  • AMIA Launches JAMIA Open, a Gold Open Access Journal

    Today, AMIA, launched JAMIA Open, a new Gold Open Access scholarly publication jamiaopen.org. JAMIA Open is a sibling publication to JAMIA. Neil Sarkar, PhD, MLIS, FACMI, is the editor.  JAMIA Open will include expanded publication formats, such as short application notes and database notes. Dr. Sarkar intends to engage readers with the introduction of “living papers” — which include interactive components such as embedded live code. A signature element in JAMIA Open’s format will be the inclusion of patient/community abstracts accompanying each article, written in language to convey to non-informatics audiences what the research means and how it could be important to care.
