The Editorial and Production teams of JMIR Publications are piloting a project for a select group of manuscripts, to ensure that they are processed and published quickly and efficiently, adhering to the fast turnaround times required in scientific publishing. To this effect, authors will be contacted immediately after acceptance via email and be requested to provide essential items for publication and resolve crucial issues in paper, so that our editorial and style policies are met.
This pre-production step will be undertaken by our acting Pre-Production Coordinator, who will be the point of contact for the authors as well as guide and assist authors with all the necessary items required in this process.
Please note that the paper will not enter Production until all these items have been provided. Therefore, it is up to the authors to provide these items in a timely manner. Once the paper and all its accompanying documentation is complete, we will send the manuscript forward to begin the Production process (starting with Copyediting).
As a gesture of gratitude, we are offering to submit the accepted version of your manuscript to PubMed straightaway, via our PubMed Now! option, for free. For more information, please see our Knowledge Base article link below. The Pre-Production Coordinator will be in touch with you regarding this, and you will be able to confirm with them if you would like to proceed with this offer.
