About Medknow

Medknow Publications is one of the largest open access publishers in the world. We publish peer-reviewed, online and print-plus-online journals in medicine on behalf of learned societies and associations. We mainly operate the ‘Platinum’ model of open access publishing, providing immediate free access to online journals with no charge to the author or author's institution for submission, processing or publication.

Our Key Strengths

Experience and Expertise
  • Since 1997 we have been publishing high-quality journals, and currently provide services to more than 351 print+online journals.

Online Publishing
  • Online Manuscript System
    We use our own bespoke online manuscript submission and peer review system (www.journalonweb.com). Our international authors have used this system for more than 14 years. To date 0 Manuscripts were submitted in 2016 . Submitting articles online, rather than in hard copy, increases the speed of processing and turnaround.

  • Your journal’s website
    Each journal has its own website, so that medical and scientific professionals working in this area can discover your content easily.

  • Quick and easy dissemination of knowledge
    All journals use the OpenURL standard, making it easy for libraries to link users directly from citation to the full text of the article. Our website receives more than a hundred thousand page downloads in a month. See ‘Medknow Statistically’ on the right of this webpage for live stats on article downloads.

  • Extensive reach
    We archive your journal(s) at a number of key places, such as open access compliant e-print repositories and sites such as Bioline International (www.bioline.org.br) and Clockss (www.clockss.org.br).All the journals are searchable from a single interface on these sites. The journals are also linked from DOAJ (www.doaj.org) and PubMed through LinkOut.
