Geographical distribution of contributors and types of articles published in Electronic Physician in 2009-2015

 

This report describes the international nature of the journal Electronic Physician (ISSN: 2008-5842). The journal established in 2008 and began to publish medical and health science research in 2009. The authors who submitted articles that were published in the first year (2009, Volume 1) were Indian scholars and two authors from Iran. 

 

Consistent with the goal of publishing more international articles, the journal was introduced to academia in a step-by-step process that involved slow, but steady, progress. The number of articles published in the journal increased, and the geographical distribution of the authors, reviewers, editors, and other contributors expanded. In 2009, we published mostly editorials and original articles, but, in recent years, we have published the most common types of contributions, including original articles, systematic reviews, meta analyses, case reports, editorials, research letters and letters to the editor (LTE), traditional reviews, mini-review articles, conference abstracts, hypotheses and ideas, news reports, interviews, short communications, and brief reports.

 

The list below shows each country's share of authors, reviewers, and editors from October 2009 to August 2015. Also, the map (Figure 1) shows that we did attract contributions from all of the inhabited continents of the world. Data were derived from our archives of full-text papers and conference abstracts published in the journal, as well as from the lists of all reviewers, technical editors, language editors, and conference editorial teams who contributed to the work we published from October 2009 to August 2015.

 

The largest numbers of contributors were from Iran, Malaysia, and India, but the geographical origins of the contributors are shown on the map below, and the home countries are listed in alphabetical order, as follows:

Algeria, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, China, Egypt, England, Georgia, Germany, Iran, India, Italy, Malaysia, Nepal, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, and United States of America

Next Editorial:

In April-June 2020 issue, the journal will publish an editorial from Morocco (Dr. Benksim, Higher Institute of Nursing Professions and Health Techniques, Morocco). The editorial talks about lessons from COVID-19 pandemic and the Morocco’s success story. The April-June issue is expected to be published by end of June 2020.


 

The worldwide spread of COVID-19 as an emerging, rapidly evolving situation, and the dramatic need of urgent medicine or vaccine, has rapidly brought new hypotheses for pathophysiology and potential medicinal agents to the fore. It is crucial that the research community provide a way to publish this research in a timely manner.

To contribute to this important public health discussion, the Electronic Physician Journal is excited to announce a fast-track procedure to help researchers publish their articles on COVID-19 related subjects that fall under the broad definition of public health, internal medicine, and pharmacology. We are especially welcome to all hypotheses about the pathological basis of the COVID-19 infection and the possible characteristics of potential medicine and vaccine. Submit your manuscript here
