All articles submitted in 2017 now eligible[edit]

For the best article prize, the eligibility period has been extended to all articles submitted in 2017, which makes more sense for a prize. I've updated the prize page. [1]. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 19:41, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Update:Informed consent templates[edit]

As a next step in the Draft of ethics statement, we will need templates of informed consent forms. Fitting examples are located at the WHO site: We are therefore about to ask them for permission to derive our template forms from those.

I hope that there is/will be an initaitive to have this journal indexed in at least Scopus. In India, University Grants Commission and W:Medical Council of India recognise scholarly publication only on the basis of indexing of the journal, such as in Scopus, Web of Science, or Indian Citation Index.

it is a little bit hard to get indexed by SCOPUS, good luck.--Alexmar983 (discusscontribs) 14:10, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
We did apply to SCOPUS earlier this year, but it was declined, mainly because editors were allowed to self-nominate, as well as the lack of a proper ethics statement. We are now tending to both these issues, with associate editors needing to apply, and an Draft of ethics statement under construction (help is appreciated in finishing it).

Upcoming Wiki Science Competition[edit]

I inform also here that the next Wiki Science Competition will start soon. In the end I found a lot of jurors that are related to biology or public health, but if anyone of your editors would like to join last minute, (s)he is always welcome, especially if from a missing country or a woman. I did ask to other editors of open access journals to join in the past months, but they did not reply...--Alexmar983 (discusscontribs) 14:13, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Centralised discussion[edit]

Following was moved from Talk:WikiJournal of Medicine/Bylaws, which now redirects to here. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 19:39, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Should this talk page be redirected to the main Talk:WikiJournal_of_Medicine talk page? It's not used so much that it'd overwhelm the talk page, and it would make bylaw discussion a bit more findable for people who only have that page watchlisted. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 05:28, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

I agree, it's better to centralize these discussions. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 19:28, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
