I am glad to inform you that from our next issue on we will be making
available, in our on line version, every submitted paper, as soon as it
is accepted for publication by the Editorial Board of the Memórias
do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz. The version that will be available will still
be subjected to minor ammendments.
This measure aims at making the reading of a paper available to the
scientific community at least two months before its final version being
published in the printed version. With this we expect to reduce the period
of time between the submission of a manuscript and its publication/availability
to the readers.
Another innovation is that we intend to publish annually an "Editorial
Review" commenting on the journal volume published in the previous
year. With this innovation we will offer our readers an overview of the
number of papers published by the Memórias, their quality and scientific
and social contribution. Together with the Editorial Review, we will make
available some data of our Annual Report and our readers will be able to
follow Memórias' development.
This issue presents our first "Editorial Review" on papers
published in 2001 by the Memórias.
