are pleased to announce International
Archives of Medicine, a new open access journal published by BioMed
Central and encompassing all aspects of medical science and clinical practice.
Archives of Medicine has
a unique relationship with Archivos de
Medicina, a Spanish-language open access journal. Both journals publish
original articles, but authors of articles accepted by Archivos de Medicina
have the option of publishing English translations of their articles in International
Archives of Medicine without a new round of peer review (the translation’s
quality will be checked), and vice versa.
articles published in International Archives of Medicine will link to
the original Spanish-language article via the latter’s Digital Object
Identifier (DOI). BioMed Central’s Independent Journals team
would be happy to discuss further ideas concerning bi-lingual journal twins.
further information about the journal please read the launch Editorial by
Editor-in-Chief Manuel Menéndez González (Hospital Álvarez-Buylla, Mieres,
Spain), who is supported by an international Editorial Board. Readers
interested in keeping abreast with the latest developments of this exciting new
journal can register to receive
