Press Release: New journal launch by the University of Buckingham Press

Thursday 12 March 2009

The University of Buckingham Press is pleased to announce the launch of The West London Medical Journal.

It is with great delight that we announce the birth of this new journal which is designed to give doctors in their early years of training a platform to publish articles of interest. We feel that many worthy articles are unfortunately overlooked by medical journals chasing impact factor. We have encouraged junior doctors to publish here by contacting postgraduate centres in the UK. We hope that the journal in due course will have an international reach with submissions from every corner of the globe. We are also equally keen to encourage medical students to publish work done in relation to their Bachelor of Science projects and other articles of interest. We are confident that the journal will mature into a major international publication of interest to medical students and doctors in training. The journal provides a forum to publish for final year medical students, Junior Doctors and those at ST1 and ST2 level of training. The editors said:

Christopher Woodhead at the Press said: “It is particularly pleasing that the Press and the University Medical School are producing an open access journal. The West London Medical Journal is a quarterly, free, open access online journal publishing the best peer reviewed material submitted by postgraduate medical students from the UK. Open Access journals are a future model for academic publishing and it is good to see The University of Buckingham being part of the movement.”
