Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine – achievements and perspectives
Andrea Pieroni
Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1746-4269-2-10
Abstract: The success of the journal has been most gratifying. The steady influx of submissions of high scientific standards illustrates the strong demand for a dynamic, proactive, and open-minded scientific journal in these research areas. Our aim has been to dedicate JEE to the "scientific communities" worldwide, particularly those in the developing countries.Last summer we officially launched the Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine (JEE) [1], which is published by BioMedCentral, with the aim of establishing a serious, peer-reviewed, open-access online journal that focuses on the multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary fields of ethnobiology and ethnomedicine, drawing on approaches and methods from both the social and biological sciences. The strong start vindicates the widely-held belief that the journal responds to a real need within the research community.The success of the journal has been most gratifying. The steady influx of submissions of high scientific standards illustrates the strong demand for a dynamic, proactive, and open-minded scientific journal in these research areas. Our aim has been to dedicate JEE to the "scientific communities" worldwide, particularly those in the developing countries.After our launch period ends on February 1st 2006, the journal will be introducing article-processing charges (APC) to cover the costs of publication. These charges will be partly or completely waived for all authors whose institutions are members of BioMedCentral and for scholars in developing countries who are experiencing financial hardship.A recent editorial in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology [2], whose bio-scientific and phytopharmacological rigour is held in great esteem by all of us, lists criteria for immediate rejection of ethnobotanical manuscripts. Included are the following:II. No information about the ethnographic background of the study or about the methods used.IV. The ethnopharmacological frame of reference/theory that forms the b

Welcome to Journal of Ovarian Research
Stefano Palomba, David T Curiel, Sham S Kakar, Fumikazu Kotsuji
Journal of Ovarian Research , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/1757-2215-1-1
Abstract: Such studies have been disseminated to a diffuse subset of journals, which handle studies related to the ovary but are not specialized on the subject. In fact, presently, there is no journal dedicated to covering the extensive research carried out into ovarian functions and possible interactions with other systems regulating the correct function of the female organism. On this basis, it has been difficult to gain a full view of the overall progress and to appreciate the associations within the fields that could predicate productive linkages. As for the case of five blind men and the elephant, a larger understanding of the field's evolution has remained elusive owing to focused studies, reported diversely, which ignored the fields' expansion in its entirety.The need to launch a new journal having ovarian biology/pathology (gender physiopathology) as its only field of interest was a consequence of these considerations. Accordingly, Journal of Ovarian Research aims to face open questions in ovarian biology/pathology using experimental, translational and clinical approaches.The journal will certainly cover research relevant to the, already well-known, reproductive functions of the ovary. In addition, in the last few years, interesting research has been carried out with the aim to investigate the function of the ovary as an endocrine organ; one must consider the intricate signalling networks at ovary level mediated by various paracrine and endocrine factors regulating follicular growth and hormone secretion. Studies in this area will be welcomed by the journal.Research in the area of ovarian cancer is also of great interest. In demonstration of increasing interest on the subject is the creation of ultra-specialised centres for diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer. Due to the specific familiar and genetic traits of ovarian cancer, various studies have been conducted on possible risk factors and innovative therapies. In particular, in the last few years numerous studi
Welcome to Journal of Angiogenesis Research

Vascular Cell , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/2040-2384-1-1
Abstract: The concept of tumor angiogenesis and therapy was proposed by Dr. Judah Folkman, who published the first and probably one of the most cited articles in 1971 [1]. In that article, Folkman showed and discussed early evidence that solid tumors could not grow beyond several millimetres in diameter without blood vessels and they might be held at the nonvascularized dormant stage. He proposed that tumors produce soluble factors to stimulate vessel growth and inhibition of tumor angiogenesis might be a novel approach for cancer therapy. While this hypothesis sounds logical and reasonable now, Folkman experienced unusually unsympathetic criticisms from his colleagues at that time. It took him nearly 30 years to convince the scientific community that his hypothesis was the correct one. We are all very grateful for Dr. Folkman's persistence, which has opened one of the most exciting and fast-expanding research areas in biomedical research. Today, millions of patients suffering from cancer and non-malignant diseases receive anti-angiogenic therapy. For those who work in this field, we are extremely fortunate to see Dr. Folkman's extraordinary achievements that have changed not only our lives but millions of patients.Over the last couple of decades scientists have identified the importance of angiogenesis in determining disease development in association with tissue remodelling. It is now established that therapeutic modulation of the "angiogenic switch", may be a key mechanism for the treatment of these diseases. For these reasons and due to the continual expansion of this area of biomedical research, we are proud to announce the launch of Journal of Angiogenesis Research.Journal of Angiogenesis Research aims to publish articles from all areas of the 'broad spectrum' of vascular research and from the bench to the bed-side. All submitted articles will be screened initially by a member of the journal's Editorial Board and if found to be suitable will be sent out for peer-review
Welcome to the Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
Vipin Zamvar, David P Taggart
Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1749-8090-1-1
Abstract: There are many cardiothoracic journals in the printed form. Most of these are affiliated to national or international societies, and all are subscription-based, thus there is restricted access to the material published. The turnaround time for papers can also be quite long for some of these journals. JCTS will aim to provide a quick and efficient service to authors. Being open access, the material published will be freely available on the internet. All articles will be archived in major databases including PubMed Central.The term open access is self-explanatory. In practical terms, it means that anybody with access to the internet will be able to access and download material published in the JCTS.The main motivation for researchers and clinicians who write papers is the desire to advance the frontiers of knowledge in their speciality. What better medium than an open-access journal that allows anybody, anywhere unfettered access to the results of their work?However, alongside this altruistic aim is a desire to be recognised for their work in a manner that will also help advance their careers. Citation counts of their papers, and impact factors of journals in which they publish are two objective (even though not entirely free of controversy) markers widely used in the scientific community. Open access journals will not put any author at a disadvantage. In fact there is some evidence that open access articles have a greater chance of being cited [1]. For articles published in the JCTS, authors will be able to view the number of times their article has been accessed. There is evidence that the number of accesses in the weeks after publication can be a potentially useful marker of subsequent citation count [2].Authors also value open access, and consider this an important factor in deciding which journal to submit their work to [3].The future of scientific publication is definitely headed in the direction of open access. The internet has profoundly changed the way we com
Welcome to Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks  [PDF]

Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/jsan1010001
Abstract: Sensor and actuator networks have been the focus of a lot of research for quite a number of years now, and results in these fields had a tremendous influence on computer science as a whole. Take for example the fact that energy efficiency questions have never played a major role before, and today, there are journals, conferences, and complete research programs on this important issue. In general, sensor and actuator networks are considered to be an important part of the Future Internet, be it in the Internet-of-Things community, in Smart-City discussions, or in the more general field of Real-World Internet. Therefore, even though we have already come a long way, there is still a lot to do in order to make sensor and actuator networks usable and useful tools for everyday life in all kinds of domains. This new journal wants to provide a forum for researchers in the field to present their ideas and results and to discuss with others in order to advance the state of the art. [...]
Editorial: Welcome to the Journal of Health and Social Sciences
Francesco Chirico, Giuseppe Ferrari
Journal of Health and Social Sciences , 3, DOI: 10.19204/2016/wlcm1
Abstract: Dear Readers, It gives us enormous pleasure to officially launch the inaugural issue of the Journal of Health and Social Sciences. The Journal is an interdisciplinary, open access journal that focuses on the medical and health sciences. Topics of interest to the journal include all branches of medicine and other disciplines related to health such as psychology, social sciences and public, occupational and environmental sciences. According to the World Health Organization’s definition, health is ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’ [1]. Therefore, the leitmotiv throughout Journal of Health and Social Sciences will be “health” in every way.
Welcome to Coatings: a New Open Access Journal  [PDF]
Ugo Bardi,Alessandro Lavacchi
Coatings , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/coatings1010001
Abstract: The journal Coatings is starting its activity as a peer-reviewed, open access journal. As editors, we believe that it will fulfill an important role in the community of researchers and developers in the field of coatings. There already exists several high quality journals dedicated to coatings, but none of them has “free access”, a characteristic that we believe is very important in a field which is traditionally very close? to? industrial? activity? and? where? researchers? aim? not? only? at? academic? research? but? toward products? of? an? industrial? and? marketable? value.? For? these? researchers,? it? is? important? that? they? can publish their results in a journal that guarantees quality that comes from peer-review, but that at the same time breaks the traditional boundaries of academic journals which need a subscription or a pay-per-view option to access the published data.
