorial character and quality of a JMIR Human Factors merits its inclusion in PMC. In making this decision NLM has considered the suitability of the journal for the NLM collection as well as the opinions of expert consultants.
JMIR Human Factors is the 9th journal of JMIR Publications accepted for PMC/Pubmed. Other titles already in PMC/Pubmed include the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR), interactive Journal of Medical Research (i-JMR), JMIR Research Protocols, JMIR mHealth and uHealth, JMIR Medical Informatics, JMIR Serious Games, JMIR Mental Health and Medicine 2.0. In addition, JMIR Medical Education as well as JMIR Public Health and Surveillance are currently under evaluation, and applications for other serials from the JMIR Publications family of journals such as JMIR Cancer and JMIR Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies are currently being prepared.
We are currently seeking academic leaders in this field to apply as section editors for Editorial Board positions including the Editor-in-Chief. There will be remuneration in form of a credit system, rewarding actions such as taking on papers as submission editor. EB members will also be able to use a small discount for their own papers, or papers they invite from other authors.
Prequisites include a scholary track-record, demonstrated by being a first author on peer-reviewed publications and having served as peer-reviewer (preferably this should include JMIR journals. Applicants without peer-review record for JMIR can self-assign themselves to papers to be peer-reviewed at JMIR Preprints).
