I presented an overall review of the development of OAE Publishing Inc. in 2016. A summary of the key events of what has been a very busy year follows.
Plastic and Aesthetic Research (Print ISSN: 2347-9264; Online ISSN: 2349-6150) and Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation (Print ISSN: 2347-8659; Online ISSN: 2349-6142) was launched in June 27, 2014. In April 15, 2015, Journal of Cancer Metastasis and Treatment (Print ISSN: 2394-4722; Online ISSN: 2454-2857) and Hepatoma Research (Print ISSN: 2394-5079; Online ISSN: 2454-2520) was launched. At that time, these four journals cooperated with Medknow Publications. During the cooperation, we aim to provide better service for authors, reviewers and readers, therefore, we are launching our own platform, OAE Publishing Inc.
In January, 2016, all these four journals (Plastic and Aesthetic Research, Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation, Journal of Cancer Metastasis and Treatment and Hepatoma Research) terminated the cooperation with Medknow Publications. These four journals have successfully transferred to OAE Publishing Inc. Then, the frequency of Plastic and Aesthetic Research has been changed from Bimonthly into continuously published. Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation, Journal of Cancer Metastasis and Treatment and Hepatoma Research also have been changed from Quarterly into continuously published. We accelerate the publication speed and make readers and authors easily get our articles after rigorous peer review process as soon as possible. OAE facilitates easier academic exchanges with standard publication ethics. Also, we use iThenticate to check the plagiarism.
In September, 2016, academician Yan Sun and Dai-Ming Fan join in Journal of Cancer Metastasis and Treatment as Honorary-Editors-in-Chief. Vice-chairman of Chinese Society of Clinical Oncology, Shu-kui Qin joins in Hepatoma Research as Honorary-Editor-in-Chief.
In October, 2016, Journal of Cancer Metastasis and Treatment started to use ScholarOne system.
In November, 2016, OAE became the member of European Association of Science Editors. Also, we established the cooperation with The Charlesworth Group. All published articles are under professional language editing.
In December, 2016, OAE started to launch Vessel Plus, Stomatological Disease and Science, Mini-invasive Surgery and Journal of Unexplored Medical Data.
With the coming year 2017, we look forward to continuing to provide high quality scientific research to our readers and better service for scholars.
