JMIR Rehabilitation & Assistive Technologies accepted for PubMed and PMC

Update Jun 8, 2017: The setup process is completed - JMIR Rehab Assist Tech is now in PubMed Central and Pubmed

(Toronto, Mar 31st, 2017) We are pleased to announce that JMIR Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies (JMIR Rehab) has been accepted by the scientific evaluators at NCBI for indexing in PubMed Central and PubMed. The staff at PubMed Central is currently checking our XML files and finalizing the setup and we expect all articles published since Vol 1 / Iss 1 to be in PubMed Central and PubMed within the next couple of months. The acceptance is the result of a rigorous scientific and technical evaluation by the US National Library's (NLM’s) Library Operations Division, which decided that the scientific and editorial character and quality of JMIR Rehab merits its inclusion in PMC. In making this decision NLM has considered the suitability of the journal for the NLM collection as well as the opinions of expert consultants. 

JMIR Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies is the 13th journal of JMIR Publications accepted for PMC/Pubmed. Other titles already in PMC/Pubmed include the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR), interactive Journal of Medical Research (i-JMR), JMIR Research ProtocolsJMIR mHealth and uHealthJMIR Medical InformaticsJMIR Serious GamesJMIR Mental Health, JMIR Human Factors, JMIR Public Health and Surveillance, JMIR Medical Education, JMIR Cancer and Medicine 2.0. In addition, JMIR Diabetes, JMIR Biomed Eng and JMIR Cardio will be submitted shortly.

We are still seeking academic leaders in the field of technology in oncology, cancer survivorship and cancer education and related fields to apply as section editors. There will be remuneration in form of a credit system, rewarding actions such as taking on papers as submission editor. EB members will also be able to use a small discount for their own papers, or papers they invite from other authors. 

Prequisites include a scholalry track-record, demonstrated by being a first author on peer-reviewed publications and having served as peer-reviewer (preferably this should include JMIR journals. Applicants can self-assign themselves to papers to be peer-reviewed at JMIR Preprints).
