On behalf of the editorial board of the Greek e-journal of the Perioperative Medicine, we wish you a happy and prosper New Year.Beginning of the 2015 find us in the midway of our difficult effort to reform, enlarge and modernize our journal. This effort has already starting to pay out. The new website is already a reality and the journal is already accepted in several indexing databases:
- DRJI – Directory of Research Journal Indexing,
- Research Bible,
- Journal Index.net
- MJL- Medical journals Links
- ICMJE- International Committee of Medical Journal Editors
- ISI-International Scientific Indexing
- OAJI – Open Access Journal Indexing
- DOAJ – Directory of Open Access Journals
Application for indexing in several others is also under way. Some of them are:
- ASI – Advance Scientific Index
- Google Scholar
- Genamics JournalSeek
The journal has also received several evaluations from some of the aforementioned databases. Thus, e.g. the Research Bible 2012 impact factor was 0.108, the GIF 2013 impact factor was 0.638 and the ISI 2014 impact factor was 1.931.
Enquiry for the requirements of indexing in other databases (PMC, Zetoc, CABI, etc) is also in process. Hopefully, during 2015, we were able to meet the requirements for obtaining DOI number or/and TEI number for the journal and each published article.
All this progress was only achieved thanks to your active support. Thus, we look forward to your further fruitful cooperation, hoping to continue the decent progress so far in the area of the Greek and the international medical press.
