PMC has released expanded information about its
selection process for journals that apply for participation. The current review process has
been in place since November 2014 and focuses
on the scientific rigor and editorial quality of each journal that applies to participate in
PMC. Some of the attributes taken into account as part of this process include the article
content, journal policies, language quality, and presentation of content. The same
assessment considerations are used for reevaluation
of currently participating journals. We encourage you to visit the Journal Selection for PMC page to learn more.
Publishers and journals interested in submitting an application to PMC are also encouraged
to review our updated policies on agreement
types. These policies provide the eligibility criteria for each type of participation
agreement and should be considered alongside the pre-application requirements.
We hope these updates are informative and look forward to hearing your feedback.
