Spandidos Publications was founded in 1992 and has developed into a leading publishing group in the biomedical sciences field. We currently publish twelve journals: International Journal of Molecular Medicine, International Journal of Oncology, Molecular Medicine Reports, Oncology Reports, Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine, Oncology Letters, Biomedical Reports, Molecular and Clinical Oncology, World Academy of Sciences Journal, International Journal of Functional Nutrition, Medicine International and International Journal of Epigenetics.
When deciding which journal to submit your paper, you should consider who would be interested in your results. A small number of scientists working in your special field only, or would it be of interest to others working in complementary or parallel fields. Next, evaluate the level of significance of your findings. In this process your colleagues will be of great help, as very few of us are critical enough of our own work. Over-estimation, might cost you many months of frustration and uncertainty. Consider carefully whether there is a need to submit to a so-called prestigious journal, where the disappointment is very likely. Any established journal will forward the Abstracts of all published works to various databases, thus yours will have equal opportunity to be noticed, regardless of the journal in which it is printed. It is of interest to study how long the time period is from publishing to finding the entry in, for example Medline or Science Citation Index; as these are the ‘advertising windows’ frequently used in search of new information. This leads us to the next very important point to establish how long the review and publications process is likely to be. Previous issues will indicate the trend, and this is of major importance, as the process varies greatly from a few weeks to over one year. Thus, before submitting do some research on rapid publication, if you need a reply within a reasonable time period. A strategy for a successful publication shall be considered.
