Medical Publishing Insights & Practices launch Enhanced Publication Options Navigator

Medical Publishing Insights & Practices (MPIP) have launched their new Enhanced Publication Options Navigator (EPON). This tool is meant to replace the Open Access Journal Tool for Industry (OA-JTI).

The EPON is a free, easy-to-use tool that collates data from over 450 journals regarding open access publishing, enhanced publication content and plain language summaries. Some of this information may not be readily available on journal websites, making the tool a particularly valuable resource for when deciding on appropriate journal for your publication – particularly if you wish to include any of these features.

The EPON is searchable by journal title, keyword, publisher and/or therapeutic area. It also allows you to narrow down your target journal search by the following characteristics:

  • Open access
    • Journal model (full, hybrid, none)
    • Article policy for industry (gold, green, other)
    • Copyright licenses for industry (CC BY, CC BY-NC, CC BY-NC-ND)
  • Enhanced publication content
    • Type (video, infographics, podcasts, etc)
    • Whether this is peer-reviewed
    • Whether this is freely accessible
  • Plain language summaries
    • If they are accepted
    • Whether they can include graphics
    • Whether they are tagged and linked in PubMed to the original article
    • Whether they are freely accessible
