4 EJHG – Key Facts Approximately 800 submissions received each year More than 50,000 full-text papers downloaded each month Table of Contents alert is sent to 99,000 registrants International readership = 36% of subscribers are North American with 44% European

5 To which journal should you send your manuscript? Questions to ask Is your paper within the scope of the journal? Does the journal reach an appropriate audience? What is the quality of other papers published? How easy is electronic submission? How quickly will you receive a decision? How quickly will your paper be published?

6 How much should you worry about journal impact factors? IFs are important and currently is the only way to rank journals in terms of quality that is accepted by all (EJHG 2009 = 3.564) As well as impact, it is equally important to think about the reach of the journal promotion of your article post publication the service delivered to you as an author by the Publisher

7 Open Access At acceptance stage you can also choose to pay a one off article processing charge to have your final published version available open access immediately upon publication and have it deposited into PubMed Central Fee varies from journal to journal and depend on rejection rate and subject area Original research only Already compliant with major funding agencies Choose one of two creative commons licences

8 The production process Accepted manuscripts are passed to the production department A production editor will ensure paper meets the journals house style: Check punctuation, grammar, and consistency of terminology Check any names and abbreviations Check references Figures and tables are formatted and the manuscript is typeset Reasons for delays to starting work on a paper: Artwork in wrong format Colour costs arent properly settled. Licence To Publish form not complete (NB YOU retain the copyright of the text, the Publisher that of the layout!) Page proofs are ed to the corresponding author within 5 weeks of acceptance – corrections to a pdf version

Your paper is recorded in any relevant databases with which we have agreements as soon as it is published online, ensuring more people see your article over a longer amount of time The print version of your paper ideally will appear around 3-4 months after acceptance
