Vol. 3 No. 4 (2018): Pain medicine
The fourth issue of the third volume of the scientific and practical journal “Pain Medicine” is offered to your attention
Summing up the three-year progress of the Journal, we can say that the publication really contributed to the formation of a multi-professional circle of like-minded people who study and apply pain control techniques in patients. The audience of the publication and electronic resources in general has grown to 4 thousand participants.
The rules for the preparation and execution of manuscripts are perfected with the approach to the “Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals” developed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, as well as considering the requirements of the Decree No 1112 of 17.10.2012 of the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sports of Ukraine.
The journal adheres to modern principles of working with scientific information. It is present in several authoritative reference and indexing databases (Index Copernicus, Research Gate, World Cat, Google Scholar, General Impact Factor, Journals Impact Factor, Research Bible, Scientific Indexing Services, Open AIRE, Cite Factor, etc.). An important step is adoption to DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals). The way to Scopus is very difficult and responsible, so only together we can do more.
The journal follows the open access policy. All accepted articles are placed indefinitely and free of charge immediately after the issue of the number. Full-text access to scientific articles is presented in real-time on the official website on the specialized Open Journal System platform. Creative Commons Attribution International License CC-BY allows you to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, quote or refer to the full text of any article in this Journal.
Collaboration with Crossref has enabled the rapid indexing of articles and their implementation into scientometric profiles of authors by assigning a Digital Object Identifier (DOI).
In general, during this short time for publication history, the articles of foreign authors, from the United States of America, Serbia, Moldova, the Republic of Belarus and Georgia, were published on the pages of the journal. More than 150 Ukrainian authors got an opportunity to highlight their thoughts and results.
We express our gratitude to all members of the editorial board, editorial council, like-minded people, sponsors and partners for their active participation, cooperation, help and support! Good will come!
Best regards, Deputy Chief Editor of Fundamental Medicine, M.D., Ph.D., Head of Normal Physiology Department of the National Pirogov Memorial University, Vinnytsia
