ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Elsevier to publish Mayo Clinic Proceedings. A peer-reviewed journal, Mayo Clinic Proceedings publishes studies in clinical and laboratory medicine, clinical research, basic science research, clinical epidemiology, health policy and general and internal medicine. The journal also offers unique features such as Concise Review for Clinicians, Residents' Clinic, and Symposia on new developments in the practice of medicine.
"In recent years, Mayo Clinic Proceedings has made considerable advances in the quality of information published and the distribution of that information. The engagement of Elsevier as Mayo Clinic Proceedings' publisher will accelerate this progress and help the journal secure its position among the world's leading medical journals," according to William Lanier, M.D., anesthesiologist and editor-in-chief of Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
Mayo Clinic looks to further develop Mayo Clinic Proceedings' e-presence, supporting its evolution into an integrated online journal, improve submission-to-publication times, and continue the growth of its already strong impact.
"Elsevier, the Mayo Foundation, and the Proceedings have a shared goal of serving clinicians, researchers, authors, readers, and patients," says Glen P. Campbell, executive vice president and head of Elsevier's Health Sciences Journals. "This common purpose makes the Proceedings/Elsevier initiative particularly powerful."
The collaboration between the two organizations takes effect Jan. 1, 2012.
Mayo Clinic Proceedings is published monthly by Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research as part of its commitment to the medical education of physicians. The journal has been published for more than 80 years and has a circulation of 130,000 nationally and internationally. Articles are available online.
Elsevier is a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services. The company works in partnership with the global science and health communities to publish more than 2,000 journals, close to 20,000 book titles, and a number of online solutions which help research and health care institutions deliver better outcomes more cost-effectively.
Journalists can become a member of the Mayo Clinic News Network for the latest health, science and research news and access to video, audio, text and graphic elements that can be downloaded or embedded.
